What a load of crap. Vattels book wasnt translated into English until AFTER the Constitution was written.
Oh, boy! What rock have you been hiding under all of this time?
Another dolt who doesn't believe that any of those learned men couldn't read or speak French...the language of diplomacy in that day and age.
You're plodding down a well worn path littered with the corpses of your fellow believers.
Who knows what books anyone read.
Well thanks to our Founding Fathers all of us can know what they, in particular read and used so that we in our modern day can bash ignorant dolts like you about the head with such knowledge.

OK I’m tired of your games. Produce any quote, from any significant figure in history, that actually says that the Founding Fathers or Framers of the Constitution relied on Vattel for their definition of natural born citizen.
