I believe Nikki Haley falls into the same category. Stupid pols can’t figure out what natural born citizen means. Would they be so dismissive if a candidate was only 30 instead of 35?

So aside from being the establishing document for our Republic, it also, I believe, is a representation of the health of our nation. Its very name represents the heartiness of our country and the soul of it.
I believe the further we stray from the Constitution of the United States, the further we stray from our own health. The Founders had an idea and knew what they wanted when it came to leadership in this nature. With such bastardizations of liberty as the 17th Amendment, allowing popular elections of Senators, and the arbitrary freezing of Representatives at 435, we've destroyed threads in the very fabric of our nation's health.
By allowing any man or woman who is not born of parents who are solely loyal to our great nation, we are allowing any man or woman born with fealty to a potential enemy to lead our nation into that enemy's hands.
Regardless of where or when Barack Hussein Soetoro Obama was born and/or raised, his father was known to be loyal to the British by his citizenship alone. This very fact should've disqualified Obama from leading this nation, but it did not.
To allow another man or woman to take the office of President or even Vice President under these pretenses, and regardless of political motives, is to continue to allow the undermining of our nations very fabric of existence.
