Well, your explanation just doesn’t make sense. It sounds more like you are baiting when you bring in names like DeMint and Palin. You are zeroing into the wrong thing. No wonder we can’t get together when we ourselves conquer and divide our own side.
The Constitution does not define the phrase ‘natural-born citizen’. It’s pretty difficult (if not ridiculous) to argue that someone born in Florida is not a ‘natural-born citizen’
Wake up tools! Rubio is a fraud and an immigration traitor who’ll be lucky to get re-elected to the US Senate seat in the next election. Hell Rubio could not even help the big pro-illegal Romney win FL vs Obama.
You are welcome to your opinion, I don’t mind being called ridiculous for what believing in what has always been the standard.
If you wish to look the other way for Rubio, be my guest and accept Obama also.
‘He was born in Miami. How is that not natural born?’
Allow me to answer -
Natural born citizen is citizenship by nature, i.e. by place of birth AND by parentage - born on US soil to 2 USA citizen parentS.
A natural born citizen has undivided loyalty to USA.
Marco Rubio was born to a father who was not a USA citizen at time of Rubio’s birth. His father was a Cuban citizen at time of Marco’s birth, therefore Marco has dual citizenship - Cuban and USA (if he indeed is a USA citizen due only to his birth in USA)
Who’s says so? Constitution says no such thing.
To be a senator, you must be a citizen.
To be president, you must be a natural-born citizen.
The Constitution says that. There is a clear distinction.
The problem is: the Constitution does not define “nature-born citizen”. There has, of course, been much discussion on this point. Many people point to Vattel’s 18th century book “The Law of Nations” — which was known to the founders — which defines natural-born citizen as someone born in a country, with parents also born in that country.
Because the Supreme Court has not clearly ruled on the issue, it is still somewhat up in the air.
I meant Rubio would lose big among Hispanics to whoever the Dems nominate. I think he’d lose a close overall race similar to Romney.
You could be absolutely right.
The founding fathers relied on ‘Law of Nations’ by Vattel to frame the constitution. The definition is in ‘Law of Nations’. There are numerous supreme court precedents defining nbc as one born on US soil to 2 USA citizen parents. Historic correspondences by the founders also define nbc as such.
Do some research on your own.
Remember- anybody who is born in USA, to parents who are not Americans, have allegiance to the parents’ country. The founders want to ensure that the president has sole allegiance to USA only.
Look at Marco R, his father was NOT a USA citizen at time of Marco’s birth, so Marco has loyalty to Cuba, and, it shows - he is for amnesty for his people here in USA!
