Food for thought-
Comments from the article:
POTUS is held to a higher standard — NATURAL BORN CITIZEN. The Constitution did not define NBC, but a unanimous Supreme Court decision, Minor v. Happersett, did. To be an NBC, you must be born on U.S. soil or U.S. occupied territory (military bases, embassies, and other U.S. controlled territory) to (and here is the biggie!) UNITED STATES CITIZENS. Not citizen — singular, citizens — plural.
Barry Soetoro (legal name, never changed) is not only NOT an NBC (unless his real biological father is not Barack Obama Sr. — such as Frank Marshall Davis) but Little Barry the Illegitimate Usurper is not even a citizen of the USSA (as it is now after the “fundamental transformation” by the radical revolutionaries which began after the 2008 election).
BTW, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal, are not eligible to be POTUS either.
We are screwed.....
This is not going to end well.

Jeff, have you read the Minor descision or are you going off of the interpretations of others? Virginia Minor’s parents were both US citizens at the time of her birth in the Commonwealth of Virginia in 1824. Because her citizenship was established by parentage and land the Supreme Court specifically declined to explore other possible lines of thought on what constitutes a natural born citizen. Indeed, of the eight possible itterations of parentage and soil the court did not even mention six of them - including Mr. Cruz’s situation. The closest they came to mentioning those other cases was when they brought up - with no objection on their part- earlier federal laws declaring certain people to be natural born (or born) based on parentage but not soil. Them declining to explore these paths makes perfect sense since the Minor descision was not about citizenship per se, but rather was about voting. Minor contended that she should be allowed to vote in Missouri because she was a citizen of the state of Missouri and of these United States. Once her citizenship was established there was no need to further explore the issue in regards to the case at hand. What the Minor descision does establish - in case of fact rather than case of law - is that the court has not made any descisions on cases like Obama or Cruz because if they had, the birther movement would be using them rather than the immaterial Minor decision.
We dont need to worry about running Ted Cruz at this juncture.
Id steer clear if it was me, he has a role but not Chief Executive.
Strengthen the things that remain.
The response is correct - Minor vs. Happersett did not, in any way, shape, manor, or form, make the declaration that so many claim that it did - indeed, the court clearly stated that matter was not before them to decide in that ruling. Many other rulings have indeed made specific declarations about it, which those who cling to the incorrect declarations about Minor conveniently ignore.
