The US Constitution has never recognized a dual-citizenship status, nor can the US Government strip a foreign citizenship from anyone, unless requested by the individual, through naturalization.
Obama was born a citizen of his father's country, this condition has never changed.
Obama was born an alien and still remains one, not eligible to hold the office of POTUS.

That is right. The US constitution says nothing about dual citizenship status. Since it does not specifically exclude dual citizens from being eligible and since the meaning of Natural Born Citizen includes even dual citizens, dual citizens ARE eligible. And there have already been several dual citizens who were President of the USA, including Thomas Jefferson and James Madison (who had been made full voting citizens of France by the French National Assembly), and Woodrow Wilson who was a dual citizen of Britain at birth since his mother had never relinquished British citizenship when she became a US citizen by marriage.

Obama’s scare tactics and stretching of the truth sway a lot voters that do not dig down deep for the real story.
The majority of the voters in recent years are head line readers. Also the fact that they may be held accountable for themselves is frighting to these new voters.
Our nation is changing my friend, unfortunately it is for the worse. Maybe not in our lifetimes but certainly in our children's lifetime they will see the change of power away from America.
China, India maybe someone else will take our place.
I can guarantee you this, they will not be looking out for America as we were looking out for them!
Poor thing! You sound like Sitting Bull when he just gave up and joined Bill Cody’s Wild West show.

Of course the nation is changing. It always has and it’s usually for the better.

Personally, I neither hate not love billionaires, as I don't know even one. However, I think that they should pay a higher percentage of income tax than me. A mere 5-point percentage hike in their tax would mean nothing to them, a dent, but a lot for the economy. Does that mean I hate them?

You have to go down all the way to #8 to find a non-white African billionaire!
How would you know who’s white or black Rogue? Were you relying strictly on looks? If so did you miss number 1?

The Second Amendment. "Arms" are any weapon that can be used by an individual. A machine gun, bazooka, etc. are crew served weapons but an fully automatic assault rifle is and there are no provisions in the Second Amendment that allows any one or any government to infringe in your rights to have, own, carry a AK-47.
You mean there were AK-47s when the second amendment was passed? semi-automatic rifles, multiple and up-to 20 bullet magazine hand guns? Don't you think the 2nd amendment is dépassé? What's ANY citizen doing with those weapons which were to be invented 150 years later?

Of course, the 150 or so cases thrown out by the courts might prove otherwise, to a rational person, I mean.

And "The Second Amendment. "Arms" are any weapon that can be used by an individual". That's a very moot area. Not black or white, but gray. The NRA would fight that one and probably win. You could probably own a tank, anti-aircraft battery, and F-16 for all I know.

Wilson's father was a US citizen, that is all that counts.
Until the Civil Rights Act of 1866, which was carried over into the 14th, the states made the citizens and made a mess of it, that is not the case any-longer, is it!

How does a higher tax rate for the wealthy help the economy?
