Just what I thought. I looney-tooney-lefty site siting a lefty poll! Sorry Buckeye, not good enough. Your article is written May 5th and here is one by Gallup written after your article and it says only 47% say that Obama is definitely born in U.S.!

Sorry, I couldn't find a looney-tooney birther site.
So. Which one will you believe? Whichever one vilifies the President, no?

If jurisdiction is laws, as you say, then an alien subject to the laws of the US is subject to the jurisdiction of the US and his children born in the US are born citizens of the US. Persons born citizens in this country have always been recognized as natural born citizens. BTW it was James Madison in referring to the tie of natural allegiance declared birth in a country to be the most certain criterion of allegiance. "It is what applies in the United States."
Thank you for agreeing with me and acknowledging your errors.

Ok, I'm not sure to whom you were addressing that,'cause I dont think I ever used the phrase "Native Citizen".
you did worse than that.

You're just trying to be difficult, now. The first line of the first section says that if you're born in the U.S. then you're a citizen. How is it that a Native American is NOT a citizen?

Ain't no such thing as a native American, Native citizen, American citizen or a Native American Citizen, nor an African-American citizen, you will not find any of those in the US Constitution. All persons that are "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof", are United States Citizen or Citizens of the United States, legally there isn't a Nation called America

Even from a non-American, the truth is the truth and it stings, no? I do have a clue, as a matter of fact, many, and I've explained ad infinitum why I have a right to express my opinion here, and I will go on doing it.

Feel free to comment on Canada, good or bad, we have lots of both, like you. Oh, sorry, I forgot, you don't even know where we are, who we are, what we are, how many we are and what system of govt we have. Ignorance. So how can you? Well, fortunately for you and me, it's the total opposite, as I know as much and probably more about the USA than you do.

Ah, NO ONE has held the actual document. NO ONE! A photo copy of a jpg image is not a document!!!
Again, name me the people you have examined the actual document!
I apologize to everyone whom I have chided in the past for cutting and pasting and for putting links in their posts in lieu of actually posying their opinions. I do not do this on a regular basis and feel like a dolt for so doing now. That having been said, Rogue... Here's your sign.
Kind of puts to lie your claim that "NO ONE has held the actual document. NO ONE!".
You could have done the work yourself, and I will not do this again for you. Do your own work. If you'd like to see what your opponent knows, you have to read what he/she reads.

Representatives from the Annenberg Public Policy Center's Political Fact Check project examined the hard copy of the document and verified that it did in fact bear an official seal, and had been signed by Hawaii state registrar Alvin T Onaka (using a signature stamp).
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-132...

FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as "supporting documents" to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said.

Update, Nov. 1: The director of Hawaii’s Department of Health confirmed Oct. 31 that Obama was born in Honolulu.

Rogue will reply with one of the following two :

1. It's from the lame press. No good unless it's from WND.com or FoxNews.com or Americanthinker.com ;

2. He will not reply.

Well, let's just agree that you and I can't agree on the semantics. Just because the Constitution doesn't mention a thing, doesn't mean it doesn't exist. I've read it. Didn't see "microwave" in there, either, but I have one.

PolitiFiction

The website PolitiFact is going to be truth-squadding the Republican convention speakers this week, delivering verdicts on which claims are “mostly true” and which deserve a “pants on fire” rating. Our advice: Pay no attention to those ratings. PolitiFact can’t be trusted to get the story right.

http://www.nationalreview.com/articles/315125...

FactCheck.org , meet Politifact. You both go to the dead pile.
