More you Say??<quoted text>
NATURAL born, not NATIVE born. They are two different things. NATURAL born means you were a citizen at the time of your birth. NATIVE born means you were born on US soil. Again, notice the Constitution says NATURAL born. You can be a NATURAL born citizen if one of your parents is a US citizen at the time of your birth, even if you were born on the Moon.
But not so dumb I don't know the difference between natural and native born.
You're just upset you have a black president. LOL @ you.
Ok-- "The first Question is settled by Vattel in the following Paragraph, vizt--." John Jay 1785 ( http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage ...)
Still not enough??
"In order to prove that individuals in a State of nature are equally free & independent he read passages from Locke, Vattel, Lord Summers--Priestly. To prove that the case is the same with States till they surrender"-- Record of Federal COnvention 1787- Madison ( http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage ...)
Had enough yet??
How about a few more..
"The first principle of government is founded on the natural rights of individuals, and in perfect equality. Locke, Vattel, Lord Somers, and Dr. Priestly, all confirm this principle"- Record of the Federal Convention 1787 ( http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage ...)
"I am in Want of the following Books from Messr Jackson & Dunn, & wish to know whether I must send the others to Phila., or deliver them to any Friend of those Gentlemen here. The Books wanted are Vattel's Law of Nations...." Elbridge Gerry to Timothy Pickering 1785-- http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D ...::
"Dear Sir York in Pennsylvania Novr 8. 1777 The following Books are much wanted by some Gentlemen of Congress, & are not to be procured in this Place; if they are to be found in the Pennsylvania Library, which We are informed is removed by Order of your Excellency to Lancaster, I shall be much obliged to You for the Loan thereof being with respect your Excellency's very huml sert,(1) E Gerry
Vattell's Law of Nations" Elbridge Gerry to Thomas Wharton ( http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/D ...::)
Hmm, why would Congress be so interested in getting this book by Vattel if he was so inconsequential to the writting of the US Constitution?? I mean wouldn't they already know British Common law and have no need for Vattel if in fact our laws were based solely on Common Law as you claim??
Need some more??
"I will proceed on first principls. every man out of society is equal, in Freedom, & every other quality of man--Lock, Vattel, & others prove this position" -- Record of he Federal Convention 1787 ( http://rs6.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage ...)
"I am much obliged by the kind present you have made us of your edition of Vattel. It came to us in good season, when the circumstances of a rising state make it necessary frequently to consult the law of nations."-- Charles William Frederic Dumas 1780
Doesn't get much more evident than this that when the Law of Nations was referenced it meant VATTEL!!!
