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

Raising Revenue is good, We also should cut Expenses at the same time
and staring with the 1% makes sense.

Again, Africa is a continent; the US is a country so the population difference is not applicable.

And please don’t say you meant the Americas because Africa’s population would certainly not be very much bigger

The US Constitution does recognize that everyone born in the US (not the child of persons with diplomatic immunity or foreign hostile occupying troops) is a natural born US citizen.(A natural born American citizen, hee hee.)

US law determines who is a US citizen, not a British citizen. Duh!

That's why it's called US law, Dumbo.

No, but the police and the military carried the same weapons people would carry at the time!
Again, it comes down to the definition of "arm" which is a one person weapon. It is not an attack submarine, a tank, an Apache helicopter, etc. It could be a knife, a sword, a hand gun, a long gun, etc.!
And it has nothing to do with hunting. It has to do with slelf defence, defense of your family and community and your state and your country!

It does not matter how you cut the mustard, you are far off better if you live in America (the United States of ...) than in any country in Africa. If you can find a better country, please move there.

According to Forbes, there are 1,153 billionaires on this Earth and 400 of them live in the U.S.
We are about 5% of the Earths populations but we have about 25% of all the wealth of the world right here in America.
Out of the 11 billionaires in Africa, only three looked to be "black", one looked Asian, three looked European and the rest looked to be Arabs.
If it were not for the Europeans, Africa would be next to knothing in wealth.

Wrong.

Dual citizenship of children born in the United States to alien parents was recognized by courts since the founding of this nation.

In 1795 the United States Supreme Court in Talbot v. Jenson, 3 U.S. 133, 165 (1795) used the term "double citizenship."

In fact, the courts have acknowledged that children with dual citizenship have the right to election to which nationality they will choose at their majority. See Inglis v. Trustees of Sailor's Snug Harbour, 28 U.S.99, 122(1830)("This right of election must necessarily exist, in all revolutions like ours, and is so well established by adjudged cases, that it is entirely unnecessary to enter into an examination of the authorities. The only difficulty that can arise is, to determine the time when the election should have been made); Shanks v. Dupont, 28 U.S. 242, 245 ("Whether she was of age during this time does not appear. If she was, then her birth and residence might be deemed to constitute her by election a citizen of South Carolina.")

The court in Perkins v. Elg, 99 F. 2d 408, 412 (D.C. Cir. 1938), aff'd, 307 U. S. 325,(1939), articulated the rationale of this right of election when it observed: "no principle is better settled than that birth in the United States, irrespective of the nationality of the parents, confers American citizenship. The right of election of nationality, which it is generally conceded a person born under such circumstances has, cannot be exercised until he attains his majority. The father cannot by any act of his alter the status conferred upon the son by his birth in this country."

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.
Correct.

At the time of his birth in the United States, Obama's owed complete allegiance to the United States. Dual citizenship at birth does not mean dual allegiance at birth. Obama owed no allegiance to his father's country because his father's country had no jurisdiction over Obama while he resided in the United States.

Courts have long recognized that foreign nations have no jurisdiction over its citizens or subjects in the United States. "[T]he legal status of foreign nationals in the United States is determined solely by our domestic law — foreign law confers no privilege in this country that our courts are bound to recognize." Vanity Fair Mills v. T. Eaton Co., 234 F. 2d 633, 638-639 (2nd Cir. 1956). See also Rundell v. La Campagnie Generale Transatlantique, 100 Fed. 655, 660 (7th Cir. 1900)("Such laws may give rise to personal relations between the sovereign and subjects, to be enforced in his own domains; but they do not rightfully extend to other nations.”)

Moreover, United States' jurisdiction over Obama while he was residing in the United States is complete and it does not share its jurisdiction with other nations since other nations do not extend their jurisdiction within the United States. "`no sovereignty can extend its process beyond its own territorial limits, to subject other persons or property to its judicial decisions. Every exertion of authority beyond these limits is a mere nullity, and incapable of binding such persons or property in other tribunals;'" Grover & Baker Sewing Machine Co. v. Radcliffe 137 U.S. 287,296 (1890)

"In our territory, the alien is "subjected," no less completely than the citizen, to the jurisdiction of our courts (jurisdiction in the narrower sense) and to the general authority of our government (jurisdiction in the wider sense). Aliens, in the language of the common law, are temporary subjects of the state in which they sojourn; they owe the sovereign who harbors them in his domains temporary or local allegiance. The phrase "born subject to the jurisdiction" is therefore precisely equivalent to the common law expression "born under the actual obedience." — The constitution, then, invests with citizenship all persons born under the jurisdiction or obedience of the United States, without regard to the nationality of their parents or to the opposing claims of foreign states." Munroe Smith,“The Law of Nationality”( 1883) Page 948-949

As such, United States jurisdiction over Obama was exclusive and absolute at the time of his birth. "The jurisdiction of the nation within its own territory is necessarily exclusive and absolute." Schooner Exchange v. McFaddon, 11 U.S. 116, 136 (1812

<quoted text>
Quite the contrary, the constitution only recognizes persons who are eligible to become "subject to the jurisdiction, thereof", remember the "and" part. Aliens born here are not, Obama was born a citizen of his father's country, which would make him an alien. Now remember the US Government can't strip a citizenship away, unless by the request of the individual, by naturalization.
Oh, Obama was a baby! That is right and under the jurisdiction of his father and the father's country of origin.
