Yes, "born a citizen of the United States", not, "born a native of the United States".<quoted text>
Yes, you should admit you are wrong. I guess now you are telling us that the SCOTUS is wrong when it clearly explained to you what a "Natural Born Citizen" is?
You really need to educate yourself Rose, you are ignorant.
I will give you a free education.
What you claim- "Natural Born Citizen" simply means "Born a Citizen"- is completely wrong, and is exactly what Alexander Hamilton proposed at the Constitutional Convention:
June 18th, 1787 - Alexander Hamilton suggests that the requirement be added, as: "No person shall be eligible to the office of President of the United
States unless he be now a Citizen of one of the States, or hereafter be born a Citizen of the United States."
Again, natural born citizen, not native.July 25, 1787 (~5 weeks later)- John Jay writes a letter to General Washington (president of the Constitutional Convention): "Permit me to hint, whether it would be wise and seasonable to provide a strong check to the admission of Foreigners into the administration of our national Government; and to declare expressly that the Commander in Chief of the American army shall not be given to nor devolve on, any but a natural born Citizen."
First of all, none of those letters are part of the Constitution. Second, none of them say you have to be born in the US to be President. Again, you have to be a natural born citizen, you don't have to be a native.September 2nd, 1787 George Washington pens a letter to John Jay. The last line reads: "I thank you for the hints contained in your letter"
September 4th, 1787 (~6 weeks after Jay's letter and just 2 days after Washington wrote back to Jay)- The "Natural Born Citizen" requirement is now found in their drafts
So no Rose, it is not the same, and the founders knew it.
And deal with it B!TCH..
You are uneducated, and if it weren't for google searches, you wouldn't even be able to enter into this conversation as you are completely clueless.
So, clam down and actually read and try to understand what you copy/paste before you do. Maybe some Pamprin will help.
I'm uneducated!? LOLSER. If you only knew...
