WHY?

[1]
It is well know and every-body know that
today,
human-rights-group are the strongest Labor-Organizations.

[2]
And, such rights-groups inevatably must have connections internationaly.

[3]
So, you are forcing American-people to so-called (YOU CALL THEM) left-international-social-grou ps.

American-people need groups which protect them!
American-people need groups which can use collective-power.

[4]
You have been destroying Amerinca-Labor-Unions.
You have been attacking Americna-Labor-Unions.

Then, Amerinca-Labor-Unions lost power.

So, American-people searched another groups which can protect them!

As a result,
gay-right-groups and international-groups have power and gather American-people.

[5]
You donot understand the people.
Or, you are underestimating people.
No people will die without resistance.

You cannot understand this?

Then, you are spoiled-stupid-lazy-dull-disgu sting-boys.

American-politicians, top1%, you, econommists
must get your guns, come to Afghanistan, live with Afghanistan-people and fight against terrorists.

Then,
American-politicians, top1%, you, econommists will understand.

[6]
SO.
I think that
American-politicians, top1%, you, econommists
are violating Americna-constitution!

American-politicians, top1%, you, econommists
are commiting treason.

American-politicians, top1%, you, econommists
are destroyuing our America.

[7]
You hate international?
You have complicated feelings towards gay?

Then, you must protect Americans.

There aren't.
The produce would rot in the trees and the fields waiting for Americans to get off the couch and go to work.
The reason they're on the couch in the first place is because financially irresponsible Democrats have made it more profitable for them to stay home and collect free government money than to work for what illegal aliens are paid. The highest paid welfare or unemployment recipient should be getting less than the lowest paid worker in the US. If there were no freebies and no illegal aliens you would see wages rise and Americans working. Unfortunately, the Democrats love giving other peoples money away and they also love illegal aliens. Both parties suck but yours sucks more.

Because you would know -short of starving or desperate- no American will work or has worked would work in the trees or the fields doing what only illegal immigrants will do.
Or you are prolific liar.
Or both.
Pay a decent wage?
It's much easier to pay a Mexican and then complain about him taking American jobs.
That's exactly what the plantation owners said many years ago. It looks like the pro slavery party, the Democrats, hasn't changed so much after all.

Ted Cruz cannot run for President he's from Canada . Does not matter if his mother was American. Unless she was a soldier or diplomat stationed in Canada, he's a Canadian. Since tea party conservatives value the constitution above anything else but God and family . They will not choose him for president.

Your opinion does not make anyone a liar. Americans do plenty of unpleasant jobs as long as they get PAID for them!

I don't give a hoot about complaining. I want genuine action. I'd rather not pull any vigilante stunts like the "minutemen" but if political hacks ignore the people, I'll support the minutemen. Problem solved!

If Cruz is a Canadian then you're right, he can't run for president. I think your explanation of why he is a Canadian might be a little simplistic.

Nice catch! Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta. The Constitution forbids him from being elected president.

Of course, that doesn't mean that a biased Congress might not try to change the Constitution. When Schwarzenegger was elected governor, the Republicans were considering options if he proved to be popular.

Nothing simplistic about it. The only way Cruz would qualify would be if he was a resident of one of the colonies before the nation was founded! I doubt that!

So there are no exceptions? What if his mother was on vacation in Canada when she had the baby?

Actually, it is possible and apparently the right steps were taken.

So he IS legally capable of being president.

Obama has a birth certificate from the state of Hawaii. Just as Cruz has had his birth registered with the American Consulate, it's all as legal as is required.

I'm not a huge fan of "blueblood" qualifications to begin with. As far as I'm concerned, there are too many barriers to too many things. Too bad if the aristocracy doesn't like seeing the riff-raff hanging out on the street corner.

Who knows, he might make a good one. There seems to be a degree of courage in his family. That's something our recent presidents know nothing about. I'm not sure about him yet. I think he may have proposed a partial amnesty which would prevent me from backing him.

Personally, I think the role of the president is overrated. What's needed is a popular movement, not a messiah figure. The Tea Party has more than one faction among them and a large portion of them appear to be very racist. Those are the kind of people who resent the existing leadership, but they offer none of their own.

I'm still on the fence with the Tea Party as long as they appear to be recruiting a brownshirt caste. If there is a message and not just blind political ambition, and it takes more time to reach the people with that message, then take the time.

Cruz is a Canadian... as of this minute, as much a Canadian as an American.
