Well argued.Thank The FOUNDING Fathers ...
but a natural born citizen ...
is NOT Obama and neither is Cruz ...
Common sense has to enter into the conversation, somewhere, and at some point ...
When the founders WROTE the constitution THEY were concerned about *loyalty and ALLEGIANCE* to the Constitutional Republic as WE should be today.
The very IDEA that all you need to hold the highest office in the land and FREE WORLD
is to be BORN here in the US ...
[will qualify 'anyone' to hold it]
is borderline 'mentally retarded'...
IGNORANT if not *treasonous* to
such an idea would work ...
I am no attorney...
I did sleep @ a Holiday Inn last night :)
There are lots of "IGNORANT VOTERS"
who DID just that!
LQQk what kind of SHAPE
the communist CIRCUS
Divided NOT United!
The Divided States of America
The communist CIRCUS of America ...
Thanks to obama :)
SOoooo since obama "did it"
So can CRUZ!
Let the 'rule of law'
go OUT the Window ...
ALL libTARDS have!
ain't you libTARDS
And here is my counter...
Couldn't agree more about loyalty and allegiance. However, There is no "litmus test" for these qualities. Being born here, or having one or both parents born here does not guarantee loyalty or allegiance.
You took my list of people who were not born of two US parents and said that if they were citizens at the time of the adoption of the Constitution they were eligible for Presidency.
... or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the ******Adoption of this Constitution""" "
The problem is... that your entire argument's fulcrum is that they WERE NOT CITIZENS to begin with.
Someone born in the US to TWO foreigners (according to you guys) is not a citizen.(no true allegiance and all that jazz)
Now if they are NOT a citizen at the time the Constitution was adopted. Then nothing changed.
Yet Andrew Jackson became president.
I have to admit... I am exhausted and maybe I am missing something you are saying, or maybe I am mistaken that you and Dale are in agreement.
But would you not agree that Ark 1889 is the current law defining who is and is not a citizen of the US?
Even if you disagree with it.
To be honest, I lean a bit more to your side being that there should be assurance of loyalty. I just don't think assurance can be found in where you or your parents were born. In addition, I don't think it can be absolute... which is the ideal we would imagine for the leader of the free world.
...if any of that makes sense.
I have been awake over 30 hrs and it took me three tries to spell foreigners... so I am obviously not operating on all cylinders.
Off to slip into a mild coma...
