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.

As far as I remember, Canada allows duel citizenship whereas America does not.
America does allow duel citizenship... such as being born to American parent in a foreign country. what it doesn't allow for is *changing* citizenship, i.e., taking on intentionally a new citizenship as an American (you "quit" when you assume allegiance to another).

He still has Dual Citizenship!
Cruz is still a Canadian.

Right now.

To not be a Canadian, he would have to fill in a form... that would take about sixty seconds.

Winston Churchill was American- had duel citizenship his entire life. He did not have to choose one over the other, and he did not reject the honorary citizenship bestowed upon him by President Kennedy.

Well, I don't think Canada is quite so determined to enforce a "with us or against us" approach to the matter.:)

I thought Cruz already stated he would instantly renounce his heritage, showing what a fickle, shallow person he is?

but then he never followed through with it, showing that even when proving what a dick he is, he isn't to be trusted...

this is the kind of guy you stop inviting to family gatherings for fear of your safety...

Churchill had an American mother but I think he only had the honorary title Kennedy gave him. Wouldn't make much sense to give him an honorary title if he already was one.

The title of Honorary Citizen does not require you to be a foreign- it is a honorific, a symbolic act, not unlike being Knighted by the Queen. This title was conferred on Churchill because his America tie (at least at one point) was at best a technicality... especially given that he would pledge allegiance to the UK monarchs.

Well, I did some digging around and didn't find anything conclusive, just one not-so-official link to a site making your claim. All the rest just referred to the honorary title. Just saying.

You'll never know!

Actually, I use a proxy web browser, just because it annoys the NSA and the advertisers and probably Topix as well....but even then, it isn't smart to trust in it for privacy. Nothing matters more to the NSA then spending my tax dollars to find out all about the skid marks on my underwear! That's where I keep my cell phone so they don't have to try so hard!

Cruz Palin would be twice as good as McCain Palin. It would be a lot better than having that neocon idiot, Ryan, on the ticket. And it would be infinitely better than Hillary and whoever.

Silly! That's not the point! The point is what behavior would be enough to get their interest.

YOU're deluding yourself. Far worse than monitoring my Internet connection has been going on for decades. The only interest I'm interested in is whether or not the NSA is just trying to legitimize what they've been doing for years, or is there another element at work.

No, if I really wanted to stay hidden, I wouldn't be gushing political speech in public, would I? You've already given in and assumed the position of submission. I'm an American, in America. The NSA should not even be thinking about being interested in me.

I think you like the thought of me being bullied by the secret police! I think you'd like to pick my bones once they're through with me. I think you're part of the problem!

Feel free to defend your contemptible lack of patriotism. It's the terrorists and reasons! Right?

For other people who just like to whiz in the Wheeties of Congressmen who flush the nation down the toilet, try Tor Browser, or Epic Browser. Topix has so many trackers embedded in their pages, Tor runs very slow and posts are sometimes blocked so it's nice to have options. Just don't be stupid and do anything that is REALLY illegal!
