Marco Rubio aka Water Boy
Vanity | 2/14/2013 | Vendome

Posted on 02/14/2013 5:50:35 PM PST by Vendome

Freepers!

Marco Rubio is just great and what a sense of humor. This is exactly how to respond to liberal hubris and their synthetic, hibrow, intellect.

You need this water bottle if only to get Marco notice from now on.

He is going to be Yuge and you need to support him.

It's Here!  It's Here!  Marco Rubio carries water for the rest of us. 
 
Get one now and make Marco the talk of Sunday News shows buy your water bottle
 
 
Go here to buy your water bottle.  It's by Marco Rubio and he endorses what you put it in.
 
Heck, I'm going to use it as a flask.  Yep, that's right, just gonna fill it with Scotch or when I go snowboarding put vodka and diet coke in it.
 
This ain't no gimmick like sumb Dumb squishy ball.  You can actually use it.
 
The left means to dilute our message and is looking for an opportunity to increase their numbers in 2014 in the House.
 
Don't see how they can but, we can help our side win and build their war chest in advance to a size that is so Yuge!  It will be insurmountable and they won't even want to try to advance up that mountain.  They'll seek out weaker candidates but, by then we'll have identified who needs our loot and put our shoulders and wallet behind them.
 
So get yer bottle now.  It only hurts while you punch your credit/ATM card in and then you'll forget about it until your Chiney White Bottle arrives, then you'll be proud you did something that will help you advance our philosophy.
 
Do it!  Do it Now!

I don't donate to "republicans" in any way. You can waste all your money if you want to. Even if elected, nothing new will happen. This is a rigged game with "two parties" who are the same.

Good luck.

The 14th Amendment does not make anyone a “natural born citizen”. The words “natural born” appears nowhere in the Amendment.

Nor did the 14th Amendment change in any way the natural born requirement for the office of President

A man with parents who are both citizens of another country, though he were born on the steps of the Capitol, is not a natural born citizen.

He is an citizen, thus eligible to be a Senator or a Congressman, as long as the age and residency requirements are met.

But not eligible to be a President.

Please produce an opinion by the writers of the 14th Amendment that says otherwise.

There are two waysto become a citizen of the United States.

In the first case, anyone who is a citizen by nature of his birth is a “natural born citizen.”

The other way is to enter an become a citizen, or a naturalized citizen.

Rubio, being born in Miami, Florida, is a natural born citizen.

No, it is your entire post which makes no sense.

The only way Marco Rubio qualifies to even be an American citizen is by virtue of the 14th Amendment.That is because he was born in the United States, even though his parents were not citizens.And it could be argued that his parents were subject to the Cuban authorities as Cuban nationals.

You said to check the Constitution.

I did. The 14th Amendment says nothing about a natural born citizen.

"Natural born" had a meaning in 1787. Place of birth, plus citizenship of parents, were factors in this determination.It is why the phrase even appears in the eligibility requirements for President.

You quote no source for your definiiton. Kindly do so.

It’s not about the 14th...read post 16, it’s about how you become a citizen.

If you have evidence that there is an extra Constitutional requirement to have parents who are also citizens, I’d like to see your evidence.

Qualifications for the Office of President

Age and Citizenship requirements - US Constitution, Article II, Section 1

No person except a ***natural born citizen***, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained to the age of thirty-five years, and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

Your answer is not sufficient to the question posed.

My evidence is historical. Look up the Constitutional Convention discussions on why the natural born requirement was put in the eligibility requirements for President.

There were at least two copies of Vattel’s “Laws of Nations” referenced in the Convention, courtesy of both Benjamin Franklin and George Washington, and possibly a third from Mr. Franklin.The folks in that Convention knew the meaning of the term. It was not a secret.

Natural born does not mean naturally born.

Do your own research.

Before you ask me for more evidence, please provide your own for the questions posed to you.

a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution

This class of citizens is deceased and no longer eligible.

Thus the only class left is "natural born".

The definition at the time was "born in the country of parents(plural) who were also citizens". This definition was quoted in Supreme Court cases, including Minor.

Guess those Justices didn't know what they were talking about either.

I respectfully disagree, in part.

It's the parental citizenship that matters. The place of birth is immaterial.

The phrase 'natural-born comes from Natural Law...a.k.a. the Law of Nature and Nations by Vattel. In a nutshell, natural born citizenship is hereditary...you get it from your parents. If they are either a natural-born or naturalized citizen at the time of the birth of the child, the child is natural born - and it doesn't matter where the birth occurs.

I do how ever, agree the 14th does not convey natural-born citizenship.

By it's current interpretation, it splits the Original meaning of natural born into a separate type of citizenship: native born, or a naturalization-at-birth on children of aliens and foreigners.

And it is blatantly unconstitutional.

There is also historical precedent that Natural Born Citizen means being born, and not naturalized, in the US.

The first presidential nominee of the Republican Party, in 1856, was John Charles Fremont. He was born in Georgia to an American mother and a French father. Jean Charles Fremon was born a French citizen, near Lyon, France. He was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his son’s birth and never did become a citizen. Abraham Lincoln campaigned for Fremont. All the founders of the Republican Party campaigned for Fremont.

So, we have strong historical precedent.

Tail wags the dog, eh?

The definition is correct, and Obama should not be the President.

But hey, who is going to argue with a rock star, first black (actually half-black) President?

This is why definitions and the Constitution are so important. It is not my fault or yours that our entire government made a deliberate choice to deceive the American public.

Well, Fremont never became President.

The only precedent we have is Chester Arthur, who lied about his father’s citizenship status at the time of Arthur’s birth.
His father was a Canadian citizen. The lie was the father had become a citizen of the Us prior to Arthur’s birth.

Quite a big deal was made of it at the time, and records were not like they are today, so he got away with it. Later on, the lie became known.

MT, Thank you for your post. I was using the Minor decision about the “in country” part.

Hope this is helpful:

In the case, Minor v. Happersett (1874), Minor, a woman, wanted to register to vote in the federal Presidential election and was denied registration because of her gender.

Deliberating this case, the Supreme Court recognized that the Constitutional framers did not define ‘natural born Citizen’ but that they did know its meaning and that it was different from ‘Citizen’ as stated in our Constitution. It was the framers who made this distinction, and the Court rendered unanimously the definition that children born of parents (note the plural) who are citizens are natural born citizens eligible for the Presidency.

The courts decision states: “The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners.”

In Minor v. Happersett the Supreme Court fully understood and applied the Principles of Constitutional Construction in their decision.

The first seven Presidents were ‘Citizens’ of the United States and not ‘natural born Citizens’, yet they qualified for the office (Washington through Jackson); because they were citizens “at the time of the adoption of [the] Constitution!” These Presidents had lived through the Revolutionary War, they were patriots, loved our country at the exclusion of Great Britain, and held allegiance to our country as patriots. The founders recognized that a ‘natural born Citizen’, being born to ‘Citizen’ parents (plural) would have the same regard and love of country as these founders; at least that was their hope, prayer and intention.

The founders recognized that congress may define at any time who can become a citizen and how they become a citizen; one only need to begin reading the naturalization acts passed by congress, and include the 14th Amendment. These enactments define citizenship and naturalization of citizens but never define the eligibility requirement for President of the United States because it is already constitutionally established.

The constitution supports the Natural Born vs. Naturalized Definition.

Natural born is being born a legitimate citizen in the US.

As Fremont sets in historical precedent. If there was a problem, Constitutionalists of the day would have balked at Fremont.

"We have to work toward our principles and we won’t get 100% of anyone for idealism."

What I'm trying to say is that it appears he's deliberately frontrunning TEA. He'll do plenty of grandstanding on conservative issues until we have solid majorities in the house, and then turn into a "reach-across" artist like McCain. I'm glad he's in the Senate rather than Crist, who was openly hostile to conservative causes, but that's as far as I would go.

Your definition of natural born citizen has no support in case law, nor has any contextual basis in the Constitution.

In fact, there’s many been numerous Presidents who don’t meet your criteria of “natural born citizen.”
