Read the law.
I find it exceedingly odd that the all of the POTUS nominees since Bush have been of odd birthplace, or questionable status. McCain - Panama, Romney- Father born in Mexico, Obama - Father not a citizen, Obama born a British Subject, than possibly adopted by Soetoro etc... It almost seems too bizarre to be purely a coincidence.
I just got in from a fishing trip from last night little jeremiah. I think Cruz stated the true facts of what he is, a U.S. Citizen BUT he didn’t say that to mean he was ineligible. I think he stated it to bring debate to the issue because the term ‘Natural Born Citizen’ does not like to be talked about by liberals or the media because it the focus will shift to Obama. They prefer U.S. Citizen instead. So I think this is a psychological game by Ted to see if the libs will turn full birther because if they do, it forces discussion about Obama’s eligibility. That’s just my take for now.
I don’t mind if foreign born US citizens are elected to Congress. What I do mind is that the vast majority of them are avowed leftsts, racists, Communist/socialist party members, riding the gravy train until the wheels fall off, or unprincipled eunuchs.
That’s why the economy is on self destruct.
Not true at all. Based on what?
USC 1401 says that Cruz is "natural born". One would have to show that the US Constitution contradicts 1401 to make 1401 unconstitutional, and to make Cruz not a NBC.
They wanted someone with a strong attachment to our country that they gained by being born with it.
Three of our first four Presidents held dual citizenship with another country.
While they were President.
George Washington (1), Thomas Jefferson (3), and James Madison (4).
There is not hint that they ever renounced that dual citizenship, that they ever talked about it, or that anybody in the country ever gave a damn.
They were all native born Americans.
John Adams (2) did not.
Exactly. I vote for Netanyahu when he’s finished his term in Israel.
Really makes me wonder about some of their motives, esp. those with pretty recent signup dates.
Cruz was naturalized at birth if his mother met the criteria under Sec. 301 (a) of the Immigration and Nationality Act of 1952.
I read the law. YOU read the law.
Really? Where specifically?
Someone cared enough to include a passage in the CONSTITUTION to address their eligibility as ‘grandfathered in’. And here you have been trying to convince us for all these weeks that you know the Constitution! Check your talking points ...
Thank you for your take. I very much hope you are correct. I will take back every disparaging word I said about them, publicly!
I mean disparaing word about him.
I must preview every comment.
“8 U.S.C. § 1401 The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:”
He just has to get his comments in. Maybe paid by comment?
And hopes some readers will be duped.
