And, he will now tell you that I am making the argument from authority error in logic, huh?I've been auditing a number (most) of these Ted Cruz and related eligibility threads for several months. Interests in history and law make the topic a good one. Schedule doesn't allow for much posting (it's a very time-consuming habit), but I'll come off lurking mode for a bit.
Before the Supreme Court will address this issue, there first needs to be at least a few members of the legislative branch making some noise .....
Take Senator Cruz...
Most of us here agree with just about all his positions. BUT many of us conclude that he is NOT constitutionally eligible. Now, Senator Ted Cruz is a constitutional scholar and since he is being considered as a candidate for president in 2016. He definitely is in the right position to render an opinion and make an impact (ie he has standing). But he is avoiding the issue.
In a recent interview, he said that this is a legal question for others to decide and he is not going to engage.
So in the absence of any legitimate person in the legislature putting the issue front and center, why would the Supreme Court of the United States take it on?
As I said in my previous reply to you, IMHO this all must begin in the legislative branch. AND Senator Cruz should be at the forefront. If we do not get leadership from him now, the only conclusion I can come to is that his political ambitions are overcoming his courage to lead. By not taking a position and avoiding the issue, he along with many others including Sarah is complicit in the ineligibility of Obummer.
Cruz had best avoid this fight because his birth facts are known and so is the wording and intent of the Founders. For him to be so stridently apart from other’s thoughts/beliefs will not be taken kindly by many Constitutionally bona fide eligible citizens.
