Veterans and Patriots,
Re-double your efforts to take back Congress...
Ding...Dong...The Tea Party is at the door...Eric Cantor has been defeated in his state Primary.
Republicans should listen to the loud and clear message...
Maybe there is hope after all ! Tired of RINO's and don't trust Dems who proudly proclaim they're socialists. This could get quite interesting as time goes by. What do you think?
There wasn't much of a turnout but hopefully things are going to turn around and more people are getting the message more than we've thought. I believe the cry for "term limits" may be another reason.
And voters are going to stand for the US Constitution in the elections ahead.
June 7, 2014 TED CRUZ – A CASE STUDY ON NATURAL BORN
Ted Cruz is not a Natural Born Citizen and is not eligible to be president, possible not even Senator). Are we being lied to again, and this time by "GOP" (Republican) presidential hopefuls? Is this part of a scheme to justify an ineligible Democrat President Obama and solidify his administration and policies? IF this is to make Barack Obama look legal and to allow a non-American citizen to again lead our government, can we trust any of the several “GOP” presidential hopefuls that also are not eligible because of foreign born parents etc?
When we stand up for our Constitution, we can cancel all the harm done through the Obama Presidency and prevent more unconstitutional efforts in the future. We have a lot to lose by allowing someone who does not comply with our Constitution; how can they truthfully defend our Constitution? This is a lawless society; but God warned us to watch and not allow them to break up our house.
I agree Marie but I hear so many say "Well they did it so why shouldn't we?" Whew! I say because it is both wrong and unconstitunal that's why. We need voters to first SHOW UP TO VOTE and vet the candidates and actually vote. I believe voting is a duty for every American. Now get them out to vote is another problem.
Ted Cruz's mother is American and he renounced his Canadian citizenship, which makes him eligable
TED CRUZ WAS NOT BORN ON USA SOIL, HE HAS 3 CITIZENSHIPS, WHICH DOES NOT ALLOW HIM TO CONSTITUTIONALY BE PRESIDENT OR VICE PRESIDENT BECAUSE BOTH PARENT ARE TO BE CITIZENS OF ONLY THE USA BEFORE TED CRUZ TO BE BORN ON USA SOIL. NONE OF THIS IS PRESENT IN HIS SITUATION, HIS FATHER IS CUBIAN, TED CRUZ BORN ON FOREIGN SOIL IN CANADA WHICH IS DUAL CITIZENSHIP OF FOREIGN NATIONS SO FAR, BUT MOTHER WAS AMERICAN MARRIED TO A FOREIGN CUBIAN, HAVING CANADIAN CITIZENSHIP, THERE IS NO WAY TO RIGHT ALL THE WRONGS JUST TO SAY HE IS ABLE TO BE CONSTITUTIONALLY PRESENTABLE TO SERVE AS PRESIDENT OR VICE PRESIDENT. THIS ALSO APPIES TO BOBBY JINDAL AS FAR AS HIS PARENTS NOT BEING CITIZENS OF THE USA BEFORE HE WAS BORN IN THE USA, WITH PARENTS NOT BEING ONLY USA CITIZENS BUT ALSO OF FOREIGN NATION OF INDIA AT THE TIME OF BOBBY JINDALS BIRTH. SO HE IS NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY ABLE TO BE PRESIDENT OR VICE PRESIDENT. RICK SANTORUM IS NOT CONSTITUTIONALLY ABLE TO BE PRESIDENT EITHER BECAUSE OF HIS PARENTS NOT BEING USA CITIZENS AT HIS BIRTH ALSO. SO YOU CANNOT RIGHT ALL THESE WRONGS JUST TO PUT THEM INTO OFFICE CONSTITUTIONALLY.
I AGREE with you Terri. 100%....Your comment is similar to what i've been trying to tell people (since 2008) about "mr. hussein" ( A Muslim)....
Terri: There is information which others have argued (I don't know the statute at this point in the morning) which states so long as the mother is native born, that is all that matters!
Powerful speech/no teleprompters! MUST SEE! https://secure.piryx.com/donate/0aIqxE3m/Ted-Cruz-Victory-Committee...
Can Ted Cruz run for president if he was born in Canada?
The Republican senator from Texas says he can. And just to be sure, he’s taking theextra step of renouncing the Canadian citizenship he says he didn’t even know he had.
Cruz -- full name: Rafael Edward Cruz --was born in Canada in 1970 because his father was working for the oil industry there. The senator’s recently released birth certificateshows his mother was born in Delaware and his father was born in Cuba. The Cruz family left Canada a few years later. Cruz grew up in Texas and graduated from high school there, later attending Princeton University and Harvard Law School.
By virtue of his American-born mother, Cruz, 42, considers himself a natural born citizen and eligible to run for president.
So is he eligible? The vast majority of legal thought and arguments indicate he is.
Is there the tiniest sliver of uncertainty? Yes, there’s that, too.
The Constitution says any candidate for president must be 35 years of age, a resident within the United States for 14 years and a "natural born citizen."
We’ve looked at the question of natural born citizenship before. Back in 2008, people raised questions about the "natural born" citizenship status of both major party candidates.
We’ve fact-checked several statements about President Barack Obama’s place of birth and his birth certificate. Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, and his mother was a U.S. citizen. His father was Kenyan.
We also looked at the case of John McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone because his American father served in the military. McCain, the 2008 GOP nominee, saw his standing briefly challenged in court.
Interestingly, both of McCain’s potential Democratic opponents -- Obama and then-Sen. Hillary Clinton -- co-sponsored a Senate measure to settle McCain’s eligibility. The April 2008 resolution said, "John Sidney McCain, III, is a 'natural born Citizen' under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States."
Defining "natural born"
So what is a "natural born" citizen? The Constitution doesn’t specifically say.
In 2008, we reviewed research and polled several legal experts. The consensus was that someone is a "natural born" citizen if they have citizenship at birth and don’t have to go through a naturalization process to become a citizen.
If that’s the definition, then Cruz is a natural born citizen by being born to an American mother and having her citizenship at birth. (This same logic would apply to Obama, even if he were born in another country, which he wasn’t.)
The Congressional Research Service published a report on the issue after the 2008 election; the agency is tasked with providing authoritative research to all members of Congress. It, too, supported the thinking that "natural born" citizenship means citizenship held "at birth."
But the Supreme Court -- the ultimate arbiter of constitutional questions -- has never ruled on the matter. And that means a note of uncertainty remains.
Sarah H. Duggin, a professor of law at Catholic University, has written about and studied the issue extensively. She told us in 2008 that the question of natural born citizenship is "one of the most deceptively simple, complex issues."
We reached her again this week to ask about Cruz’s eligibility. "It would be reasonable to interpret the Constitution’s natural born citizenship provision to include children born abroad to U.S. citizens, including Senator Cruz, for a number of reasons," she said.
But is it 100 percent sure?
"Unfortunately, we cannot say for sure without either a definitive Supreme Court ruling, or an amendment to clarify the Constitution."
JOHN Harvey, you HAVE everything WRONG! the Constitution does spell out who can & can not be President! .
