I don't know about you but it is my firm belief that when the GOP puts another non-qualified candidate up even if it is for VP there is going to be a revolt in their voting bloc that they are not counting on. I know many are saying Anybody But Obama, but I think we are in danger of losing the election even before it gets started because many will not accept another person that does not qualify under the Constitution. This is my letter to Rubio addressing this issue. I hope he considers going public with his lack of qualification under Article II, Section I, Clause V of the U.S. Constitution.

Dear Senator Rubio,
Something has been bothering me for awhile and when I heard you flub the answer to the VP question I decided to write you. No, I am not one of your constituents. I am unfortunately cursed with the representation of Senators Boxer and Feinstein and Representative Waxman. As with any elected official it is anticipated that they would represent all of us, however I have found very deaf ears.
Are you aware of the objective of the MSM as aligned with the DNC and possibly the GOP to use you to destroy this great country, I have heard you say, you love? Or is it on purpose that you allow them to speculate on your candidacy for VP? Jeb Bush, today, offered you up as Mitt Romney’s running mate. Many of us love our country as you do but are without voice to stop the progressives from stealing one of the greatest gifts God gave us beyond his son Jesus Christ. Also it seems the Tea Party phenomenon has not been as successful as we had hoped.
You may ask, how are you being used? From the point of view of many, there is an ineligible office holder in the White House. Constitutionally it can be confirmed, it takes two citizen parents when one is born to be a “natural born citizen” the main qualification. It is my understanding that your parents were not American citizens when you were born. All the obfuscation and ignoring this will not change the fact that either you or Obama is not qualified for the office of POTUS. Your name is constantly brought up as the VP candidate for whoever is chosen for the GOP. You seem, to many, to be extremely articulate and well educated which makes you really likable to the masses. What I find disturbing is that you do not address the issue of eligibility head on. The more your name is brought up or thrown into the ring the less anyone pays attention to what the Constitution says, just like 2008. A simple statement from you of “I’m not qualified under Article II, Section I, Clause V to be President or Vice President” would change the discourse and put an end to the candidacy of Barak Obama as he has yet to present any evidence that isn’t forged of his citizenship.
You will be used to destroy this country if you succumb to the pressure or the attraction of the fame & fortune of the office of Vice President by accepting the nomination. Twenty percent of the conservative voting bloc, in my estimation, will abstain from voting for another unqualified candidate. Do you think a Romney/Rubio ticket can win without that 20% of the vote? That 20% Sir will definitely insure the re-election of the current office holder, an unacceptable outcome for the 2012 election.
You Sir will have been used because you and others like you refuse to address the eligibility issue against the best interests of America. My hope for you and our country is that you stay in the Senate and become a force for change that takes that institution back to the stature it once had, one that truly honors the Constitution as written. We need people like you to bring the freedoms we have lost in my lifetime back for future generations to enjoy.

Rubio has NOT admitted he is not eligible. He has danced around the issue and said he merely wants continue as a Senator...that is not the same thing. Given the opportunity to be 'installed' as Obama was, do you really think he would refuse if pressured?
His big talk coupled with Amnesty efforts, etc....has reduced him to just another lying politician in my mind.
NO!!!! Rubio is not legal to be VP, also, He is one of the traitors that is in there only for the illegals, He represents illegals, not American citizens, hence his f-ing dream act that the majority of American Citizens don't want!!! Now He wants the repubs to push the dream act(nightmare act), and that my friends is talk from the enemy! I wouldn't trust him or mitt as far as I could spit into the wind!!! I will vote for whoever gets the nomination, and if its mitt the sh*t, I will hold my nose while I vote!!! Rubio is for the invasion from the south, we have enough libs for that crap!!! NO MORE AMNESTIES PERIOD!!!!!! The are here illegal, enforce the laws to get them out!!! You may say this is off subject, but it is not, it has a lot to do with your question!!! This is an American that wants this country to remain American!!! We are losing this country to the libs, the muslims, and the illegals....enough is enough!!!
After nearly four years of fighting against an illegal president and for the Constitution I can't imagine voting for anyone who is not Constitutionally eligible including Bobbly Jindal, Marco Rubio, or anyone else who does not meet the Article II requirements. I'm delighted that they have so quickly understood the precepts of the Constitution, but they need to inculcate their children and prepare them for elective office, not run themselves. While we're at it was Romney's father naturalized before Romney was born? Romney's grandfather moved to Mexico and renounced his American citizenship, but I don't know when George returned to America and if he was naturalized. Houston, we have a problem!!
It is time to have a call-in to both Sen. Rubio and Gov. Romney- The VP slot must be a natural born citizen and there are no ifs -ands-or buts- about it!
Well if you keep on thinking the way you are now, Obama will surely get four more years. Or stay home and not vote. It's like cutting off your nose to spite your face.
and that is the 'blackmail' being used to dupe everyone AGAIN.
These types of postings are almost like what Rachel Maddow would do, uninformative, highly speculative and completely out of touch with what the GOP is doing and the country needs. If we want conspiracy theorists, drop the conservative label, join OWS and become part of the problem. OR you can become a true conservative, stop with the BS posts and out of touch with reality theories and work as a team to win in November. For all those who feel Romney is not worth voting for, is Obama? If Obama needs to go, they you will be voting for Romney....that is reality folks, deal with it.
Great letter to Rubio. It seems to me early on, that he said he was not eligible, lets hope he does the right thing.
Not a great letter, this letter is actually disrespectful and if I were the Senator, I would not show any commitment to "patriots" in this style because we will have caused ourselves, this site and everything we represent to be seen as racist, extremist and out of touch and they will be correct. We need to stop this liberal like action and become conservatives as the country needs. NO more psuedo-intellectual tantrums and work to get the problems solved. This letter is not from a conservative, it is from an extremist and does not represent what this country needs.
Thanks Stingray. I don't think Michael understood the point of the letter. Can you imagine what the media would should Rubio make the statement that he is not qualified under the Constitution an then go on to say neither is Obama? The DNC would have to come up with a replacement candidate and maybe that would also free the courts to do what they should have 3 years ago, put the usurper in jail.
I think you are right Michael must have been a troll or he is on Romney's payroll. I can't remember his name on this site.
I should have read this before my post. Ah, well, the sentiment stands.
If Rubio made such a statement, the media would do their very best to keep the story from coming out. If he did make such a statement, he would be dismissed immediately as a buffoon for "...not understanding 'the Constitution'..." "HE'S A BIRTHER!" Furthermore, although I really don't picture myself in a foil hat, I think that Mr. Rubio would receive/is receiving a lot of enticements/pressure from a lot of groups to not go on record with any such thing.
If Rubio gets the VP nod, I don't see any way to reclaim the republic peacefully.
