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.

Pete, From the fourteenth amendment as ratified July 9, 1868
Section 1. "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and the State wherein they reside."
You will notice it does not say "natural born" and "naturalized" is for all aliens who come here legally and apply for citizenship.
This is so simple it make me wonder if anyone in Congress or the Judiciary has read it. The only place in the Constitution where Natural Born Citizen is used is in Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 as one of the qualifications to become President. The media and our ineptocrats in Washington try to use the second part of that clause which says "...or a Citizen of the United States,..." but fail to read beyond the comma that says "at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution". You tell me if anyone of those critters are still above ground. This applies to the VP as whoever it is cannot devolve into the Presidency upon something happening to the President where the duties could no longer be performed. Thus Rubio is not qualified.
Hope this helps.
PS: off topic but the children of illegals are not citizens per this amendment because their parents are not subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S.
I guess what I missed was.... "AND subject to the JURISIDICTION" which means non-citizens, ie Rubio's parents at the time of his birth, right?
This is why the Founders included "Natural Born" as a qualification for POTUS and because VP is next in line.
They wanted Pres. and VP to be loyal only to The US. Commander in /chief should not have any divided loyalty.
I will make a call on what I know, the Abomination is in the White House Illegally with no doj stopping it from continuing, and the deck is being stacked to buy the White House if you have fallowed the money again, and the Spanish company is slated to count your votes.
Going out here just a 1,000,000 of an inch and say Abomination by a landslide.
UNLESS we have a standing in one court and a charge filed we might have strike three.
My focus here is that with what I have read it would not surprise me to see a non qualified VP on the ballot after the 2008 ballot. And my answer to the first question NO I WILL NOT VOTE FOR AN ILLEAGLE PERIOD, even if it is one ticket for both.
Will I vote for a Romney / Rubio ticket? Folks lets get one thing straight here, the Primary issue and main focus is to get rid of Obama and the current administration. It really doesn't matter who "the system" gives us as an alternative. Right now I don't care if they "gave" us Sadam Hussein himself. ANYBODY but OBAMA. The people in this country are angry enough right now that who ever gets elected in November will have about one month (MAX) to get rid of all Obama regulations. The PRIMARY mission now is to prepare your selves for a total meltdown of all American systems, and GET RID OF OBAMA.

"Honey, I'm thinking that there must be, at least, one other babysitter out there."
You are mistaken if you think putting one in eligible into office for another will eradicate the problem we are facing.
The REASON the founders used the NATURAL BORN emphases was for loyalty to the U.S. and without it you will end up with the same outcome.
Based on some bits and pieces of Romney's heritage is he even a natural born citizen? I seem to recall something about the fact that his father was not eligible to run so the question thus arises, is the son?
Good break down on Romney heritage.
Romney's parents, Gaskell Romney (1871–1955) and Anna Amelia Pratt (1876–1926), were American citizens and natives of Utah. They married in 1895 in Mexico and lived in Colonia Dublán in Galeana in the state of Chihuahua (one of the Mormon colonies in Mexico) where George was born on July 8, 1907.
This would make him a Natural-Born Citizen of the USA, even though he was born in Mexico because both his parents were US citizens. Also note that he married a US citizen as well....
Lenore LaFount Romney (born Lenore LaFount [sometimes written Lafount], November 9, 1908 – July 7, 1998) was the wife of American businessman and politician George W. Romney and was First Lady of Michigan from 1963 to 1969. She was the Republican Party nominee for the U.S. Senate in 1970 from Michigan. Her youngest son, Mitt Romney, is the former Governor of Massachusetts as well as a U.S. presidential candidate in 2008 and again in 2012.
Lenore LaFount was born in Logan, Utah, and raised in Salt Lake City. She went to Latter-day Saints High School, where she developed an interest in drama and first met George Romney. She attended the University of Utah and George Washington University, graduating from the latter in 1929
Mitt Romney was born to two US citizens....making him a natural-born US citizen thus qualifying him to the office of the President of the US.
Willard Mitt Romney (born March 12, 1947) is an American businessman and politician. He was the 70th Governor of Massachusetts from 2003 to 2007 and is a candidate for the 2012 Republican Party presidential nomination.
The son of George W. Romney (the former Governor of Michigan
It just occurred to me... With all the noise the media is making about
Romney's wealth, I don't recall such bluster and hand-wringing over the
Kennedy fortune. Or, for that matter, John Kerry. Or the fact that John
Kerry gave virtually nothing to charity while Romney gave something on the
order of $4 million...in addition to his entire inheritance from his father.
Oh. Wait. I just remembered. Romney is Republican.
Kerry and the Kennedys are Democrats.
Also, Romney worked for his money.
Kennedy inherited his.
And Kerry married his.
Never mind. Nothing to see here folks. Move along.
