It is very unfortunate that people like Ted and Rubio are more focused on their personal political ambitions than the best interest of our Republic. Obama could be taken down so easily by anyone in this position. Once they proclaim themselves ineligible for office, it naturally follows that Obama is also ineligible. But as long as no Republican will stand up and rightly disqualify himself, the charade of Obama eligibility continues. Any real American patriot would have already taken these simple steps to end the Obama fraud.
Ted Cruz – A Case Study on Natural Born
Posted By Sharon Rondeau On Saturday, June 7, 2014
(Jun. 7, 2014) — Republican U.S. Senator from Texas Ted Cruz represents a perfect opportunity for the American “constitutionalist” to examine the true Founders’ intent and meaning of the Natural Born Citizen clause found in Article II of the U.S. Constitution, a condition of eligibility for the highest political office in our land, the Oval Office.
Before discussing the case study, I want to state for the record that it is Ted Cruz’s unique condition which makes him perfect for the study, not his vigorous conservative stance in the U.S. Senate. No matter how much I may agree with Senator Cruz’s political positions, I am first and foremost an American Constitutionalist, defined as one who has studied, knows, understands and respects the Rule of Constitutional Law.
Further, I issue this study because I believe that we will either study, know and respect the U.S. Constitution as it was written and ratified, or we will lose our Constitutional Republic and system of self-governance forever. Last, this is a letter sent to Ted Cruz in December of 2013 asking him to clear this matter for the sake of our Constitutional Republic. Cruz never responded to the letter.
The purpose of this study is not to harm Senator Cruz in any way, but rather, to establish the facts about his individual citizenship status as it relates to Article II requirements for the Oval Office, which include the following requirement – “No person except a natural born citizen, or a citizen of the United States, at the time of the adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the office of President;”
Fundamentally, the term Natural Born, while commonly acknowledged in many common law courts around the globe, is a term based in Natural Law. It is a condition that exists in Nature, as opposed to only in man-made laws. Not only is it a condition which exists in Natural Law, but as such, it is inalienable by any man-made law or even constitutional amendment.
Simply stated, “As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.”
Many competing opinions have been issued on the “true meaning” of the term Natural Born Citizen. The Cruz circumstance presents an opportunity to delve into that true meaning in great detail and demonstrate in the end, not only what Natural Born Citizen means, but why our Founders made it a condition for the highest political office in our land.
The information presented in this case study should be used to vet all political persons, no matter their partisan leanings. It should be applied equally to all who seek high political office in the United States, without regard for partisan ambitions.
