Glenn Beck wrong about Cruz eligibiliy, It’s the Constitution stupid not your feelings, Ted Cruz natural born citizen?, Senate Resolution 511 states McCain had 2 US citizen parents & born on US base, Citizen not equivalent to NBC
“Why does Glenn Beck think that he knows more than constitutional scholars and millions of concerned Americans. The definition of natural born citizen has not been settled by the US Supreme Court.”…Citizen Wells
“Why has Obama, since taking the White House, used Justice Department Attorneys, at taxpayer expense, to avoid presenting a legitimate birth certificate and college records?”…Citizen Wells
“And if all others accepted the lie which the Party imposed
–if all records told the same tale–then the lie passed into
history and became truth. “Who controls the past,” ran the
Party slogan, “controls the future: who controls the present
controls the past.”…George Orwell, “1984″
I like Ted Cruz.
I believe that he has the human traits to be a good president.
However, he may not be eligible as a natural born citizen.
My feelings and opinions about him have nothing to do with that.
Too bad Glenn Beck is not guided by reason and adherance to the US Constitution.
I just heard uninformed Glenn Beck insult millions of Americans again for questioning Cruz’s eligibility.
The preponderance of evidence indicates that to be a natural born citizen one must be born in the US to 2 US citizen parents.
This has been debated by constitutional scholars but not settled definitively by the US Supreme Court.
The US Constitution states:
“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 . . . .”
Ted Cruz is a citizen, but since he was not alive at the adoption of the Constitution, he is not by default a natural born citizen.
The Constitution was crafted by individuals with an excellent understanding of the law and a concern for foreign influences.
They made a clear distinction between citizen and natural born citizen.
Senate Resolution 511
April 30, 2008
“Whereas John Sidney McCain, III, was born to American citizens on an American military base in the Panama Canal Zone in 1936: Now, therefore, be it
Resolved, That John Sidney McCain, III, is a `natural born Citizen’ under Article II, Section 1, of the Constitution of the United States.”
McCain had 2 US Citizen parents and was born on an American military base.
That language was included by attorneys on purpose.
