And much much more.

Ever since I first read the US Declaration of Independence as a child, I have loved the message, wording and spirit of this incredible declaration. I still have a copy that I framed as a child and I still look upon it with reverence. I especially love the paragraph beginning, “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” We should treasure these words and the entire document, never take it for granted and reread it as often as possible. My ancestor was a signer of the Tryon Resolves, almost a year before the US declaration. That fact makes the US declaration even more special for me. Here is the US Declaration of Independence:

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States. To prove this, let Facts be submitted to a candid world.

He has refused his Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

He has forbidden his Governors to pass Laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his Assent should be obtained; and when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

He has refused to pass other Laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of Representation in the Legislature, a right inestimable to them and formidable to tyrants only.

He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual, uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their Public Records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

He has dissolved Representative Houses repeatedly, for opposing with manly firmness his invasions on the rights of the people.

He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected, whereby the Legislative Powers, incapable of Annihilation, have returned to the People at large for their exercise; the State remaining in the mean time exposed to all the dangers of invasion from without, and convulsions within.

He has endeavoured to prevent the population of these States; for that purpose obstructing the Laws for Naturalization of Foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migrations hither, and raising the conditions of new Appropriations of Lands.

He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

He has erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

He has kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies without the Consent of our legislatures.

He has affected to render the Military independent of and superior to the Civil Power.

He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution, and unacknowledged by our laws; giving his Assent to their Acts of pretended Legislation:

For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us:

For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

For cutting off our Trade with all parts of the world:

For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

For transporting us beyond Seas to be tried for pretended offences:

For abolishing the free System of English Laws in a neighbouring Province, establishing therein an Arbitrary government, and enlarging its Boundaries so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these Colonies

For taking away our Charters, abolishing our most valuable Laws and altering fundamentally the Forms of our Governments:

For suspending our own Legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

He has abdicated Government here, by declaring us out of his Protection and waging War against us.

He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burnt our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

He is at this time transporting large Armies of foreign Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the Head of a civilized nation.

He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands.

He has excited domestic insurrections amongst us, and has endeavoured to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers, the merciless Indian Savages whose known rule of warfare, is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes and conditions.

In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

Nor have We been wanting in attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them from time to time of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity, and we have conjured them by the ties of our common kindred to disavow these usurpations, which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity, which denounces our Separation, and hold them, as we hold the rest of mankind, Enemies in War, in Peace Friends.

We, therefore, the Representatives of the united States of America, in General Congress, Assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the Name, and by Authority of the good People of these Colonies, solemnly publish and declare, That these united Colonies are, and of Right ought to be Free and Independent States, that they are Absolved from all Allegiance to the British Crown, and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain, is and ought to be totally dissolved; and that as Free and Independent States, they have full Power to levy War, conclude Peace, contract Alliances, establish Commerce, and to do all other Acts and Things which Independent States may of right do. — And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”

    I received an email from a good friend today. The message is so good I had to post it:


    There was a Chemistry professor in a large college that had some exchange students in the class. One day while the class was in the lab the Prof noticed one young man (exchange student) who kept rubbing his back and stretching as if his back hurt.

    The professor asked the young man what was the matter. The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back. He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country who were trying to overthrow his country’s government and install a new communist government. In the midst of his story he looked at the professor and asked a strange question. He asked, ‘ Do you know how to catch wild pigs?’

    The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line. The young man said this was no joke.’You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods and putting corn on the ground. The pigs find it and begin to come everyday to eat the free corn. When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down one side of the place where they are used to coming. When they get used to the fence, they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence. They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue until you
    have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side. The pigs, who are used to the free corn, start to come through the gate to eat, you slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd. Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom. They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught. Soon they go back to eating the free corn. They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity.

    The young man then told the professor that is exactly what he sees happening to America. The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP),
    welfare, medicine, drugs, free medical, etc. while we continually lose our freedoms – just a little at a time.

    One should always remember ‘There is no such thing as a free Lunch! Also, a politician will never provide a service for you cheaper than you can do it yourself.

    Also, if you see that all of this wonderful government ‘help’ is a
    problem confronting the future of democracy in America, you might want to send this on to your friends. If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life then you will probably delete this email, but God help you when the gate slams shut!

    ‘A government big enough to give you everything you want, is big enough to take away everything you have.’ ……..
    Thomas Jefferson

  2. Notice that the grievances listed in the Declaration of Independence are almost verbatim what God warned the Prophet Samuel in Samuel 8 that the king our forefathers wanted to erect over them to take care of them and fight their battles so they could be like the other nations.

    But they didn’t care, they wanted a king over them anyway – they all voted democrat. We have come full circle.

    IT DOESN’T PAY TO LIE TO A SOUTHERN FARMER…especially one from South Carolina.

    A large jet plane crashed on a farm in the middle of rural South Carolina. Panic stricken, the local sheriff mobilized his forces and descended on the farm in force.

    By the time they got there, the aircraft was totally destroyed with only a burned out hull left smoldering in a tree line that bordered the farm.
    The sheriff and his men entered the smoking mess but could find the remains of anyone.

    They spotted a farmer plowing a field not too far away as if nothing
    had happened. They hurried over to the man’s tractor to inquire.

    “Hank,” the sheriff yelled, panting and out of breath, “Did you see this terrible accident happen?”

    “Yep. Sure did,” the farmer mumbled unconcerned, cutting off the tractor’s engine.

    “Do you realize that was Air Force One, the airplane of the President of the United States ?”

    “Yep sure did.” said Hank.

    “Were there any survivors?”

    “Nope. They were all kilt straight out,” the farmer answered. “I done buried them all by myself over by that there tree. Took me most of the morning.”

    “President Obama is dead?” the sheriff asked.

    “Well, now sheriff” the farmer grumbled, and restarted his tractor, “He kept a-saying he wasn’t…

    But you know how bad that sumbitch lies.”
    Like ole Abe once said; ‘You can fool all of the people some of the time, and you can fool some of the people all of the time. but you can’t fool all of the people all of the time……

    Moral of the story;….It doesn’t pay to lie to a South Carolina farmer.

    If anyone can name me just ONE POSITIVE thing Hillary Clinton had accomplished in her entire political LIFETIME for the American people……I will vote for the sorry bitch…

    Otherwise, don’t try to sale me a bunch of wolf tickets about how great she is and what she has accomplished….I am not ignorant or stupid..

    I have had it with the Clinton’s, the Bush’s, and all others who think the American presidency is nothing but a royal crown to be passed from one sorry ass’ed generation of losers to the next sorry ass’ed generation of losers.

    Such people are entitled to NOTHING but contempt from the people, because that’s exactly what they have earned….nothing but their contempt.

    As her mother prepared to launch her second campaign for the presidency, Chelsea Clinton’s staff was compiling an email chronicling the former first daughter’s growing public profile and influence within the family’s sprawling global philanthropy.

    Sent last month to family insiders from an address in her private domain——the email, which was the latest in a series of quarterly Chelsea updates, included links to more than a dozen articles and video clips detailing the charitable efforts of “Chelsea and her family” and “Chelsea and her mom.”

    It never mentioned her parents, Bill and Hillary Clinton, by name. One article compared Chelsea Clinton’s stage presence to her father’s while in a separate video interview she declared that her peripatetic 20s left her “more able to make a difference now.”

    A preview of the interview inside featured Chelsea talking about her husband and seven-month-old daughter (who she called “the most remarkable little bubbly, perfect, chunky monkey creature ever”)….. as well as the gender imbalance in American politics, which she called “a fundamental challenge” that “having our first woman president—whenever that is—will help resolve.”

    Read more:
    Apparent this is to help boost Chelsea’s image in the public eye and to give “Mommie dearest” a good reference as a great and wonderful Nana….. personally I don’t think it will work.

    “Then, on the weekend of Hillary Clinton’s announcement of her presidential campaign, her 35-year-old daughter showed up on the cover of ELLE magazine, in a $1,500 Gucci dress and $7,000 Cartier bracelet.

    Nice BLING for someone who doesn’t even have a job. Well maybe she has something to do with all those foreign Arab money donations toward her Mom’s “run for the roses”…..time will tell.”

    Now…since Chelsea has jumped into the cesspool political ring….. lets take a hard look at her claim to fame since she has made this leap of faith.

    From all present indications, it has been decided by this corrupt dynasty and political moochers that Chelsea will carry the Clinton political banner into the future…in search of that elusive political golden ring of the American presidency,……. again……

    Once a mooch, always a mooch…it runs in the family.

    Lord help us…….

    As you’ve likely heard by now, Killary Hillary Clinton has announced she is running for (dictator) president of the US.

    ‘Ol Hilldog is no stranger to scandal, controversy, mockery, and…well, I’ll just say it: hate.

    She just might be the most despised politician in the US today, but heck, you’ve gotta give her credit – she’s not going to let that stop her.

    With the announcement of Hillary’s POTUS run came the unveiling of a new logo:

    Here’s what some folks in her “fan club” had to say about her new logo…….

    Whoever charged Hillary to design that logo has one hell of a hustle.

    The following article was written by John Wayne’s daughter ……

    Someone finally researched President Obama’s Social Security number.

    Jean Paul Luwig or Barack Hussein Obama? SSN # 042-68-4425

    An intensive 6-year investigation has revealed the identity of the man whose Social Security Number (SSN) is being used by President Obama.

    Jean Paul Ludwig, who was born in France in 1890, immigrated to the United States in 1924, and was assigned SSN 042-68-4425 (President Obama’s current SSN) rec’d on, or about March 1977.

    Mr. Ludwig lived most of his adult life in Connecticut . Because of that, his SSN begins with the digits 042, which are among only a select few reserved for Connecticut residents.

    Barack H. Obama never lived or worked in that state ! Therefore, there is no reason on earth for his SSN to start with the digits 042. None whatsoever!

    Now comes the best part ! J. P. Ludwig spent the final months of his life in Hawaii, where he died.

    Conveniently, Obama ‘s grandmother, Madelyn Payne Dunham, worked part-time in the Probate Office in the Honolulu Hawaii Courthouse, and therefore had access to the SSNs of all deceased individuals.

    The Social Security Administration was never informed of Ludwig’s death, and because he never received Social Security benefits there were no benefits to stop and therefore, no questions were ever raised.

    The suspicion, of course, is that Dunham, knowing her grandson was not a U.S. Citizen, either because he was born in Kenya, or became a citizen of Indonesia upon his adoption by Lolo Soetoro, simply scoured the probate records, until she found someone, who died who was not receiving Social Security benefits, and selected Mr. Ludwig’s Connecticut SSN for her grandson Barry Obama.

    Just wait until the “Head Birther” himself, Donald Trump, gets past the birth certificate and onto the issue of Barry O’s use of a stolen SSN. You will see leftist heads exploding, because they will have no way of defending Obama.

    Although many Americans do not understand the meaning of the term ”natural born”, there are few who do not understand that if you are using someone else ‘s SSN it is a clear indication of fraud, and a federal offense.

    Let’s all get this information out to everybody on our mailing lists. If the voters of this great nation can succeed in bringing this lying, deceitful, cheating, corrupt, impostor to justice it will be the biggest and best news in decades for our country and the world

    If you can just say “oh well; ho hum” after reading this you get what you deserve .

    “In God We Trust.” Do we??? Is it true?

    Aissa Wayne
    Aissa, your a chip off the old block….I read and hear the words of your father in your article……thank you so very much !

    Your a real “natural-born citizen” American !

    Yep, RM, and if Jindal announces a run, we’ll have the trifecta of ineligible candidates.

    With 300some million people in the U.S., couldn’t we find a decent Natural Born Citizen somewhere?

  16. oldsoldier79


    Good afternoon to you my friend ! I hope things are well with you in Bean town !

    I agree. In over 300 million people…it sure looks like we could find at least ONE damn ‘natural-born citizen’ somewhere in this wilderness, doesn’t it ?

    I don’t know when and how our country got to the point it is at right now……

    Our Constitution has become an ancient relic that no politician pays any attention too, but they all sure give it a lot of hot air and lip service to get into office, but once in office, they completely ignore our ‘first law of the law’…….

    We will pay for this ignorance in the very near future, I fear….even moreso than we are paying right now with O’Bozo the clown in office.

    By the way….what did you think of Hillery’s new logo?……Having given that stupid looking logo some additional thought, the damn arrow could be pointing to the left, if you just turn the logo over, couldn’t it?

    Do you think she could be playing mind games with us so early in the her ‘run for the roses’?

  17. For those who may not know, we’re trying to start a 51st state in Northern California, the State of Jefferson. The state would begin north of Sacramento. It is mostly Conservative up here and small town and rural. So we are not fairly represented because the big population centers in south and central California dominate everything. The effort to form the State of Jefferson was interrupted by World War II but has been revived these last few years. Since today is Jefferson’s birthday, wish us luck!

    Reminded me of a joke I recently heard…it went like this:

    A man had two tickets to the Masters.

    As he sits down, another man comes along and asks if anyone is sitting in the seat next to him.

    “No”, he says. “It’s empty”.

    “Incredible!” said the man. “Who in their right mind would have a seat like this to one of the biggest sporting events of the whole year and not use it?”

    “Well, actually, the seat belongs to me. My wife would always come with me, but she passed away. This is the first Masters we haven’t been to together since we were married”.

    “Oh…I’m sorry. You couldn’t find someone else to join you? a friend, relative or neighbor to use the ticket?”

    The man shakes his head sadly.. “No. They’re all at the funeral”.

    The “Gore effect” has struck again, this time forcing thousands of Canadian eco-activists to march through the snow over the weekend, rallying against global warming on a cold Quebec City day.

    The Globe and Mail reports the “Act On Climate Change” march included “representatives from First Nations, environmental activists and political groups” who are trying to convince politicians to ban oil sands extraction and prevent pipelines from being built to bring that oil to market.

    Protesters dressed in red even marched in a formation that made a thermometer, meant to “send a message about climate change,” the Globe and Mail reported. If it were a real thermometer it would have shown temperatures at a chilly 44 degrees Fahrenheit by 4 p.m. — the high for the day.

    Most of the day, however, temperatures were lower with some wind chill and high humidity.

    Photos of the march show protesters and onlookers alike bundled up, walking over sleet and snow to protest global warming which scientists predicted over a decade ago would eventually mean the “end of snow.”

    I have traveled through N CA & have a friend in NC who is from there.
    He gave the same narrative on the conservative views there.

  23. (by Bob Unruh, WND) — Attorney Larry Klayman, fresh off a preliminary court ruling that the National Security Agency’s spying on Americans likely is unconstitutional, now has named President Obama and others in a racketeering complaint.

    Klayman, founder of Freedom Watch and a columnist for WND, alleges the president and others laundered U.S. taxpayer money that was spent on Hamas rockets fired against Israel.

    The civil lawsuit, filed in federal court in Washington falls under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act, or RICO, alleges criminal acts by Obama, Secretary of State John Kerry, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon.

    Seeking $1.5 billion in compensatory damages as well as punitive damages, it accuses the global figures of “laundering U.S. dollars” to Hamas, which is officially designated by the U.S. government as a Foreign Terrorist Organization.

    “This money has been foreseeably used to buy rockets and construct tunnels to attack Israel and terrorize and kill American and dual American-Israeli citizens who reside or are located in Israel,” Klayman said in a statement.

    “The nation and the world have increasingly come to see that Obama views himself primarily as a Muslim and acts accordingly in favoring Islamic interests over Judeo-Christian ones, and the complaint lays out Obama’s history in documented detail,” he said.

    Klayman said Obama’s actions “were calculated to harm the nation of Israel.”

    “His facilitating and ordering financial and other material aid to Hamas, along with his equally anti-Israel Secretaries of State Kerry and Clinton, and the U.N. Secretary General, is just the latest deadly chapter in what amounts to criminal activity which has logically resulted in harm and death to Jews and Christians and threatens the continued existence of Israel,” he said.

    “That is why he and the other defendants were sued under RICO and other relevant laws,” said Klayman.

    The White House media office declined to respond by telephone to a request from WND for comment, instructing a reporter to send an email. There was no immediately response to the email inquiry.

    The case, No. 14-1484, alleges the defendants conspired to send hundreds of millions of dollars to Hamas “under the false pretext that this financial support will be used for humanitarian purposes.”

    “However,” the complaint states, “as recently reported by Voice of America and the New York Times, the recent killing of the chief Hamas financial officer by the IDF confirmed that these U.S. dollars, only some of which [were] found in his bombed out car, [have] predictably fallen into the hands of Hamas’ terrorist wing, which controls and was elected by Gazans to govern over them.”

    Klayman’s recent case against the NSA challenged its program of spying on Americans. Two privacy-rights heavyweights, the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation, recently filed friend-of-the-court briefs in support of Klayman’s arguments.

    The case has been advanced to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit.

    I can recall John Kerry, Mr. Obama’s Secretary of State, from the days he testified before a congressional committee and falsely slandered his fellow soldiers as the spokesman for Veterans Against the Vietnam War in 1971 and labeled them as ‘baby killers’.

    I was appalled by his traitorous actions then, and my opinion, the scumbag of the man has not changed one bit since those days.

    I fought in that war, but I did not blame the lose of the war on the brave men who were conscripted to fight it, nor did I believe the charges Kerry leveled against them were true…after all, he only spent less than 3 months in Vietnam, joy riding up and down the Mekong Delta… how could he know anything about the soldiers who were fighting and died there?

    Kerry was a disgrace to the uniform he wore, he was a disgrace to the military service he represented , and he was a disgrace to his country…..

    He was all these things then , and he still is now.

    Hi RM,

    Everything’s just ducky here in the Town of Beans, thanks; the Red Sox home opener is today…I’m glad I’m across town! Hope all’s well ‘down south.’

    I think I know how we got to this point: Me, me, me, and to hell with anyone else. Self-absorbed people who couldn’t care less about tomorrow, just what they can get for themselves today. We have a self-centered society which operates only for the individual and not the good of the rest of the citizens. It never used to be that way, but this seems to be what we have now and you’re right….we are now paying the piper, and we’ll continue to do so.

    I have no idea what Killary’s doing but to me, that logo looks like the Cuban flag.

    Just sayin’….

    This video did not surface before the 2008 election and has only recently come to light.

    The FRANK in Obama’s book, ‘Dreams of my Father’ was a “true blue” COMMUNIST who “schooled” Obama in his communist brand of politics.

    This video now explains why O’bozo with hate in his eyes said in 2008 that he intended to “FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM” America….

    It’s now quite clear that he intends to turn us into a communist state.

    Ya…and she will get all of Obama’s “obot’s and idiots” vote (providing she can give them something, like a second cell phone, or a tank full of cheap gas)…looks like poor ole Joe Biden has been cut out of the loop….and Hillary’s bus will run over him before long.

    I wonder how old Joe feels now after carrying all that sewer water for O’bozo for eight long years !!!

    I just received an email from Marco Rubio asking for my support in his run for the presidency …..

    My reply was short, and to the point. I said;

    “When you can prove to me that you are a “natural-born citizen” as required by our Constitution, then I will stand with you…otherwise, don’t bother asking me again for my support.

    I will be damned if I support anyone who isn’t qualified under Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the Constitution of the United States of America.”

    One Usurper of the office of POTUS is one too many in my lifetime.

    I sent a similar email to Ted Cruz….he has stopped asking me for money. If Bobbie Jendal decides to run, I will send him an email much like the one I have just sent to Marco Rubio.

    (Apr. 13, 2015) — The letter linked below was sent by certified mail to the campaign office of Texas Sen. Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz on Monday morning.
    On March 23, Cruz declared himself a candidate for President of the United States on Twitter; on the same day, his campaign committee, Cruz for President, filed an official Statement of Candidacy with the Federal Elections Commission (FEC).
    Cruz was born on December 22, 1970 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada to Rafael Bienvenido Cruz and Eleanor Darragh Cruz. The elder Rafael had fought on the side of Fidel Castro in Cuba, later fleeing to the United States on a student visa. Eleanor was an American citizen.
    At some point while working in the Canadian oil business, Cruz’s father became a Canadian citizen. It is unknown whether or not Eleanor followed suit or became a dual U.S.-Canadian citizen.
    Cruz was born a Canadian citizen because in Canada, the citizenship of the parents is not a factor to that of the child. In 2013, Cruz claimed to have been unaware that he lived his entire life as a Canadian citizen, when The Dallas Morning News reported that he was born with dual citizenship. Cruz vowed to renounce his Canadian citizenship, completing the task in May of last year.
    Article II, Section 1, clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution requires the president to be a “natural born Citizen.” Historical texts indicate that the citizenship of the parents, or at least the father, was of greater importance than the birthplace of the child in determining citizenship. The presidency and vice-presidency are the only federal positions where the “natural born” requirement, suggested by founding father John Jay, is imposed.
    Rep. John Bingham, author of the 14th Amendment, is on record as having stated that a “natural born Citizen” is one who was born in the United States to two citizen parents.
