Presidential Office rules of naturalization
You know I just saw an article on Drudge that stated that the White House battle for the republican party will most likely be between Cruz and Perry. Here is my "thing" against Cruz, he was born in Canada and his dad is Cuban.
Since we allowed the current President to become just that, he dad was Kenyan remember and a socialist (explains a lot now doesn't it). I didn't think then and still think now that Obama wasn't eligible for the Office Of President either just as I do with Sen Ted Cruz.
What does the Constitution say or what was the mindset when the US Constitution was written in regards to being natural born citizen? Well the Constitution states the following has to be met to become President:
Article II, section 1, pa. 5: "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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."
What was our founding fathers' mindset when they made that statement in the Constitution? Remember back in those days, the monarchy married those from other countries, who would be more inclined to "hook" up their country the best way they know how no matter if it hurt the citizens or whatever in the country they were ruling over. This is just my opinion on why our Founding Fathers made sure that "natural born" was added into the guidelines of becoming President. Do I think that Obama meets these requirements? In a way yes, and in a way no. I believe that both parents should be citizens, therefore, anyone who gets put into that prestigious office has no ties to any other country, and this is why I feel that Obama doesn't meet the requirements. His day is Kenyan, and I wonder where his allegiances lie? This is just my opinion.
