Native-Born Citizen Yes, But Sen. Marco Rubio Is Not A Natural-Born Citizen

A natural born Citizen of the United States is one born in the United States to two U.S. Citizens who were Citizens of the United States either by birth or naturalization at the time of the birth of the child. A natural born Citizen of the United States is a child born with sole allegiance to the United States, a person born without Citizenship in any other country other than the USA at the time of their birth. A natural born Citizen has no foreign influence or claim on them by another country at the time of their birth under U.S. law and the Law of Nations. That is why the founders and framers chose the legal term of art “natural born Citizen” for the eligibility clause for the singular most power office in our form of government, the President and Commander in Chief of our military. They did not wish command of our military forces to ever devolve to a person born with dual allegiances.

  1. That didn't stop Obama from being sworn in as President, so until such time as the Supreme Court takes up the matter and says otherwise, Rubio should be good to go.  The stupidity of this that under the "Obama rules" for Natural Born Citizen -- Osama bin Laden could have fathered an American born child that could grow up to be President!  Now how many Americans would think that would be right????
