"It's a time for truth, a time to rise to the challenge just as Americans have always done," Cruz says over clips of American landscapes and people. "It's going to take a new generation of courageous conservatives to help make America great again. And I'm ready to stand with you to lead the fight."

He sucks too.


How does one buy an island? Maybe after I buy my own, I can find a niche selling other people islands. Or sell other people islands to earn money for my own...


And isn't he a fricking Canadian or something?

Seems like the precedent has been set for electing foreigners, so that should not be a problem.

 

Kelly, maybe you should consult a Realtor?

 

Personally,

I don't a Cruz campaign gaining any traction, but he is in.....

Not a fan of him, personally.  I get the same phony vibe I get from many of the others.

Personally, I like many of his ideas and the fact that he stands firm in what he believes.

I like the fact that he is unafraid to challenge the establishment.

On the birth issue, two wrongs don't make a right.

If he was born in Canada, he is disqualified.

Well, we know Cruz is familiar with "Green Eggs and Ham".  I guess he has now read "If I Ran the Zoo", so, you know, he feels he's qualified now.

you do not have to be born in the U.S. To be president. You have to be born a citizen. (One parent needs to be a citizen ). John McCain was not born in the U.S. either.

Natural-born citizen

Who is a natural-born citizen? Who, in other words, is a citizen at birth, such that that person can be a President someday?

The 14th Amendment defines citizenship this way: "All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside." But even this does not get specific enough. As usual, the Constitution provides the framework for the law, but it is the law that fills in the gaps. The Constitution authorizes the Congress to do create clarifying legislation in Section 5 of the 14th Amendment; the Constitution, in Article 1, Section 8, Clause 4, also allows the Congress to create law regarding naturalization, which includes citizenship.

Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:"

  • Anyone born inside the United States *
  • Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person's status as a citizen of the tribe
  • Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S.
  • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. national
  • Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. for at least one year
  • Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
  • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
  • A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
