  1. The people wanting to represent Rubio and Santorum are ingenuous and naive.

    Neither one is eligible as a candidate under US Constitution, The Executive Branch, Article II, Section 1, subparagraph (5)!

    Remember this when you decide ballots in your local elections.

    If these “delegates” are that obtuse, why would you elect them as local leaders?

    These familiar names should be put on the untrustworthy list.

    They would base all their decisions on emotions and not the law! Think about it.

  2. **The people wanting to represent Rubio and Santorum are ingenuous and naive. Neither one is eligible as a candidate under US Constitution**

    How so?

    Both Rubio and Satorum were born in the US.

    Are you really saying that they are not naturally born citizens?

    So much crazy on this blog…

  3. The issue has been litigated several times.

    Since Rubio and Santorum (and Cruz, while we are at it), were born to American citizens, they are eligible to run for, and serve as, President.

    This precedent goes back beyond the son of John Quincy Adams who was born in Europe and later, at least twice, was a candidate for President.

    This is why the bastard (Shakespeare’s word) son of a self-hating, over privileged hippie, who never legally renounced her citizenship before he was born, can be president of the United States, no matter where he was actually born, and whoever has father actually was.


  4. Not read up on your Constitution?

    And “experts” will tell you plenty of stuff which isn’t true at all.

    Nice touch, Dave; using the “crazy” word but pretending that wasn’t a character assault.

  5. It is absurd to think a child born to an American parent(s) in a foreign land is not an American citizen.

    Cindy you are incorrect on this issue and are falling victim to the crazy world of Presidential politics.

    You do not cease to be an American once you leave US shores, your citizenehip follows you whereever you go and that includes the issue born of American citizens.
