Is Ted Cruz eligible for U.S presidency?Posted by: discomfiting
"[N]o person except a natural born citizen, or a Citizen at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President.” He was born in Calgary, Canada.
Yes he can, screw the constitution
No he can't, no constitutional cherry picking
What is a natural born citizen? The constitution doesn't exactly say. Someone is a "natural born" citizen if they have citizenship at birth and don’t have to go through a naturalization process to become a citizen. If that’s the definition, then Cruz is a natural born citizen by being born to an American mother and having her citizenship at birth. (This same logic would apply to Obama, even if he were born in another country, which he wasn’t.)
No because he was born in Kenya and he is a Muslim
He's not a natural citizen because even with the logic due to his mother being American, that would be he's a natural born citizen of Cuba too. He wasn't born in America, he is not a U.S citizen; ring wing supporters screamed with all their pseudo-patriotism of claiming Obama wasn't born in the U.S (even though he was) & now all the sudden, it doesn't matter who was born where. Personally I think it's stupid to need a natural born citizen to be your leader but, it's unconstitutional.
