  • Perry should have his flat tax plan out. It is dozens of pages long. It will be 20% with some exemptions. It has 70 foot notes to back it up.

      I don’t particularly dislike Perry, but….really? I mean, is this a heartfelt platform or a “me too”?
      I will possibly support him, but I need more from him than dusting off Steve Forbe’s plan and hoping it will neutralize his competition. It leaves me wanting as to whether or not he is even serious about attacking this issue.

      • The Plan is real. Dozen of pages and lots of detaisl including 70 footnotes. Cain’s plan is just a primer for the Fair Tax which will only lead to a VAT. No thanks.

        I don’t think the 9-9-9 or the 20-20 plans have a snowball’s chance of getting passed. We have a SPENDING problem and nobody is talking about that. The only voters who are watching politics now are those who can’t find anything else on tv. That’s why there’s all this buzz and bumper sticker gimikry now. It’s good show biz. The serious voters will start paying attention about 2 months before the election.

          They were not American citizens when he was Born. Rubio DOES NOT QUALIFY.

          • Anonymous

            Try reading the Constitution. As a civic exercise, find the relevant section. He is eligible, not that I would support him at this time since he has insufficient experience, which he acknowledges, unlike obama…an inexperienced, unproven leader who no record of success and a beta male with strong marxist leanings.

              He is not eligible. He does not qualify as “Natural Born”. His parents were not American Citizens when he was born. Just because he was born in the USA does not make him eligible to be President or VP. that is not what Natural Born means. That is why everyone is having a fit about Obama. His father was not an American Citizen. So he is not Natural Born. The Relevant Section of the US Constitution is :

              Article 2 Section 1 – 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.

              Notice how It doesn’t say any person born in the USA can be President.

              IF that was the case – and I know he is dead, but by that reasoning Osama Bin Laden could have come to the USA – got a girl Pregnant – gone back to his country, and that baby could be the President of the USA. Sorry that Baby is NOT NATURAL BORN.

              The Reason the Founders put in a Citizen at the time of the Writing of this Constitution was because Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and the rest were all born of Foreign Parents, who were not US citizens. That is why Andrew Jackson qualified for President, because he was born 20 years before the Constitution was adopted.

              Natural Born –

              The Founders when using the Term Natural Born for the Office of the President used Vettel’s Law of Nations. It is the Clear definition of what it means to be “Natural Born” and Qualified to be President of the USA.

              What is Natural Born – The citizens are the members of the civil society; bound to this society by certain duties, and subject to its authority, they equally participate in its advantages. The natives, or natural-…born citizens, are those born in the country, of parents who are citizens. As the society cannot exist and perpetuate itself otherwise than by the children of the citizens, those children naturally follow the condition of their fathers, and succeed to all their rights. The society is supposed to desire this, in consequence of what it owes to its own preservation; and it is presumed, as matter of course, that each citizen, on entering into society, reserves to his children the right of becoming members of it. The country of the fathers is therefore that of the children; and these become true citizens merely by their tacit consent. We shall soon see whether, on their coming to the years of discretion, they may renounce their right, and what they owe to the society in which they were born. I say, that, in order to be of the country, it is necessary that a person be born of a father who is a citizen; for, if he is born there of a foreigner, it will be only the place of his birth, and not his country.

              BORN IN THE COUNTRY AND THE PARENTS (plural, meaning both) ARE CITIZENS.

              Just because they got away with it – With Obama – doesn’t mean we commit the Same wrong. Two wrongs never make a right, and our Job is to protect that Document.

                I appreciate your time and effort. However, I don’t know if I agree with your analogy re: bin laden since he was not subject to the laws of our country under your hypothetical. that being said, this issue needs to be addressed in Congress because a plain reading of that relevant article in the Constitution says otherwise. The referenced definitions are not included in the Constitution nor incorporated in the document. I admit there has to be concrete and unequivocal clarification. As far as distinguishing obama and rubio, clearly rubio has a much stronger claim, but the most evident is that obama’s father obviously was not a US citizen and in fact did not have legal status as he visa had exipred by the time he got together with the woman. rubio’s parent were lawful permanent residents. they were clearly subject to the laws of the US. The only case I am aware of is the Chinese Exclusion Case rendered by the Supreme Court which discussed US citizenship to a child born of foreign parent.

                Where is the outrage and opposition to obama? let’s not make the same mistake is inadequate as rubio has a legitimate claim.

                Our document is continually being shredded by progressives and big government repubs. What the current administration is doing to our document is unbelievable.

                • Anonymous

                  There is outrage about Obama. His father was not a US citizen, all the paper work that they have on him, plus the Social Security number, the Birth Certificate. Every thing that I have read about the case. There is clear outrage. But that doesn’t mean we as Conservatives do the same thing.

                  Every Definition for what the founders meant when they Wrote the Constitution is not in the Constitution. But their writings are clear, the Federalist Papers are clear. Imagine how long the Constitution would be if every definition was in the Constitution. The founders used Vettels law for Natural Born.

                  My Analogy is clear when it comes to Rubio. He states himself that they did try to go back to Cuba. They weren’t Beholden to the USA. They wanted to go back to Cuba. The Analogy of Bin Laden Works. Because what everyone is saying is as long as your born here, doesn’t matter what your parents do or where they came from.

                  Does Obama act like someone beholden to the USA? NO. He despises and hates this country. He is destroying this country.

                  Another Analogy, Kate and Will are expecting a baby, she has it early on a trip in the USA, is her baby a US citizen and therefore that baby disqualifies from being the Next King of England? NO. The 14th Amendment was never meant for every baby born here to be a Citizen. IT was written after the Dred Scott case. It was meant for Slaves. That they are citizens, and that no one could take that away from them.

                  the 14th Amendment was not meant for Anchor Babies, the Natural Born clause was not meant for someone without Two Parents being Citizens of the USA.

                  If the parents of the Children are not beholden to the country they are born in what happens? AS evidence by the illegals that are coming into this country and staying, they are not speaking the language, they are not assimilating, they are not learning history, our flag, our National anthem, and our pledge are constantly being told that they are offensive. The Parents of the children are not teaching their children how special the USA is. The Parents and Teachers in a lot of schools are teaching about how we stole this land, and just recently you had kids standing and saluting and being forced to pledge allegiance to Mexico and sing their national Anthem.

                  Now I am not comparing Marco Rubio to any of this, just that he doesn’t qualify as Natural Born. Marco likes to say he is Honorable, and that he loves this Country, then he needs to be Honorable and admit like Bobby Jindall did that he is not qualified.

                  Here is a whole list of cases, definitions, that all have to do with the Natural Born Clause according to the Constitution of the USA.

                  When you read these you see that the Founders from the Federalist Writings, to the Declaration of Independence, Clearly meant that Natural Born is that Two parents must Be Citizens of that country. It is stated over and over again.

                  the term I reference is “subject to.” It is clear that people who are lawful permanent residents (rubio’s parents) are “subject to” the laws of the US. In fact, even if they were paroled in, they are still under color of law. there is no requirement whether or not he person may or may not have wanted to go back to their home country to determine whether the person is subject to the laws of the US for purposes of conferring US citizenship to children.

                  With all due respect, the analogy does not work. The big distinction, which I agree with is that these anchor babies, children born of people on visitors’ visas or born of illegal have no business getting US citizenship under an analysis of the 14th amendment. this analysis would have barred obama from qualifying. we have lost our way if we can’t remedy this problem.

                  It remains to be seen whether or if rubio even runs but the issues are there for Congress to decide.

                  While I appreciate your links, they discuss some issues but they are not controlling. Some of the text can be interpreted different ways.

    Yes he does have aspirations and if he is on the Ticket for the Presidency of the USA, I with many others WILL NOT VOTE FOR THAT TICKET. He is not Natural Born under the Constitution of the USA. NEITHER of Rubio’s Parents were Citizens at the Time of his birth. So although Marco is a citizen of the USA, he is not Natural born, his children can be President of the USA, but Marco cannot be.

    I am not a Birther. But I do know what has been done about Obama, and he is not natural born either according to the Constitution because his dad was not a US Citizen.

    There have been 7 Presidents born of Foreign Parents. Chester Arthur is the one with serious questions about his parents. He burned all his paperwork except the family bible, and they are really digging into his presidency about the Natural Born clause. If the alternative media would have been around back then, I wonder what would have been done with Chester Arthur.

    I am an Ultra Constitutional Conservative. My job as a Citizen of this great country is to defend and protect that Glorious document and this country that we have been so entrusted with. Just because Obama and the Liberals did something doesn’t mean that we also commit a wrong. Two wrongs never make a right and I won’t be apart of this.

    Marco Rubio knows he does not qualify. Jindall knows he does not qualify. Jindall admitted it. Rubio can serve in other aspects of the Government. He can be an ambassador, a senator, a Governor, sit on the cabinet. But he cannot be President of the USA or VP. if you vote for a ticket with Rubio on it, Your voting for the Destruction of this nation, and your a part of it.

        Here are some interesting facts about the 7 Presidents that had Foreign born Parents. I hope all read and enjoy.

        Andrew Jackson was Born 20 years before the Constitution of the United States was Written. He was born in 1767 and the Constitution was written in 1787 and then ratified in 1788. Article 2 section 1 clearly states that all are citizens at the time of this document being written. That is what qualifies Andrew Jackson for being President of the United States. Now there were 6 other Presidents with Foreign Born Parents – Lets look at them – and why did they qualify?

        Andrew Jackson born in 1767 to two foreign born parents but qualified at the time the Constitution was adopted.

        James Buchanan – 14th President of the United States – He was born on April 23, 1791 in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. He just missed out on the grandfather clause as the Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787, by the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. His mother Elizabeth Speer was born in Pennsylvani. His father James Buchanan emigrated to the United States from Ireland in 1783. It was an interesting year for the United States as the Treaty of 1783 was signed between the US and Great Britain. Colonists chose to be United States citizens and by virtue of the Treaty, Great Britain recognized those former subjects as United States citizens.

        Before the Constitution, United States citizenship was conferred on citizens by the States. When the Constitution was ratified, each citizen of a state became a citizen of the United States. No formal naturalization was needed.

        On June 21, 1788 the Constitution was ratified. The Buchanan’s were citizens of Pennsylvania and therefore James Sr. was a citizen of the United States. When James Jr. was born in Pennsylvania he was therefore a natural born citizen, born on United States soil to two US citizen parents.

          ANDREW JOHNSON

          Johnson, our 17th President, was born in Raleigh, North Carolina on December 29, 1808.

          Jacob Johnson was born 1778. Some sources indicate that he was born in Newcastle, England and sailed to America around 1795, but other sources indicate that he was born in Raleigh, North Carolina, and that it was his grandfather (and possible namesake) who sailed to North America from England. Historian Rev. Nash A. Odom writes that “In the year 1760, Peter Johnson, migrated from Kintyre, Scotland to North Carolina with his large family and settled in Cumberland County. The preaching instinct broke out again and a number of the Johnsons became ministers. One was the father of Jacob Johnson, who moved to Raleigh, North Carolina and was the father of President Andrew Johnson.” Author Billy Kennedy writes that Jacob’s father, named Andrew, a Presbyterian, came to North Carolina about 1750 from Mounthill, Ireland.

          The weight of authority is that Jacob was born in the US. But even if the other sources were correct, he would have been in the US for 13 years before Andrew was born. The Naturalization act of 1795 called for a five year residence before Naturalization. The Act was modified in 1798 to a 14 year requirement, but then the Naturalization act of 1802 it was put back to five years.

          Jacob Johnson also served as a militia Captain of Muster Division 20 and was the city constable. I can find no allegations that Jacob wasn’t a citizen when Andrew was born. (Jacob Johnson died from complications caused by his heroic saving of a friend’s life.)

          Andrew Johnson’s mother was born in North Carolina in 1782.

          So, Andrew Johnson – born in North Carolina to two US citizen parents, hence – natural born citizen.

          WOODROW WILSON

          Born December 28, 1856 – the 28th President, born in Staunton, Virginia.

          Wilson’s mother was from Carlisle, England. His father was a US citizen from Ohio. Wilson’s mother gained US citizenship when she married his father according to a congressional Act of February 1855, which stated,

          “any woman who might lawfully be naturalized under existing laws, married, or shall be married to a citizen of the United States, shall be deemed and taken to be a citizen.” [Act of February 10, 1855, 10 Stat. 604, section 2]

          This was called derivative citizenship. This act was enacted in 1855. Woodrow Wilson was born in December 1856. He was born in the US, both parents were US citizens – natural born citizen.

          HERBERT HOOVER

          Hoover was born in Iowa, 1874. He was the 31st President. His father Jesse was from Ohio, a US citizen. His mother Hulda Minthorn was from Ontario, Canada. They were married in 1870. According to the 1855 act, which was in effect until 1922, Hoover’s mother became a US citizen automatically when she married Jesse.

          So, Hoover was born in the US, both parents were citizens – natural born citizen.

            CHESTER ARTHUR … There are many questions that have gone unanswered about Arthur, some are saying he lied about his age, he had to show his birth Certificate to prove he was born in Vermont, and some say he lied about his parents and being a duel citizen. Many things have come to light about Arthur – since 2008.

            Chester Arthur (1881-1885), was born on October 5, 1829 in Fairfield, Vermont. His father, William Arthur, when eighteen years of age, emigrated from Co. Antrim, Ireland. His father did not become a naturalized U.S. citizen until 14 years after Chester Arthur’s birth. Chester Arthur’s mother, Malvina Stone, was born April 29, 1802 in Berkshire, Franklin, Vermont. Hence, Chester Arthur was born to a father who was not a U.S. citizen at the time of his birth. Because the citizenship of the wife merged into that of the husband, this made Arthur born to an alien mother and father. He was therefore born with dual citizenship of the United Kingdom and the United States. It is believed that Chester Arthur lied numerous times about his past to hide the fact that when he was born his father was not a U.S. citizen and to therefore obfuscate his ineligibility to hold Vice-Presidential and Presidential office. What is most telling is that Chester Arthur also burned all personal records just prior to his death. Chester Arthur was challenged during his Vice Presidential bid on the ground that he was not born in the United States. No one challenged Chester Arthur on the ground that even if he were born in the United States, he was still not an Article II “natural born Citizen” because of his father’s foreign citizenship at the time of his birth which also made his mother an alien. Hence, the Chester Arthur example is not and cannot be treated as any precedent since the nation was not aware of the truth about his father’s and mother’s non-U.S. citizenship status at the time of his birth.

    Rubio is a Great thinker but is not Natural Born and is not eligible for president of the USA , and to further this debate we must re hash the fraud that took place in 2008 !!!

    I want the Democratic and Republican Parties Investigated for a Conspiracy to cover-up what looks like a real mess in the 2008 election year .

    Why the RINO cover-up of Obama’s ineligibility , well I think has to do with this Law Professor review that came out right after McCain got the Nominee and clearance from the Senate and the Donations were pouring into McCain Campaign headquarters and the RINO republican machine did not want to open this can of worms to debate , and the democrats were oh so happy to point this Law Professors review out as a issue that they would open up to the public if the Republicans and McCain went after Obama’s ineligibility issue , so they agreed to leave Obama eligibility alone , and thats why still today they do not want this to get out that the possibility that the US had two ineligible Candidates would have made the whole process a Joke as I think Democrats were ready to challenge McCains . This is how I think the Democrats were able to bribe the Republicans to stay shut up in 2008 and the last 2 1/2 years about Obama needing to prove eligibility to be Natural Born , its been a Bribe and a Cover-up from when this Law review was done in July of 2008 and If you remember McCain Lost his Power and force to challenge Obama about this time in the 2008 campaign .
    This link is the 2008 claim of McCain’s ineligibility under Federal Constitutional law ;

    http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3/papers.cfm?abstract-id=1157621

    This is why Obama is going to take up the Immigration Reform debate NOW and drive this all the way to 2012 because He needs Amnesty as Bad as the Illegals that will VOTE for him do !!!!
    what I see going on is a Democratic party Defining this Natural Born Claim and they are doing under the guise of a 1608 ENGLAND COMMON Law instead of Constitutional law , through the CALVIN RULE , which basically says that you only need ONE parent a Citizen at the time of BIRTH to be Natural Born in this 1868 14th Amendment ruling , and this article came out right When Donald trump was starting to debate Obamas eligibility , like a sort of reminder , and if you remember the RINO Republicans started shooting at Trump to leave the Obama birth certificate alone , and that seems funny don’t you think ?
