  •  i thought there was still some question (0+ / 0-)

    about what "natural born" citizen means

    Politics is like driving. To go backward put it in R. To go forward put it in D.

    •  It means you are an American citizen at birth. (0+ / 0-)

      There is some debate on how far that can go, such in the case of McCain who was not a citizen at the moment of birth but was later made one.  

      Cruz was a citizen instantly, as soon as he drew breath.  He is eligible.

      It doesn't matter anyway, as he will never ever get the nomination.  The elite GOP would never allow it.

      •  are you a lawyer in this field? (0+ / 0-)

        AFAIK they have been arguing about this for quite a while and there is a lot of murkiness on the issue

          I received a law degree and decided the courtroom was not for me.  I simultaneously completed an education degree and went into teaching.  At first, elementary and secondary and then moved on to the college campus.

          I teach government, law practicum, and English at times.
