Natural Born Citizen

The question that the courts or Congress must decide is whether a British subject and citizen of Kenya, a person governed by the laws of Great Britain at the time of their birth should be considered a natural "born citizen" of the United States as required by Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the United States Constitution.

        "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."

The Founders wanted the President to be a Natural Born Citizen to ensure that the one person sitting at the top of the Executive branch had unquestionable, unwavering loyalty to the United States, first and foremost.

The natural born citizen clause was not an accident, nor was it an inane rule to be restrictive to immigrants, and it certainly isn't just a "political" issue. Loyalty to the US is the reason the natural born citizen clause was inserted into the Constitution.

People become confused because they don't understand the meaning of the relevant legal terms. This chart shows the elements for each of the constitutional terms that are used in the Constitution or in case law by the Supreme Court.

As you can clearly see in the matrix, Obama is a citizen of the United States, but he's not a "natural born citizen" of the United States, as claimed on his website, he is a "native born" citizen and, as such, is not eligible for POTUS, because "at birth," Obama was a citizen of the United States, a British subject and a citizen of Kenya.

So how did Obama become president?

The liberal, Democrat media refused to consider Obama was ineligible, declared him eligible and smeared anybody who questioned his ineligibility as a "Birther."

It was as simple as that.
