Natural Born Citizen = 3 Leaf Clover Citizens <> 4 Leaf Type | by CDR Kerchner (Ret)
Regarding the term “natural born Citizen” (NBC), it is not a very limited club and category of citizenship. In fact it is exactly the opposite. NBCs are the most common, garden variety, most populous group of citizenship that exists in a typical nation and is typically by far the most populous group or class of citizenship in virtually all nations. Thus, we have a very, very large pool of NBCs from which to choose a President and CINC. We don’t need to search the ranks of those with foreign allegiances and foreign influence and foreign powers claims on them by birth such as Obama has. Putative President Obama was born a British Subject via his British Subject foreign national father and is thus a dual Citizen.
The pool of NBCs is vast in our nation. An analogy: “Natural Born Citizens are the 3 Leaf Clover Citizens not the 4 Leaf Clover type. They are not rare but the most frequently occurring type in a nation.” Those that are born in the country to two citizens of a country, i.e., the “natural born citizens” are the largest group of citizens in this country. Idea: Go buy a three leaf clover pin and pin it on your lapel. And when people ask you why you are wearing a three leaf clover, tell them it signifies that you are a “natural born citizen” and Obama is not. Then explain why. Because his father was not a U.S. citizen when Obama was born and never was. In fact, Obama’s father was not even an immigrant to the USA and was never even a permanent resident here. Obama’s father was a a FOREIGN NATIONAL, a foreigner simply here for a couple years on a student or diplomatic visa. And then he went home to Kenya. He was a foreigner in the truest sense of the meaning of that terminology. And Obama inherited British Citizenship from his father. This was the type of foreign influence that John Jay wrote about and worried about in his letter to General George Washington about foreign influence on the person who would be President and what type of citizenship is required to serve as the President and Commander in Chief of our Army for our new nation in the future. And General Washington agreed that it should only be a “natural born citizen” of the new nation, for this singular most powerful office in our new nation, with the grandfather clause put into Article II of that requirement to exempt the founding generation there at the time the Constitution was adopted since of course the founders and framers were not natural born Citizens. A natural born Citizen is a person born in the country to two parents who are Citizens (born or naturalized). Obama’s father was not a U.S. Citizen. He was not even an immigrant to this country. Thus, Obama is not eligible under the U.S. Constitution to be President.
For any other political office in our country below the federal offices of Pres and VP, ordinary citizenship is fine. But for the Pres and VP, you must be an Natural Born Citizenship and have 100% sole allegiance and unity of citizenship to this nation by birth in the country to two citizens of the country, and allegiance to no other, nor with any claim on you by another country or power, solely by the events of nature at your birth, not any retro-active after the fact citizenship granted by the laws of man.

But under the name of liberalism they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.” Ronald Reagan alerting us to Norman Thomas’ and the socialist/progressives’ long-term stealth agenda to transform the USA from a constitutional republic into a top-down, central controlled, socialist form of government
