See the Three Legged Stool Test for “natural born Citizen” of the United States to Constitutional Standards as It Applies to Who Can be President and Commander-in-Chief of Our Military.

Marco Rubio was born to a Cuban Citizen father (minus one leg) and to a Cuban Citizen mother (minus the 2nd leg).

Marco Rubio was a basic “Citizen” at birth of the United States by being born in Miami FL. But he was also a Cuban “Citizen” at birth via inheriting Cuban citizenship via Jus Sanguinis laws recognized by the U.S. and Cuba from his Cuban foreign national alien parents.  He was born a dual-Citizen of Cuba and the U.S. with divided allegiances at birth. He was born with “foreign influence” on him at and by birth which the founders and framers did NOT want for future Commander in Chiefs of our military forces. He is NOT a “natural born Citizen” to constitutional standards.  Adjectives mean something!  The adjectives “natural born” before the word/noun “Citizen” mean something!

Marco Rubio is definitely NOT constitutionally eligible and is pushing the presidential eligibility envelope, meaning, and originalism understanding of that constitutional term far beyond what the founders and framers understood “natural born Citizen” to mean when they chose that term for who could be the President and Commander in Chief of our military once the founding generation was passed.

A “natural born Citizen” of the United States is a child born with Undivided and Sole Allegiance and Unity of Citizenship at birth to one and only one country — the USA, i.e., a child born in the USA of two (2) U.S. Citizens. The parents can be Citizens by Birth or they can be Citizens by Naturalization later in life after immigrating to the USA. But to create a “natural born Citizen” of the United States both parents must be Citizens at the time the child is born in the USA. See this legal reference book used by the founders and framers of our Constitution: Law of Nations or Principles of Natural Law, Vol.1 Chapter 19 Section 212, Emer de Vattel, 1758-1797. The overwhelming majority (probably 75%+) of citizens in the United States are natural born Citizens.

This clause was added for future presidents as a national security clause. It is from the group of natural born Citizens that our founders prescribed in the presidential eligibility clause in Clause 5, Section 1 of Article II of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose a President and Commander in Chief of our military as a strong check against foreign influence via birth allegiances on the person in that singular and most powerful office. One needs all three citizenship legs to be a natural born Citizen and have sole allegiance and claim on you at birth to one and only one country — the United States: 1. Born in the USA. 2. Father must be a U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). 3. Mother must be U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized). Like a three legged stool if you take away any of these three citizenship legs of the Article II constitutional intent and requirement to being a natural born Citizen, i.e., being born with unity of citizenship in and sole allegiance to the USA, the child is born with more than one country’s citizenship and claim of allegiance/citizenship on them at their birth and thus they are NOT a natural born Citizen of the United States.

In this test and analogy of a stool designed to stand on three legs and if it is missing a leg, it falls down, likewise the person’s claim to ‘natural born Citizenship’ fails if the person does not have all three citizenship legs required to be a natural born Citizen at the time of their birth. See the below Venn Diagram which logically and graphically shows how a natural born Citizen has the intersection and unity of all three Citizenship statuses at birth. Read this essay “ Of Trees and Plants” on basic logic which explains that being simply a “Citizen at Birth (CAB)” does not necessarily make oneself a “natural born Citizen (NBC) at Birth”. Natural born Citizens are overwhelmingly the largest subset of all American citizens. The location of birth being in the U.S. to a U.S. father and U.S. mother … all being U.S. Citizens at the time of birth is the only way one achieves natural born Citizenship status.

Natural born Citizenship is gained by the laws of nature not by any man-made law or statute or even a constitutional amendment granting that status. Natural born Citizens need no act of man for their Citizenship was created by nature and nature’s Creator. Natural born Citizens of the United States have sole allegiance to one and only one country at birth … the United States. No foreign power or country can claim their allegiance under U.S. law or the Law of Nations. Over 75% of American citizens fit that requirement, i.e., born in the USA of two U.S. Citizen (born or naturalized) parents. Natural born citizens are the 3 Leaf Clovers of the American citizens, Not the 4 Leaf Clovers. It is from those 75% of American citizens that our founders and framers directed us via Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution that we shall choose our President and Commander-in-Chief, not a dual-citizen son of a foreign national and British Subject father who was never even an immigrant to this country, and said child being born a British subject himself via his foreign national father, as is the case with Obama’s birth status.  Nor for the case of Ted Cruz who was born in Canada (and thus is a Canadian citizen by birth) to a foreign national Cuban father (and thus also a Cuban citizen by birth).  Cruz and Obama were born with multiple allegiances and citizenship at birth.  Nor for the case of Marco Rubio who while born in the USA was born to two foreign national (Cuban Citizens). None of these three are a “natural born Citizen” of the United States and none are constitutionally eligible to serve as President and Commander in Chief of our Military.

  1. Well, this is absolutely wrong, but by some logic I have never seen before.

    The natural born citizen condition must apply to any President of the US going back to the start–when the parents of all new US citizens were citizens of some other country (because the US only came into creation as a nation with the Articles of Confederation)

    [Editor’s comment: Have you ever read the Constitution – and the presidential eligibility clause therein – Article II Section 1 Clause 5? The presidential eligibility clause has a “grandfather” clause in it for the original Citizens exempting them from the “natural born Citizen” clause which only applied to people born after the adoption and ratification of the new Constitution. I suggest you read Article II Section 1 Clause 5. Here is the link to a research report on the constitutional eligibility, and whether under the grandfather clause or not, of all 44 presidents to date:

  2. Oh gosh, yes of course. It is the only place in the original document that relates to citizenship.

    And this was the point that I made to you. [Editor’s note: You made no such point.}

    How did they define citizenship? There was a generally understood consensus based on common law. The Articles of Confederation left the decision to the states and every state could do something different.

    By your definition, there would be, well, nothing at all to define a Federal citizen at the time of the ratification of the Constitution. There was a gap. How can you be a citizen when the state does not exist? The Constitution as the supreme law of the land never defined the issue and left the consensus as the unspoken rule. [Editor’s note: See Supreme Court cases starting with the Venus 1814 case which addressed who were Citizens of the United States: ]

    There is nothing in the document that defines citizenship as exclusively jus soli. If they wanted to define it as “born on the territory of the US and under the jurisdiction thereof,” there was nothing to stop them. Instead, they left it as “natural born” as a matter of common law. [Editor’s note: See: ]

    Now think. If John Adams went to France and had a child there (imagine that his wife went with him), would his son not be eligible for the office? Of course. That son would have been natural born even if he was not born in the embassy. {Editor’s note: See Vattel’s Principles of Natural Law Vol.1, Chapter 19, Section 217: ]

    Jus soli was never the issue. There was no stool, there was no problem. [Editor’s note: Yes there is a problem. Both political parties want to abrogate and dilute the meaning of “natural born Citizen” See the attempts made by both Dems and Repubs over the years at Rather than legally amend the constitution they with Obama and now Cruz and Rubio are choosing to ignore Article II Section 1 Clause 5. Obama got away with violating the Constitution and is now the defacto president. Now the door is being pushed further away from original understanding and intent by the Repub candidates Cruz and Rubio. Next the political parties will want to run child born to an Iranian father and American mother born in Russia. We cannot ignore the constitutional text and originalist understanding of what the words meant to the founders and framers when they chose those words. ]

    [Editor’s comment: I’m a constitutionalist. The presidential eligibility clause applies to all, even if I agree with the politics of a candidate, if they are not a “natural born Citizen” I will speak out against that. “natural born Citizen” is a Natural Law term. They understood it well as they used the preeminent legal treatise of that time on Natural Law, “Principles of Natural Law” by Emer de Vattel. A “natural born Citizen” is a person born in the country to parents who are both citizens of the country. It combines Jus Soli and Jus Sanguinis such that one and only one allegiance and citizenship is conferred on the child at birth. They did not want a person born with divided allegiance, dual-citizen, foreign influence on that person at birth to ever in the future get command of our military. And thus they chose the natural born Citizen term as a “strong check” against “foreign influence”. Read John Jay’s letter to George Washington. Universally accepted sole allegiance at birth and unity of citizenship at birth is the only status that the founders and framers wanted for the person who be the commander in chief of our military forces in the future. Thus Three Legged Stool analogy. I suggest you read this: ] The links to all this information are in my posts. But you are obviously not reading them and prefer to just disagree for the sake of disagreement or for political reasons, imo.
