Given Rick Santorum’s Announcement Today 27 May 2015 Declaring His Candidacy for President, Below is a Blast From the Past From Oct 2012.
Also a Question: Has Rick Santorum Renounced His Italian Citizenship Gained at His Birth From His Italian Citizen Father Similar to Ted Cruz Renouncing His Canadian Citizenship Gained at His Birth Via His Cuban/Canadian Father? If They Gained Basic U.S. Citizenship Via Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mother’s Did They Not Also Gain Basic Citizenship in a Foreign Country via Their Father’s Foreign National Citizenship? Ted Cruz Had at Birth Another Citizenship Issue Since He Had a ‘Jus Soli’ Nationality Law Issue Since He Was Born in Canada. But Both Cruz and Santorum Gained Dual Citizenship and Dual Allegiance at Birth Via ‘Jus Sanquinis’ Nationality Laws From Their Respective Fathers Who Had Un-renounced Foreign Citizenship and Their Respective U.S. Citizen Mothers.
From Oct 2012: 100% Proof Rick Santorum was born a Dual-Citizen with Dual-Allegiances (Italy and USA) and thus is Not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, i.e., a person who was born with ‘Unity of Citizenship and Sole Allegiance‘ to the USA at birth. Rick’s father who was born in Italy and was an immigrant from Italy took the oath of allegiance to the USA and formally perfected his naturalized U.S. Citizenship and renounced his Italian Citizenship in 1961 which was 3 yrs after Rick was born in 1958. Prior to 1961 Aldo Santorum was still an Italian citizen which Aldo still had not yet renounced. Thus when Rick was born he inherited Italian citizenship from his Italian born and still as of 1958 Italian citizen father Aldo.

Flashback to the primary election in the spring of 2012 and Rick Santorum’s reluctance to come clean on questions about if and when his Italian born father renounced his Italian citizenship and took his citizenship oath of allegiance to the USA: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/03/06/rick-santorum-still-refusing-to-provide-copies-of-naturalization-papers-proving-his-father-was-a-u-s-citizen-when-rick-was-born/

With multiple candidates for President lacking constitutional eligibility “natural born Citizen” status, we thus have another reason the Republican Party has been trying to abrogate and ignore the “natural born Citizen” clause instead of trying to legally amend it out of the U.S. Constitution which would be very difficult to do once the People learned and fully understood the critical national security implications of removing that clause as to who can be the President and Commander in Chief of our military. Obama is an obvious example of the national security implications of having a person who is not a natural born Citizen being seated in the Oval Office. It is obvious the the politicians in both political parties are perfectly willing to put their personal political ambition and party politics above the U.S. Constitution and then ignore We the People when we ask them what the heck is going on. The Republican Party has been in cahoots with the Democrat Party to ignore the U.S. Constitution and thus we got the debacle and constitutional crisis we are in now with an illegal, unconstitutional person Obama residing in the White House. When people ask why the Republican Party is silent on the lack of natural born Citizenship of Obama answer to them — Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, Bobby Jindal, [and Ted Cruz] … and likely other (possibly Nikki Haley) upcoming Republican stars who are NOT natural born Citizens of the United States to constitutional standards … and whom the RNC wants to run for President of VP anyway.
Rick Santorum, Marco Rubio, Bobby Jindal [and Ted Cruz] are clearly not constitutionally eligible to serve as President or VP and yet the Republican Party puts them forward and protects them. And people ask why the Republican Party and their supporters in the major media don’t want to discuss Obama’s lack of natural born Citizenship. This is why. Neither political party wants Article II Section 1 Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution enforced. Both parties are betraying the U.S. Constitution for their own political goals and power. Party politics trumps the Constitution in their eyes. George Washington warned us about this. And his warning has come to pass.
Also, read more about Obama’s ID crimes and his constitutional ineligibility here: http://www.scribd.com/protectourliberty/collections/ When will we return to the rule of law and enforce our identity theft protection laws and U.S. Constitution in regards to Obama the Identity-Fraud-in-Chief residing in the White House?
This is NOT about politics or anything else but the U.S. Constitution, the fundamental law of our land. If we lose the full force and effect of every word in it, we lose our constitutional republic and our rule of law. Amend it via a properly brought and approved constitutional amendment or respect and obey it. Politicians and the political parties should not try to dissemble the true original intent, understood meaning, and purpose of the words chosen and used therein when the founders and framers wrote them in the founding era just to achieve some modern day political party agenda and goal.

P.S. Also read this essay regarding the constitutional term in the presidential eligibility clause “natural born Citizen” and basic logic, i.e., trees are plants but not all plants are trees. Natural born Citizens are a subset of “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” but not all “born Citizens (citizens at birth)” are “natural born Citizens”: https://cdrkerchner.wordpress.com/2012/06/20/of-natural-born-citizens-and-citizens-at-birth-and-basic-logic-trees-are-plants-but-not-all-plants-are-trees-natural-born-citizens-nbc-are-citizens-at-birth-cab-but-not-all-cab/ … AND … http://www.art2superpac.com/issues.html Also watch this video by the renowned constitutional scholar Dr. Herb Titus — Part I: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esiZZ-1R7e8 and Part II: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xoaZ8WextxQ

“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the veil of indifference to their necessity to continually be “on watch” and at times to stand up and protect our U.S. Constitution from usurpation by progressive/marxist/radical politicians operating in relative secrecy protected by an enabling press and major media … thinking and saying it’s the job of someone else … and living their lives in general apathy about what the national government is up to, they will allow the adoption of every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation without knowing how it happened.” CDR Kerchner (Ret)’s alert and paraphrasing earlier warnings about the socialist/progressives’ long-term stealth agenda to transform the USA from a constitutional republic into a top-down, central controlled, fascist-socialist form of government.
