@BretBaier  Hello Bret:  You need to study up on set theory and basic logic. Not all “Citizens at birth” are “natural born Citizens at birth”.  Trees are plants but not all plants are trees:

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
