So now we find that Trump did not have two American citizens as parents. Neither did Ted Cruz. And that makes the only difference to be where each was born. Trump, I assume, was born within the boundaries of the continental United States. Cruz was born in Canada.
By virtue of the various statutes spinning off the U. S. Constitution, both are fully qualified to be President.
As I understand it, the requirement is that the candidate be a "natural-born citizen of the U. S." U. S. law has always interpreted that as being born within the United States, its territories or possessions, or, being the child of a U. S. citizen but born outside those limits. (But I have always wondered how all those president's born before 1789 managed to avoid that part of the Constitution. I assume that it was understood at the time that as they were born within what became the US that that would suffice. Otherwise the first "natural-born citizen of the US" would not have been eligible for election until 1824.)
And, anyway, what difference does it make? If either of them were eligible to become U. S. Senators and sit and make laws for the US, that is good enough for me.
Now, Ted Cruz is not my first choice for the Republican candidate. Neither is Trump. And I have also eliminated Santorum, Paul, Huckabee, Bush, Carson and Fiorina. Still standing for the top slot are Kasich, Rubio, and that guy from New Jersey. However, Cruz and Fiorino stand high for the second slot on the ticket, as do Kasich, Rubio and that guy from New Jersey, plus Ben Carson.
I have my own reasons for inclusion and exclusion, but one of the primary ones for exclusion is a constant attacking of other candidates, whether a Republican or Democrat or Socialist candidate. And two of the primary ones for inclusion are being a social moderate and a strong fiscal conservative.
I also expect a candidate to be forthcoming as far as his/her intentions regarding tax issues, spending, the military, America's place in world politics, etc. But I do not really expect any of them to have opinions that coincide with mine, for I am somewhat radical in my beliefs, and a real radical cannot be elected if they are in the Republican party.
And I will not vote for a socialist or a liar.
