'Member that whole Obama debacle about his birth certificate? Like how it's STILL going on. How TO THIS DAY there are still people insisting that his birth certificate is a fake and that he wasn't born in the US and that he shouldn't have been able to be president and have literally dedicated their lives to proving it?
Yea, so that brings us to today. Presidential candidate Ted Cruz? Yea, not a US born citizen. In fact, he's even given up the information that he was born in Calgary, Canada.
Can't run for president then right? Well, not exactly. Come to find out, being born in the US is one of those gray areas open to interpretation. Which is liiiiike interesting to say the least. Just like the whole, "Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness" where "all men are created equal," when what it really meant was that all white landowning men were created equal. Same thing right? Hmm..

Here's the deal, in the constitution it states, all candidates must be "natural born citizens." What the fuuuuck does that mean exactly? I vividly remember being taught in liiiike 8th grade that you had to be born in the US to be president and I thought that was what the whole Obama debate was about. APPARENTLY it's up for debate though because his mother was American-born.
The case will be heard today about whether or not his placement on the 2016 presidential ticket is valid or not.

Yes you don’t personally have to be a citizen born within the UnitedStates as long as your mother is a citizen then your offspring is a natural born citizen. I know this because for some odd reason when i was in like the 7th grade i was that one girl who asked a grip ton of what if questions and that was one. For some reason i thought one day I’d be pregnant and traveling the world so as a 12 yr old i had the concern whether if i traveled my kid would be a citizen(yes i was a very odd child) and i got the answer that my kid would be a citizen.
