Au naturel…

I said it eight years ago when then Senator Obama was running for president and I’ll say it again now while Senator Cruze is running: If you are the genetic offspring of a United States citizen you are the very definition of a “natural born citizen.” For better or worse, American citizenship is granted through the “right of the soil” and well as the “right of blood.” You’re a citizen because at least one of your parents were citizens or because you had the great good fortune to be born upon this happy land of ours.

It buggers the imagination that we are even entertaining this discussion. Again.

That is all.
