Maybe this assists the rigging of the next election so Billary Clinton wins? (Well, just a different slant on how the previous 2 were rigged.) IS JOHN McCAIN AN ILLEGAL ALIEN? Or Just A Naturalized Citizen? He is one or the other. Either way he is Constitutionally disqualified to be elected President. He is not a natural born citizen. Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 of the Constitution states: www.usconstitution.n… No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States. John McCain was born on August 29, 1936 at the Coco Solo Air Base in the Panama Canal Zone . en.wikipedia.org/wik… The Panama Canal Zone was not even a territory of the United States but was leased property.

Chris Matthews of Hardball on MSNBC posed this question with regard to California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to all the candidates. The following is the relevant excerpt from the transcript www.nytimes.com/2007… of that first GOP debate held on May 03, 2007. MR. MATTHEWS: Okay. Let me ask you a question regarding immigration. One of prized guests here today, Governor Schwarzenegger. Looking this man in the eye, answer this question. I’m going to go down the line starting with Governor Romney. Should we change our Constitution which we believe is divinely inspired – (laughter) – to allow men like Mel Martinez, the chairman of your party, born in Cuba , great patriot, senator from Florida , and Arnold Schwarzenegger to stand here some night? Governor Romney. MR. ROMNEY: Never given that a lot of thought, but with Arnold sitting there, I’ll give it some thought, but probably not. MR. MATTHEWS: No. Woah. Yes or no? MR. : I love the governator, but – MR. MATTHEWS: (Laughs.) Well, we’ve got two no’s. MR. : — no, because I think there are other ideas that we can should be putting forward. MR. MATTHEWS: Governor Gilmore. Two no’s. We’re moving here. MR. GILMORE: No, I don’t tend to want to amend this Constitution in a variety of different ways, and this would be not a good start to do it that way. MR. MATTHEWS: So that’s a no. MR. GILMORE: That’s a no. MR. MATTHEWS: Three no’s in a row. REP. HUNTER: After I’ve served eight years as president, I’d be happy to change the Constitution for Governor Schwarzenegger. (Laughter.) MR. MATTHEWS: Three to one. MR. THOMPSON: We haven’t seen his endorsement yet, Chris. MR. MATTHEWS: Okay. Three to one; the no’s show. MR. THOMPSON: That’s a no. MR. MATTHEWS: Okay. Four no’s to one. Governor. MR. HUCKABEE: No. MR. MATTHEWS: Five to one. Senator? SEN. MCCAIN: That depends on whether he endorses me or not. (Laughter.) He and I have many similar attributes, so I have to seriously consider it. MR. MATTHEWS: Okay. We don’t know there. We got an overwhelming vote against you, Governor, in your own house. (Laughter.) Congressman? REP. PAUL: I’m “no” because I am a strong supporter of the original intent. MR. MATTHEWS: Oh, God. Okay, Mayor Giuliani. MR. GIULIANI: When he called me up to endorse him, he got me on the phone he said, “Will you endorse me,” and I was too afraid to say no. (Laughter.) So – MR. MATTHEWS: Okay, Congressman Tancredo, is it a no or yes? MR. GIULIANI: I would say yes. REP. TANCREDO: Intimidating as he might be, I’m saying no. MR. MATTHEWS: Okay, we got two yeses here. Jim – I mean John. Jim. I’m sorry. It was clearly understood by Chris Matthews and all the candidates, including Senator John McCain that: Only someone physically born within one of the States is lawfully qualified to run for president, and that … In order for a naturalized citizen like Arnold and John McCain to be qualified an Amendment to the Constitution under Article V would have to passed before a naturalized citizen could legally be elected President. So then these questions go to Rep. Ron Paul, the self professed defender of the Constitution, “Will you stand up for the Constitution and publicly demand that John McCain withdraw his candidacy for President for cause? If McCain refuses to step down will you follow through on your oath of office and file the requisite legal action to stop his candidacy?” Ron Paul should stay in the race all the way to the end hammering the other candidates with the Constitution. He should go on national TV and provide detailed examples of how it has been shredded by GWBush and the vast majority in Congress. This is a premier opportunity for Ron Paul to dramatically demonstrate to the nation and the world that he is fully commitment to uphold and defend the Constitution. He can catapult his candidacy into the front of the GOP, if he speaks the undiluted truth. The people who understand liberty, that the united States of America is a republic and not a democracy, those have given their money and campaigned relentlessly for him deserve no less. His oath of office demands it of him as well.
