Re: The Constitutional Eligibility of the President-elect
Is Barack Obama a Natural Born Citizen as defined by Article II, Section I, of the United States Constitution?
Every President born before the adoption of the Constitution was eligible because of the grandfather clause of Article II, Section I:
"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."
As long as the parents gave birth to the future President on US soil after they became citizens, then that person is a natural born citizen. Since none of the drafters of the Constitution were US born, the grandfather clause allowed for 'Citizens of the United States at the time of the Adoption of the Constitution' to become Presidents. After that no person except a natural born Citizen could become President of the United States.
Barack Obama had dual nationality at birth. The status of the candidate at the time of the election is not relevant to the provisions of the Constitution. What is relevant is his status “at birth.” If one is not “born” a natural born citizen, he can never become a natural born citizen.
Since Barack Obama's father was not a United States Citizen at the time of the President-elects birth, Barack Obama is not a natural born citizen.
The President-elect has maintained that he was born in the United States. Even this fact has yet to be proven conclusively. It has not been proven to date, because Obama has chosen to spend more than $500,000 in legal fees to avoid turning over a $20 "Certificate of Live Birth". One has to wonder what, if anything, he may be hiding. However this has nothing to do with the ‘Natural Born’ issue.
The real question is not whether Barack Obama was born in the United States, and thus a Citizen of the United States. The real question is does he qualify as a “Natural Born” US Citizen?
Please Defend our Constitution by granting a full hearing to the cases brought before the court on this matter.
Sincerely, Larry Walker, Jr.
