Questions continue to abound whether US Senator and Presidential candidate Ted Cruz is eligible to run for President of the United States.

For a politician, doubt is death and truth irrelevant.

But what is the truth?

Who is saying that Ted Cruz is ineligible?

  • The liberal media, SNL, and MSNBC
  • Donald Trump, his #1 opponent
  • Progressive, liberal politicians who know he is a principled conservative
  • Establishment Republicans who know that Cruz is principled, not a compromiser on key policies.

The Constitution stipulates the following requirements for someone to become President:

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.

Cruz is 46 years old, has lived in the United States for more than fourteen years.

But is he a natural born citizen?

Here are seven reasons which prove that Ted Cruz is a natural born US citizen, and is eligible to run for President:

  1. His mother is an American Citizen, born in Delaware.
  1. The Natural Born Clause was clarified very early in the history of the Republic, which includes a child born to one American Citizen, abroad.
  1. Former Presidential candidate John McCain was born in the Panama Canal. Former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney’s father George was born in Mexico. Despite the origin of their births outside of the United States, they both ran for President without questions challenging their citizenship.
  1. Former US Senator Barry Goldwater was born in the Arizona Territories, yet he ran for President in 1964 without any uproar over his citizenship.
  1. Ted Cruz never underwent a naturalization process. He did not need to, because he is an American citizen.
  1. If Ted Cruz were ineligible, so would the first eight Presidents of the United States, since they were born as British citizens.
  1. Donald Trump never made Cruz’ eligibility an issue, until the US Senator began rising in the polls.

  1. WE need a movement to get Christians registered to vote and a movement to make them understand that if they are registered to vote they need to get to the polls. God calls us to ‘respect the government’ 1 Peter 2:13-17, that ‘we are subject to our authorities’ Titus 3:1-2; the bible says ‘we are not to associate with those who are given to change’ Proverbs 24:21 and ‘we are to seek peace and prosperity for our city’ Jeremiah 29:7, so regardless of whether we think Jesus should come back tomorrow’ and letting an immoral nation arise to power by not voting accelerates this, or whether you ultimately decide that ‘God is in charge anyway (which he is) it is our civil duty to vote. How can I be of service on a larger scale?

    1. what can I do, I’m drawn to the suggestive – maybe there’s a Samaritans group for compulsive limerickers?I think any decent young fellarwould see all the problems and tell her- wedding giant crustaceansis frought with frustration- you wouldn’t undress her, you’d shell her.

  2. Even Rafael (there is no “Ted”) Cruz stated the definition of Natural Born Citizen; “A child born in the U.S.A. from 2 citizen parents.”
    Rafael is a British subject, born in a British Colony.
    Rafael Sr. was not a U.S. citizen & Rafael Jr. was not born in the U.S.A.
    Why is Craig obsessed with Cruz?

  3. Because Ted is a strong Evangelical Christian who MEMORIZED the Constitution. He is gaining momentum and is the only one tough enough to overrun the RINO called Trump!

  4. If you are for Trump over Cruz keep in mind that the next president will probably appoint one or two Supreme Court Justices. How pro-life is Trump? I would trust Cruz’s judgement over Trump’s on that issue without a doubt.

  5. Why are you discussing this now? It is apparent, by pass election, (Obama) that the people and government don’t care eitherway.

  6. This article at the Constitution Society website provides some very compelling evidence that Cruz may not be eligible to be President. The Constitutional natural born requirement for the President is exclusively different than those who become a citizen by naturalization which applies to Cruz.

    I like Cruz very much and, if the Supreme Court rules he is eligible, I’d have no problem with voting for him in November. I hope this is settled by SCOTUS soon.


    1. Tim, for you to say that, indicates you read nothing at the link I provided. Also, you apparently do not know anything about the naturalization laws. Even the children of military service members born outside of the US at military installations located on foreign soil become US citizen via the naturalization process. This process was confirmed to me by a friend and retired service member who’s son was born in England.

      Congress created and has changed the naturalization laws several times over the years. What’s important to understand is the naturalization laws at the time of Cruz’s birth. It’s interesting that no one has asked Cruz, or his parents, by what process he became a US citizen when he was born in Canada. He used to have dual citizenship.

  7. If they want to quibble about Cruz and his citzenship, then they must also look at Obama’s. His father wasn’t a citizen, either.

    BTW, Cruz’ family was only in Canada because of work.

  8. Hello! Someone in my Mysspace group shared this website
    with us so I came to check it out. I’m definitely enjoying the information. I’m book-marking and will be tweeting this to my followers!
    Wonderful blog and wonderful desiggn and style.

  9. Since my first comment above, I’ve written an essay the includes lots of resources that is backed up with links to supporting documentation and references.

    Unfortunately, I’m convinced that Ted Cruz is not a “natural born Citizen” as required by Article II.

  13. Citizen Ted Cruz
    Ted Cruz was not born in the United States, therefore he is not a “natural born citizen” of the United States. Canadian born to an American mother he may well be a “citizen” of the United States, with the required paperwork.

    Merriam-Webster Dictionary. 3 words to explain “natural born citizen”

    natural………………”having an essential relationship with someone or something”

    something…. ….. .”a person or thing of consequence.”

    consequence …. “a conclusion derived through logic” of consequence and the essential relationship of being a “natural born citizen” of the United States.

    Article 6 “This Constitution and the laws of the United States which shall be in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the Authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the Land;……Any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the contrary notwithstanding.”

    Article 2. Sec. 1 “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:..”

    The 14th Amendment. “All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States….”

    Let us say, Ted Cruz instead of being born in Canada he was born in Russia. Would we allow that? If so, we will be setting a disastrous new precedent for the future. The Constitution’s “natural born citizen” allegiance to this country and no other, the United States of America. Not counting the many in State legislatures, there are 175 members in Congress because of their seditious stand against any Jan 6th Capitol Building Congressional inquiry, the reality being that they would have no problem in support of Ted Cruz or of any president having allegiance to two countries.

    Problems for Ted Cruz continue. Art.3 Sec.6 of the Texas Constitution states, “Qualifications of Senators. No person shall be a Senator unless he is a citizen.” Ted Cruz was elected to the United States Senate in 2013 representing Texas. He was not a citizen of the United States until May 14th 2014, 1-1//2 years later. The ease at which a foreign agent is able to infiltrate our government.

     Ted Cruz should not be a United States Senator for the State of Texas, or a presidential candidate.
