Nothing of substance to add, only hyperbole? Figures.
Nothing 'The silenced majority' said was wrong or incorrect.
Natural born Citizen hasn't been fully defined.
Take notice and learn.
88 U.S. 162
Minor v. Happersett
Argued: February 9, 1875 --- Decided: March 29, 1875
The Constitution does not, in words, say who shall be natural-born citizens. Resort must be had elsewhere to ascertain that. At common-law, with the nomenclature of which the framers of the Constitution were familiar, it was never doubted that all children born in a country of parents who were its citizens became themselves, upon their birth, citizens also. These were natives, or natural-born citizens, as distinguished from aliens or foreigners. Some authorities go further and include as citizens children born within the jurisdiction without reference to the citizenship of their [p168] parents. As to this class there have been doubts, but never as to the first. For the purposes of this case it is not necessary to solve these doubts. It is sufficient for everything we have now to consider that all children born of citizen parents within the jurisdiction are themselves citizens. The words "all children" are certainly as comprehensive, when used in this connection, as "all persons," and if females are included in the last they must be in the first. That they are included in the last is not denied. In fact the whole argument of the plaintiffs proceeds upon that idea.
Minor v. Happersett
Did you get that, or should I repeat it?
It hasn't been fully defined.
And if the Fourteenth Amendment applied that is where they would have turned, instead of saying the Constitution doesn't define it and turning elsewhere.
This is a legitimate issue.
You also need to learn why the Courts are dismissing the claims.
It has to do with 'standing' to bring the case in the first place, not with it being ludicrous.
Secondly, in regards to the Sct. They can only be the final arbiter in regards to these issues.
Get back to me when you comprehend what that means.

He is not nuts yet. He is merely jumping the gun. He should first deal with the war crimes commited by Bush and Cheney.
It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.
Some birthers are just people who want some more answers because what they see doesn't seem right to them. they're not all foaming at the mouth. Though I guess I would be defending SOME birthers, yes.
If you believe that the term Natural Born Citizen has been clearly defined, then I believe you are suspect to falling for just about anything...
