    It's one thing to say someone cannot vote for someone outside of their race but it's entirely another thing to say someone will most likely vote for someone of their race when all else is equal.
    I don't know - I don't keep up with foreign politics and race issues to that degree.

    In the US I think it's clear that these things aren't that big of a concern. More and more US citizen are of mixed races and ethnicities - and we have less cultural and other divides.

    It has happened before, but there is nothing to compare it to now.

    I think we have seen our last president from the Chicago/Hawaii/Kenya area.

    He was born to an Americn woman who's husband was working in Canada.

    Same as McCain being born to an American woman who's husband was working in Panama.

    Under Article I, section 3 of the Constitution as for qualifications for senator it states: “No person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the age of thirty years, and been nine years a citizen of the United States,”

    So obviously Cruz is a citizen or he wouldn’t be serving in the U.S. Senate.

    you can bet if he wasn't there would be plenty of Democrats pointing that out.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Funny how that didn't apply for obama and he had to produce a birth certificate. Going by what the birther constitutional lawyers have told us Ted Cruz is not a US citizen.

    Obama was a senator and conservatives still asked that question. I wonder why.

    I wonder why Hillary supporters were asking the same question?... after all, they started the birther crap.


    it is amusing to think conservative took the ball Hillarys people put into play and ran with it... and now you are picking it up again trying to gain more mileage.

    You will have to ask them, but the president has different qualifications in the constitution than a senator. under Article II section I it states: 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 the President; neither shall any person be eligible to that office who shall not have attained the Age of thirty five years and been fourteen years a resident within the United States.

    So to be a senator, one only has to be a citizen of the United States for nine years. To be president one has to be a natural born citizen. Now some people take that to men born within the boundaries of the United States, that is not really the case. Anyone born from parents on official government business overseas is considered a natural born citizen. Hence John McCain being born in Panama, his father was in the Navy on official government business in Panama and hence a natural born citizen. My son was born in Bangkok Thailand and is considered a natural born citizen, I was in the army at the time stationed in Thailand.

    Anyone born overseas who's parents or a parent is an American Citizen is also considered to be a natural born citizen although there is/was a paper work drill required.

    So the question remains why the birther crap? Obama's mom was a US citizen so obama would a natural born citizen no matter where he is born
