For whom it may concern and for what it’s worth:
After carefully reviewing each of the Republican Party’s candidates, I have determined that none of them will do anything to stop the inevitable train wreck that is about to befall our nation. Therefore, I will neither endorse or give my vote to the Republican Party, who has betrayed the Constitution once again. Not one of them represents my principles, to which I base on Scripture and our Founding Principles.
If the American people are set on this path, I will not join in their downward spiral with the Democrats, while they chase each other around the toilet bowl. My vote, nay, my stamp of approval will not be given in these matters. The glory of destroying this once Great Nation is to them and them alone, I will have no part of it.
Were parties here divided merely by a greediness for office, as in England, to take a part with either would be unworthy of a reasonable or moral man. But where the principle of difference is as substantial, and as strongly pronounced as between the republicans and the monocrats of our country, I hold it as honorable to take a firm and decided part, and as immoral to pursue a middle line, as between the parties of honest men and rogues, into which every country is divided. ~Thomas Jefferson, letter to William Branch Giles (1795)
With that said, I don’t have much to say about the discombobulated election process itself right now, other than its similarity to Professional Wrestling and how far we’ve strayed from the 12th Amendment… but I do have plenty to say about the wolves in sheep’s clothing who are seeking the highest office in the land. These wolves correctly anticipate republicans to faithfully honor the Republican Party every election cycle by giving their votes to whoever the Republican nominee is. Gone is all regard for how corrupt the nominee actually is, as the voters methodically circle the wagons around their new found political messiah(s). All because of a reactionary response to the possibility of a Democrat winning. A vicious cycle that must be broken if we are ever to elect true patriotic statesmen to government again, ones who will actually honor their oath to:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.
For Congress , federal Judges, Military etc:
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.
The oaths are not to Party or Faction or Individual, but to the Constitution. Which is why Thomas Jefferson wrote:
Though written constitutions may be violated in moments of passion or delusion, yet they furnish a text to which those who are watchful may again rally and recall the people. They fix, too, for the people the principles of their political creed. ~Thomas Jefferson, letter to Joseph Priestley (1802)
So let us put away our partisan glasses and examine the candidates’ principles, as well as our own, through the lens of the Constitution.
Ted Cruz was born in Canada to a wandering Cuban father and supposedly American Citizen mother. Despite the fallacious and erroneous arguments of those claiming that only one citizen parent is needed to create a natural born Citizen, new evidence had been found which closes the book on Ted Cruz’s eligibility.
It’s a fact that Ted was given Canadian citizenship upon his birth (1970) in Canada. But Canada didn’t recognize dual citizenship until 1977, which would mean Ted’s parents conscientiously made a choice and chose Canadian citizenship over American citizenship for him.
If the above is false, then why hasn’t Ted Cruz produced his U.S. Consular Report of Birth Abroad that his mother was required to obtain in order confer her U.S. Citizenship unto him?
It appears the Cruz family were planning on staying in Canada. Unfortunately, things took a turn for the worse when Raphael Cruz abandoned his wife and child in Canada, which caused them to return to the United States. Apparently everyone just assumed the little Canadian at birth automatically followed his mother’s citizenship status, which allowed Teddy to slip through the cracks all these years.
In defending himself as a “natural born Citizen” of the United States, Cruz has publicly hung himself. Cruz has stated he has never been naturalized, which he claims is proof of him being a U.S. natural born Citizen. If Ted Cruz has never been naturalized, that would mean he is an illegal alien who is currently holding one of Texas’ U.S. Senate seats illegally.
Since that disqualifies Ted Cruz on the spot, there is no need for me to point out his contradictions of being a strict constituionalist and conservative. The same can be said for Marco Rubio.
Neither one of Rubio’s parents were U.S. Citizens at the time of his birth. He was wrongly granted citizenship from a erroneous interpretation of the 14th Amendment:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the state wherein they reside.
Until Rubio’s parents naturalized, they were still subject to the jurisdictions of Cuba, not the United States. Hence, Rubio is also not a natural born Citizen as required by the Constitution.
How did we get to this point? Because for decades, the American people have continually shrugged off the responsibility and duties of self-governance and let the wolves they elect to government decide all legal and moral matters for them. This must stop at once if we are ever to regain our Liberty.
I apprehend no danger to our country from a foreign foe. Our destruction, should it come at all, will be from another quarter. From the inattention of the people to the concerns of their government, from their carelessness and negligence, I must confess that I do apprehend some danger. I fear that they may place too implicit a confidence in their public servants, and fail properly to scrutinize their conduct; that in this way they may be made the dupes of designing men, and become the instruments of their own undoing. Make them intelligent, and they will be vigilant; give them the means of detecting the wrong, and they will apply the remedy. ~Daniel Webster
