Article 2, Section 1, Clause 5 of the U.S. Constitution 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 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.
Although the term natural born citizen is not defined in the Constitution, it is defined in other writings by the framers. Many have tried to change the original intent through court rulings and articles, but the only way the original intent of the Constitution can be changed is by a properly ratified Amendment.
Eliza and I are honored to have Commander Charles Kerchner (Ret.) join us on Freedom Quest Radio today. He is an expert on the meaning of natural born citizen and explains why neither Barack Obama, Ted Cruz, or Marco Rubio meet the requirements to be President of the United States.
