Vermont Voter Files Lawsuit to Keep Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Off Vermont Presidential Primary Ballots

Early in December 2015, Vermont voter H. Brooke Paige filed a lawsuit in state court against the Vermont Secretary of State, arguing that the Secretary of State has a duty to investigate the qualifications of presidential candidates before placing them on the March presidential primary ballots. Paige does not believe that Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio are eligible because of their parents’ citizenship status. See this story. The case is Paige v Condos, in Superior Court, Washington County, 780-12-15.

Vermont Voter Files Lawsuit to Keep Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio Off Vermont Presidential Primary Ballots — 5 Comments

  1. NBC = AT BIRTH ALLEGIANCE to the USA via father.

    naturalized = AFTER BIRTH ALLEGIANCE to the USA.

    Too many SCOTUS hack MORONS to count since 1789.

    Gee- is Obama a NBC since his father was a British citizen/subject when Obama was born in 1961 ??? Duh.

  2. Obama at birth father was a subject of the Sultan of Zanzibar and only a British protected person, unĸer the terms of the Zanzibar Nationality Decree 1919 & British Nationalty Act 1948.

    Demo Rep please get your facts
    correct. At the time Obama (dad) entered the United States to attend University of Hawaii
    on a British Passport his status was only British Protected Person.

  3. By Cap. 134 of the The National
    -ity and Naturalization Decree
    of 13 November 1911, Obama at birth became Zanzibari. That means he still is a subject of
    His Highness the Sultan.

  4. A natural born citizen, at birth, has only one legally recognized citizenship. To have more than one is to be burdened with split loyalties which the founding fathers were seeking to avoid. This was always the problem with Obama as well. But, since Obama was sworn in by the time that the USSC heard the case, they refused to rule on that issue to prevent everything Obama had already done from being undone, appointments to the court, laws signed, appointments made. So, the Supreme Court of the United States took the easy way out. Instead of granting the birthers their ruling, the lied and claimed that what the birthers were doing was asking them to remove Obama as president. On that basis, they denied “standing” to the birthers. But, the birthers did not ask for that. They asked for a ruling on the meaning of the words “natural born citizen.” That would have left it up to the Congress to remove Obama. The USSC openly lied to protect Obama.

  5. “A natural born citizen, at birth, has only one legally recognized citizenship.”

    That is false. There is no such requirement or concept in the Constitution. That is the unsupported opinions of cranks.

    “To have more than one is to be burdened with split loyalties which the founding fathers were seeking to avoid. ”

    That has nothing to do with the law or the Constitution. It doesn’t matter what you want or what they want. It only matters what the Constitution SAYS
