Until and unless the Constitution is amended to change that wording; that is the CONSTITUTIONAL LAW! POTUS must be a natural born citizen!

It;s the term “natural born citizen” which has never been legally defined. That;s what this entire debate is about. Those three words. The Framers never told us what they meant by them, and therefore it is the responsibility of the Court to define the term.

And since it;s not defined, that’;s why McCain, Rubio, Jindal, Cruz…..and anyone in such situations can run if they wish. Nobody but the courts can stop them.

That ruling “disparages” no one; and if parents are serving on US posts abroad those are also considered US soil, so as long as the kid is born on base,

Not always possible, hence the disparagement. Not all overseas bases are major operations; a problematic pregnancy might have no choice but to handled at a local hospital.

Apparently you were raised here, but you seem to lack the AMERICAN mindset!

Well (chuckles) there’s another term which is not defined. I have nothing in common politically or socially with, say, a far lefty raised in San Francisco who supports open borders, but neither of us has the right to say that the other doesn’t have an “American mindset”. This is a very large and diverse nation and trying to find agreement on what something like that means is not possible.
