You need a birth certificate to be a natural citizen
Sorry Col. Henning, so I did not get that Ted Cruz was born in Calgary or Vancouver — after all, they are both in Canada. Maybe you should read the Constitution of the United States, Article 2, Section 1. And I quote, “No person except a natural born citizen or a citizen of the United States, shall be eligible to the office of president; neither shall any person be eligible to the office who shall not have attained to the age of 35 years and been 14 years a resident within the United States.”
In the above quote, is there anything about passports? Anyone residing in the U.S. can apply for a passport after submitting the following: 1) passport application either via the Internet or the post office, 2) two photos 2 inch by 2 inch, 3) birth certificate (original copy only) and the required fee. Passports don’t make you a natural citizen of the U.S., birth certificates do.
