For anyone not aware Indiana just joined the crazy states with the passing of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which allows discrimination based on religious beliefs.

Thanks republicans for putting our state 50 years in the past.

With the news of +Ted Cruz attempting to run for President of the United States of America I just felt the need to post the outlines of being deemed a natural born. 

Here is the definition according to the supreme court of the United States
" The weight of legal and historical authority indicates that the term
"natural born" citizen would mean a person who is entitled to U.S.
citizenship "by birth" or "at birth," either by being born "in" the
United States and under its jurisdiction, even those born to alien
parents; by being born abroad to U.S. citizen-parents; or by being
born in other situations meeting legal requirements for U.S.
citizenship "at birth." Such term, however, would not include a person
who was not a U.S. citizen by birth or at birth, and who was thus born
an "alien" required to go through the legal process of
"naturalization" to become a U.S. citizen."

Now if both Ted Cruz's parents were citizens at the time of his birth,
then he could be deemed a natural citizen, but given that his father
was a Cuban, born in Cuba, that makes his father an "alien". Had his
father been a US National or a citizen at the time of his birth I
would agree with you, however given that his father was not a U.S.
citizen at the time of his birth he is not a natural citizen.

If you don't believe me, here is a link describing what and why Cruz
is not eligible to run for President.
http://ivn.us/2013/08/13/defining-natural-born-citizen/

Incase you don't want to read the whole article
Now though the Constitution is vague in what constitutes a natural
born citizen, Congess has stepped in to attempt to fill in the gap.
Under Title 8 of the US Code, Section 1401 defines the following as
citizens of the United States upon birth… or natural born citizens:

Anyone born inside the United States.  The person must be “subject to
the jurisdiction” of the United States.  (This would exempt the child
of a diplomat, for example, from this provision.)

Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a
citizen of the U.S. does not impair the person’s status as a
citizen of the tribe

Any one born outside the United States,both of
whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has
lived in the U.S.

Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and
lived in the U.S. for at least one year and the other parent is a U.S.
national

Any one born in a U.S. possession, if one parent is a citizen and
lived in the U.S. for at least one year

Any one found in the U.S. under the age of five, whose parentage
cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not
provided by age 21

Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and
as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. who lived in the
U.S. for at least five years (with military and diplomatic service
included in this time)

So +Ted Cruz as much as you may feel that you are a natural citizen fortunately you are not a natural US citizen. I know you like to state your mom was a citizen, I have no doubt about her history and citizenship. However you father was a Cuban alien and to be a citizen both parents would have had to been citizens. So my advice would be to go ahead and back out of the race.

In order to qualify to be president, 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 … Continued

And Obama is still cleaning up the mess with no help from Republicans, but yeah let's blame the black guy.

This image is still missing a lot, like murdering close to a million people for oil.

Starting an illegal war with no end plan

Spending more time on vacation than any other president

And the list goes on

This is pretty awesome, essentially turns all glasses into smart glasses. Hopefully it isn't too expensive.

SWEET NEWS: Nestle to drop artificial flavor and color from chocolate bars ... "America’s favorite chocolate like Butterfingers, Crunch and Baby Ruth bars, are getting a makeover.
Nestle USA announced this week that it will remove artificial flavors and FDA-certified colors from all of its chocolate candy.

The company aims to become the first U.S. candymaker to remove such ingredients from its chocolate products and says by the end of the year, more than 250 products and 10 brands will be reformulated with ingredients from natural sources.

For example, in Crunch bars, a natural vanilla flavor will replace artificial vanilla used now. The center of the Butterfinger bars will now have annatto, which comes from the seeds found in fruit from the achiote tree, to replace FDA-certified colors like Red 40 and Yellow 5. In Crunch bars, natural vanilla flavor will replace artificial vanillin.

Doreen Ida, president of Nestle USA Confections & Snacks said in a statement that the move was in response to research that showed U.S. consumers prefer candy brands to be free from artificial flavors and colors. ..."
