Citizenship redefined

United States Constitution

The United States Freedom Army does not endorse any political candidates. The United States Freedom Army does endorse the United States Constitution!

In a previous post (“A letter to Charles Krauthammer regarding Citizenship”) we exposed some of the problems with our current Constitutional definition of citizenship and showed some of the problems it poses for individuals who are having difficulty getting their eligibility. We discussed in that post some of the difficulties Ted Cruz is having with his eligibility to be President. We also believe Marco Rubio, although he is a citizen, is not at present under the Constitution a natural born citizen and is therefore not constitutionally eligible to be President since at the time of his birth neither of his parents were citizens. Having said all of this, we believe the peoples’ representatives now need to look at the Constitution and redefine citizenship in a way that is more appropriate for the modern world.

In 1787 when citizenship was defined a family was making great progress if they could travel 20 miles per day. In 1868 when Amendment XIV, which further redefined citizenship, was adopted, a family was making great progress if they could travel 50 miles in a day. Today a family can travel almost anywhere on planet Earth in one day. What made sense in 1787 and 1868 to lawmakers does not make as much sense today, particularly with the disintegration of the nuclear family that we now, unfortunately, see so often.

The Constitutional Amendment we are seeking should have as a minimum these four points included and specified in detail:

* The criteria for citizenship should to be changed. We will discuss this in more detail below.

* Dual citizenship should be made illegal. Dual citizens should declare for one country or another or their citizenship may be automatically revoked.

* A person’s citizenship may be revoked. This should only be in extreme cases and may require a jury trial. For example, the U.S. citizen that fought for the Taliban against the United States should have had his citizenship revoked.

* It should be reaffirmed that non-citizens are not necessarily guaranteed protection under the U.S. Constitution, particularly if they have acted illegally.

The general criteria for citizenship should be that if your mother (the female contributor of your DNA) is a citizen at the time of your birth then you are a citizen and a natural born citizen. At the time of your birth if you do not meet this criterion you are not a citizen. Without getting into all the complications (adoptions, naturalization, test tube babies, etcetera) that may arise later and may allow an individual to become a citizen this should be the fundamental rule for citizenship.

So why do we exclude the male contributors? It takes a female approximately 9 months to produce a child so a female is limited as to how many children she can produce in her lifetime. A male can produce several children in a 9 month period and, if he is a good talker, probably several more. Furthermore, it is much easier to determine who the mother is and often not as easy in today’s world to determine who is the father.

This is a fundamental problem with our political system namely that the Constitution is never updated to reflect conditions in the modern world and so we are always having to use rules that may be outmoded or obsolete. The only way to modify these rules is by amendment and because it is not easy to amend the Constitution our politicians try to sneak around the rules by ignoring the Constitution, writing laws that amend the Constitution, or by getting their ideological friends placed in the court systems to find clever legal ways (legal sophistry) to change the meaning of words and circumvent the rules. This is why we see chaos in government, why our system of government is out of control, and why we refer to it as a rogue government.

    • I’m hoping and praying that we can recruit a lot of concerned ‘citizens’ who want our constitution followed to the letter. God is being merciful to America one last time. We had better band together in prayer and use the brains the good Lord gave us for His divine direction. The father of our country, George Washington, committed much to prayer. He predicted our very present state coming to be if we didn’t uphold our constitution and commit issues and dangers to our great land to prayer.

  2. Our constitution is beinging trampled on by the current administration and we better take a stand against the tyranny that is the current administration before it is to late and we have no country left to defend. I believe this is the beginning of the end of the USA that your fathers, brothers and sisters and grandparents sged their blood for and made the ultimate sacrifice for. We better wake up be it is all flushed right downdamn toilet. May God Bless us all in this fight that is about to be forced on all red blooded patriots! We will defend our country to the end.till our last breath. God Bless America!!’

  3. AMERICA Must First Repent To Almighty GOD for all of the sin and transgressions , our nation has committed against HIM and the world , if we are to survive as a nation.
    I simply do not understand how our government could allow itself to betray “We The People” in so many ways. I will not even attempt to make a list because I consider you to be highly intelligent and if your eyes are open at all , I’m sure you know the things of which I speak. We simply want The White House,The House of Representatives The Senate and Supreme Court to do their jobs !

    With all of the unlawful acts of the POTUS and Congress, in regard to Our Constitution and Our Rights, I would like to know why you and the rest of Congress has not called for The Impeachment of Barrack Obama ? His actions are appalling and disgraceful not only to the American Public and Patriots but also to the world. All of America is set for a revolution, the likes of which the world has never seen or can even imagine. We are utterly disgusted with the government and the direction and actions it has taken against our rights and civil liberties.
    The only thing necessary for EVIL to prosper ; is for good men to do nothing. We The People (millions) have elected You “The Few” to represent us, our opinions, our needs, to raise our voice against tyranny and to Defend , Protect and Honor Our U.S. Constitution against ALL ENEMIES…Foreign and Domestic. I call on you to act upon your oath and let your voice be heard above all the nay sayer’s and put them on notice that if they do not fulfill their duties they can and will be replaced.

    That means not being afraid to point out the main purpose of the Second Amendment. It is not to accommodate hunters; it’s not to allow people to engage in target practice; it’s not even only for protection from common criminals. The main purpose of the Second Amendment is to give citizens the means to protect themselves from a tyrannical government and all enemies; Foreign and Domestic !
    If we are embarrassed to state, loudly and clearly, what the Constitution actually says, then the case for liberty is lost by default.
    What is needed is a national referendum that confirms the true meaning of the Second Amendment — that every citizen, regardless of which state he resides in, has a God-given right to carry any kind of gun he chooses at any time, concealed or open, without permission from any local, state, or federal authority.
    Sorry, but I just don’t recall the Founders ever saying anything about a law-abiding citizen needing a permit to carry a gun.

    I venture to say if only one citizen had a weapon to defend him or herself during any of the recently reported terrorist attacks the out come would have been very different and many innocent lives would have been saved.

    Please stand up for our Second Amendment rights and reject any and all calls for new gun control legislation. We Only Need To Enforce The Lawful Laws We Have Already Enacted.

    Respectfully,
    Colonel Jerry Vance , Chaplain

    • I couldn’t agree with you more regarding God, Constitution and taking a stand. We have been shoved into the warm water while the heat was gently raised unto boiling. There may just be enough time to jump out before we are destroyed. I have observed over my 59 yrs. a change that I started warning Americans about 31 years ago. I knew we would find ourselves right where we are now. What bothers me more than predicting the inaction of our people to preserve the original intent of our forefathers is that nobody may stand even now. The words of Dietrich Bonhoeffer ring load and clear at this time in our nation. If we like our President elect or not, I am sure he is the best chance for doing what needs done. We can’t behave as we have in the past with our set it and forget it mentality. We can’t elect Donald Trump, toss him in the White House amongst the liberal press, vicious pouting scourge democratic politicians and their violent prone brain wash liberal following. I guarantee you our chance will die if we sit back on the couch and don’t come out swinging with Trump and Pence. There is no bench in this game and the game is already deadly. I have made my choice. Give me liberty or give me death!

    • I feel now that Donald Trump will be our President come January, he will return this country back to its proud standing. He has a pure heart and no hidden agenda. He saw where our country was headed under Socialist Obama and Clintons, and put his comfortable life aside to right things. We all should pray he succeeds. People who worry he has no experience shouldn’t. He will be surrounded by people to guide him. President Reagan was not a politician when he was voted in. Give Trump a chance. He loves this country that has been so good to him in his real estate business.

  4. My biggest problem here is the manner of inocent until proven guilty but what I see is make a deal for a guilty plea then strip them of their rights. Often by lieing &or people not doing their jobs or in some cases such as a public defender a bonus for convictions what will you plead guilty to to get out of jail now ? Now of course this is not legal which is why the guilty plea requires waiving your rights but I this is often the doorway for the courts use int these people for meal tickets . Setting them up to fail requiring things that are down right I’m moral and inhuman in some cases paying for convictions ? Tell me how much longer do you sit in jail if your innocent ??3 weeks ?You freaking people have lost your minds

    • Also, I do not see it anymore as “innocent until proven guilty”, it has been turned around to guilty until proven innocent! This year a family member went through exactly how I stated it! This person was jailed for 3 months, due to the courts being so busy with so many gang members, most of them illegal citizens, most in their teens, from the bus loads Obama sent into our country from Mexico. 17 were arrested for murder, never returned to their country, El Salvador, Mexico, but given the same court appearance time, with my family member, with the Public Defender, paid for by The American citizens! Explain the fairness in that!!!

  5. How does the state of California restrict the citizens of that so called state of the Union or Republic of the United States so heavily on a right to own firearms and ammo now even is being attacked by the left, is their no one of that state that can or will do something to overturn the rights restrictions and also the states of New Jersey, New York, and several other ones also
