Hi, Joseph. Let me begin by stating that I am a big supported of Ted Cruz. I like his conservative principles and appreciate his willingness to take a stand for what is right, even if he takes heat from both Republicans and Democrats.
However, I am also a constitutionalist, and, as you know, Article II, Section 1 clearly 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 of President."
Ted Cruz was born in Canada to an American mother and a Cuban father (who became a naturalized American citizen in 2005). Ted Cruz is no more eligible to be president than Barack Obama, whose father was a British citizen from Kenya.

I know the Democrats will avoid the issue, because it would raise questions about Obama's eligibility, and Cruz's supporters will probably want to skirt the issue to keep Cruz in the race, but those of us who believe in the rule of law need to say something.
I am hopeful that you will look into the issue further and report on it in WND. Unfortunately, the eligibility issue will also keep good people like Bobby Jindal from running for president, but we either support our Constitution or we don't. If we don't, then we have nothing to protect us.
Thank you for all you do.
