So do we go by the "Constitution" or this person De Vattel???? How about other instances in the Constitution that other Scholars have interpreted in a different light. I'll stick to what the Constitution says and what the Supreme court decides. If the Founding Fathers would of wanted to word the Constitution differently then why didn't they word it differently. Didn't they have a proof reader? Is the Constitution flawed??? What other flaws are written into the Constitution that we follow?
Wow, type in "Flaws in the Constitution" with quotes and you get 898,000 results......maybe it's time to write the right Constitution....
"the Constitution does not define natural-born citizenship, and the Supreme Court has not given Congress an authoritative definition with which to work."
I know, I know, what we need is a WABAC machine...you know like the kind Mr. Peabody used. Then we could fix things just the way certain people want them. Just remember if you change just one thing it could have a devastating effect on almost anything in the future.....our future......http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_Peabody
