    Exactly as it reads...
    At the adoptioon of the constitution, there were many that were citizens but not natural born....but if you were not =natural born AT THAT TIME, you were still eligible.
    Anyone NOT naturally born since then is NOT eligible.
    It had to do with how many natural borns at the time existed.

    This first few American Presidents were not born in the country called the United States of America.

    So it was taking into account all the people that were already alive before the Constitution, to be able to become President.

    Anyone that showed up in the country the day after, was SOL.

    What does that have to do with burfers?

    It is only a part of the whole story that debunks the birther myth. The way I was reading it made it alsmost sound as if NO ONE who wasn't alive at the time of the adoption of the Constitution would be eligible. Hence, why I asked.

    You might want to take a step back.

    When you are trying to prove people wrong, don't take the "at all cost" stance. Cuz the logic you just used is very very twisted.

    If that "20%" thing still holds true what is truly astounding is that there are 60 million Americans that stupid and gullible...fuck it..they are not "stupid"...they are mentally ill!

    Greatest insane asylum in the world probably..greatest country? When one fifth of your population is certifiably nutz how can that be?:eek:

    THIS.

    Fighting birthers is the same as fighting any other conspiracy theorist, in that you can't win, they will never admit they are wrong (or an idiot), and the best you can do is state your case, and eventually walk away, because thier belief in thier own stupid ideas trumps any logic or reasoning.

    Unless you have the ability to withstand waves and waves of teh stupid, stay away from these topics for your own mental health. I tried to participate in truther threads, but the endless stream of "duh" just got to me in the end.
