The Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of the “natural born Citizen” Term In Our United States Constitution

The Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of the “natural born Citizen” Term In Our United States Constitution

By: CDR Charles F. Kerchner, Jr. (Retired) Written: 28 February 2016 Last Updated: 22 Mar 2016

Who: The various sovereign, free, and independent several states, as a result of the revolution against England had loosely banded together in a confederation to battle England and thus formed the new United States in 1776. In 1787 they decided to convene a convention of the states to draw up a Constitution to form a stronger, “more perfect” union and appointed delegates from their several states for that purpose. The delegates met in the summer of 1787 in Philadelphia, PA to write the new contract

1. on behalf of We the People represented by our several states. While there, the delegates considered, among many things, the eligibility qualifications for who could be the President of the new stronger more perfectly unified United States under the in-draft and newly proposed Constitution of the United States

2. Early on they considered requiring the President to be only a “Citizen”

3. Being very concerned about foreign intrigue and influence entering into the halls of power this was thought not to be a strong enough protection against foreign influence

4. on the person who would hold the singularly most powerful office under the 1 Constitution of the United States: http://www.archives.gov/exhibits/charters/constitution_transcript.html
