Oddly enough I've hired lawyers to send Ted back to Canada. Or Cuba. Or Columbia. I'm not really picky at this point
 
2013-12-29 04:15:38 PM
I am certain Canadians appreciate this gesture.

Why would you do that to the poor Cubans? Or Colombians?

I'm gonna need to see his long-form birth certificate first.

All he needs to say is "Hockey sucks and Molson is sh*tter than Coors Light"

I'm pretty sure this will open up an investigation into his "claimed" US citizenship.

/not a birther
//he has not provided one shred of actual evidence to support his claims
///POPCORN!!!!11!

Meh. This is going to turn into another cracker eating moment for Ted, especially when there's a ton of other things you can be mad at him about.

Fair is fair.

Canadian Cruz needs to man up.

Mr. Cruz:
Why?  Why renounce it?

Rafael Cruz jr. decides not to run for Canadian Prime Minister and instead is close to deleting his Canadian citizenship, so he can join McCain in the triumphant class of 'damn foreigner is running to be U.S. President'

/Cruz's mother's vagina grants instant citizenship.
//the line for instant citizenship is at 3 miles today.
///Shes not a whore, as she accepts a small payment for immigration services rendered.
 
2013-12-29 04:33:53 PM
This is not necessary. Canada's already disowned him. We etched him onto our grand list of Exiled Undesirables some time ago, right between Justin Bieber and Nickleback.
 
2013-12-29 04:35:35 PM
As a Canadian, I'm having trouble seeing the downside here.

Cheers.

To me, it looks like Eduardo is putting things in place for a presidential run in 2016. I do hope he runs and gets the nomination. If that happens, there's little chance he'd choose anyone other than another Teabagger as a running mate. A pair of TeaTard candidates on a national ticket would likely lead to an easy Democratic win. Plus, it would shine a bright, impossible-to-ignore spotlight on the GOP's moral bankruptcy as Señor Cruz tries to peddle his empty(-headed) policy ideas.

Plus the comedy would be non-stop. Not to mention the delicious flow of Republican Tears in November 2016 - Awesome.
 
2013-12-29 04:36:27 PM
Yeah, but Bryan Adams and Celine Dion are Canada's greatest crimes against humanity.
 
2013-12-29 04:37:15 PM
The article forgets to mention that Canada will not abolish his Canadian citizenship until Cruz can shop proof of U.S.A. citizenship

/'Green card' is not U.S.A. citizenship.

The comedy of Gold GOLD Jerry of this?  Every Cruz supporter I know in real life is also a damn birther.  Cruz fans here in Texas are already arguing over this.  Some have come up with a compromise:  "It's ok to break the law because they let Obama get away with it."

Apart from looking like a cross-eyed, color blind Mormon I used to know, he also looks like Grandpa Muenster.

I know it's ad-hominem and doesn't deal with his ideological malfeasance, but the man on the street won't be able to get past the appearance. Hell, can he even see over the podium?

FTFA    Under U.S. law, a child born with even one American parent is automatically entitled to citizenship, even if the birth takes place outside the country. Canada, like the United States, also confers automatic citizenship to anyone born on its soil, regardless of the parents' nationalities.

This is what I could never understand about the birther bullshiat.  His mother was american, who his father was and whether he actually was born in kenya was inconsequential by the fact that his mother was american. case closed.

If it's Hillary Clinton vs. Ted Cruz in 2016, I'm moving to New Zealand.

You and the Canadian authorities both.

This is the best part.

Canadian law (like most countries) mandates that you cannot render yourself stateless by renouncing your citizenship.

Raphael Eduardo Cruz is going to have to prove to the Canadian government's satisfaction that he has citizenship status in another country before they allow him to renounce his Canadian citizenship.

This means he is going to have to jump through all the hoops that the birthers were demanding of President Obama.

He has to prove not only that his mother was an American citizen at the time of his birth, he also has to provide documentation that she qualifies under the same arcane laws of the day specifying her age and amount of time spent in and out of the country ... the same legal jungle that the birthers are forever citing in their lame attempts to make Mr. Obama a foreigner.

Right in the middle of an election.

At the time Obama was born there was some weirdly written law in place where the US parent had to have been physically living in the US for 5 years after the age of 14, so with his mother being 18 it was impossible for her to have met the requirement even if she never set foot outside the US. Don't know why they had the law written this stupidly, but they did.

Holy shiat. If it weren't for "ad hominem" or "strawman" claims, accusations, assertions, assumptions,...etc. there would be no internet.

If Cruz runs for POTUS in 2016 it will be kinda awkward for over 40% of the republicans that called for Obama's "long form" birth certificate.

Who am I kidding?  They all voted for Romney while calling a duplicate to Romneycare "the worst thing that has ever happened to the US".

Principles are not a burden conservatives have.

he's actually too much of a douchewitz to retain his canadian citizenship...

so if he wasn't going to renounce it, we probably would have had to take it away.

I don't believe it. That sounds like a special rule for someone who's parent of some residency status other than "citizen". Do you have some documentation?
