(Jul. 23, 2012) — Back in June, I published a column demonstrating just how difficult it will be to unseat Obama in the 2012 election. In short, Obama will win a minimum of twenty states no matter what, and those twenty states represent 242 of the 270 Electoral College votes Obama needs to win re-election. Obama is only one state away from winning at the starting gate, and that state is most likely Florida.

Romney could win twenty-nine of the fifty states and still lose the election. The states in his column at the start of the 2012 race represent only 146 Electoral votes, at best. He has a long way to go to victory.

But the game could end in August at the GOP Convention.

Led by Republican news site Newsmax, a growing number of Republican talking heads across the airwaves and blogosphere are promoting Marco Rubio for Vice Presidential running mate.

In an ongoing poll, approximately 58,000 Newsmax readers answer the question Who Should Romney Pick for VP? The results are absolutely frightening!

93% of Newsmax participants would vote for Romney if the election were held today, according to poll results, demonstrating a very solid Republican demographic in the poll and a party unifying against Barack Obama.

The rest of the poll results are unbelievable…

Knowing very well that Marco Rubio is not a Natural Born Citizen of the United States, but rather an immigrant-citizen from Cuba, ineligible for the office of Vice President, 67% of Newsmax readers chose Marco Rubio for VP running mate.

According to the XII Amendment ratified in 1804 – “no person constitutionally ineligible to the office of President shall be eligible to that of Vice-President of the United States.” – and according to Article II of the U.S. Constitution, only a Natural Born Citizen of the United States is eligible for the office of President.

Many of the Republicans voting in this poll have opposed Barack Obama’s unconstitutional administration for the last four years. But they appear to have no trouble nominating their own unconstitutional VP running mate to run against Barack Obama.

According to the Newsmax poll results, 89% believe that placing an unconstitutional VP on the ticket with Romney will help Romney defeat Barack Obama in the general election. Newsmax placed fourteen potential VP choices on their ballot, only two of which are not eligible for the office of Vice President or President, Marco Rubio and Bobby Jindal, both born to foreign parents living in the U.S., a condition often referred to as anchor baby.

In addition, Marco Rubio is well on record supporting many Democrat agenda items opposed by most Republicans, including amnesty for millions of illegal aliens living in America in direct violation of our immigration and naturalization laws.

This might explain the gap between those who think Rubio might help Romney win (89%) and those willing to support Rubio (67%), a significant 22-point gap indicating that some of these folks will not vote for Rubio, even though they believe he could help Romney win.

This 22% could represent the number of participants who like Rubio and want Romney to win, but also understand that Rubio isn’t even eligible for the job.

As Florida promises to be a key state for both Romney and Obama, it isn’t hard to see the political strategy behind promoting the young and popular freshman Senator from Florida for VP. But will placing a confirmed unconstitutional candidate like Rubio on the ticket with Romney help or hurt Romney’s chances in November?

The fact is it will hurt Romney’s chances even in August at the GOP Convention, where Ron Paul and Rick Santorum aim to upset the convention, gathering a storm of Convention Delegates opposed to Romney due to his past constitutional indiscretions.

Placing Rubio or any other unconstitutional candidate on the ticket with Romney will most likely end any serious Romney challenge to Barack Obama. I would read such a move as a forfeit of the race by strategic suicide.

It would also end any political future for the promising Marco Rubio.

Florida won the heated 2000 contest for Bush and the 2008 contest for Obama. Florida is a huge gamble in 2012, not because of Florida’s large Hispanic community, but because of Florida’s even bigger retiree community.

It wasn’t Hispanics or even college-age kids foolishly voting for change who elected Obama in 2008; it was senior citizens, retirees, and as those retirees vote, so goes Florida.

More than any other issue, the Charters of Freedom are center stage in the 2012 election. If voters are presented with two equally unconstitutional choices, Obama will win re-election by default. He has twenty states and 246 Electoral votes in his column at the starting gate.

Romney will have to make his VP choice very carefully or he can end his campaign in August. Obama has demonstrated a total disregard for the Charters of Freedom and if Romney does the same thing by choosing an equally unconstitutional running mate, the people will not support that ticket in Florida or anywhere else.

The 67% of Republican Newsmax readers need to see both Rubio and Newsmax for what they really are… I’m not trying to hurt Rubio; I’m trying to save Romney and thereby, hope for our country.

If Rubio is the real hero American Son many believe him to be, he must immediately and publicly disqualify himself for the office of Vice President and then challenge Barack Hussein Obama on the same basis.

If Rubio is unwilling to do so, he is not the hero many seem willing to bet their future upon. Romney cannot defeat Obama with a ticket just as unconstitutional as Obama. And that’s where the rubber meets the road, folks…

Readers should challenge Marco Rubio to become the American hero he wants to be by contacting his Senate office and demanding he take a stand for Article II: Sen. Marco Rubio 317 Hart Senate Office Building, Washington DC, 20510 – Phone: 202-224-3041

  1. My letter to him was sent 4/20/2012, also was published here and on Patriots for America (PFA). I wonder if he has visons of granduer as he has not responded. The same letter was sent to the RNC and the GOP.gov who have also ignored it. I will call maybe they lost the letter of the FAX of the same that I sent. Also I know others have sent pretty much the same letter to Rubio. I copy my letter for those who may not have seen it. May you do the same as I WIL NOT vote if he or Jindal or anyother non-natural born citizen becomes the VP candidate and I am not alone.
    My Letter:

    April 20, 2012
    FL Senator Marco Rubio
    317 Hart Senate Office Building
    Washington, D.C. 20510
    Phone: 202-224-3041

    Dear Senator Rubio,

    Something has been bothering me for awhile and when I heard you flub the answer to the VP question I decided to write you. No, I am not one of your constituents. I am unfortunately cursed with the representation of Senators Boxer and Feinstein and Representative Waxman. As with any elected official it is anticipated that they would represent all of us, however I have found very deaf ears.

    Are you aware of the objective of the MSM as aligned with the DNC and possibly the GOP to use you to destroy this great country, I have heard you say, you love? Or is it on purpose that you allow them to speculate on your candidacy for VP? Jeb Bush, today, offered you up as Mitt Romney’s running mate. Many of us love our country as you do but are without voice to stop the progressives from stealing one of the greatest gifts God gave us beyond his son Jesus Christ. Also it seems the Tea Party phenomenon has not been as successful as we had hoped.

    You may ask, how are you being used? From the point of view of many, there is an ineligible office holder in the White House. Constitutionally it can be confirmed, it takes two citizen parents when one is born to be a “natural born citizen” the main qualification. It is my understanding that your parents were not American citizens when you were born. All the obfuscation and ignoring this will not change the fact that either you or Obama is not qualified for the office of POTUS. Your name is constantly brought up as the VP candidate for whoever is chosen for the GOP. You seem, to many, to be extremely articulate and well educated which makes you really likable to the masses. What I find disturbing is that you do not address the issue of eligibility head on. The more your name is brought up or thrown into the ring the less anyone pays attention to what the Constitution says, just like 2008. A simple statement from you of “I’m not qualified under Article II, Section I, Clause V to be President or Vice President” would change the discourse and put an end to the candidacy of Barak Obama as he has yet to present any evidence that isn’t forged of his citizenship.

    You will be used to destroy this country if you succumb to the pressure or the attraction of the fame & fortune of the office of Vice President by accepting the nomination. Twenty percent of the conservative voting bloc, in my estimation, will abstain from voting for another unqualified candidate. Do you think a Romney/Rubio ticket can win without that 20% of the vote? That 20% Sir will definitely insure the re-election of the current office holder, an unacceptable outcome for the 2012 election.

    You Sir will have been used because you and others like you refuse to address the eligibility issue against the best interests of America. My hope for you and our country is that you stay in the Senate and become a force for change that takes that institution back to the stature it once had, one that truly honors the Constitution as written. We need people like you to bring the freedoms we have lost in my lifetime back for future generations to enjoy.

  2. AN analysis for the justification in voting for AnyoneButObama 2012, (ABO 2012)

    Even Rubio……..

    Should the “0” be re-(s)elected the Republic will be lost to the coup d’état by usurpation.

    The Rule of Law lost to the Rule of Man.

    However, should the GOP ticket prevail the opportunity remains to “litigate’ the issue of the nature, definition, meaning and intent of the Constitutional idiom of natural born Citizen.

    Once “litigated” to the conclusion of a Declaratory Judgement the Operation of Law can be invoked respecting the mechanism within Article 2 and the 25th Amendment.

    That of course assumes the Court gets it correct.

    If the Court should Declare it something other that what it IS a movement for a Constitutional Amendment would be in order and give opportunity to establish “Full Vetting of Candidate Standards and Citizens Only Voting Laws uniformly throughout the States.

    There is a real crisis at the Executive level but the FACT is there are questions of Romney’s citizenship genealogy while both Rubio and the “0” are clearly out of the INTENT of A2S1C5 but the choice facing us all at the moment is dealing with the issue under the Rule of Law , if WE can keep it, or allowing the Rule of Law to fall by the wayside altogether……………

    (That is not saying that I, or any others, should give up with ongoing efforts even if they do not bare fruit. Keeping the field plowed serves its purpose.)
