Current Event: Ted Cruz Running for President

Our constitution clearly states that you can’t just live in the United States to hold the office of presidency but you must also be a natural born citizen. Ted Cruz is one of the cantidates running for president of the 2016 election, yet he was not born in the United States. He was born in Calgary Canada. So the question is, should we let him? I strongly believe that we as a nation should abide by what the constitution says. If we let a non-natural born citizen be our president, then that is basically saying the constitution is no longer of meaning to us. This will effect me not so much now but in 4 years I will have the opprotunity to vote for the leaders of our country.
