Carnival, carnival

57th Carnival of the Liberals awaits your viewing at Worldwide Webers.  It features some serious thinking about sex education, among other thought provokers.

156th Carnival of Education pitches the midway at Creating Lifelong Learners. One of the sideshows, Noirlecroi, caught my eye with a post on how to set up a classroom to teach social studies.  Who knew?

    Under U.S. naturalization law, a person born to a citizen of the U.S. is a citizen of the U.S., regardless where they were born.

    This issue was also alive in 1964 — Barry Goldwater was born in Arizona prior to statehood. My recollection is someone sued to stop his campaign, and the federal courts ruled that Goldwater was eligible to run, as a citizen. George Romney was a U.S. citizen, as were his parents. The Mormons who moved to Mexico in the 1890s generally kept their U.S. citizenship. Remember, George Romney, Mitt’s father, also ran for president, in 1968, with no challenge to his citizenship.

    Had George Romney won, would we have had anything like Watergate?

    I don’t know if it is on topic, but I discovered a perhaps interesting legal and historical question. Is John McCain a “natural born citizen” of the U.S.? “No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President”

    McCain was born in the Panama Canal Zone, which has been recognized as sovereign Panamanian territory since a treaty of 1936. Certainly McCain is an American citizen born of American parents, but is he “natural born”? Panamanians born in the Canal Zone were citizens of Panama.

    It is also funny that Mitt Romney’s father, George, was a Mexican or Mexican-American if you like, and now Mitt is the most anti-immigrant candidate.
