What Kind of Citizen of the United States are you?

The Constitution for the United States of America describes two different Citizen qualifications.

There is the Citizen of the United States in reference to being a member of the House of Representatives which allows Citizenship at eighteen years of age which requires one to be 25 years of age and seven years a Citizen of the United States.

"No Person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the Age of twenty five Years, and been seven Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State in which he shall be chosen." Article I Section 2 Clause 2, 1787 constitution for the United States of America.

There is the Citizen of the United States in reference to being a member of the Senate which allows Citizenship at twenty-one years of age which requires one to be 30 years of age and nine years a Citizen of the United States.

"No Person shall be a Senator who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty Years, and been nine Years a Citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an Inhabitant of that State for which he shall be chosen." Article I Section 3 Clause 3, 1787 Constitution for the United States of America.

Can anyone decipher from a constitutional perspective what the ramifications are for these two distinctly different styles of Citizenship.

I encourage Ron Paul to chime in here as well.

There is a discord in our culture and most of us have long forgot our first duty to ourselves is know the law and that means all the law.

How we go forward to bring back this country to Freedom is our individual choice.

citizen of the U.S.

anyone that lives on a U.S. possession, territory, wash d.c., military base or receives a paycheck from the government is a citizen of the U.S. everyone else is considered a Citizen of the state they live in. the 50 states are not under the jurisdiction of the United States. if you declare you are a U.S. citizen under perjury, you are no longer considered a Citizen of your state and therefore do not have the protection of the Constitution, but rather have priviledges given to you by the government. When someone asks if you are a U.S. citizen, ask for the definition, most of the time it will be the definition from the 14th Amendment.

I was taught

or told in government run schools that one who was born in other countries can become congressmen be it rep or senate as long as they have been a citizen for 7 / 9 years for each respective office, and live in the state in which the election was held in ect. I must admit though, I don't speak legaleeze.

I know I am neither,

as I hope you are not also.

Freedom may be worth searching for.

I have given up on my fellow Americans, (not DPers) as I will not shed one more calorie trying to awaken anyone else who is not a critical thinker and does not have the inherent feeling that something is wrong.

The Citizen of the United States

associated with the Senate at least puts one in the law under the Articles of Confederation Article IV which is
Article IV.
The better to secure and perpetuate mutual friendship and intercourse among the people of the different states in this union, the free inhabitants of each of these states, paupers, vagabonds and fugitives from Justice excepted, shall be entitled to all privileges and immunities of free citizens in the several states; and the people of each state shall have free ingress and regress to and from any other state, and shall enjoy therein all the privileges of trade and commerce, subject to the same duties, impositions and restrictions as the inhabitants thereof respectively, provided that such restriction shall not extend so far as to prevent the removal of property imported into any state, to any other state of which the Owner is an inhabitant; provided also that no imposition, duties or restriction shall be laid by any state, on the property of the united states, or either of them.

Whereas the Citizen of the United States being eighteen years of age resides on federal territory and in subject to the jurisdiction of the United States of America.

I choose as a Free Inhabitant.
