With all respect to you and my other RWS brethren, I'm not on board with that.

If they are attacking or have attacked the US, have declared themselves our enemy, and embed themselves with our enemy, eschewing their loyalty to the country, I consider that a renunciation of the rights of citizenship.

I don't, however, condone in any way the idea that the president or anyone else in the echelons of government should have any discretion to assert for themselves who is the enemy. There has to be concrete, and general concurrence based on evidence that the US citizen in question has turned against us and has taken action against us. I think that's reasonable.
