"Birther" argument #2

Funny thing about being a Nation run under the idea of The Rule of Law..would-be dictators soon run into the hard fact of life that our Law usually stymies their effort for total control. Justice may be slow, but in the end, it usually prevails.

Just for review, our Constitution states that to be eligible to run for President, one must:

1) Have reached an age of 35 or older, and,

2) Be a naturally born Citizen of the United States.

It is this second requirement that has the "Birthers" in such a state of anger. First of all, there has been no DEFINITIVE proof shown that the current occupant of the Oval Office was indeed, born in the U.S., and secondly, under our Immigration rules; even IF Barry WAS born in the U.S.; that "natural born" status was lost to him when he was adopted by a foreign national and moved to that foreign nationals home country to live. His mother's status as a Native Citizen was not enough for him to retain his Citizenship, as she was too young and had lived outside America too long for that citizenship to be naturally conferred on Barry; under the BEST of circumstances,he would have held Dual Citizenship, and Dual Citizens are barred by the Constitution from holding the Office of President, Vice President, or Speaker of the House.

The FACT that Barrack Hussein Obama was legally adopted by Lolo Soetoro is not in dispute; the FACT that BHO was taken to live in Indonesia, Mr. Soetoro's homeland is not in dispute. The FACT that BHO OFFICIALLY lived in Indonesia as an INDONESIAN CITIZEN seems to be officially ignored by the Democratic Party, the Congress, and certainly the MSM.

L to R, Lolo Soetoro, Stanley Ann Dunham Soetoro, baby Maya Soetoro, and 9 year old Barry Soetoro (AKA Barack Hussein Obama - President ? of The United States of America)

Somebody help me out here. If our Constitution states that dual citizens are not eligible to serve as President, HOW did Barry get around this little detail?

Photobucket This registration document, made available on Jan. 24, 2007, by the Fransiskus Assisi school in Jakarta, Indonesia, shows the registration of Barack Obama under the name Barry Soetoro made by his step-father, Lolo Soetoro.
Name: Barry Soetoro
Religion: Islam
Nationality: Indonesian

It was KNOWN by BOTH the Democratic and the Republican parties that this man was NOT ELIGIBLE to run for the office he now sits in; the Democrats didn't care about a little thing like legal eligibility, all they cared about was electability, and the Republicans didn't have the spine to insist on full investigation into the matter of eligibility because they were too frightened about the charges of Racism sure to follow any such demand.

The Republican's own candidate faced the same questions of eligibility and the manner in which the the two men responded demonstrates the difference between the two sides.
Faced with the question, John McCain promptly released every document he needed to to demonstrate that he was, in fact, eligible. McCain refused to make BHO's status an issue, despite the fact that the Democrats had rabidly tried to bar him (from running) by the same reasoning with far less evidence.

Barrack Hussein Obama Soetoro, on the other hand has STILL not released ANY documents to demonstrate that eligibility; indeed, he has spent over a million dollars and employed eleven separate law firms in the court fights to prevent the release of ANY of his documents.
There is no reason to take those type of actions unless there is something in those documents that would preclude this man from even running, much less holding, the Office of President.

The old adage that "where there is smoke, there is fire" would certainly seem to apply. Do we REALLY want a man in our highest Office that can't even be honest enough to stand the scrutiny required to be involved in high political office? One who by his policies has shown his disregard for the privacy of the ordinary Citizen in matters of Health-Care, Finance,Job Security; indeed, even in the types of automobiles that will be available to them; yet still insists on TOTAL privacy for himself?

I not only say no, I say HELL NO! Unless he shows us his Bona Fides; he should be impeached, at the VERY least.

The time to lock and load and join the skirmish line is drawing nigh quickly; I hope to see you beside me rather than in my gun sights, the prospect of firing upon my fellow Citizens is abhorrent to me, but less abhorrent than allowing our Republic to slide into Fascism without at least a good fight being brought against it.

Thanks for taking time to write this write-up. It's been incredibly valuable. It could not have arrive at a far better time for me!
