Nothing like grandstanding for over two
Obama Claims To Have Released His Long Form Birth
suppose that I am what is called a "Birther." --What does the name
"Birther" mean to me? It means that I do not believe that Obama is a
"Natural Born Citizen" of the U.S.A.
Considering what has
come out, the news that Obama has released what he claims to be his
"Long Form Birth Certificate," I am sure that some might wonder why
I am still saying that I don't believe he is a natural born citizen.
And such people can throw accusations at me, or they can actually
read and consider that which I have to say.
First: I do not
believe that "Natural Born Citizen" simply means that a person was
born in the U.S.A. It appears to mean more than that, or why did our
founding fathers add the word "natural," to "born citizen?" And why
did they exclude themselves from this qualification, when most of
them were simply born here, as well? Clearly there is more of a
meaning to "Natural Born Citizen" than just having been born here.
Second: It seems totally illogical that a foreigner could
come over here and father a child with an 18 year old American girl
and have that child grow up to be the president. If "Natural Born
Citizen" does not mean that both parents have to have been born here
(or at least citizens), then this means that any Mexican anchor baby
(with no American parent) could grow up and become president. That
would just be crazy. --So where is the line drawn? The line is drawn
with what our founding fathers meant. And we need to find out just
what that was.
Third: According to Attorney Philip Berg (a
democrat lawyer who wanted Hillary Clinton), Obama would be at most
a naturalized citizen, if a citizen at all, because according to one
of Obama's books, Obama went to school in Indonesia as a child, at a
time when Indonesia required citizenship and would not allow
dual-citizenship. --Hence, even if Obama was born in the U.S.A., his
parents would have had to have given up that citizenship, in order
for him to become a citizen of Indonesia. This would mean that he
would at best, have been naturalized, in order to become a U.S.
citizen when they brought him back to the U.S. And this would be
"if" his parents even did that for him.
Fourth: It is very
important that we have a president who has a loyalty to our country,
something Obama has shown not to have. Obama's "change" was not
"for" our country, but against our country. Obama did not like that
our country has been a superior nation, and he basically seeks to
bring us under a type of submission. This is clear in things that
Obama has done and said.
Now, on the topic of Obama having
shown his supposed long form birth certificate: If that is a true
form, why did he take so long to show it? Obama said, "We do not
have time for this kind of silliness." --If that is so, then why did
he take all of this time? Why did he take over two years? One source
(Yahoo) states, "Obama admitted at a White House press conference
following the document's release Wednesday morning that he's been
both amused and puzzled by the degree to which his place of birth
has become an issue." --"Amused?" That does not sound like a man who
found it to be a waste of time. To me it sounds like a man who was
trying to laugh it off, hoping it would go away. And when Donald
Trump came along, Obama saw that it was not going to just go
Fact is, if that certificate that is claimed to be his
long form birth certificate really is genuine, that means Obama has
been toying with people and having fun with this whole thing, being
"amused" with it all. So excuse me, if I don't just believe such an
arrogant man, to be telling the truth now and showing a true
Nonetheless, after all that has transpired and the
horrid way that he has "governed" this nation so far, I will not
just believe him.
And no matter what, I should not have to
count on something that a news source puts out over the airwaves. I
want my government, particularly my state to have a process by which
all candidates for the office of the presidency have to prove
qualification (whatever and all of which our founding fathers meant
such qualifications to be), in order to get put on our ballot to
begin with. And if they cannot prove qualification, they cannot get
on our ballots. It simply should never be a guessing game.
Whether Obama qualifies or not, I should not have to guess,
nor should I have to trust a news source to do the job of my elected
government. Even after Obama is out of office, I plan to keep
pushing for my state to enact a qualification law, so that this type
of "amusement" game, never happens again in our country. Some of us
take the office of the presidency seriously.
