Nothing like grandstanding for over two years -
                Obama Claims To Have Released His Long Form Birth Certificate

I 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 away.

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 document.

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.
