The discussions of Obama’s citizenship have taken place almost from the beginning of Obama’s announcing his intention to run for the office of President of the United States of America to the present – and should have started when he ran for the Senate to begin with. They have been both controversial and informative for all who really pay attention to this issue, no matter what side you may be on.
I believe the Constitution lays out what legally qualifies any citizen for running for the office, as well as the offices of the Senate and House. The rules, in this matter, have been allowed to become virtually non-essential, as elected officials and leadership in both parties avoid the issue – bowing to political correctness – except for occasional lip service.
The Constitution addresses the qualifications for running for the offices of President, Senate and House in Articles I and II of our Constitution, and, I might add, are very clear on this issue. I believe it leaves no room for any of us to interpret it in any other manner than written.
My advisors have told me that even in the elections of 2008, a man by the name of Roger Calero, a Nicaraguan Citizen had his name on 5 states’ ballots for President. Please, Google this info for yourself. Also, just recently the FEC gave permission for another non-citizen to raise funds to run for President. These practices by both our federal and state governments are completely irresponsible, not to mention illegal and unconstitutional. Have any of them actually read the Constitution?
I’ll give you another example of the lack of discipline in this matter. When I went to the Secretary of State’s Office in Arizona, they never asked me – and probably no one else running – for any proof of citizenship, even though I’m running for the US Senate. I have to believe this applied to all others who’ve gotten the paperwork from them as well. They talk about voter fraud, how about the fraud of running for office without proof of citizenship, Secretary Bennett? What about the other 49 states and the provinces?
If the states would simply be a qualifier of all who seek to run before issuing paperwork, this issue would be moot. The legislators of all states need to address this issue. They have the obligation to do so, as they’re the ones who provide and collect the paperwork and run the election process within their borders. A solid way of proving this may be to use the certificate with the Raised Seal on it, as this is what we must do in proving we have degrees. Hopefully, if we apply this to the process, it will assure its authenticity. Then, if challenged, we have the proof we need, and can avoid frivolous accusations as well.
I believe we must pass legislation at both state and federal level, requiring anyone running for a federal office to prove their citizenship before allowing them to run. This Political Correctness, or Fear, as I call it, has done our country far too much damage and must be stopped NOW.
I ask all who read this to join with me and begin to ask their elected state and federal officials to pass legislation to address this matter, by simply making all who intend to run for such offices to first prove their citizenship with a Valid Birth Certificate, showing both their birth place and the proof of the parents’ place of birth as well. This, I believe, will settle this issue once and for all, and will make it very clear that if the governor vetoes such legislation, WE THE PEOPLE will petition for Recall, since we know that most of our elected officials don’t have the courage to impeach.
We know that when a president dies in office, others are in line to replace them. We need to know for certain that all those in the line of succession are truly qualified to be there, and must be able to prove their TRUE RIGHT to hold that office, whether by succession or appointment. Those who do not qualify for the presidency because of citizenship should be skipped, and the next in line takes office. In the 70s, when Vice President, Spiro Agnew resigned, Richard Nixon appointed Gerald Ford, who became president when Nixon resigned. Then Ford appointed Rockefeller to the office of vice president. This was the first time we had a president and vice president who had not been elected by the voters. So history proves it can happen. It could again. We must fix this now.
The next time you hear any elected official – federal, state, county, city, township, school board or political leader, etc. – address this issue at a meeting or any other function, stand up and ask them if they’re actively pursuing this issue themselves, or is this just more “please the crowd” talk. We’ve all had enough of the lip service – at least I’m certain those who support me have. We must become better listeners, and not be afraid to ask tough questions of candidates, office holders and their “people.” Otherwise, we take the chance of being lied to once again, and then who looks like the Fool?
