I've been following this situation for quite some time now, and must believe the old saw "Where there's smoke, there's fire." There have been numerous lawsuits filed in various Federal Courts, , including one by a former Pennsylvania State Attorney General, claiming that Barack Hussein Obama is not a native-born American citizen. What does that mean in practical terms?
It means that if he is allowed to take office before providing proof of his eligibility, he may have violated the Constitution, which requires that the Office of the President be filled only by native-born Americans. Technically, if he is not truly an American citizen by birth, he cannot even run for the office, much less be elected to it! Such evidence has been requested several times over the past 6 months, but Obama has steadfastly refused to provide any official documentation. If he has nothing to hide, then why hide it? There are also questions surrounding many of his unidentified campaign contributors ... those of the non-American variety, living outside the fifty United States.
Suppose Obama isn't a native-born American, and is therefore disqualified from the election. What would that mean in practical terms? It's never happened before in the history of the United States, so I'm not certain. Would Joe Biden become President? He wasn't the one elected, and Obama isn't incapacitated or unable to fulfill the duties of the office. Obama wasn't eligible for the office in the first place! Would John McCain become President? No - even though he had the next highest number of votes for that office. The Constitution hands the office to the Vice President.
On a different level, what would Obama being declared ineligible mean in social and emotional terms? Nationwide social unrest would begin at the moment of the announcement, followed immediately - if not simultaneously - by coast-to-coast race riots. Black Americans would "know" intuitively that it was "just another way for Whitey to keep the black man down." And, would such a belief be difficult to understand? Not at all, given the history of the treatment of the black race, not just in the USA, but around the world. Anybody should be able to understand their disappointment and disillusionment at such a situation. But understanding won't absolve them of their responsibility to obey the laws prohibiting behaviors that jeopardize the lives and property of others.
Perhaps, even though Obama may not be qualified for the office on several levels, the thing to do is ignore the Constitution! Congress does it all the time for lesser reasons, why not do it to insure the public safety? Or ignore it at least until the liberals and Muslims have the opportunity to impose Sharia Law.
I could be wrong ... but I'm NOT! BIDEN IN '09!
