Today I Cried for America

I am almost overcome with grief today.  My sense of loss and frustration has caused a tightening in my chest, a lump in my throat, and yes, at times tears in my eyes.  I grieve for the loss of a dear friend: the Constitution of the United States of America.

People do not really think about what that document is.  We glibly talk about the Constitution as if it were just some historical document that a bunch of guys wrote a long time ago.  It is not.  “Constitution” is not a noun; it is a verb.  It is the document by which this Nation was constituted or created.  It lays out in fairly plain English how our country was supposed to be set up and run.  It gives guidelines by which our Founding Fathers intended the country to be run.  It recognizes problems with an unjust government that they had just spent years getting rid of.  They wanted to protect this new country from the corruption they had labored under for most of their lives.

I will freely admit to being conservative.  I will proudly and vehemently argue my views with anyone willing to put forth an opposing viewpoint, and even agree to disagree if they feel as strongly about their beliefs as I feel about mine.  I have very good friends who hold diametrically opposed views on many issues, and we have enjoyed many hours of debate.  I believe very strongly in the original ideals and purposes of our Constitution, but I will not fault another person for interpreting it in a way different from my own.

But this is different.  This is not someone’s differing opinion, or a different way of interpreting what the Constitution means.  There is no way to spin this particular issue.  This is a fundamental.  You cannot misinterpret the plain and clear language in Section II of Article I which provides the requirements for becoming President of the United States of America.  Those requirements are not at all stringent or burdensome.  There is nothing that says the President must have any particular level of education.  It does not require any specific experience or social status.  It makes no provision for race, religion, or even character.  It does, however, place three very specific and very clear restrictions on eligibility for the Office:

1) No Person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President;

2) neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty five Years, and

3) been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

I will address these in reverse order.  I think we can all agree that Barack Obama has lived in the U.S. for fourteen years.  There is ample evidence of this fact, and I am sure he supplied the proper documentation.

I think we can all also agree that Mr. Obama is old enough.

What we cannot verify, however, is requirement number one.  They thought it important enough to put it first.  A “natural born Citizen.”  That means born here.  Not born somewhere else and brought here, but actually born on U.S. soil.  There are many claims that Barack was actually born in Kenya, not Honolullu as he claims.  It may seem like a very minor point, but since both of his parents were not U.S. citizens, this is a big deal.

If he was actually born in Kenya, Barack Hussein Obama is not eligible to be President!

The documents Barack supplied do not prove where he was born.  He has failed to respond to petitions and public demand that he produce definitive proof of his birthplace.  He has just ignored the issue, obviously hoping it would go away.  That disregard for the Citizens of this country and its laws sickens me.  This issue should be easy to solve.  Just supply the proper documentation and it goes away.

In my opinion, if he could supply proof, he would.  That means he knows he is not eligible, and has taken office illegally.  Or maybe the dog ate it.

I have my issues with his policies, but this has nothing to do with that.  This is strictly about our Constitution being blatantly ignored and trodden upon.  I cannot believe that more people are not offended by this.  This country is now under the leadership of an usurper.

Today the Constitution of the United States of America was destroyed to the delight of millions.  We embraced the very corruption our founding fathers fought against, and tried to protect us from.

We failed miserably to uphold the values and freedoms they tried to provide for us, all because we did not hold one man accountable for getting his paperwork turned in.

If Mr. Barack Obama cannot properly submit a birth certificate, how can I believe in his ability to lead this country?  We have allowed a man to take the most important job on Earth, and he cannot turn in his homework on time.

And that is why I cried for my country today.

    Q&A:

    Who was the 44th President of the USA?

    ANSWER:

    Joe Biden.

    He was the Acting President for at least 5 minutes under either the Constitution’s Article 2 or the Constitution’s 20th Amendment, from 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, having already taken his Oath of Office and before Obama completed his ‘oath’ at approximately 12:05 PM, 1/20/09. Under the 20th Amendment if the President-elect shall have failed to qualify, or alternatively under Article 2 if the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term, being 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, which ability and/or qualification includes that he take the Article 2 oath “before he enter on the execution of his office,” then either the Presidency shall devolve on the Vice President under Article 2 or the Vice President shall act as President under the 20th Amendment.

    Here’s why this may be significant. If a subsequent Supreme Court ruling disqualifies Obama as not being an Article 2 “natural born citizen”, Biden’s automatic succession to the Presidency could be predicated upon either and/or both having been Vice President under Article 2 or, if that be deemed problematic because Obama’s unlawful Presidency is nullified, Vice President-elect under the 20th Amendment.

    WOW! I knew that had been an issue but the media just dropped it. I thought it had been resolved. That is absolutely crazy. Thanks for bringing this back up.

  4. Mark Slay says:

    It doesn’t really matter where he was born. I too love the constitution and this now opens the “door” for people like Arnold Scwartzenegger to be President which I would hardily approve. Another reason OBAMA will be unsuccessful and replaced in four years is the “Congress” runs this country along with the Fortune 500 companies listed in Forbes magazine not the President. If you don’t believe that look at the cooperation between Wall Street and Pennsylvania Avenue and all the bailouts, they BOTH guilty as sin in almost bringing this economy to it’s proverbial “knees” and no one, especially Congress is doing a thing about it! We the People is just a metaphor and doesn’t mean anything anymore unless it is for electing a man born quite possibly in Kenya!

  5. Betty says:

    That was very touching, however, before you embarass yourself further in actual conversation with another living breathin human being I have a suggestion for you: Go back and read the first eligibility requirement you stated. There you will find the word “or”. “Or” means that the former or latter pieces of a statement surrounding the word “or” could be held true, OR, that they may hold equal weight. 1) No Person except a natural born Citizen, OR a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President. Barack Obama is indeed a citizen of these United States, and you are a sorry sad little person that needs to get over it and be happy.

  6. Admin says:

    Betty:
    The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787. Are you seriously suggesting that Barack Obama was a Citizen of the United States on that date?

    You highlight the entire problem. I have read the Constitution, and every amendment, several times through my life. I have also read numerous books and other resources about WHY it was written as it was. There have been numerous Supreme Court lawsuits in our history about the term “natural born Citizen” as opposed to “naturalized Citizen” or just “Citizen”. Our Constitution, as it stands now, plainly states “natural born Citizen”.
    You prove your ignorance of our history and our laws by your comment. You are willing to ignore the Constitution, to throw out over two hundred years of precedent, to ignore the very foundation of our Nation.
    Why? Why are you willing to make an exception for this one man? Why should he be the one person not required to submit the proper paperwork?
    Yes, I am a sorry, sad little person. Sorry that people like you are not willing to hold leaders to a higher standard. Sad that our entire political machine allowed my Constitution to be trampled. And yes, I’m just one little guy in a great big Nation.
    But I refuse to “get over” the fact that the man in the Oval Office has not proven his eligibility to be there.

  7. Admin says:

    Mark:
    I will agree that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a better candidate than most of the ones we have had to choose from for the last twenty years or more. There are many great people who were not born here who I would vote for in a heartbeat.
    However, we cannot allow the Constitution to be changed by fiat on a whim. I might support an Amendment allowing a naturalized Citizen to be President; I don’t know without further thought on the matter. But I cannot support simply ignoring the existing requirement.
    Barack Obama should either supply the necessary documentation if he can, or he should be removed as ineligible. You can’t convince me that with the resources at his disposal he can’t lay his hands on his Birth Certificate. He just doesn’t want to.

  8. Ted says:

    Take the test.

    FIRST QUESTION: Who IS the actual and lawful 44th President of the USA?

    ANSWER: Joe Biden

    Biden was initially the Acting President for at least 5 minutes under either the Constitution’s Article 2 or the Constitution’s 20th Amendment, from 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, having already taken his Oath of Office and before Obama completed his ‘oath’ at approximately 12:05 PM, 1/20/09. Under the 20th Amendment if the President-elect shall have failed to qualify, or alternatively under Article 2 if the President is unable to discharge the powers and duties, at the time fixed for the beginning of the term, being 12:00 Noon 1/20/09, which ability and/or qualification includes that he take the Article 2 oath “before he enter on the execution of his office,” then either the Presidency shall devolve on the Vice President under Article 2 or the Vice President shall act as President under the 20th Amendment. (The importance of the oath in ‘commencing’ an ‘Obama Presidency’ — rather than merely the 1/20/09 Noon time — is confirmed by the re-take of the ‘oath’ by Obama at the White House on 1/21/09 after the first ‘oath’ was NOT administered by Justice Roberts NOR recited by Obama in the words as required under Article 2.)

    This is significant because at such time that the Supreme Court finally rules on the merits on Obama’s disqualification as not being an Article 2 “natural born citizen” (clearly he is NOT), Biden’s automatic status (without needing to take a separate Presidential Oath) of being President would be predicated upon four different bases: First, having been Vice President under Article 2; second, having been Vice President-elect under the 20th Amendment; third, having been actual President in the hiatus before Obama took the ‘oath(s)’; and fourth, retroactively deemed President during the full period of the Obama usurpation so that the acts of the Federal Government under the usurpation can be deemed authorized and/or ratified by Biden’s legitimacy.

    SECOND QUESTION: Who will be the 45th President?

    ANSWER: Hillary Clinton

    One must assume that Bill and Hillary Clinton have been aware of all of the above. Biden’s wife recently “let the cat out of the bag” on the Oprah Show that both Biden and Hillary had considered alternatively Veep or Secretary of State, in either case, setting up Hillary to be President on a vote of the Democratic Congress if need be.

    THIRD QUESTION: Is Obama an unwitting victim of this troika or a knowing participant?

    ANSWER: Yet undetermined.

    Admin – you recited to Betty, “The United States Constitution was adopted on September 17, 1787. Are you seriously suggesting that Barack Obama was a Citizen of the United States on that date? My question to you is are you seriuosly suggesting that the last 10 or 15 presidents were born on September 17, 1787?

    • Admin says:

      No. And if you paid any attention at all you would not ask that question. READ the requirements. READ my commentary.

      Wake up!

      They WERE born IN THIS COUNTRY and THEY PROVED IT. There was no question of where they were born. They supplied the appropriate documentation.

      Barack Obama refuses to supply a legal birth certificate proving his birth location.

      Why?

      I assert that he has allowed the specter of doubt to cloud his eligibility for no good reason. I assert that if he were capable of providing the legal documentation, he would have. If he is incapable of providing the proper documentation, he is ineligible to hold the office. This is not opinion. This is the law. It could not have been written any more clearly.
