Practice What I Preach – February 25, 2009
Here is my letter to my two senators and my Congressman. (Feel free to copy and paste, if you want to use it.)
I would like to know if presidential candidates are vetted by someone in the government or by a judge or panel of judges to see if they meet the requirements of our Constitution. Our Constitutional requirements to be eligible for the presidency are there for our protection and must be adhered to, whether we have the opportunity to make history or not. No one should be sworn in unless they have met every requirement and it is a proven fact.
As you have probably guessed, I’m asking if anyone with authority has proven beyond any doubt that Pres. Obama is a natural born citizen of the U.S. My intent is not to stir up more controversy. My intent is to protect the Constitution now and for the future. One exception endangers every generation after us.
Who, in government, checks and proves the eligibility of presidential candidates? Is there proof beyond the shadow of any doubt that Pres. Obama is a natural born citizen, that his true birth certificate is authentic and unaltered and that it proves his place of birth? Has any government agent, in an effort to protect the people and uphold the Constitution, verified that Pres. Obama has never been adopted by an Indonesian step-father, and is in fact, a U.S. citizen?
Why has every law suit seeking to establish Mr. Obama’s eligibility been met with dismissal? Why do the courts “find” that those bringing the suits to prove our president’s eligibility “have no standing” and therefore dismiss the case? I especially want to know the answer to this. Please tell me why a court would not consider that any American citizen has standing to force a president to prove he is Constitutionally eligible to serve as our president? Don’t we have the Constitutional right to know that we are being governed by someone who is eligible? I believe we do.
Why has Mr. Obama sealed his records, except the certificate of birth that has the same little flaw at the top as the known forgery, which has been posted all over the internet?
Please don’t view my inquiry as that of a conspiracy nut who reads too much on the internet. I view this issue as endangering our protections under the Constitution. If one part of it is ignored and broken, and this part is quite a major one, then it sets a precedent for the future crumbling of any part of it.
Many, many people need to know that the man changing our country and our lives so profoundly is eligible to do so.
