"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; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States."
(American Constitution, Article 2 section 1)
The mainstream media has kept silent about this issue, but if Barack Obama is elected in twenty days, the USA may be facing a constitutional crisis.
The Founding Fathers gathered to write the Constitution during the Philadelphia Convention in 1787.
And in a time of severe economic crisis, not to say "recession" this is a situation that the country obviously cannot afford.
America needs a strong leader : a man or a woman who does not divide the country as George Bush.
America needs a reconciliation if it wants to meet the challenges of the 21st century, if it wants to recover from troubled times, abroad and at home.
How could Barack Obama play this role of a leader, of a uniter whereas an important part of the population rejects him as unqualified to be president ?
And, above all, how could Barack Obama become the leader of the free world while he has been cheating on his birth, and nobody knows so far if he meets the requirements to be elected president ?
The Constitution is clear : a candidate must be "natural-born" in order to be eligible.
However, more and more evidence shows Obama is not an American citizen.
There is a pending lawsuit in U.S. District Court of Pennsylvania against Barack Obama, the Democratic National Committee and the Federal Election Commission regarding Obama's citizenship. Philip Berg, a former general attorney, is at the origin of this lawsuit.
This suit, filed prior to the Democratic National Convention contends that even if Obama was born in the U.S., his citizenship was renounced and he became a citizen of Indonesia when his mother married Lolo Soetoro.
It also alleges his status changed when his Indonesian father acknowledged him as his child. Dual citizenship was not allowed in Indonesia at the time, according to the suit.
The Obama campaign's only answer so far is the so-called “Obama birth certificate” that was posted on the “Fight the Smears.com” website.
But it is clear this document is a fraud. Several published examinations of the document against a bona fide Certificate of Birth from Hawaii have been released that clearly show it is not a true or certified copy (see our previous posts about it in August).
Until now, neither Obama nor the DNC provided the court with the documentation proving his citizenship.
He could have had this lawsuit dismissed months ago, unless there is some credence to it.
It is a real problem, a constitutional one.
All American citizens have the right to know Obama's legal status before casting their votes.
In any country, there are rules, laws, a Constitution to respect.
Nobody is above the law, and there is no exception.
Or at least, there should be no exception.
But the media's darling is an exception. From the start he has been an exception.
He has been allowed to do anything he wants, without being criticized, without being questioned.
Nevertheless, American citizens are wise.
They know that they cannot elect a man who is not a natural born citizen.
As it is becoming more and more obvious that Obama is not going to produce the documents, voters are going to wonder why ...
If he were honest, why would Obama fail to answer ?
Is it not normal for his fellow-citizens to be sure he is eligible before voting for him ?
He and his party should have been in a hurry to reassure voters...
Now the decision belongs to federal trial Judge Surrick. He will have to decide if the suit has “standing” to proceed or will be thrown out for lack of it.
If the case is not examined before the election, if there is no decision from the judge, I think voters are left with an only choice, now that Hillary is out of the race : they must vote for John McCain.
