sos37....Your little diatribe of where does it stop...the slippery slope of tolerating or accomadating different cultures...pretty soon our country and culture will be overtaken by the tide of (african americans) (jews) (communists) (Irish at the last turn of the century) (germans before them in the 1800's) (chinese) ..and most recently (mexican americans) and now (muslims) ?
Our country is built on tolerance and pluralisim. We have always been the melting pot. No one culture dominates. America's strength is our diversity. Think metal alloy. That makes you and your ilk the weak point. Intolerance is a weakness. Diversity is a strength.
Your crap has been spoken over and over for a couple of hundred years by people hoping to play on fears and religious/racial intolerance to foster prejudice and ill will toward inocent people. I am really suprised by the people I see posting at ATS lately.

He could cripple our economy, our military and many other aspects of our country. He could even launch us into a nuclear war just to achieve the end result of having our country struck by another as a retaliation.

If he is truly Muslim and has been brought up in the beliefs of Muslim extremists, then it is completely possible that he has spent the last 20 odd years being purposely positioned to be exactly where he is in now.
And by electing him president, we would be handing over the entire US government and all of our military forces into the hands of someone who may very well be passing this information on to what are currently our enemies.
Now whether you agree with the war in Iraq or not. And whether you are prejudiced or not, this does not seem to be the most intelligent decision for our country while we are at war with a Muslim nation.
This could be the ultimate spy game shall we say. He could virtually cripple our country in a very sort time frame. He could cripple our economy, our military and many other aspects of our country. He could even launch us into a nuclear war just to achieve the end result of having our country struck by another as a retaliation.
This is an 'if' of course, but do we really want to take that chance. There could have been several other black candidates with less 'iffy' back grounds that probably had even more experience than Barack. Why him?
This man is living the American Dream, where anyone who is a natural citizen can become President of the United States of America.
The question should be "Why not him?" The fact that you present the arguments you have done leads me to think that in your eye, because of his race or his supposed, and completely unproven religious belief, that he is inferior in some way.
And that kind of thinking is a stain on everything modern day America is supposed to stand for.

According to the state laws in Hawaii that were in effect at the time of Obama’s birth, a child must be born to “TWO” U.S. Citizen parents (this law was in effect from “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986,“ which means it applies to Barack’s birth.
OK, let's say he was brought up as a Muslim as a child. What's the problem with that? Is there some law in the US that states that everyone wanting to be president HAS to be Catholic from childhood? Or some other religion?
Or are you inferring something with the whole Muslim thing?

While most educated people are well aware that Islam is not synonymous with terrorism, it doesn't change the public perception that it is. Having a name one letter off of America's Most Wanted, and having the middle name of a recent executed dictator, isn't exactly helping...
Are the voting public of the USA really so fickle? Has it really come to that level of shallowness?
