I know that you failed to find anything to prove your argument. Its not in the constitution nor among the federal laws to state the citizenship of
both parents in the case of children born on soil. You cant find anything so naturally you move on with another argument.
why don't you start proving something
I dont have to. Obama merely proving sufficiently his birth right is enough by all accounts for him to be eligible. The campaign ended, his satisfied
what was required to prove his eligibility, his not obligated to prove anything further.
In reference to the constitution it clearly does not
state that the individual of interest has to show their extended for of birth certificate
(long form) neither does it state the individual has to satisfy the entire population of these United states (if it did we would never get to electing
The constitution clearly states:
According to the court, the Constitution vests Congress -- no individual voters, or even opposing candidates -- with the final authority re: the
qualifications of the Presidency.:
Article II prescribes that each state shall appoint, in the manner directed by the state’s legislature, the number of presidential electors to which
it is constitutionally entitled. The Twelfth Amendment prescribes the manner in which the electors appointed by the states shall in turn elect the
“[t]he electors shall meet in their respective states and vote by ballot for President and Vice-President . . . and they shall . . . transmit
[their votes] sealed to the seat of the government of the United States, directed to the President of the Senate; — The President of the Senate
shall, in the presence of the Senate and House of Representatives, open all the certificates and the votes shall then be counted.”
Congress did confirm so along with the electoral college:
In addition the state of Hawaii further confirms Obamas eligibility:
In addition his short form birth certificate is sufficient evidence of birth for the state of Hawaii, which was verified by the state of Hawaii
itself, including the Hawaiian health officials:
To verify we did indeed have the correct document, we contacted the Hawaii Department of Health, which maintains such records.
"It's a valid Hawaii state birth certificate," spokesman Janice Okubo said June 13, 2008.
Fukino yesterday issued a statement saying that she and the registrar of vital statistics personally inspected Obama's birth certificate and
found it to be valid.
Birth certificates as defined:
Birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth and Certifications of Live Birth) and Certificates of Hawaiian Birth are the primary
documents used to determine native Hawaiian qualification.
The Department of Hawaiian Home Lands accepts both Certificates of Live Birth (original birth certificate) and Certifications of Live Birth because
they are official government records documenting an individual’s birth. The Certificate of Live Birth generally has more information which is
useful for genealogical purposes as compared to the Certification of Live Birth which is a computer-generated printout that provides specific details
of a person’s birth. Although original birth certificates (Certificates of Live Birth) are preferred for their greater detail, the State
Department of Health (DOH) no longer issues Certificates of Live Birth. When a request is made for a copy of a birth certificate, the DOH issues a
Certification of Live Birth.
You may not accept it as sufficient enough however you do not dictate the laws of the land.
if he has a long form
Uh I dont care what he has. As far as Im concerned his finished running for president and has satisfied sufficiently his birth right. His not
obligated to do anything further, especially for a bunch of whining rightwingers who hate the man for a list of reasons.
