I hold US citizenship, did not vote in the last presidential election for either parties, and frankly, I have to say that
***I do not care one bit if Obama was born in Kenya.***
Looking at his astrology, which is my field, I can well believe that he was born in Mombasa as the time supplied (7:23 p.m, some say 7:21 p.m.) which
maybe looks more like his character. But I will research this, as there is a difference in Oriental astrology between the two births (the one in
Hawaii and the same time in Mombasa).
That is the only reason I would even consider reading this. I do not know enough about forensic verification of foreign records. From my point of
view, the legal rule that says a US president must be born on US soil (if indeed that is the correct interpretation of the law at all) misses the
point. It is clearly outdated. And most people who invest a lot of time in birther issues are clearly opposed to either Obama's policies which are
not always in line with the right-wing ideology, or indeed his African origins.
The value of a president is not where he was born, regardless of the letter of the law in effect at present. Most democratic or constitutional
republics do not even have such a law. They demand residency and citizenship mainly to prove that the person stands for issues and knows about them.
Clearly Mr. Obama is such a person, whether or not you like his policies.
Why I had to state that? I do not have contenpt of all laws or the Constitution. I simply had had enough of the neo-liberals before to be glad to have
Obama, especially since Bush Jr. - who was BTW not voted into office, but ruled into power by the Supreme Court with the disregard of lots of existing
votes for Gore (by the pals of his dad), which is without precedent in US history.
That 2000 "election" to me already screwed up the remainder of the seeming legality of the US system of presidential elections. Not to speak about
the fact that Bush enacted retroactive laws, like the one to reactivate student loans that had been already legally been defunct way before his
Or, what about enforcing scores of treaties with American Indian nations that have clearly been violated by the US over the past few centuries?
Human problems cannot always be solved by the letter of the law.
