I'm not talking about Obama. What I'm saying is that IF the governor had signed this bill into law, it would have prevented future candidates BORN IN ARIZONA from being a presidential candidate on the AZ ballot. Because AZ doesn't issue the "long form" that SB2177 calls for.

Seems like most people are thinking only Obama has to present his long form, but EVERY candidate, including Donald Trump, Sarah Palin, Ron Paul or Michele Bachmann would have to present a LONG FORM. There's a REALLY good chance that some of them don't have a long form.

That's not how it works here. You make a claim, YOU provide the source. Did you notice how other people's posts have lots of source material with links and stuff? That's because we're making claims. You want people to believe you, YOU post the proof. It's not our job to prove you wrong or right.

I suggest re-reading page 4. I provided more than enough sources and links. It is YOU who choose what to read/believe. ( yeah, see how i did that )

The above quote suggests that your stating that the bill is asking for a specific format. According to HB 2177, they are simply suggesting that the Constitution be followed. Is that to much to ask? that the constitution be followed as it was written? ...

I think you attempted to make an argument of the " format", but clearly that is not the case.
I didn’t ‘attempt’ to make an argument, I made an argument, and you’re certainly free to find it unpersuasive. But this is what I asked you:

How is specifically requesting a “long form birth certificate” that includes the “signatures of any witnesses in attendance” not “looking for a particular format”?

Do you contest that the bill, in subsection B(1), asks for a “long form birth certificate” that “includes at least” the “signatures of any witnesses in attendance”?

Regarding your points about the bill ensuring “that the constitution be followed as it was written,” it seems to me the Constitution requires a person to be a natural born citizen, not that he or she is required to have witnesses in attendance of the birth, or to have a document with the signatures of those witnesses. Nor does the Constitution require someone to have a “long form birth certificate,” or a “baptismal or circumcision certificate.”

The relevant clause in Article II Section 1 stipulates, inter alia, that for someone to be eligible to the office of President he or she must be a natural born citizen and be at least 35 years of age. A short form birth certificate, that includes place and date of birth, is sufficient for these conditions. As is a US passport. Why aren’t these acceptable documents under the Arizona bill?

But, ultimately, why is only a long form birth certificate an acceptable document to ensure “that the constitution be followed as it was written”? You haven’t explained this.

But none of your sources address this claim:

i see what your saying. I obviously misunderstood what your were trying to depict. I agree with your second to last paragraph were you covered the legal documents as written in the constitution. I thought you were trying to argue that, that shouldnt be followed.

apologies

Oh, for Christ's sake!! That is not the snopes website. That's a post from a discussion forum with a member called "snopes". The snopes website looks like this: www.snopes.com...

Here's the page from that discussion board.

Beware of YouTube videos.

truther357’s post here is quite frankly unacceptable by ATS’ standards and the Terms & Conditions.

It’s one thing to have a difference of opinion, it’s another thing to indiscriminately label and attack people with ad hominems, while simultaneously linking to misleading information.

I know this is the “US Political Madness” forum, but I’m pretty sure the rules still apply here.

I read the actual page on the message board. I don't need to see the propaganda in the video to know what's going on. Here are some other quotes from member 'snopes' in that thread.

A triple redundancy!

- snopes




As Stephen Colbert said, Obama "was supported by Ted Kennedy, who is Catholic, and the Catholic Church is led by a Pope who was in the Hitler Youth, [so] that can mean only one thing: OBAMA LOVES HITLER!"

- snopes


Later on in the thread, he becomes serious.



I've been using a "Certificate of Live Birth" my whole life. Despite what the conspiracy loons claim, it's a perfectly legally acceptable document for obtaining driver's licenses, passports, Social Security numbers, etc.




But even if that were the case, the certificate of live birth would not state his birthplace to be Hawaii, as it does. The long form birth certificate might have more information than the certificate of live birth, but it won't have contradictory information, since the latter is based on data taken from the former.

So because his views differ from yours, now you cry foul? Not a fan of opposing opinions I see.

My post is elucidative enough on why I find that member’s post to be unacceptable. I, respectfully, submit to you that perhaps you should read my post again. Also, you and me had opposing opinions earlier, did we not? Did I label or attack you? Did you?

If you still believe my comment was because I’m “not a fan of opposing opinions,” then there’s nothing more I can do, seeing as I can’t, and won’t, be more explicit on why object to that member’s post, and for believing the reasons were already self-evident.

There is more than enough proof of his birth certificate and even pictures of it, just not with the state seal on it because it is a copy.


Folks, if his birth certificate were really false, this would have come out a long time ago (and with PROOF). I don't like the guy, and I didn't vote for him, but I have to have enough faith in the vetting system to at least assume that the parties would be damn sure their candidates meet the Constitutional requirements for office.

Another matter may be dual citizenship. To my knowledge, I'm not sure if it's even addressed by the law. In my mind (and I'm sure our founding fathers'), you should be a citizen of the US and ONLY the US, to be President.

I believe the only thing the Constitution says is "natural born", but technically, a child of two parents (who are not US Citizens) could be born here, and that child could be President? The child would (by most nations) have dual citizenship. What about McCain? He was born in the Panama Canal area...so technically, was he even eligible to run? I never really looked into it much, but it's curious.

Herbert Hoover had a Canadian-born mother. Woodrow Wilson's mother was English. Chester Arthur and James Buchanan both had Irish fathers. Thomas Jefferson's mother was born in England, and Andrew Jackson's parents were both born in Ireland.

He was born in Panama, Father stationed in the Panama canal zone.
A law was passed to afford children born to US citizens citizenship while working in the Canal Zone. The law did not specify "natural born" status.
The two big issues are that the Hospital he was born at was outside the Panama Canal zone and that the law regarding newborn citizenship was passed after he was born with no indication of it being retroactive.

Congress passed a resolution declaring him a "Natural Born Citizen"...ironically it was sponsored by Hillary Clinton and Sen. Obama


That is the short of it...links and details available on one of the recent birther threads.

Posts like this honestly confuse me. You are either proudly waving your "I am stupid flag" or the "I lie for fun" flag.

Either one is just robbing yourself of self respect and dignity. It just seems so self-abusive it confuses me.

I am open to being wrong...please provide some evidence that the State of Hawaii does not accept COLBs as proof of citizenship.
