Not true at all. Why do we still have to go through this issue? He has not. He has released a computer-produced certifcate that a birth certificate
exists. Do you get it yet? Why is this so hard to understand? Let me explain (yet again):
It WAS ONCE THE CASE many years ago when you wanted your birth certificate, you wrote to the State, paid your fee, and they looked up, physically
looked up your birth certifcate, made a photstat (an early form of photocopy) of the certificate, and someone signed an affadavit on the paper
attesting that this was the real deal. This was the original borth certificate signed by the doctor attending the birth along with information
provided, usually, by the mother. You can see the original signatures on this photstat copy.
Nowadays they DO NOT DO THAT. Why? Because it was too expensive and too slow. As state databases were created the computer took over this task. Once
the data was in the computer, all a human had to do was use a few clicks of the mouse and Voila! A computer produced certificate that a birth
certificate exists is spit out, and mailed out. It is ONE STEP REMOVED from the Real Deal, but most places requiring a birth certificate accept this
THAT'S what Obama has produced, a "certificate that a certificate exists." Now, ATS IS a conspiracy site, right??? Nobody here trusts the
government to tell the truth. Everyone believes the government is hiding stuff from us mere mortals. Everyone has a hidden motive or is controlled by
hidden powers, TPTB, the NWO, the Illuminati, etc.
Yet on this issue people just roll over and play dead.
What is so exceedingly difficult about allowing the original to be copied and faxed over the world. I can show you my original in 30 seconds. If Obama
did this, especially if he did it with grace and a grin, it would be a HUGE PR coup for him.
So what's the problem here? It would take a few minutes to solve and then be a done deal. End of story. Go away now. Egg on your faces and all
It's to his complete advantage to do it, but he won't. Why not?
