I have no idea where Obama was born. But if he’s not a “natural born citizen” then according to the Constitution he’s ineligible to assume the presidency. Other than that, I don’t have a whole lot to add to the conversation at this time.
Will be interesting to see what the SCOTUS does with it. If they take the case and discover that he’s not a natural born citizen then they should declare him ineligible and call for a new election. If they discover that he’s not a natural born citizen but do nothing, then it’s up to We the People. If he proves to the court’s satisfaction that he is a natural born citizen then that’s the end of it.
Thank you, Jim.
I hope you are feeling better these days. You should live to 100 plus years. Long live the FreeRepublic. ;-)
If Obama is found to be ineligible then I suggest that there are plenty of Constitutional provisions in place through the 20th and 25th Amendments to deal with it. I don't know of anything that would allow for a new election.
If they discover that hes not a natural born citizen but do nothing, then its up to We the People.
I just don't see that happening because I don't see men like Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, Justice Scalia, or Chief Justice Roberts remaining quiet in the face of a blatant unconstitutional act. If it is proven that Obama is not a natural born citizen then I think the Supreme Court says so, regardless of the consequences. And Obama is removed.
But if hes not a natural born citizen then according to the Constitution hes ineligible to assume the presidency.... Will be interesting to see what the SCOTUS does with it.
***This issue has attracted about 25 trolls on little jeremiah’s list, several who openly admit to being provocateurs. Does that match your vision of defending the constitution?
If they take the case and discover that hes not a natural born citizen then they should declare him ineligible and call for a new election.
***Calling for a new election wouldn’t be constitutional. The 20th amendment calls out the constitutional process if the PE fails to qualify.
20th Amendment Sct3: “if the President elect shall have failed to qualify”
