A very well reasoned position!
To which, I would add;
Who in their right mind, with the law on their side, would not spend $20 for a legal copy of a birth certificate, versus hundreds of thousands to lawyers to not reveal their birth certificate??
(Guilty your honor!)
Hey, if I were running for President, I'd take the news crews and cameras down to the County Recorder's Office, order and pay for my (long form) birth certificate, and hold it up for them and all for the world to see.
