Game-changer! Arizona to pass 2012 eligibility law
WND ^ | January 25, 2011 | Bob Unruh

Posted on 01/25/2011 5:15:38 PM PST by RobinMasters

It could be a game-changer.

A plan in Arizona to require presidential candidates to prove their eligibility to occupy the Oval Office is approaching critical mass, even though it has just been introduced.

The proposal from state Rep. Judy Burges, who carried a similar plan that fell short last year only because of political maneuvering, was introduced yesterday with 16 members of the state Senate as co-sponsors.

It needs only 16 votes in the Senate to pass.

In the House, there are 25 co-sponsors, with the need for only 31 votes for passage, and Burges told WND that there were several chamber members who confirmed they support the plan and will vote for it, but simply didn't wish to be listed as co-sponsors.

Every state should pass such a law...but it will only take one in 57 to keep this clown out of office next election.

Its a start. I’d love to see Florida, New York, Texas, do the same thing.

Very interesting.

Puts O in a legal box. Produce, or fight it, and if he fights it, no more than 30% of voters nationwide would believe it was for “the principle.”

This needs to happen in a swing state: Missouri, Colorado, Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, NM, FL, or Ohio. Then it’s a game changer.

Obama will write off AZ’s electoral votes before he coughs up the truth about his birth certificate, whatever that is.

It will, of course, be challenged in the courts. But since states control who appear on their ballots then there is no reason why the law shouldn’t be upheld.

It's almost beyond belief that it would have gotten to the point where a state would need to do this, considering that the primary role, the reason for being, of the federal executive branch is to enforce the laws already written - which eligibility to hold command of the highest executive office also is, in the Constitution. Remember that? What a clown show.

If this law is going to be effective, it will have to define what a Natural born citizen is so that the law is clear on what has to be proven by US presidential candidates to get on the ballot in Arizona and what counts as sufficient evidence for that purpose. Otherwise the liberal courts will just redefine what an NBC is and use judicial activism to put ineligible candidates on the ballot anyway. Does anyone know if this proposed bill clearly defines what Arizona considers an NBC to be?

It wouldn’t matter if this passed in a 3EV State. If Bambi writes off a State (any State) that passes such a law, he is exposing himself as a fraud to the entire country.

As soon as one state passes a presidential eligibility ballot bill, other states will do the same. It will be monkey see monkey do. :-)

Hello Mr. Zot. If you are lurking like Obots do, Obama ain’t got a snow ball in hell’s chance if this bill is in effect for 2012 to get on the AZ presidential ballot. It sure looks certain that it will pass into law.

Nada, zippo, goodbye, it’s over, see yooooo, 1 and done for Obama.

Not only would the AZ law require a long form to be filed...but also would require the candidate to prove they are a "Natural Born Citizen" as prescribed by AII,S1...AND that the candidate has not held duel or multiple citizenship's!

Brilliant!

The other states submitting similar eligibility bills need to pay attention to this. They need to require more than a long form b.c. They need the candidate to prove they meet the actual requirement of NBC (& age and residency).

Obama has made a mockery of our constitution. He’s about to get a big slap in the face. Some state will pass this. And if they don’t, they are going to see thousands of law suits.

Maybe Obama will Rahm-ify it by timing the challenges such that his name will appear on the ballots when they are printed? If so, more states are needed. Obama's projected duplicity would show when more than one state's ballot printing were to become Rahm-ified in this manner.

I wouldn't be surprised if Obama, or whatever his real name is, all of a sudden announces he will not run for President again because he has become the head of the UN or some world important position. Either that or his operatives will have him offed to make him into a martyr and further their cause. They could even fake his death and change his appearance if they wanted to be nice. Or they could fake his death and have him "raise from the dead" as to make him a god as it is prophesied about the antiChrist. Or it is possible that the his fall from becoming President the second time because he is not a natural born citizen can be considered politically to be wounded to death and he will go to Europe and rise from the political ashes and yet become the antiChrist. Not much would surprise me at this point as these people are not ordinary politicians and should not be analyzed as such.

Rev 13:3 And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death; and his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.

And if they do, they are going to see law suits from Holer and company just like AZ SB-1070.
