Donald Trump is the latest high-profile name in the news to challenge Barack Obama’s place of birth and his firm decision to show no one his birth certificate. “Either he has one or he doesn’t. Where is it?” This was the blunt statement and the rhetorical question said by Trump to express just how ridiculous this birth certificate issue has become. Many view the obsession with Barack Obama’s place of birth as wasteful behavior that serves no purpose in moving this country forward. Others, as a matter of principle, are simply exhausted with frustration over the fact that this man absolutely refuses to show anyone his birth certificate. And others, yet, find great potential in keeping the accusation alive and thriving to smear Obama and to cast him in a darker, more questionable light.

Here’s where I stand. At this point, I don’t care whether Barack Obama was born in Kenya, France, Brazil, America, or anywhere else. Enough people voted to make him our president in 2008, one of which I was not, and I simply do not agree with his vision of America’s future, I don’t agree with his squishy approach to fixing our economy, I utterly oppose his health care law, and I generally find liberal, or progressive, ideas insulting to the way I define my America. Simple as that.

In the event that evidence reveals itself in the future that can conclusively prove Obama was not born in Hawaii, then that will be that and we can all move on. But in the meantime, many states have passed or are in the process of passing legislation that makes proof of birth place much more stringent for all political candidates than it previously was.

It would obviously be an unforgivable shame to vote a man or woman into the position of President of the United States of America if they were not a natural born citizen. I admit, this birth certificate issue is extremely interesting and I’ll be curious to see how it plays out, but my disapproval of Barack Obama is not built upon this fragmented argument. I simply disagree with this man to the degree that I refuse to stop running against him until the next presidential election.

Those who accuse of course have the burden of proof to deal with, but the fact that Barack Obama will not show anyone his birth certificate is absolutely ridiculous. Like Trump said, “Either he has it or he doesn’t. Where is it?”

I found an article on today, in which two resident columnists went head-to-head on the birther movement. The article has some interesting arguments on both sides. It’s worth a read. One fact I was unaware of is that Barack Obama’s social security number is traceable to Connecticut, a state in which he had never lived. As odd as that is, there is another side to it, though. The two columnists are extremely opinionated and if nothing else, it just makes you wonder, why not just show the birth certificate and end this obtrusive distraction?

1,465.6 miles to go.


  1. Here's a tomahawk of truth in the skull of lies:


  2. Whoa, Tonto. I and everyone else are well aware of Snopes and the "Certification of Birth" that has been presented by Obama. It is a form from the state of Hawaii legally claiming that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii. But he will not show his original birth certificate or a copy of it. I don't advocate the idea that Obama was born outside of America but it is in the news and I find it interesting so I posted about it. And it just keeps coming up. In November, when Obama was visiting Hawaii, Gov. Abercrombie got up on a soap box and vowed to end the birther conspiracy with indisputable evidence. A couple months later someone asked about it and all he had to say was something to the effect of "Oh, yeah, about that. Sorry, yeah, I couldn't get my hands on anything". What is that all about? And, as I stated in my post, I don't care where he is from. He is our president and we all have to accept that for now. I place no government or politican beyond reproach and there are enough compelling circumstances surrounding this issue that I am not convinced one way or the other. But I can tell you I don't care one way or the other at this point because I would rather spend my time campaigning against his ideas and actions, something tangible. I find the whole scenario and the energy so many people put into it to be interesting and I posted about the topic. If your tomahawk had been thrown harder two or three years ago then so many people would not still be talking about this.

  3. I really hope one of these retreads and blowhards runs for president, not because they have a chance of winning but because I like to see the train wreck that they will cause.

    Faux News Candidates:
    former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin ”The I graduated Early”,
    former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, R-Ga. “The I Love The Interns”,
    former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee “The Huckster Reverend”,
    former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. “The I Love the Gays”,
    former UN Ambassador John Bolton “The I Love The War ”

    I Finance Myself:
    real estate celebrity developer & 1999 US Prez. Candidate, Donald Trump, “I took my Casino into Bankruptcy, just imagine where I can Take the US”
    former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney “The Flip-Flopping Fudger”,
    former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush “The I Am Not My “Dumb Ass” Brother”,

    Employed Long Shots:
    Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn. “The History, I Don’t Need No Stink’n History”,
    Mississippi Gov./ former tobacco lobbyist, Haley Barbour “The last White Hope”

  4. If by "train wreck" you are referring to a candidate who would repeal ObamaCare and shrink our deficit, because those are two issues they will be campaigning on, then I agree. Beyond who the president will be in 2012, I am hoping that the trend we are seeing of individual states designing their own unique laws continues, avoiding the federal government's "one size fits all" interests, shrinking the power of the federal government.
    Our president and federal government wield far too much power. The federal government was designed to help individual states at times when they have difficulty helping themselves. It was not designed to force laws on states regardless of whether each state wants the law or not (ObamaCare).

  5. Most birthers really believe Obama was born in the United States but their real purpose is to confuse people.


  6. The only party that is desperate are the Republicans, but its to “kill the middle class”, they will lose!

    The current Republicans only know how to a) Start Wars not Win them (talk about know exit strategy), b) fire the middle class worker, deny them healthcare and kill unions. c) act like they are not responible for the financial collapse and the deficit, yup thats about it, and yes most of the are fat and racist.

  7. After doing some digging around about the birth certificate I came upon something interesting:,2600/
