The truth is hiding in plain sight. At some point in 2008, the political elites decided to violate the Constitution. I know of no better explanation.
In September 2008, Lawrence B. Solum, the John E. Cribbet Professor of Law at the University of Illinois College of Law, wrote:
“What was the original public meaning of the phrase that establishes the eligibility for the office of President of the United States? There is general agreement on the core of its meaning. Anyone born on American soil whose parents are citizens of the United States is a natural born citizen.”
The text of the Constitution, the intent of the Founders, judicial precedence and the historical background support that definition.
Every high school student, who paid attention in history class, knows that. Every elected President since the early days of the Republic has met that criterion. That is, every one except Barack Hussein Obama.
By his own admission, Obama is not a natural born citizen and is, therefore, not eligible to be President of the United States.
More and more Americans believe that in 2008 some Republicans and Democrats illegally circumvented the Constitutional requirement of natural born citizenship for both John McCain and Obama, choosing the phony Senate Resolution 511 to cover the former and adopting willful ignorance in the case of the latter.
Many Americans question why Obama has been using a Social Security Number issued in Connecticut, a state in which he never lived or even had a mailing address.
It is also claimed that Obama’s selective service registration form contains that Connecticut number 042-68-4425, which the Social Security Verification Systems indicate that it was never assigned to him.
An increasing number of document experts are raising questions regarding the authenticity of Obama’s recently released long form birth certificate i.e. it may be a forgery.
Despite the mounting evidence against Obama and the increasing belief among Americans that many in Congress are lying, a wall of silence persists and no official investigations are underway.
It seems that the political elites now consider themselves above the law with the power to interpret the Constitution according to their own political whims and concurrently disregard the will of the people.
That is what got King George III in trouble.
Whether through cowardice or arrogance, both Republicans and Democrats fail to appreciate the fact that ordinary Americans are reaching a tipping point. Imagine a Tea Party on steroids.
If the Constitutional crisis is not soon addressed, the present political polarization will inevitably lead to political fragmentation. Erosion of the Constitution will inevitably lead to the collapse of the rule of law.
The only way to avoid further degeneration of the US political system is for the leadership of both major parties to tell the truth. Their continuing lack of candor directly feeds the creation of the same conspiracy theories that they so often criticize.
The 2008 election scam is beginning to unravel.
When Obama’s house of cards finally falls, it will provide political theater the like of which the US has yet to see.
The political elites will be scrambling to justify their complicity, assert their ignorance or re-write their history of malfeasance.
If there are any honest politicians left in Washington, D.C., they should decide now on which side of history to stand.
Those choosing to continue the charade will be swept away in a tidal wave of voter retribution.
If the political elites now fancy themselves successful tyrants, then the words of Thomas Jefferson provide an appropriate metaphor:
“The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.”
We will be unforgiving.
