AMERICANS SHOULD ASK THEMSELVES THAT SINCE MOST OF THEIR FOREFATHERS WERE NOT BORN IN AMERICA AFTER THE INSTITUTION OF THE AMERICAN REPUBLIC , LIKE AFRICAN AMERICANS LATIN AMERICANS ,THEY ARE NOT AMERICANS…. RACISM IS RAISING ITS UGLY HEAD IN AMERICA AS THE BIRTHER MOVEMENT RISES IN POWER.
It has been reported that the Arizona Governor Brewer vetoed the Birther Bill that was to make candidates give their birth certificates to certify whether they were born in America. This arose due to questions concerning President Obama ‘s origin.
The fact of the matter is this issue will split America into two. This is because the Birther Movement, though their intentions look right , will definitely be hijacked by White Supremacists and Racists.
So despite the claim of seeking the truth about Obama’s American stake , it will end up dividing America.
Actually America is just taking the same route Africa takes when voting in politics:TRIBAL =RACIST.Majority vote their leaders on the basis of ethnicity.
So campaigns about birthplace and tribes are common like the sun here in Africa.
THE OBAMA ISSUE, THE TRUMP CARD.
Now Donald Trump who supported Obama is now against him …anyone with sense can see there is something wrong with that picture .Trump is seeing that the issue is good enough to divide America for the rich elites own agenda.Yet you find truth seekers rallying with such rich men who have caused the economy of the world to collapse.
TRump is art of the game to hoodwink and divide the masses and distract them from the real issue plaguing America and the world.IT is a game they are playing both sides of the divide Democrat of Republican , birther or anti birther especially when you see the rich siding with the Birthers
ARE BIRTHERS SHOOTING THEMSELVES IN THE FOOT ?
Practically majority of Americans both white and black are just like Obama ..their parents were immigrants .Now to say one’ parents are not immigrant enough therefore not American enough is to shoot all those Americans on the face.
Besides African Americans are not natural born per se because they have a place of origin, Africa.BUt they are Americans because they have been born and live there.
America is a queer nation …none can claim ownership of it except the Red Indians .They are the only natural born citizens because they lived on that land for years .The rest are immigrants .
Yet the Red Indians are not saying anything , it is the immigrants who are talking .
My take is that America is headed for one big fat racial war that will not fail to be recorded in practically any history book in the world.
‘Birther bill’ vetoed by Arizona governor
CNN) — Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer vetoed a bill late Monday that would have required President Barack Obama and other presidential candidates to prove they were American citizens, born in the United States, before their names could have been placed on the state ballot.
The so-called “birther bill” got final approval in the state House last week. Now that Brewer, a Republican, has vetoed it, the bill will not become law unless legislators vote to override her veto.
“As a former Secretary of State, I do not support designating one person as a gatekeeper to the ballot for a candidate, which could lead to arbitrary or politically-motivated decisions,” the governor wrote in a letter addressed to the Arizona House speaker.
Under the measure, if there were any dispute about whether a candidate had proved he or she had been born in the United States, Arizona’s secretary of state would have the final say.
“This measure creates significant new problems while failing to do anything constructive for Arizona,” she added.
Explain it to me: ‘Birthers’
Obama has been hounded by allegations since he began running for president in 2008 that he was not born in America. Critics contend, among other things, that he was born in his father’s home country of Kenya. The U.S. Constitution stipulates that only “natural born” citizens are eligible to be president.
Obama has insisted that he was born in Hawaii, and the allegations against him have been repeatedly discredited in investigations by CNN and other organizations. Nevertheless, the issue remains politically potent among segments of the electorate and has served as a rallying cry for many of the president’s opponents, most recently potential GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump.
The author of the so-called “birther bill,” Arizona State Rep. Carl Seel, has said the bill was not targeted at Obama, but at “maintaining the integrity of the Constitution.”
Among other things, a candidate would have to show a copy of his or her birth certificate. If a birth certificate couldn’t be produced, a candidate would have to show a combination of baptismal or circumcision records, hospital birth files, postpartum medical records or other documents. Candidates also would have to submit affidavits declaring their citizenship as well as sworn statements regarding their residency for the previous 14 years.
“I never imagined being presented with a bill that could require candidates for President of the greatest and most powerful nation on earth to submit their ‘early baptismal or circumcision certificates’ among other records to the Arizona Secretary of State. This is a bridge too far,” wrote Brewer.
Fourteen other states are considering similar legislation this year, according to Jennie Bowser, a senior fellow with the National Conference of State Legislatures. Measures have failed in three states — Connecticut, Maine and Montana.
In an effort to counter the charges of the birthers, Obama’s 2008 campaign produced a “certification of live birth,” a document traditionally accepted legally as confirmation of a birth.
Both the current Hawaii governor, Neil Abercrombie, a Democrat, and the previous governor, Linda Lingle, a Republican, have insisted that Obama was born in their home state.
Nearly 75% of Americans believe Obama was definitely or probably born in the United States, according to a March 11-13 CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll. More than four in 10 Republicans, however, believe the president probably or definitely was not born in America
