What matters to me
By Armand C. Hale

The birth certificate. This one piece of paper is issued at birth which then allows to be issued a social security number taking one's place in American society. Together, this will I identify one as an American citizen. With these two pieces of paper, you can enroll in school, get a driver's license, get a marriage license and run for political office. At least you would think so. But with the current so-called president it seems to not matter...not to the congress, the judicial system, or the average American citizen.

Our constitution was written to ensure that only a natural born America citizen could be elected and ascend to highest office on the nation. By his own admission in rhetoric and writing, his father was from Kenya...subject to British Law. Which does not allow the off-spring to be considered a natural-born citizen of the classified as a foreigner and not allowed to fill the chair. Our constitution was written to prevent a foreigner from running this country.

However, every court has turned down the argument he doesn't meet this requirement...his lawyers argue the birth certificate doesn't matter...the incumbent himself shrugs it off as not important even though the certificate produced for the media has so many errors, it can only be judged as not real...something like his ability to be president. But what is infuriating, it does matters to me as an American citizen, as a voter and as a taxpayer. It should matter to every natural born American citizen who believes in and respects the constitution. This foreigner should not be allowed to continue to hold the seat. The amercian people should not bow to the "it doesn't matter" mentality this administration has taken as they continue to distract the citizens

Send a message and take back the people-elected chair. Don't let yourself be swayed by an administration that shrugs its shoulders at constitutionally based law and send the foreigner packing. (JMJ)
