Your assertion is even more incredulous than any birther fantasy.<quoted text>
The birthers actually helped Obama by their radicalism. They made themselves easy targets. Sometimes I wonder if it was a false flag operation
From up here and across the border, the whole Constitutional thing appears to be so ridiculous, outdated and passé.
Indeed, a person born in a country other than the USA, let's say, June 30 and moving to the USA July 01 with his new parents, becoming a U.S. citizen along with his parents after 3 years' residence, having lived in the United States all his/her life except for the 1st day, having perhaps served in the armed forces, clean record, productive citizen, honest, good family person, IS NOT ELIGIBLE to run for the presidency? Has someone lost it? Yet, another dishonest lying shiftless person, solely because said person was born on U.S. soil from U.S. parents is perfectly eligible? I repeat, has someone lost it?
That Constitutional exigency may have been logical and even prudent in the 19th century when the Republic was in its infancy and loyalty of non-natural-born citizens may have cast doubts, but here we are in 2014 and this silly rule still applies? Same for the 2nd amendment. Made sense when it was enacted, as the newly-born U.S. was still menaced, is a farce today, specially when one reads about the "militia". Typical NRA gun owners don't even know what "militia" means,much less be part of one. Get rid of those stupid dépassé obsolete rules.
