You have to show a Birth Certificate to get a drivers license, but we will over look it to be the leader of the free world. Brilliant.:(

Under the control of the inner, dark world of corruption, isn't it amazing what America has become. Looking back, how patriotic and innocent it was to stand and say the pledge to our flag every morning in the lower grades of public schools. Now, I'll bet they don't even know The Pledge Of Allegiance. This is why I will "NEVER" vote for the likes of Obama or the witch Clinton, birth certicate or not!

it is very disturbing to me that the governor of tn would say that someone that is going to lead this great country of ours that it isn't important for them to show a birth certificate in that case anybody from around the world could be in the role as president God help us, if this is the mindset of public officials where did love of country go?
