This is the first time (I think) that I’ve ever addressed the Obama birth certificate issue in a public manner. I’ve never personally felt the urge to make my thoughts known on the issue, but I get COUNTLESS emails on the subject and felt it finally warranted a response.
It’s the question asked, disputed, “debunked” and yes… still in many ways unanswered… where is Barack Obama’s official birth certificate?
Donald Trump is making a lot of waves as of late due to his uncanny ability to grab headlines combined with his constant mention of Obama’s birth certificate. Or, rather, depending on your view of the scenario… a lack there of.
I view the “birtherism” realm a bit differently than most. I personally have not seen enough evidence to, without a doubt, prove the story in one way or another. So I’m not a “all in” believer that Barack Obama was born outside of America.
Put me in the group called “why would a sitting American President even allow the question to still exist?”
First, let me state that I think it’s a travesty to see so many in our movement insulted, mocked and discredited for asking questions about the birth certificate. I especially find it disturbing that beltway organizations (conservative) have in many cases cast out those who have questions on the subject. Even some tea party organizations tow the establishment line by refusing to allow members to openly ask the question in a calm and inquisitive manner.
Not only is it natural for Americans to question our leaders… it’s our duty. If you’re one who believes someone is “crazy” or “nutty” for asking a legitimate question, you’re playing against our instinct as born and raised Americans.

The reason I see the birth certificate as a serious issue is because if in the off chance it is true, and whether you like it or not… there is a possibility that it is, it would be the greatest political con in the History of America. With this in mind, until it is proven without a doubt to be false, it is our duty to seek the truth.
Many patriots are indeed doing this and they should not be rebuked for it. You may or may not agree with it, but you shouldn’t look down on anyone for choosing a path you have not.
Now, let’s look at the evidence. The claim that Obama is an American born in Hawaii and a copy of his birth certificate is widely available is easily up for dispute.
If you read this post, for example, you’ll find significant evidence to counter the certificate claim. In fact, evidence seen in the post is in no shortage and readily available.
Keep in mind the following:
-Barack Obama has, on several occasions, failed to keep his word. In fact, you could easily argue he looks right into the camera and lies.
-Barack Obama’s 2008 campaign was run by professional AstroTurf consultants. See here and here.
-Obama and his team of Chicago AstroTurf professional were working towards the most powerful office in the world… President of the United States of America.
If you didn’t read the link I posted about the “picture” of the “certificate,” read it now. It’s worth the read, even if you do not believe there is possibility of something fishy going on.
Think about it… through political kick backs, contracts, jobs and influence, these guys running Obama’s machine are dealing with hundreds of millions of dollars. And they got where they are through tricking people into doing something they didn’t really need to do.
Knowing this, wouldn’t you agree that if a stumbling block appeared in their path to power… they would do anything necessary to remove it? To think otherwise would be incredibly naive.
To back up a bit… let me say again that I do not fully believe one way or another. But there is an element to all of this that I find very troubling. My question isn’t just “why won’t you just end all of this and take a team of bloggers, voters, reporters, etc into the Hawaii public office and have your actual birth record observed?” when it comes to this issue.
My questions goes a bit deeper. As in, what kind of individual gets elected as President of the most powerful country in the world, then toys with Americans asking questions about his birth certificate? And worse, what kind of people sit in TV studios of “authentic media outlets,” mocking those who ask the real questions? What does it say about our Congress and Intelligence agencies that none are willing to end it all by providing an indisputable answer to the simple questions being asked?
Americans have every right to ask this question of our President. If our President doesn’t think it legitimate to be asked, and doesn’t go to every length possible to answer the question, my assertion is that he is not fit to be President of this great nation.
For me personally, it’s less about the document and more about the man behind it.
So, that’s my two on the issue. What are your thoughts?
