    No poll?

    If this is by a showing of raised hands, then yes: he's a citizen. Birthers are batshit.

    /edit: I voted/

    This is going to get kicked to the Politics forum.

    And yes, he's a natural born citizen of the USA.

    Yes.

    Is there any reason not to believe so?

    I think I'm a citizen.......though I was too young to remember the circumstances of my birth. I could have been born anywhere.....BUT, Obama was born in Hawaii and lived there until the age of six when he moved to Indonesia. He lived there until the age of 10 when he returned to Hawaii and remained there until his high school graduation.

    VB: You know very well that Trinity will never admit outright to voting "no". Trinity's slippery, chicken-shit line is: "I never said Obama wasn't born in the United States! What I said was that there were sufficient questions raised as to warrant investigation."


    And then she'll give you a new round of birther links from dubious souces.

    Trinity boxes herself into corners all the time with conflicting links and disreputable websites.... but she'll SAY that there were "valid questions raised". She'll pretend to take the "high ground". That's her m.o.

    Whoa, when did the question become his citizenship status? That's not of much interest.

    The question is, is The Won above the law, or not?

    If he's not above the law, then the legal requirements as set out in the Constitution apply. Unfortunately, nobody alive today knows exactly what the text means. "Natural born" is obviously subject to some leeway in interpretation.

    There is some reason to suspect that the requirement was put in by enemies of Alexander Hamilton, who was born in the West Indies. But, cryptic or not, the requirement remains in the Constitution, and so is the Law of the Land, unless of course the candidate is above such mundane things.

    And no, I'm not the "no" vote. I have no idea if he's a citizen, or if he meets the Constitutional requirements. And until solid documentation appears, there's no way most of us can know one way or another. Anything else is a statement of faith, not fact.

    You didn't include the "Mars" option. Obama is from Mars.

    According to 4chan, Obama's Italian:biggrin1::tongue:

    EDIT: Later in the thread, there was another post ending 08 that said Rigel 9. So he's Either Italian or Rigelian, I suppose.

    As I type this comment the results so far are:


    Yes: 32

    No: 3

    Undecided: 1


    Now, we all know that there's a 10% lunatic fringe in any given political party. So this poll seems just about right.

    (lunatic fringe: you know who you are. If you checked off "No", you're very likely to believe that Obama was educated in a radical madrassa, that Sarah Palin still has a shot at the 2012 election, and that Dick Cheney has your best interests at heart)

    Then you're a retard. The highest authority governing the vital records of the state he was born in has gone on record more than once affirming the authenticity and validity of Obama's birth documentation. If the legal consequence of that proclamation within our system of rule escapes you, then you are, in fact, retarded.

    As of now there are 4 No and 2 Undecided people in the poll results.
    Are you people out of your fucking mind?

    His momma was a white girl born in KANSAS, who was presumably a citizen, unless the birthers want to say she renounced her citizenship to the USA before Obama was born. And going futher both his grandparents were presumably citizens giving his mother citizenship.

    If you don't know the law there are 2 ways of US citizenship; by birth and by choice (naturalization).

    If you're a US citizen and you don't know that you really DO need to move out of my country, cuz you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground.:biggrin1: (I don't claim to know everything but that's one of the most basic things a citizen should know.) I'll grant you an exception if medically diagnosed as mentally handicapped, and a citizen; but I digress.

    So if Obama's mother was a citizen then her children would be citizens. Regardless if the father was a sperm donor or a Martian.

    People aren't referring to Wikipedia. They're referring Dr. Chiyome Fukino. (I believe that's the person's name.) Dr. Fukino is the highest authority on this matter in the state of Hawai'i. Dr. Fukino has come out on multiple occasions and verified that the birth records in possession by the State of Hawai'i are indeed valid and prove Obama was born in the US. If you don't think someone in a position such as Dr. Fukino is honest or trustworthy, that is your issue, and your refusal to believe what has been said by a credible source reflects badly only upon yourself.
