    Kudos for Arizona leading the way. Now Georgia will introduce legislation to make a Presidential candidate prove they are a Natural Born Citizen by showing certified documents. Other states that are introducing Bills are Florida, Oklahoma, New Hampshire, New York, and South Carolina which will propose requirements to ensure presidential eligibility requirements are validated prior to being placed on the ballot. This is about insuring that the Constitutional guidelines are met and that the presidential candidate is not a Citizen or Naturalized Citizen but only a Natural Born Citizen that meets Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5 to be President:

    No person except a natural born Citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President; neither shall any Person be eligible to that Office who shall not have attained to the Age of thirty-five Years, and been fourteen Years a Resident within the United States.

    THE PEACH STATE FOLLOWS ARIZONA’S LEAD IN REQUIRING ELIGIBILITY PROOF FOR PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES

    Apr. 24, 2010) — Georgia Representative Mark Hatfield has introduced into the state legislature House Bill 1516, which would require proof of eligibility in order for presidential candidates’ names to be placed on the state ballot for future elections.

    A poll taken by CBS/New York Times shows that only 58% of those asked think Obama was born in the United States. Hatfield has stated that Americans have a right to know if the leader of their country is eligible to serve in that position.

    This is GREAT for conservatives and republicans (and teabaggers, too)

    since any document presented by any democrat or liberal will be dismissed as "a fake!"

    and ONLY documents presented by conservatives will be accepted....


    no democrat or liberal wil ever be able to run again!

    ever!

    Are you suggesting that only Conservatives are legally here as natural born citizens?

    Really? Why is that? That sounds like more partisan hackery to me, pure unadultrated bullshit!

    I would offer the opinion that the "birther" controversy has been detrimental for the president, and for the country. If it is required up front that the candidate provides the documentation of eligibility, there will not be another "birther" issue in the future.
    How is that bad? How does that translate into; "no democrat or liberal will ever be able to run again!"?

    My understanding is that our current president has provided documentation of his eligibility and won't be affected by these state laws in any way other than putting another piece of paper in the file.

    The only way that; "no democrat or liberal will ever be able to run again!" becomes true is if the dems or liberals try to enter an unqualified candidate into the race.

    Oh, and i corrected your spelling of "wil" to will.

    Love it..


    Let those states publicly declare themselves to be birthers. It does not legitimize the birthers but delegitimizes those states

    How does it delegitimze the state to preempt any future birther claims?

    So when a state passes legislation that will uphold the law, they become "deligitimized".

    got it.

    Got one!

    Which birther claims? Obama presented his qualifications to be President, they were certified by the State of Hawaii as official. There is no controversey except in the feeble minds of birthers

    And the states which placate them

    Of course not.

    But conservatives believe any right wing weird ass lie, not matter how far out and bizarre. So I can't speak for them.
