    Not saying this is the case but just hypothetical, if we found out that Barack Obama was actually not born in the U.S. but say Indonesia, would folks still vote for him? I'm curious to hear from the Democrat and Independent voices out there.

    Shit no.
    Though I don't think people who are born in other countries can run for the presidency. Can they? Or maybe they just can't run if they aren't born American citizens. I guess a citizen can be born in another country.

    But the huge monster in the corner with Obama is he's being duplicitous about his birth and place of origin, when most likely there's no cause for it at all except he's just a duplicitous lying sack of communist crap.

    No, you can't be President in the U.S. if you were born in another country.

    If you kept up with the speculation out there, there are some that suggest Obama was not born in the U.S.. That being simply because there hasn't been a significant amount of evidence to show he was truly born in the U.S.

    So my question is, if he wasn't born in the U.S., would people care? Assuming you could still vote for the guy as President, would that sway Dems or Independents one way or the other?

    You said "hypothetical". Then answered your own question to Allie's post.
    He could NOT be president if he was not born in the US!

    So again, I ask ... what's the point in asking this?

    Hypothetical is the key. Its a hypothetical question, if you could vote for him, regardless of whether he was born in the U.S. or not, would you?

    Currently we do have a law that doesn't permit us to have a presidential candidate that is born outside of the U.S. regardless if they are an American citizen or not. If say a year into Obama's presidential term, we find out he wasn't born in the U.S., would you be bothered by that? Would you want to change the law to allow American citizens to be President, regardless if they were born in the U.S.?

    I'd still vote for him. McCain wasn't born in the U.S. either.
