OK this ain't about the birther bill as it is about new and exciting possibilities of state governments getting more control over the presidency. The constitution says that the state legislature may choose any manor of selection for the electors of the electorial college for the president on the United States. This is the legal justification for the Arizona birther bill because each state picks the method in which the electors are to be chosen. All states have chosen a democratic method of direct voting but what if each state started to put conditions on which they will release the electors such as being a natural born citizen, not signing unbalanced budgets into law, not going to war without consent of congress, etc, etc, etc, and more etc. Every president and canidate will then have to meet these conditions that that state legislature picks in order get that state's electorial college votes. This will put a huge restraint on the president of the United States because if a state the size of California decided not to release the electors on the issue of the president signing an unbalanced budget then that president will always sign a balanced budget for fear of not getting the biggest state in the union electorial votes.
