Buffalohair, Is Barack Obama Really an American? The $64 Question

Is Barack Obama Really an American? The $64 Question

Barack Hussein Obama, Barry Sotoro, or what ever, has been in a heated battle with birthers since he first ran for president of the United States of America. Well now he’s been president for 2 years and the controversy rages on but is it a valid point to reconnoiter? This is a free country and it is everyone’s right to ask and explore any question or issue they choose. For whatever its worth I think this is all nothing more than a distraction since this argument is not going any further than gathering support money for a mot point and nothing will come of it. Surely there are more pressing issues to contend with in this age of chaos. 

There are a myriad of reasons why I believe Barack Hussein Obama is American but I’ll just give you an overview. The family tree on his mothers (Stanley Ann Dunham) side reads more like a “who is who” in US history. I am not a particular fan of Barack’s policies at times but I think he is as American as George Washington, or was he British? I found that his bloodline runs blue and pierces deep into the rich and tumultuous history of Ireland and England. Gads, he is related to all kinds of historic dudes throughout the ages. The Dunham family is immersed in history with quite a pedigree indeed. As for his dad, he was simply a young idealist from Kenya with some provocative liaisons with questionable political underpinnings. I don’t think Barack was being indoctrinated into communism when he visited with his dad for the only month they ever shared. I bet he wanted to get acquainted with the father he never knew and had a millions questions and issues to work out. I don’t buy into the various renditions of how he grew up that popped up recently, including his latest version though. His childhood was more a tragic journey and not the smoking gun of conspiracy people are looking for. Ole Arnold Schwarzenegger Kennedy was Austrian born and yet he was allowed to plunge California into economic chaos. Dare we mention the political affiliations his family enjoined in the past or is that different?

Constitution of the United States of America: Article Two, Clause 5
“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.”

Since I live by this document I must stand by Barack Obama on this issue since he is an American, lock stock and tomahawk. I may have some issues with our president but his lineage is not one of them. But I do have some issues with this part of his contract with America, his oath of office.

“I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will faithfully execute the Office of President of the United States, and will to the best of my Ability, preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

To preserve, protect and defend Constitution of the United States, hmm. He is not the first president in recent years to sidestep the most important document in the United States of America either. This document has been pushed, tweaked and molded to fit the needs of previous presidents and their corporate constituents to such a degree it is all but unrecognizable, their interpretation that is. Sounds like religion because it is being used for geopolitical purposes rather than what it was intended for. Barack is a constitutional attorney so it’s not like he does not know the law of the land yet he continues down the path of unconstitutional lawlessness with legislation totally contrary to the Constitution of the United States of America and that is a slight problem eh. As usual we’ve taken the path of least resistance and allow our politicians to boldly violate the core tenets of this country. Use it or loose it and from all indicators we have lost it. Soon democracy will fade from existence as austerity becomes the catchword for the loss of national sovereignty but at least we got a birth certificate out of the deal.
