Minuteman PAC warns of imperial presidency…
An influential Minuteman PAC is weighing in on the argument over Barack Obama’s eligibility to be president, with a call for concerned citizens across the country to flood their state secretaries of state offices with requests that Obama be removed from the 2012 ballot.
There have been dozens of leaders, politicians and personalities who have expressed concern that Obama likely does not meet the constitutional requirement of being a “natural born citizen” to be president.
The Founders likely understood that to mean the offspring of two citizen parents and an 1875 Supreme Court decision suggested the same. But Obama, by his own admission, could not qualify under those circumstances because his father never was an American.
In a new statement released by the Minuteman Pac, officials there said, “Obama needs every vote he can get in 2012 – if we can get just one state to remove his name from its ballot, he does not stand a chance.
“To do this, though, we need tens of thousands of messages overwhelming the offices of every single secretary of state, since they are the ones who are ultimately responsible for determining who qualifies to be on the ballot – and, of course, who doesn’t,” the organization’s statement said.
“As our Founding Fathers intended, it is the states which protect us from all out tyranny. The federal election in 2012 and the constitutional eligibility of the candidates is no different. In the end, our states are responsible for ensuring the eligibility of candidates and our states will protect us from the tyranny of a presidential usurper.”
The organization noted the defense strategy that Obama’s lawyers outlined in a pending case in Georgia, where this week there are to be three hearings on different challenges to Obama’s name on the 2012 ballot in Georgia.
The law in that state allows residents to raise a challenge, and several groups already have.
Obama’s lawyer told the judge the president should be excused from a subpoena for his testimony and birth evidence, but the judge refused.
It was Obama’s lawyer who argued because Obama was chosen by the presidential electors and confirmed by Congress, the testimony he’s being told to provide is “irrelevant.”
“You read that right, folks,” the Minuteman PAC said. “Obama’s dream-team of lawyers are arguing that, because of the electoral system, Barack Hussein Obama is not accountable to the American people.”…..
