Skip to comments.AMENDING THE NATURAL BORN CITIZEN REQUIREMENT: GLOBALIZATION AS THE IMPETUS AND THE OBSTACLE
Posted on 11/28/2008 2:40:28 PM PST by SatinDoll
The natural born citizen requirement in Article II of the United States Constitution has been called the stupidest provision in the Constitution,1 undecidedly unAmerican,2 blatantly discriminatory,3 and the Constitutions worst provision.4 ...
The natural born citizen clause of the United States Constitution should be repealed for numerous reasons. Limiting presidential eligibility to natural born citizens discriminates against naturalized citizens, is out-dated and undemocratic, and incorrectly assumes that birthplace is a proxy for loyalty. The increased globalization of the world continues to make each of these reasons more persuasive...the natural born citizen clause has increasingly become out of place in the American legal system. However, even though globalization strengthens the case for a Constitutional amendment, many Americans argue against abolishing the requirement.

"Although some of the reasons for maintaining the natural born citizen requirement are rational, many of the reasons are based primarily on emotion. Therefore, although globalization is one impetus that should drive Americans to rely on reason and amend the Constitution, this paper argues that common perceptions about globalization ironically will convince Americans to rely on emotion and oppose a Constitutional amendment."
Sarah P. Herlihy is employed by Kirkland & Ellis LLP http://www.kirkland.com . Note: this law firm is based in Chicago. Bruce I. Ettelson, P.C., is a Member of the finance committees for both U.S. Senators Barack Obama and Richard Durbin.
It now appears that the One World Order proponents behind Barack H. Obama have been working on this issue for a few years. They intend to thoroughly trash our Constitution and destroy the United States of America.
For a complete look at the document go to the above listed source URL. This is truly frightening.
Only traitors to the Framers intent would call this a stupid provision. Blind fools or worse.
Exactly. But these are the very people - Durbin & Obama - who are actively asserting amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.
Of course now it is a bad thing, cuz someone who fits the description has been elected.
Sounds like somebody’s gettin nervous.

Sure hope the Supremes ghave heard of this document and are aware of the age of it and it’s origins.
Oh my.....chills up my spine.
This document along with a brief, clear explanation should be circulated widely.
I see no reason for the conservative talkers to hold back now. The plan has been in place for some time.
CITE: 10 USC Sec. 502 01/03/95 EXPCITE: TITLE 10 - ARMED FORCES Subtitle A - General Military Law PART II - PERSONNEL CHAPTER 31 - ENLISTMENTS HEAD Sec. 502. Enlistment oath: who may administer STATUTE Each person enlisting in an armed force shall take the following oath: ''I, _ _ _ _ _ _ _ __, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God!" ------------------- This oath may be taken before any commissioned officer of any armed force.
The oath refers to a valid President of the United States that meets constitutional requirements.
Of course they vehemently opposed any change when it looked like Arnold was a possible viable national candidate.
What interests me is the immigrant governor of California, Arnie the DEM, suggested it be changed...before Obama came on the scene.
I’m beginning to think that Chicago is the root of all evil.
The most patriotic naturalized citizen...the late, great Balint Vaszonyi, was for keeping this provision.
Another good sign: my Obama loving friend has asked me to stop send her political e-mail. PS: she usually initiates the exchange and then when I respond she can't answer and gets mad.
The scenario I envisioned goes something like this.
Zero gets himself elected. (done) After taking office it’s proven that he’s ineligible to hold that office leading to a major fight in congress. The democrats refuse to remove him but fail to get a constitutional convention. The issue is left unresolved. By 2016 another foreign born presidential hopeful shows up at the supreme court demanding their “right” to run and citing the Obama presidency as a precedent set and showing that “no harm was done”.
I suspect the next foreign wannabe will be someone easily acceptable like a Canadian. (Jenny Granholm seems to be getting groomed for that job now) Next it will be a Mexican candidate and by then the free for all will be well underway.
I’m beginning to very seriously think that 0bama is NOT a natural born citizen, and that the libs have known it and started preparing for an amendment to the Constitution years ago. NO AMENDMENT!
Thanks. I was just about to ping you and a few others. We need to get out the alarm that this nation is under seige.
This is extremely upsetting. Up to now I have been deeply troubled but now I’m really damned angry. Mostly at how thoroughly this whole setup has developed.
McCain would have been no better. He was born in Colon, Panama. This stinks to heaven of George Soros.
I’m a lot more concerned about Jenny Granholm. It looks to me like she’s being groomed for bigger and better things. At least Arnie was up front and honest about his wishes.
