The GOP also needs to make major gains at the state level so the states can pass laws that require any presidential candidate to prove their citizenship before appearing on a ballot and laws that would block any form of health insurance mandate passed by Congress.
These state laws would be permanent poison pills preventing further mischief from Washington on health care mandates and the Democrats running other possibly Constitutionally unqualified presidential candidates.
This would force Obama to face an ugly choice in 2012; reveal what’s really on his birth certificate or not run. He and his minions will of course mount massive legal challenges, which will draw a huge amount of attention and even people who don’t follow politics closely will ask “why doesn’t he just release the birth certificate?”.
Interesting... Perry might just promise to do something like that, but Obama would probably just ignore Texas. But boy, if someone in Michigan or Pennsylvania did something like that. Even Virginia. I’d better get on McDonnell’s case.
