I believe Obama is an American citizen. His mother is an American, therefore, he is an American. When the birther movement was just beginning, I too thought that it was a bunch of conspiracy nuts. But being that it seemed to tick off liberals and democrats, I teasingly went along with it as a ruse to flamebait and aggravate liberals. I would challenge liberals to provide proof that the short form birth certificate was not a forgery, just to irk them. To my surprise, despite repeated dares, none ever took me up on the challenge. I didn't know if they were incompetent or lazy, but the libs could not provide proof the document was valid. This got me curious, so I decided to start looking into it myself, to play Devil's advocate, so that I could prove that the birthers were in fact a bunch of crazies. But the more I looked into it, trying to find evidence that the short form birth certificate was real, I found more and more proof that it was in fact a fake. But I, like many others, found there were more important issues to debate. So, who cares about the SFBC? Then the White House released the long form birth certificate. I immediately gave credence to the document and settled into the fact that the White House had finally done what it should have done years earlier, just to put the issue to rest. Instead, the birther movement gained new life as it was once again proven that the long form birth certificate was also a fraud. I do know that the reason people suspect that Obama is a fraud is because he has twice released documents purported to be his birth certificates which upon examination are obvious frauds. Perhaps if he would allow just one actual skeptic, a journalist and a document expert examine the documents, he could put it to rest. But he won't. Why, because they are frauds. Every document expert who has taken a look at the documents released by the White House have came to the same conclusion. It's a fraud. So, if any of you can prove that either birth certificate is real, please, I challenge you to do so. I swear, I have tried, as a Devil's advocate to prove that both of the birth certificates are real, and have failed on both counts. I have looked for one expert that will say that the Obama birth certificates are real. No document examiners have ever been given access to either document. [video=youtube;cv19avtHVcc]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cv19avtHVcc[/video] You can find multiple experts on the internet demonstrating why the documents are frauds, I have not seen any expert testify to the fact that they are authentic. In none of the legal challenges, has Obama ever been forced to produce or willing to produce a valid birth certificate. I don't know what is going on here, or what they are trying to hide, but something is indeed going on. I don't know if they are trying to hide the fact that Barack is not his father, or who his real father is, or if they are trying to hide his college records, was he affirmative action student, was a foreign student, I don't know? http://www.teapartytribune.com/2012...ation-of-obamas-ineligibility-damage-control/ So I know you are already going to respond by calling us racists, but what you will not respond with is expert testimony from a certified document examiner that the birth certificates are real. Go ahead, make my day.
