The best way to prevent a person from becoming a dictator is to not put him into a position in which he could become one. Our Founding Fathers put this requirement in the Constitution: Article II, Section 1, Paragraph 5 states: “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 the 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.”
According to the Constitution and our Founding Fathers, because Barack Obama’s father was a Kenyan citizen and not an American citizen at the time of Barack’s birth, Barack is not eligible to be President. Supposedly, Obama was an expert on the Constitution. Yet he ran for President anyways. He knew that he had one big advantage over Chester A. Arthur, our other ineligible person to be declared the President; and it was his skin color. Who was going to attack the first black President for being ineligible for the Presidency? Screams of racism would fill the land. That would mean if I accused a person of committing a federal crime like dodging the draft (which Clinton did), or any other federal crime, I would be a racist. Al Capone committed the federal crime of tax evasion. Would I be considered a racist to support his imprisonment at Alcatraz? Of course not. The same should apply to Obama’s illegal act of considering himself eligible to be President. Not all blacks are federal criminals like all those accusing me of being a racist must think. Now that would be true racism.
The Constitution and Obama’s ineligibility to be President, according to that document, is a clear reason to remove him from the White House. Surprisingly, even Conservatives don’t use that as a reason to do so. There are many other ways to remove Obama from office. Impeachment is a popular and potentially effective way to remove him from office. It requires timing. If Obama is hated more in 2014 prior to the election in November, the impeachment hearings could be held in September or October, when Democrats are eyeing their defeat, and we might have a better chance of throwing him out of office. With the accusation that Obama was illegally declared President, Democrats may be desperate to remain in office and dump Obama. But since they have supported Obama before he was illegally elected, they should be thrown out too.
A charge against Obama that is an easy one to make is perjury. He said he would support and defend the Constitution. But he has caused a less perfect union, established injustice, has destroyed domestic tranquility, removed money and support for the common defense of this nation, made the general welfare of the nation worse, and made our liberty less secure now and into the future. He also violated Article I, Section 1, Paragraph 1 of the Constitution, which states that all legislative powers are granted only to Congress. Only Congress can change a law once it is adopted. Obama has done so often with the Affordable Care Act. He has also tried to work around Congress whenever possible.
