FINAL POINT — The issues that many wish to keep out of view in regards to the whole Birthers enablers and conspiracists comes down to a question of is it policy or pigment. None of the individuals who are either enablers or apart of the conspiracy will be honest enough to give life to this question, because it brings to light a truth and reality that is undoubtedly at the heart of all of this when compared to other Presidents and Presidential Candidates.
Since this was brought up during the 2008 Presidential Election season lets take a look at the birth places of the candidates on both sides.2008 Democratic Party Presidential Candidates:
- Barack Obama, 08/04/1961 – Honolulu, HI, USA
- Joe Biden, 11/20/1942 – Scranton, PA, USA
- Hillary Clinton, 10/26/1947 – Chicago, IL, USA
- John Edwards, 06/10/1953 – Seneca, SC, USA
- Bill Richardson, 11/15/1947 – Pasadena, CA, USA

- Mike Gravel, 05/13/1930 – Springfield, MA, USA
- Christopher Dodd, 05/27/1944 – Willimantic, CT, USA

- Tommy Thompson, 11/19/1941 – Elroy, WI, USA
Now of course there are some constitutional scholars that will say that McCain is still an American citizen because it was a US Naval Installation Base, but I guess being born in Panama makes you more of an American than being born in Hawaii or is there another reason behind this? I think it’s simple, but let’s continue.
I want to make this easy for the Birthers so… (cue the music) One of these candidates is doing his own thing, one of these countries are not the same? One of these candidates is doing his own thing, now is time to play our game; it’s time to play our game. If that wasn’t elementary enough why don’t we try singing “Who Are the People in Your Neighborhood”?
Seriously, this has got to be one of the most obvious and ridiculous things one group has ever done despite the facts presented. What is even more amazing is why only Republican members of Congress are coming out to support this.
Do you really want to alienate any person who isn’t White from the GOP? You’ve already pushed Blacks away, Arab Americans, Muslims and now Latinos. Seriously, you’ve got to addressed this cultural aversion you have and do it quickly, before it’s really too late. You’re pushing everyone away; even moderate Republicans, truly the only ones with common sense. You won’t even listen to them. You can’t deny that the GOP has a really, really, really bad problem with racial, cultural, religious and ethnic inclusion. This latest crisis isn’t helping resolve those issues. You can get mad at me if you like. I’ve offered my advice many times and decided that it was useless. A Democrat can have compassion for a conservative. I just hate to see you do this to yourself.
Now come the rumors about Barack Obama’s birthplace that he was really born in his father’s native Kenya, so like Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, who was born in Austria, he can’t become a U.S. president. Wouldn’t the same rule would apply as for McCain. Obama’s mother was an American? If it’s about policy and not pigment? Be honest.
Now I know many of the Birther Conspiracy Theorists have lost their grip of logic and reality, but I believe the enablers haven’t. So I am directing this to the Republican members of Congress who I believe are not lost their grip on fact, logic and reality.
So I ask the question to the Republicans in Congress who co-sponsored the Birther Bill: Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Dan Burton (R-IN), Bill Posey (R-FL), John Culberson (R-TX), Bob Goodlatte (R-VA), Randy Neugebauer (R-TX), Michele Bachmann (R-MN) and Ted Poe (R-TX). (Let’s not forget these names, because I can guarantee you will see them again next year.)
Now the United States House of Representatives passed an amendment recognizing and celebrating the 50th anniversary of the entry of Hawaii into the Union as the 50th state. It’s interesting that the final result of this resolution was 378-0. How can that be? No Republicans voted against it, not one. I’m sure the ones who publicly have said they are with the Birthers are not just appeasing them to gain their support, that couldn’t be. What do you have to say about Birthers? This is your party.
Of course there will be someone who will deny this at all cost because they want to believe and act as if racism however overt or blatant is never a factor and this is not about race. So how do you explain the conclusion the fringes of the Republican Party both the elected officials named and their constituents they represent who have bought into this hypocrisy?
Curse me, call me names, make fun of me, hate me whatever you have to do, but I can not see how you can justify supporting this conspiracy. The problem is not policy, but pigmentation. I doubt any Birther is honest enough to admit it, but they obviously have a issue with truth anyway.References & Inspirations Talking Points Memo – 07/27/09 “Lead Birther Bill Sponsor Votes To Recognize Hawaii As Obama’s Birthplace” U.S. House of Representatives – 07/27/09 “Final Vote Results of House Resolution 593” Hawaii Department of Health – 08/04/1961 “Certification of Live Birth: Barack Obama”
