If barack hussein obama is ineligible, what happens

November 23rd, 2008, 6:08 pm

Obama citizenship question goes to U.S. Supreme Courtwhat happens if he was indeed born in Kenya and is not a natural born citizen ?anyone read the law closely enough to know which of the following (or maybe an alternative not listed) would happen ?a) the electoral college meets with electors as selected in the general and picks a democrat other than obama b) obama's votes in the general are ignored and someone else (mccain or if he's ineligible also then bob barr ? nadir ?) has their electors selectedc) a new general election (and presumably new primaries) is orderd) bush43 continues for another 4 yearse) cheney takes over as pres Edit: added Nov.27 2008:Some folks don't seem to understand the questions raised here:there is a case on the Supreme Court docket asking for an Emergency StayLeo C. Donofrio vs Nina Mitchell Wells (the NJ Secretary of State)The case questions the eligibility of both Obama and McCain for the office of the presidency (along with Roger Colera who ran for the Socialist Workers Party and was born in Nicaragua)Justice Clarence Thomas is to bring the case to conferenceSCOTUS docket: case set for conference Dec. 5thand if 4 of the 9 justices agree, it goes to a full hearing.The vote on Nov 4th was to select the Electoral College, which meets DECEMBER 15th to select the president.The suit questions whether McCain and Obama are natural born citizens:McCain was born in Panama and both his parents were US citizens Obama has a Hawaii birth certificate and the suit is questioning whether he was born in Hawaii or (as some of Obama's relatives have claimed) he was born in Kenya and has a Hawaii birth certificate because the birth was registered there as his mother resided there.A second issue raised by the suit is whether Obama became an Indonesian citizen when his mother remarried and moved to Indonesia, and if so whether by doing so he surrendered his US citizenship.Calling me names does not alter the fact that this case is on the SCOTUS docket

Instead of becoming President, he is made Eternal Emperor with total authority over everything, and Sharia law is imposed while Congress and the Supreme Court are disbanned.So basically, no worries.

one constitutional scholar suggests that it is the role of the electoral college (not the supremes) to verify hussein's eligibilityQuoteA one-time vice presidential candidate who is considered an expert on the U.S. Constitution says it is up the electors from the 50 states to make certain President-elect Obama is a natural-born U.S. citizen before they cast votes for him in the Electoral College Dec. 15."If they do their duty, they would make sure that if they cast a vote for Mr. Obama, that Mr. Obama is a natural-born citizen," Herb Titus, the Constitution Party's running mate to Howard Phillips in 1996, said."I think it should be resolved. The duty is in the Electoral College. Every Obama elector that is committed to casting a vote on the 15th of December, they have a constitutional duty to make certain whether Mr. Obama is a natural-born citizen," he said.If the electors fail their duty and Obama proves ultimately to fail the eligibility requirement of the U.S. Constitution, there would be only the laborious, contentious and cumbersome process of impeachment available to those who would wish to follow the Constitution, he suggested.impeachment won't happen: the Dems hold both houses and won't impeach their own guy

What I am allowed to say about this un-educated claptrap?I doubt that ppauper is uneducated. He just has a wilfull disregard for truth or logic.As regards what you can say, ask Paul or just try it on. There are several posters besides ppauper who get away with just about any abuse. Ppauper's obsessive favorites seem to be anything to do with shit, dicks up male asses and racism.Just about everyone on the forum understands that about him except for a handful of people with the similar predilictions.

The birth certificate shows he is native-born, in Hawaii. In fact, CNN sent some reporters to the hospital where Barack Obama was born to verify his birth records. There was some debate in 2000 as to whether John McCain, having been born in the Panama Canal Zone, is eligible.Although the Panama Canal Zone has never been a state of the US, it was a US territory, much the same as Guam, Wake Island and Puerto Rico. Question for ppauper: What if Obama is Muslim, which he is not ?
