Passport - Department of State- allow electgronic verification of birth records

I just applied for a passport for my son who was born in California and provided the birth certificate provided by the county he was born in. DOS wrote back that I needed to get "long form birth certificate" from the state. This is a 14 week process. Why can't secure technology be used by individual states to DOS (and other agencies)? I have no problem paying the same $14.00, but in this day and age requiring a "raised... more »

Release Long Form Birth Certificate & Passport Records

Here's a novel idea: Rather than stir the pot of controversy and conspiracy, simply release to the public your actual long form birth certificate, not the "Certification of Live Birth" garbage. And while you're at it, release the passport records in regard to Indonesia. Your actions thus far are at best translucent, not even close to transparent.

Verification of eligibility / school records

It's just my personal opinion, but if I have to show this information to get a Drivers License, replacement SS card etc, YOU Mr. President, ought to have to to prove that you are in fact eligible to serve. Based on what you have done (ie seal all records and hire leigons of attorneys to make sure that the records stay that way) I would speculate that you have something to hide - like maybe you were not born in the USA... more »

I used to live in Hawaii...

...and a "Certificate of Live Birth" is NOT the same thing as a "Birth Certificate" in that state. You can check this out for yourself via their own state websites. I now live in Houston and two weeks ago had a chance convesation with a foreign student who is going to school here for Business. He is from Kenya. I asked him what do the Kenyan people think about Obama and all the controvery about where he was born?... more »

Legal & Policy Challenges

FOLLOW THE CONSTITUTION

You only need to look at the writings of Soetoro to see he does not and has never qualified to be POTUS. 1. His father was KENYAN, therefore he was British at birth. 2. If the birth certificate is shown, we may find he was born in Kenya, as his grandmother claims. 3. He was adopted by an Indonesian as a minor and lost all other citizenships he may have had at birth. His school records indicate he was Indonesian... more »

Legitimate President?

Show that you are a legitimate President, show the citizens of this once great country (you are destroying it with your policies) your documentation. You can start with your "real" Live Birth Certificate, not the counterfeit one you posted on your website. Even though I didn't care much for John McCain,he proved his eligibility to run for president by releasing his live birth certificate, you have not! Then show us "all"... more »

Show us the Birht Certificate not a COLB or Certificate of Live Birth.

I realize since the implementation of the Ex-patriation Act and the 14th Amendment, you in the Government Corporation no longer feel the need to adhere to the Constitution as you made everyone Federal Citizens and took away State Sovereignty from from most Citizens, of which most are totally unaware of. However you are still required to be a Natural born Citizen of the United States to hold the Presidency. You have... more »

This Will All Go Away If You'll Just Prove Your Citizenship.

Mr. Obama, I respect the office of the Presidency. Even though I don't agree with your political ideology, I respect the authority given to the President by the Constitution of the United States..but unless you prove your eligibility to serve as President of these United States as outlined in this very Constitution by our Founding Fathers, I am unable to legitimately acknowledge your title as being that of President... more »

A Failure to Prioritize - the Never-Ending Birth Certificate Issue

Is this issue more important than coming up with new ideas on how to house the homeless, develop energy independence, protect our borders from terrorists, provide jobs for unemployed workers, etc, etc...? I think whoever is behind this campaign has expressed their only idea sufficiently for the rest of us to know it's important to them. Now if they only had one or two new solutions for more important problems....

Is Anyone Really Fooled?

There is a truism more certain than the sunrise each morning. Obama, like most career politicians will stop at nothing to increase his political capital. Which simply means that if he had nothing to hide, the birth certificate would not be in a vault; it would be on display in the national mall.

 

President Obama...what are you hiding?

REALLY Open Government

The longer President Obama delays in providing the American People with a certified copy of his original vault birth certificate and a copy of his college records, the more severe will be the damage to our country should it prove that President Obama was not born in Hawaii. All Americans deserve the truth as soon as possible and we are asking for nothing more or less.
