If you can show me where it says original birth cert was produced , please let me know, otherwise don't make it up.

    Just one of many which I dug up today. As arm chair politics goes...you can believe what you want to believe but you don't live there. Like me what I say or what you say..it counts for very little. Let's just leave it at that.

    BTW..I am not a Obama fan boy...I just happen to have followed the election for a long time as matter of interest.

I doubt it be that easy to pull off something that is occuring on the international stage under the scrutiny of not just those of power in the US but the rest of the known world. Politics is dirty. When the election was finally over last year..I has to take a long politcal shower to wash off the one year of dirt that was smeared on me watching the news day in and day out heheheheh.....

    Thats a certification of birth , not the original birth certificate look at the date( dated 2007). The fact remains that he has not produced the original birth certificate.

    Does it really matter of the original is produced? So what? Immediate re-election or McCain automatically get the hot seat?

    Will it help America is McCain get's the seat by default? You think it will be stable?

    This one is not the same, it is about whoever steps up and ask you to vote for them. They could be doing it for you or for themselves or some parties with hidden agendas... who is to say BUT...like it or not, you still have to choose one of them. ( best of the angles or devils heheh) So how can that be the best man or woman for the job? heh OR do you think we could vote not to choose if none of them are good enough?

    Sometime... the best person for the job is not up there on the podium....but some one behind you or beside you ..ie....who is relutant to step up and do the right thing. SO all you can do is to pick the best of two that's up for election.

    Well if you want to let a FT take the rein for a country like ours or another well..that is not impossible but how many people in the nation will agree to that?

    but isn't that democracy? where a person is elected among his or her peers to represent the ideas and hopes of his/her peers? didn't the ancient Greeks do that when they "invented" modern day democracy, and choosing leaders from certain villages to present their ideas and problems at the forum?

    or have I mixed things up again for the umpteenth time again today?
    chicken fight!

    Firstly, you don't just choose the person, you choose his team (or the expected team he would form should he wins). But ya, you still need to pick the Indian chief.

    Secondly, that is also what I mean by "does it matter?" cuz whomever is on the hot seat are still subjected to the various lobbying groups. And there is no way anyone can change a country in a generation, much less a term.

    You can now see that is gonna be more or less the same for America....

    heheheh....the world we see in our mind's eye and what we see with our physical eyes will never be the same thing. High ideals are easy to envision and even etch in stone but hard to carry out and carried for long consistently. As the saying goes "Power corrupts". But I do like the idea that a President can only stand for up to two terms only. And then the whole process starts again giving you the chance to say 'No, I want to pick the other side now' and also there is that less popular but available 3rd option which is the "independent" Where you represent not the republicans nor the democrats. Perfect system? No I don't think so but it just 'seem' more "fair" in some sense heheh..
