Birthers Now Hate America, Apparently

Federal judge David O. Carter just threw out the latest birther claim that our current president wasn't born in the United States, therefore, is not eligible to be president. The judge's ruling included a statement declaring that the "plaintiffs were trying to persuade him to 'disregard the constitutional procedures in place for the removal of a sitting president.'"

"'The process for removal of a sitting president - removal for any reason - is within the province of Congress, not the courts,' the ruling said."

The judge laid it out in very clear language; if you have a problem with the current president, take it up with Congress. If you insist on going through the legal system, you are not working within our legal system, as established by the Constitution. It has been nearly a year since the election, and the birthers have spent the last twelve months trying every plea imaginable to get us all to believe his election wasn't valid. The system has thwarted every attempt thus far, and with every defeat, they come back with stronger and stronger rhetoric.

Now, I have a pre-emptive argument against what is sure to be their next volley of insanity. They're going to come out and tell us that the judge is part of this left-wing conspiracy to keep his identity a secret. They're going to say they can't get justice in the courts.

I say, "If they have no interest in following the guidelines of the Constitution, they simply hate America."

I know that accusation gets thrown around a lot, but if birthers can't get behind following the Constitution, what exactly is it they think they're defending? The president doesn't even take an oath to the country, he takes an oath of allegiance to the Constitution. If they truly think Barack Obama was born in Kenya, they need to work within the system. They need to start supporting Republican candidates, and pray a Republican majority will go along with their insane scheme to get rid of the president. If they insist on playing the victims and complaining about the inequities in the legal system, maybe they should start investigating what it really is they're defending.

This is all part of living in the Republic they say they love so much. Sometimes the other guy wins, and if they don't like it, they should wait four years and vote for someone else, like the rest of us.
