Certificate of Live Birth for Barack Obama

Rumors on the Internet have been flying around fast and furious that Barack Obama is not qualified to be President of the United States because he has not yet produced a real Birth certificate with his name: Barack Obama. Some people claim that Barack Obama's Birth certificate/certificate of live birth has either been forged, tampered with or in some way been altered. There has been speculation that Barack Obama was actually born in Kenya, and that because of this he cannot constitutionally be President (the constitution has 3 qualifications for presidency: you must be at least 35 years old, be born in the United States and have been a resident of the United States for at least 14 years)

Now after seeing this "conspiracy " rise to a crescendo , I decided to look into the facts myself and see if I could come up with some real evidence that indeed Barack Obama has a Birth Certificate or evidence of his birth place.

Political reporters over at FactCheck have done a good job on this story and I think they have presented some of the best information on Barack Obama, and as for me, I am convinced that the controversy over Barack Obama's birth certificate/certificate of live birth is just that - a conspiracy that has no merit (and this is coming from a conspiracy theorist - so I always look on both sides of the fence and try not to "assume" anything)

Now for the naysayers, don't you think that "The Powers That Be" check into these things too before someone runs for President of the United States? I mean come on now, how long has Mr. Barack Obama been a senator?

Don't you think that if it was that easy to misrepresent yourself about your birth that we'd have every Tom, Dick and Harry running for positions in high places?

Barack Obama's Certificate of Live Birth

So after reading some interesting forums threads that Barack Obama has not produced an original Birth Certificate and that somehow he is hiding facts surrounding the birth certificate, I have provided links to the original stories and pictures of Obama's Certificate of Live Birth (Hawaii's short form for a Birth Certificate). Please take a look at the links below that not only show multiple copies and views of Barack Obama's Birth certificate but also show an original copy of the Birth Announcement of Barack Obama's birth in a Hawaiian newspaper.

Then please come back here and tell me we have a conspiracy on our hands.....

(And if this turns out to be wrong I'll wear a tinfoil hat on Election Week!)

A Huge Conspiracy Involving Multiple Agencies?

So folks for those that want to keep that tin-foil hat on insisting that Obama's Birth Certificate is a fake, just remember how many people would have had to conspire to forge Barack Obama's Birth Certificate:as one site mentioned, this is what would have needed to happen for this to be a conspiracy:

If this document is forged, a U.S. senator and his presidential campaign have perpetrated a vast, long-term fraud. They have done it with conspiring officials at the Hawaii Department of Health, the Cook County (Ill.) Bureau of Vital Statistics, the Illinois Secretary of State’s office, the Attorney Registration & Disciplinary Commission of the Supreme Court of Illinois and many other government agencies.

Now do you really think that all of these agencies have conspired against the people of the United States to alter Barack Obama's original birth certificate? And don't you think that if there was any merit to this supposed conspiracy that McCains camp would be climbing all over this story?

Come on now and let's get on with the election!

(and yes I guess you can tell who I'm voting for, but I'm OK with you disagreeing - that's politics! )
