This is embarrassing. How do parents even dare using their child for such a crappy reason? And what that boy's saying there.. I can't believe it.

He actually didn't, he just chose to, which was pretty pointless. Personally, I was a little pissed off he went to such lengths to appease morons who hate him anyway.


Was it really pointless? I don't hate Obama personally and I was curious for him to show his BC...it's rather important to know if anyone running for President was actually born in the United States, that's Constitutional law. You can't just go around ignoring such things because before you know it other parts will start being ignored like freedom of speech.

The President of the United States must be a natural-born citizen, and that was put into place for a very good reason which was to protect the nation from foreign influence.

And just for further clarity President Obama isn't the only Presidential candidate whose eligibility was questioned:


Chester A. Arthur
Christopher Schürmann
Charles Evans Hughes
Barry Goldwater
George Romney
Lowell Weicker
Róger Calero
John McCain

have been the others before President Obama.

9/11 INSIDE JOB
FAKE MOON LANDING
AURORA SHOOTING WAS CIA


The fact is that before Bin Laden was killed, there were conspiracy theorists who stated he was ALREADY dead and that the government was pretending he was still alive, and I bet these are some of the same people who are now arguing he is still alive.


The fact is, both sides are so twisted that the average citizen will never know the actual truth one way or the other.

so that kid said that Obama wants to take guns away from the good guys...so this 10 years old kid knows who is a good guy and who is a bad guy? interesting...you either have to take away guns for everyone or for no one...and also, as John already said, Obama did absolutely nothing to that...

number one is just..well, hilarious...but also sad...poor kid...

Well, Rammstein's video of Amerika certainly made me think about it. :P

If I remember correctly, Obama signed exactly one piece of legislation involving gun rights, and it actually loosened restrictions.

Though I have to admit, whether you're pro or anti, guns are a majorly stupid single issue for a person to decide their vote on.

Am I allowed to say that how these parents make use of their child reminds me of this songtext of Social Distortion? "You need a license to drive but nothing to raise a child."

The constitution does not require a person to be born in the USA, it requires them to be a natural born citizen, or in other words, naturalized as a citizen at birth. If you were born to an American mother who has been on US soil within the last 5 years, you are a natural born citizen and eligible to be President.

Which is all totally pointless since Obama was born in Hawaii and there was already sufficient evidence that Obama was born in Hawaii.

Not to mention that the Supreme Court has told everyone to shut up about numerous times, and that they weren't going to waste time on it, even before Sotomayor and Kagan were appointed.

Maybe he just wanted to stop getting questions about it. :)

Evidence such as?

I just did a little bit of research and really even if both his parents were non-US citizens and never stepped foot in the country other on the day he was born in Hawaii, he'd still qualify as a natural born citizen. So his birth certificate would prove that, and I think that's all people were wanting.

Pretty sick, huh?


That article made me want to hurl.

I mean the thing that gets me is when people say that they don't want gay people to "inflict their values on us" and yet I'm pretty sure, with the boot on the other foot, [straight people generalisation] are inflicting [their] values on the homosexual/pan/etc community...

Also, I'm sorry your father has such a small penis that he needs a truck that big.


Lolz.

Seriously though. This is my family (well, not literally, but this is what my family is like. They tried to make me that brainwashed kid, but i was smarter than that :creep: )

Nothing is based on fact anymore. Every presidential campaign is a mudslinging soap opera. I really kind of wish they'd ban the propaganda bullshit TV ads already.

Of course, John's whole post is beautiful, but I especially like this point:

7. Obama's White House raised awareness that more people are eligible for food stamps than actually take advantage of them. It would actually be beneficial for the economy for some people on the border of poverty to accept food stamps, so they have more money to spend in the private sector which would benefit all of us in the long run by stimulating business and job growth.


FUCKING THANK YOU. The poor are criticized for being burdens on society by accepting food stamps and not adding to the economy because they are so poor. And then if they are poorer and receive food stamps but are still willing/able to maybe go to the movies or take the kids to a ballgame or something, they're taking advantage of government dollars. Of course, there's a line at which it becomes mooching, but that line is debatable and IMO, not as often reached as opponents to food stamps like to believe. Overall, though, I wish more people would consider this point. We as Americans pride ourselves on a high quality of life. Everyone should be allowed to experience some level of that quality, and being able to participate in the private sector and enjoy the services business have to offer. Plus, hey, if the lower class' participation in the economy can help create jobs (See! "Job creators" can start at the most base level!), then, hopefully, those whose disposable income helped to create them can take the jobs, and, hopefully, raise enough money to get off of food stamps. Hooray!


I'm so idealistic, aren't I? :lol:=/

He's obviously part of a southern white upper-middle or upper class family. Never mind the fact that all these "reasons" for not voting are completely false and pretty ignorant, he's six. Six year olds should not a part of political YouTube videos. Their parents can make them all they want, that's fine, they have freedom of speech. But a six year old shouldn't be a pawn in the adult's game of politics. I'm 14 and I will truthfully say that I still don't know anymore than what my mom tells me and little bits of news that blow up on the internet. There's no way a six year old knows what the hell he's talking about.
