Joyce.........are you sure the Alabama case is the 26th?? Or are you referring to Georgia?? I have seen nothing on Alabma for the 26th.......can you provide your source please.?
It's about time States stand up for the Constitution and demand that Obama satisfy the requirements set out in Article II, Section 1 to hold the office of Presidency. The Constitution is document that PROTECTS each and every one of us, and one of those protections is that the person who holds the office of the Presidency has sufficient stake in the running of the country and sufficient opportunity to understand our values.
If anyone has the chance, please check out the articles I've written and posted on my blogsite - http://forloveofgodandcountry.wordpress.com. My name is Diane Rufino and I believe we need to educate ourselves and take back the country.
Diane..........I like your blog...........on target.
This is the second court willing to make an issue out of the one point that is an issue. I admire the judge in Georgia and now Alabama. They want to uphold the constitution and they want things right for November. They are willing to let the cards fall where they will. Obama should be willing to do the same. If he has nothing to hide here is his chance to prove that and let the world know he is innocent. If not then the truth will come out and he will have to pay the penalty for his deciet of the people and the nation. Either way, it is a good thing. Other states should be doing the same thing. Make him prove who he really is and find out something about his past. Let the chips fall where they may and go from there.
There is an important note to be taken about how to file a ballot complaint in any state.
As Joyce Sutherland points out above, each state office must include the names of candidates that the DNC presents to them. The states do not have the authority to vet the candidates, the DNC does that.
But the citizens (or attorneys) do have the right to challange that elligability to be on the ballot. It's not the Attorney General or the Secretary of State dept that needs to be challanged. The docs below come from Liberty Legal Foundation. Sorry about the length but it's important.
State of Georgia; Complaint of ineligibility for office.
Liberty Legal Foundation.
Nature of Action;
1. Election codes and procedures of various states currently leave State election officials dependent upon accurate and truthful representations from political parties regarding the qualifications of candidates to hold Federal office. Specifically, the 50 Secretaries of State depend upon truthful representations by the Democratic Party that the individual selected by the Party as its candidate for the office of President of the United States is constitutionally qualified to hold said office. When the Secretaries of State receive a document from the Democratic Party identifying the Party’s candidate for President, the Secretaries of State are compelled to have that candidate’s name placed on ballots in all counties of their state. It is well established that the function of the Secretaries of State in this capacity is ministerial; meaning that the Secretaries have no authority to refuse once the Democratic Party has delivered the required documents. Because the Secretaries of State have no authority to scrutinize the candidate’s qualifications to hold office, this procedure leaves the Secretaries of State, any opposing candidates, and all citizens of the states completely dependent upon a truthful and accurate representation from the Democratic Party that their candidate is qualified to hold the office of President of the United States. This is why all documentation sent to the Secretaries of State prior to 2008 identifying the Democratic Party’s candidate for President always included an explicit representation that said candidate was qualified to hold the office of President of the United States.1

Harry: I have forwarded the information on Lt.Col. Reade's attempts to some people with connections to 6th Congressional District candidate for the House of Representsatives, Bill Hudak and inquired as to his possible involvement. Mr. Hudak is a Republican with a private law practice and has tried cases before the Supreme Court, is truly a conservative and might have an interest in this. If I hear anything back, I will reply in the forum and keep you posted. Lt. Col. Reade's posting gave enough information to be enticing, I think. here's hoping something can come of it and f I can help him or any other interested parties in any way, I WILL. Thanks.
I just hope the courts hold their ground and make him prove his eligibility .... that should rid us of this vile cancer in our once great country.
