"Birthers" need to SHUT UP

I want to point out to all those who are calling for Obama's Birth Certificate-- you ought to read the FOLLOWING. Sure, I'd like to see it, too. I'd like to see his school records. But really, what difference is it going to make about his birth certificate, when you read below? This is the current reading of TITLE 8, SECTION 1401, which defines "Citizen at birth," which is another way of saying "Natural-born citizen."

Currently, Title 8 of the U.S. Code fills in the gaps left by the Constitution. Section 1401 defines the following as people who are "citizens of the United States at birth:"

  • Anyone born inside the United States * (my note, does not include children of those not subject to the jurisdiction of the U.S. This means children of diplomats, for instance--since they have diplomatic immunity)
  • Any Indian or Eskimo born in the United States, provided being a citizen of the U.S. Does not impair the person's status as a citizen of the tribe
  • Any one born outside the United States, both of whose parents are citizens of the U.S., as long as one parent has lived in the U.S
  • (Note, the above applies to John McCain).
  • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. For at least one year and the other parent is a U.S. National
  • Any one born in a U.S. Possession, if one parent is a citizen and lived in the U.S. For at least one year
  • Any one found in the U.S. Under the age of five, whose parentage cannot be determined, as long as proof of non-citizenship is not provided by age 21
  • Any one born outside the United States, if one parent is an alien and as long as the other parent is a citizen of the U.S. Who lived in the U.S. For at least five years (with military and diplomatic service included in this time)
  • (NOTE, Above applies to Obama)
  • A final, historical condition: a person born before 5/24/1934 of an alien father and a U.S. Citizen mother who has lived in the U.S.
I have added the Bold, italics and underline for emphasis; they are not part of the original text.
Obama's mother, Stanley Ann Dunham was born in Wichita, KS, and spent all her first 17+ years (Until High School Graduation) in the CONTINENTAL U.S.) Her parents moved to Hawaii in 1960, and Hawaii was then a state.
As so far as I am concerned, U.S. Law takes precedence here. "Natural Born" meaning "Citizen at Birth", Obama falls INTO THIS CATEGORY.
So, whether or not Obama was actually BORN IN HAWAII is immaterial. He could have been born ON THE MOON, and it would make no difference.
Case closed.
(NOTE: This doesn't mean I like his policies, it doesn't mean I a democrat, and the previous two statements don't mean you can call me racist. If you do, you're a bigger liar than Clinton with his "I did not have sexual relations with that woman, Monica Lewinsky."
Birthers, if you're going to continue beating a dead horse, you're harming the cause. So, SHUT THE HELL UP.
These are the FACTS...not just the fact AS I SEE IT...but what the LAW SAYS.
