Would you support a bill in your state requiring presidential candidates to prove their eligibility?

Let's take that "Birther" concept to the next level, shall we?  Since it "keeps" coming up, let's discuss future POLICY.....

There are proposals being taken up in several states (Arizona, Pennsylvania, Texas, Montana, etc...)

 “Within ten days after submittal of the names of the candidates, the national political party committee shall submit an affidavit of the presidential candidate in which the presidential candidate states the candidate's citizenship and age and shall append to the affidavit documents that prove that the candidate is a natural born citizen, prove the candidate's age and prove that the candidate meets the residency requirements for President of the United States as prescribed in article II, section 1, Constitution of the United States.”

Would you support this as your states law?  No official documentation... No name on the ballot...

Why? Why Not?

  • Moving Forward~The best way to avoid conspiriacy theorists? Require facts..... This is pretty clear on requiring facts before one can be on a ballot... So sure... I would support my state making this a law....

  • Yes! I think that would be a great idea. Especially since there is still debate as to whether our current president was a natural born citizen. You have to prove who you are and provide a birth certificate to get a driver's license, you think, since the people are a presidential candiditate, that the least they could do is prove the same!
