You know, the rumors that there is something about Obama’s birth certificate that will demonstrate he wasn’t born in Hawaii, or somesuch.
I don’t really believe there is any truth to that thesis. So why do I want Obama to allow the original birth certificate – which has never been seen in public – to be released so we can all see it?
Because he apparently doesn’t want to do that. And that is more than enough reason for me to demand that he do so. I don’t believe politicians should have any rights to privacy. If they want our votes, and want us to delegate massive powers over us to them, they should not be permitted any secrets from us.
If they want privacy, the answer is simple: Stay in the private sector. But the minute you come parading to me begging for my vote, and power over me, you’re fair game.
Show us the damned birth certificate, Obama!
