Civics class was long ago....

Civics class was long ago and I have a strange question relating to it. Any help would be appreciated. There was a letter to the editor of my local paper claiming that the president's birth certificate was forged and he isnt a U.S. citizen. If this is proven to be true, would he and his whole administration be taken out of office with a new election. Also, considering how much debt this country has, how can we afford a $3.6 trillion budget. Isn't it time that the federal government heavily reduced spending to pay down our debt before we become a third world nation?

Believe me, if there were any problems with the lineage of our supreme commander, he would be living back in Chicago, today. But from a civics class pov, it wouldn't affect his cabinet, nor his assignments, only him. Naturally, the vice president would take over, and may or may not change the cabinet. I have always said, we have, waiting in the wings....the four horsemen of the Apocalypse.....Biden, Pelosi, Clinton and Reid. But then I get political and will get shut down.

Thank you it made me wonder. As a member of a third party, I tend to heavily disagree with the ideas of the major two political parties so therefore I never vote for them.

Just because it sparked a thought (doesn't happen that often)...and not to start anything with anyone..ok?

Why is it that most (from what I observe) people that do things for themselves and work hard..seem to be more conservative in their thinking?

I wasn't trying to start anything. It was just meant as a normal question.

At least it wasn't looking at cans at the grocery store and checking their tie and tier or the gap behind them. NOP, you got too much time on your hands.

How could you say that with a straight face. I can't believe, living in this, the United States of America, that I would hear such a thing like that.
With all the things you see on the news, that we would have this kind of problem. The more I read about this the worse it seems to get. I don't know, maybe it's me, but it is happening more and more. I would think it should be getting better by now. After reading this you have probably noticed, that it had nothing to do with anything at all. I just wanted to lighten the mood a little. You know how most things political can go.I hope yall don't mind.


Thanks for letting me vent.Beer 4U2
