Wording of the petition:
"THIS IS A NON-PARTISAN PETITION
OATH OF OFFICE for Congressmen, Senators and the President of the United States as set forth in the US Constitution
I do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God.
Dear Congressional Representative:
I am writing to ask you to defend our country and uphold the Constitution as per your solemn oath of office. I believe we are facing a Constitutional crisis with the unanswered questions surrounding Barack Obama’s eligibility to be President in accordance to Article 2 of the Constitution.
Mr. Obama has refused, to date, to release any and all information that would prove his eligibility. Due to the many concerns surrounding this issue, you cannot allow this to pass without challenge. I am asking that you, as my representative, join in a Congressional or Senate investigation, formal or otherwise, and file a joint written objection with the Federal Registry which is required to be signed from a member from both houses to challenge Barack Obama’s certification as the next President of the United States. His candidacy should be rejected unless he provides unimpeachable proof that he is in fact eligible to take office. This MUST be done before the Congress reconvenes for the formal count on January 8, 2009.
You might be thinking that Mr. Obama's eligibility has already been confirmed. I assure you it has not. Regardless of whether it was real, altered or forged, that computer printout supplied by Mr. Obama is simply NOT the “Birth Certificate” that could be used to prove U.S. birth. The document that Mr. Obama has provided to the public is a ‘certification of live birth, typically available for children born overseas of at least one Hawaiian citizen. The vault (long Version) birth certificate, per Hawaiian Statute 883.176 allows the birth in another State or another country to be registered in Hawaii. Box 7C of the vault Certificate of Live Birth contains a question, whether the birth was in Hawaii or another State or Country. This is the document needed for verification.
This has been a huge controversy and has generated twenty plus lawsuits and the tally is only growing. Some of these cases have reached the Supreme Court. No case has been lost on the merits – any dismissals have been exclusively based on legal technicalities designed to avoid the evidence and even the discussion. Other lawsuits before the Supreme Court point out that natural born status preclude children born with dual citizenship like Obama from being president regardless of where born. This cannot be simply overlooked. This won’t go away, but will be a crisis that grows with every illegal signature. Due to these concerns, I have attached additional documentation concerning this matter and a video has been produced on these issues, which can be seen at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...
It is imperative that our representatives ensure that our Constitution be upheld and abided by. This should not be an option to you, but a requirement of your office. If our own government officials will not uphold it and be allowed to turn their backs to it, then it should be expected that its ‘people’ will no longer be bound by it either.
If we begin to allow ourselves to select what suits us, when it suits us, we have then made the Constitution meaningless. It would no longer carry authority and there is no longer a unity among the states or its’ people. We should be ruled by Law, not by the whims of man, party loyalty, or how much money a person has.
Hundreds of thousands of Americans have signed petitions demonstrating their outrage over this. Millions have viewed the web sites and joined the discussions. Despite a media blackout, polls now show a majority of Americans are aware of this ongoing controversy and want the matter faithfully resolved in keeping with the constitution. WE are expecting that our representatives will take action and stand up for our rights on this matter. It is your Constitutional right to make this objection. It takes one senator and one representative – each from any state; I am hoping that at least one of those persons is you. We hold you, and the position for which you have been elected, in the highest regard and have every hope that you will uphold the oath you took.
For our Constitutional Republic,
We sign this petition
Article 2, Section I
