100. Again with the personal insinuations....
Edited on Fri Dec-05-08 01:47 AM by jberryhill
I'm a natural born citizen of Delaware, if you must know. The First State to ratify the Constitution and the deciding vote for Independence. I suffer from the handicap of having had Joe Biden as my advanced con law professor, so forgive my apparent ignorance of the topic.

Then again, my mother was a war bride and a naturalized citizen, so I guess the freeps won't let me be president either, heh.

I'm beginning to doubt you are a lawyer, though. If "the constitution is inapplicable" then why were you saying that a 5 year old cannot, if he wins the election, be president?

You seem to grasp the function of the Constitution in its substantive relationship to state power and individual rights. You do not seem to grasp that it also includes a procedural outline of certain functions.

But I'll tell you this much for certain - you make one more statement to the effect that I'm some "enemy of freedom" or raise questions concerning my origin or parentage, and you can continue to have this conversation on your own. You got that?

I am absolutely fed up with the attitude of those on the right that disagreement equates to lack of "patriotism", and I sure as hell am not going to put up with that sort of well poisoning crap from some a-hole on DU.

Congress can remove any president from office at any time by impeachment. They can do it immediately upon inauguration of the president if they want. Where does your popular sovereignty go then?
