WND Petition for Public Release of Obama Birth Certificate

World Net Daily launched an online petition for the public release of Barack Obama's Birth Certificate yesterday.

You can read the petition below, and you can sign it here.

WND claims that they have 33,000 signatures already. I've signed the petition, but it seems a little WND self serving, as the collected emails are a great addition to their marketing database. In addition, I think I would probably change the recipients of the petition and tighten up the language.

If I'm inspired, I may draw up another petition on the topic.

Begin WND Petition


To: Electoral College, Congress of the United States, Federal Elections Commission, U.S. Supreme Court, President of the United States, other controlling legal authorities

Whereas, by requirement of the United States Constitution, Article 2, Section 1, no one can be sworn into office as president of the United States without being a natural born citizen;

Whereas, there is sufficient controversy within the citizenry of the United States as to whether presidential election winner Barack Obama was actually born in Hawaii as he claims;

Whereas, Barack Obama has refused repeated calls to release publicly his entire Hawaiian birth certificate, which would include the actual hospital that performed the delivery;

Whereas, lawsuits filed in several states seeking only proof of the basic minimal standard of eligibility have been rebuffed;

Whereas, Hawaii at the time of Obama's birth allowed births that took place in foreign countries to be registered in Hawaii;

Whereas, concerns that our government is not taking this constitutional question seriously will result in diminished confidence in our system of free and fair elections;


We, the undersigned, assert our rights as citizens of the United States in demanding that the constitutional eligibility requirement be taken seriously and that any and all controlling legal authorities in this matter examine the complete birth certificate of Barack Obama, including the actual city and hospital of birth, and make that document available to the American people for inspection.

Aug 4, 1961 was a Friday. The certificate says it was filed on Aug 8, 1961..that is only two working days. That seems a bit quick if you ask me. As I understand, it takes AT LEAST a week to get it filed.
