A Blog Addition

"I uphold and seek to preserve the sovereignty of the American people, and to restore respect for the principles set forth in the American Declaration of Independence. In light of those principles, I believe the top priority of our political life is to restore respect for the existence and authority of the Creator, God and to rebuild the moral conscience and character of the American people on the basis of that respect." ~ Dr. Alan Keyes

I've just added another blog to my blogroll. It is hosted by Dr. Alan Keyes, former Ambassador to the UN, and (at least) two time unsuccessful candidate for President. I have a great deal of respect for Dr. Keyes, and would have voted for him for President years ago if I thought he had any viable solutions. By that I mean, he was dead on in diagnosing what was wrong with American politics and ideologies, but he didn't seem to know what to do to solve them. At least, he failed to offer solutions to the problems. In short, he had plenty of thought provoking questions but not enough answers to win my vote.

Be that as it may, Dr. Keyes has a clear view of what is wrong with the Obama administration and Liberal politics in general.

Dr. Keyes is also one of many plantiffs in lawsuits brought that seek definite proof of Obama's citizenship in regard to his qualifications to serve as President of these United States of America.

Personally, I believe Obama is a legal citizen by virtue of the fact that he was born to an American citizen, his mother. There is no doubt she was a citizen, so by law, he is also an American citizen. Like it or not.

I don't always agree with Dr. Keyes on some issues, but I deeply respect and admire the man for his dedication to Liberty. And, I believe he is sincere, a quality rarely seen in politicians today.

Please visit his site.

I voted for Dr. Keyes in the primaries. My thoughts were that he may not have had the solutions, but at least he knew what the problems were.

I felt the other candidates had solutions, but didn't have a true handle on the problems. Thus, no TRUE solutions.

That certainly is a common sense way to look at it, Krystal.

I almost think Keyes must have read this entry himself after reading his latest post. He seems to address this subject. He talks about questions without solutions and says he will present his solutions in upcoming posts.

Mark, If what you say about Obama's citizen ship is correct, Why would Keyes et al be pursuing this Certificate of Live Birth deal?

Trader Rick said...

Some hold that John McCain (Panama), Barry Goldwater (Arizona Territory) and B. Hussein Obama (Kenya? Pluto? No birth certificate produced) are not "Natural Born Citizens", a qualification to be Commander in Chief.

BUT not to worry. We are no longer a nation of Laws.

Mark said...

Rick, as I understand it, The Constitution says as long as one of our biological parents are American citizens, we are born American citizens. If I understand it wrong, feel free to correct me.

I will admit it if I am wrong about something.

Keyes was my man...and still is one of my top choices.
