“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
“A citizenry that cannot compel its current elected officials to carry out those laws already in effect, cannot change this outcome by electing new officials or enacting new laws.”
If Barack Obama is not Constitutionally eligible to hold the office of President then, those members of the D party broke the law in 2008 who swore to state election officials he was, to get them to print his name on the ballot in those states that only print the names of candidates qualified for the job. Many people who believe he is ineligible advocate we should shore up state election laws to forestall another round of fraud in 2012. Meanwhile, others urge we should not let off the hook those members of the D party who fraudulently pulled off his election in 2008.
The problem of establishing candidate eligibility for office can be rectified on two fronts.
Those of you in states without existing ballot eligibility laws can focus on drafting smart candidate ballot eligibility laws for 2012. The rest of you can work to persuade your A’sG to enforce existing laws. In this way, that is, by concentrating on eliminating election fraud viz a viz the ballot using both prevention AND remediation, we can get at the problem of candidate eligibility coming AND going.
