It's the birthright of every natural born citizen to seek the office of the President. I see that the Supreme Court has declined to take up the issue of whether Obama is a natural born citizen.
They take cases at their discretion and that's the way it works.
My question, though, is who is the arbiter of whether a person is qualified for a particular office? I've seem local political races fought in Court, when one candidate would prove that another is not qualified by residence (or some other defect, like a felony conviction) to run for a particular office.
If not the Supreme Court, then who is supposed to decide issues that affect the Constitution?
I've always suspected that the Supreme Court is a bunch of lazy bastards who hide behind the rules of the Court to avoid doing any real work. They take, what, maybe twenty cases a year, mostly arcane points of law that deal with minutia and trivia. Not one percent of the United States understands half of what they do, and only one-half of one percent cares. Yet, they're held up as the finals arbiters of the Consitution, and when a case comes before them that has real Constitutional questions, it's a miracle if they decide to hear it.
We need a Constitutional Amendment that they'll listen to every stupid bastard who walks up the steps. Eliminate Standing as a legal defect. Just eliminate it. But have one Justice who sits in a Courtroom every day and answers questions from every dumb bastard who has a question.
