If we examine the occupations of the men who affixed their signatures to the Declaration of Independence, we find for the most part that they were successful businessmen. There were 25 lawyers, 15 merchants, 7 plantation owners, 3 physicians and a smattering of farmers, landowners and Ben Franklin who was in a class all by himself.
Their average age was 44.
The oldest - Ben Franklin at 70.
The youngest - Thomas Lynch Jr. at 26.
Some issues are viewed as a third rail; touch them and *zap* you're gone. Such was the subject of independence from Great Britain in 1776. Today it is the subject of Obama's long form birth certificate.
The liberal media inflicts severe punishment upon anyone who dares to broach the subject of Obama's place of birth. Obama has allegedly spent almost two million dollars in legal fees fighting any and all attempts to produce this document.
Anyone who spends this much money and effort to conceal something is definitely afraid of the consequences if it becomes available to the public. For the past two years the media has labeled people as "birthers" and "crazies" if they do question why this document has not been made public, particularly in view of similar disclosures made by other Presidential candidates who produced their birth certificates to quell any rumors of impropriety.
Until The Donald started making noise.
Now don't get all twitchy on me. I am not elevating Donald Trump to some exalted public savior position. All I'm saying is that the men who dared to sign a document endorsing treason (that's how the most powerful nation on the earth viewed it at the time) were successful businessmen who had a lot to lose. They spent the next five years running for their lives.Many of them lost their fortune, their families and even their lives because their signature was on the bottom of the most famous document in American history.
Today, we have another successful businessman who refuses to take the easy way out. He knows what he knows because he knows how to make and keep billions of dollars and thousands of people employed. He also knows when something stinks to high heaven and is not afraid to say so, even to the extent of hiring his own private investigators and sending them to Hawaii for a looksee at Obama's past.
I am saying I want to see the birth certificate. It’s very simple. I want to see the birth certificate. How come his own family doesn’t know which hospital he was born in? How come– forget about birth certificates. Let’s say there’s no birth certificate. How come in the hospital itself, okay? This is one of the…in the hospital itself, there’s no records of his birth. In other words, it doesn’t say how much they paid, where is the doctor, here’s your room bill.Is Trump running for President? I haven't the foggiest notion. Would I vote for him if he did? Same answer. But he has the stones to do the job, more so than many of the other candidates out there who are afraid to touch the third rail of modern politics.
He adds that his people in Hawaii “can’t believe what they’re finding.”
