Is Article 2 of the Constitution of the United States is it in fact discriminatory as Abdul Hassan stated? Not likely, but he is going to cite the Supreme Court due to his interest in the United States Presidential position.
Abdul Hassan is a Labor Law Attorney in New York. He was born in Guyana but claims, since he is a naturalized citizen, he has the right to run for President of the United States.
He petitioned the Federal Elections Commission saying, “the Federal Elections Campaign Act does not bar naturalized citizens from running for President.”
Article 2 says, “No person except a natural born citizen or a citizen of the United States at time of the adoption of this Constitution shall be eligible for President.” Mr. Abdul Hassan, Esq., is playing on the words written by the Forefathers. He claims that since he is a naturalized person, that he is qualified to run for President.
The Federal Election Commission agrees with his logic. The Supreme Court has played with the wording in this particular article for many years, and has not yet found a solution. However, John McCain when campaigning for President was asked by Congress to prove his eligibility since he was born in the Panama Canal. The difference is, both John McCain’s parents were American born citizens, and he was born in an area which was covered by the sea distance in the Constitution. As of this day, Obama has never been confronted about his “legal” place of birth by this setting Congress.
On a morning radio show, Abdul Hassan was questioned by the radio show host. You can listen to the broadcast at this link;. http://wabcradio.com/showdj.asp?DJID=54157
Mr. Hassan tells Mr Klein the host, that he does not feel it is an issue for him to run for President. There most certainly are issues. The first concern being that he has loyalties to two distinct countries…Guyana is his homeland, there for how can he take the oath which entitles him to be President. Of course Obama took the oath, so Hassan may have an argument there about Obama’s eligibility.
Reading the Federalist Letters is an accurate description of the Constitution and exactly what it means. It means exactly what it says, thus leaving Abdul Hassan out of the Presidential race.
Though the Federal Election Commission agreed to allow him to run for the office, he will not be permitted to receive matching funds from the FEC.
Abdul Hassan argues the word “Person” in relation to his eligibility mapping the Constitution. He has cited the Supreme Court as providing “equal protection” to naturalized citizens.

What kind of abscess is festering? The election of Barrack Obama has opened the door for other Muslim brotherhood member to attempt the takeover of America. This article is my own personal opinion and I was neither coheres nor threatened by an American citizen to express my logically consistent concerns.
Vote wisely in 2012.
