U.S. Rep. Paul Broun's Oct. 10 guest column was titled, "Pledge to America: We are listening." They might be listening, but they are not either hearing or understanding. Nor is he responding to his constituents.
Seventy-nine percent of Americans want term limits for Congress. I have mentioned this many times to Broun and his staffers as well as in letters, phone calls and e-mails to Sens. Saxby Chambliss and Johnny Isakson. However, this has not been addressed in their 21 pages of gobbledygook. I have faxed and hand-delivered letters to his Washington and Evans offices. All I get back are canned, trite replies.
The last letter contained six questions that could be easily answered "yes" or "no" and a seventh question that asked what action he would take. That question could have been answered in one short sentence.
Broun states in his column that "It is critical that Georgians remain engaged and hold Washington accountable. I urge Georgians to arm themselves with knowledge by re-familiarizing themselves with the U. S. Constitution... ."
I would urge Broun to take his own advice. He should pay particular attention to Article II, Section 1. We, the people, are facing the worst constitutional crisis in the history of the republic. Broun will neither acknowledge the situation or is complicit in it.
To quote from the Constitution: "No Person except a natural born citizen, or a Citizen of the United States, at the time of the Adoption of this Constitution, shall be eligible to the Office of President." Clearly, President Obama does not meet this criteria and our congressional representatives have not upheld their Oaths of Office. Obama might be a "nice guy," but he clearly is not legally eligible to reside in the White House.
