Background Checks For Presidential Candidates

Arizona – -(Ammoland.com)- The lamestream media told you:
There’s another presidential debate tonight, live at seven, don’t miss it! There’s a presidential caucus… polling coming… talking heads… this candidate hates that one… look at the wives… we don’t objectify women… did you hear what that guy said today… blah, blah, blather, blather.
The Uninvited Ombudsman notes however that:
In light of recent revelations about political candidates at every level, the “news” media has continued to refuse to insist on background checks for people running for political office.
Critics point out that from the president on down, these people will have to handle top secret documents and information. The public should know before they vote if the people they’re electing can pass a security clearance.
Otherwise, the elections are fraudulent — the people aren’t qualified to do what they’re being elected to do.
Another top issue is the eligibility question hanging over the man who was born in a foreign country to a Cuban father. Three other hopefuls also had direct foreign upbringing that probably disqualified them under the Article II instructions in the U.S. Constitution.
Article II requires a person to be a “natural born Citizen” to be eligible to become president, defined at the time of the Founding as having two citizen parents and being born on U.S. soil.
Background checks have become increasingly popular in American life. Even routine jobs for corporations, health care, education, transportation and many government positions require background checks, along with more traditional functions, like eligibility for various firearm permits and grade-school teaching.
Security clearance background checks for elected office is a concept whose time has come.
