    I was going to call an old buddy in Illinois this evening whom I haven't talked to in a couple of years. (Wasn't home) By way of pleasantry I'd planned to congratulate him on Illinois' second president. Then I thought, 2 presidents- Lincoln who ended slavery for thousands of Americans and Obama who wants to make slaves of all of us.

    Lincoln was born in Kentucky. BO was born where ever, but not Illinios. The only POTUS that was born in Illinios was Reagan...

    Interesting stuff...

    ^ The Truth About Barack’s Birth Certificate Fightthesmears.com quoting FactCheck.org: When Barack Obama Jr. was born on Aug. 4,1961, in Honolulu, Kenya was a British colony, still part of the United Kingdom’s dwindling empire. As a Kenyan native, Barack Obama Sr. was a British subject whose citizenship status was governed by The British Nationality Act of 1948. That same act governed the status of Obama Sr.‘s children. Since Sen. Obama has neither renounced his U.S. citizenship nor sworn an oath of allegiance to Kenya, his Kenyan citizenship automatically expired on Aug. 4, 1982.”


    The following Presidents were born British subjects before the establishment of the United States:

    George Washington
    John Adams
    Thomas Jefferson
    James Madison
    James Monroe
    John Quincy Adams
    Andrew Jackson
    William Henry Harrison
    The following Presidents were born British subjects, as well as American citizens, after the establishment of the United States:

    Chester A. Arthur[9] was born in Vermont, but the 14th Amendment had not yet been ratified and thereby conferred the rights of citizenship-at-birth. Chester Arthur's mother, Malvina Stone Arthur, was born in New Hampshire and a U.S. citizen, but prior to the 1921 Cable Act. Therefore, she was naturalized derivatively to that of her husband prior to Chester's birth. Chester Arthur was not even a U.S. citizen until his father naturalized when he was 14-years old.

    I know neither of them were born in Illinois, but both claimed it as their place of residence when elected. If Sarah Palin were to be elected you can bet she'd be "First President from Alaska" even though she was born in Idaho or someplace.
