Check your facts!

Check your facts!

I was just reading an interesting website that claims to help check the facts circulating in the political world.

For example, it is rumored that Barack Obama was not born as a natural U.S. Citizen. The site debunks that as false. It also proves or debunks various claims made by the campaigns.

From FactCheck.org:

“In June, the Obama campaign released a digitally scanned image of his birth certificate to quell speculative charges that he might not be a natural-born citizen. But the image prompted more blog-based skepticism about the document’s authenticity. And recently, author Jerome Corsi, whose book attacks Obama, said in a TV interview that the birth certificate the campaign has is “fake.”

“We beg to differ. FactCheck.org staffers have now seen, touched, examined and photographed the original birth certificate. We conclude that it meets all of the requirements from the State Department for proving U.S. citizenship. Claims that the document lacks a raised seal or a signature are false. We have posted high-resolution photographs of the document as “supporting documents” to this article. Our conclusion: Obama was born in the U.S.A. just as he has always said….” [Read More]

This is all fascinating to me. Especially because I consider a candidates apparent worldview more than I listen to all of the statistics and claims that they make!

Something to think about. I don’t want Obama to get elected, but I don’t need any distorted facts to come to that conclusion. His own statements of his own beliefs are enough to keep me away from voting for him.

One thought on “Check your facts!

  1. totally agree! Why soil someone’s reputation when they can do that themselves…? Also, I think his interview with Pastor Warren last week set him back somewhat and he has a long battle ahead of him – neither did I appreciate his nomination speech which in my opinion bordered dictatorship. Hopefully, Sen. McCain’s choice of Sara Palin will help the cause for the Reps.
