An Open Letter to Congressmen and Senators

Dear Representative/Senator,

Please consider that these questions may be the most important ones you are ever asked.

You, sir, will soon be part of a very crucial decision as Congress meets to certify the electoral vote. The purpose of this letter is to ask that you give your part in this decision the attention it is due. The decision you make and the action you take, I and many others believe, will impact the course of our Nation and the world on a profound scale. As you thoughtfully approach this decision to act on the information before you,

Will you do what is right?

This is the oath that all Congressmen have taken; will it be honored?

"I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter: So help me God."

Will you do what is right?

Will someone demand specific answers to these questions before it is too late?
Can Mr. Obama prove he is a natural born citizen? Was he adopted by Lolo Soetoro? Will he immediately release his college admission applications? Will he release all medical records? Mr. Obama chooses to ignore these very reasonable requests. These questions must be answered before the electors' vote is certified.

Will you do what is right?

Are those who are calling for the proof of constitutional requirements on the fringe?
If they are, they are in good company. They have the signers of the Declaration of Independence and those from the Boston Tea Party as compatriots and their cause is in every way just as important.

"God who gave us life, gave us liberty. And can the liberties of a nation be thought secure when we have removed their only firm basis, a conviction in the minds of the people that these liberties are a gift from God? That they are not to be violated, but with His wrath? Indeed I tremble for my country when I reflect that God is just, and that His justice cannot sleep forever." (Excerpts are inscribed on the walls of the Jefferson Memorial in the Nation's capital) From Jefferson's Notes on the State of Virginia,Query XVIII, 1781.

Will you do what is right?

Can Americans derive hope from knowing the Constitution of the United States will be respected?

Leaders must uphold the original intent of the Constitution and the rule of law. If we as citizens and you as our leaders will remain faithful, our greatest days will be ahead.

Will you do what is right?

Is it proper to establish a candidate's eligibility without full and open disclosure on the part of the candidate himself?

Had Mr. Obama simply followed his own admonishments throughout his campaign that he espoused during the John Roberts confirmation hearings all of this could have been put to rest long ago. These are the words of Senator Obama:

"Let me also say that I remain distressed that the White House during this confirmation process, which overall went smoothly, failed to provide critical documents as part of the record that could have provided us with a better basis to make our judgment with respect to the nomination. This White House continues to stymie efforts on the part of the Senate to do its job. I hope with the next nominee who comes up for the Supreme Court that the White House recognizes that in fact it is its duty not just to the Senate but to the American people to make sure we can thoroughly and adequately evaluate the record of every single nominee who comes before us "

Even if Mr. Obama had never spoken these words the principle would remain the same. A position of responsibility and authority cannot be bestowed on a person who will not submit to the prevailing law. Congress must enforce these requirements. Will you do what is right?

Have you or any official government entity personally viewed an actual physical copy of the long form original birth certificate?

Was it signed by the attending physician at a Honolulu hospital? What was the name of the hospital? What was the name of the attending physician? Can you affirm under penalties of perjury that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii?

Can you state under penalties of perjury that Barack Obama was not born somewhere other than in Hawaii? Was the original birth certificate on record submitted as part of the 1911 Hawaii Birth Certificate program, which allowed parents of children residing in Hawaii who were over one year of age to submit alternate birth documentation to the Department of Health and still be called an "original birth certificate"?

If in fact you cannot verify that Barack Obama was born in Hawaii, or that he was not born somewhere other than Hawaii, then what records do you believe would establish with 100% certitude where Barack Obama was or may have been born?

Will you do what is right?

Do you make decisions based on principle or based on how you judge the outcome?
On January 8, 2008 a decision will be made as to whether or not Mr. Obama will become America's next President. To question his eligibility would require a bold man to make a bold stand. A decision to make a just stand would demand our Constitution be honored with compliance.

[Title 3, United States Code, Section 15] … Upon such reading of any such certificate or paper, the President of the Senate shall call for objections, if any. Every objection shall be made in writing, and shall state clearly and concisely, and without argument, the ground thereof, and shall be signed by at least one Senator and one Member of the House of Representatives before the same shall be received. When all objections so made to any vote or paper from a State shall have been received and read….

Will you do what right?

Some men's decisions are guided by their Creator. Are yours?

James 4:17 "Therefore, to one who knows the right thing to do and does not do it, to him it is sin."

Will you do what is right?

May God bless you and protect you,

David LaRock
