American voters no longer want to “play nice” with politics.

The tidal wave of voter anger against the Democrats in the mid-term elections reached far beyond the halls of Congress that saw the largest number of new Republicans win office since 1948. The legislatures of some 20 states also saw a surge of Republicans getting elected which shifted control away from Democrats. And that control extended to the state governor's offices as well. In Pennsylvania Republicans took control of both houses of the state legislature as well as the governor’s office. In Georgia, Republicans now hold majorities in both house of the legislature as well as "every constitutional statewide office” said Rep. Mark Hatfield.

Now, the new incoming majority of state legislators in Pennsylvania, Georgia, Texas and Arizona are planning to introduce legislation demanding that any candidate for the office of president of the United States must provide documented proof of their eligibility to hold office as defined by the U.S. Constitution in Article 2, Section 1, which states, "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."

The controversy stems from the fact that Barack Hussein Obama II, who was also known by the name Barry Soetoro when he grew up in Indonesia, admitted in his book “Dreams of My Father” that Barack Hussein Obama (Sr) is his bloodline birth father and that he was a citizen of Kenya and a British subject. If this a true statement, and it won't be known for sure until Barack Hussein Obama II shows the American public his long form birth certificate, then Barack Hussein Obama II, a.k.a. Barry Soetoro, is NOT a Natural Born Citizen and therefore is not eligible to be president.

Aside from this not so insignificant issue is the change in attitude seen with new legislators who are no longer holding to concept that all law makers belong to an exclusive country club. Along with the voters anger against big government and uncontrolled spending that sparked the Tea Party movement comes a new view about lawmakers who consider themselves to be a special group of people who are exempt from the laws they make for everyone else.
The old rules of etiquette wherein everyone referred to each other as “my respected colleague” are changing. The voters seem to remember, all too well, the comments made by RINO Senator John McCain at a rally in Minnesota on October 10, 2008 in which he was roundly booed by his Republican supporters after he said: "[Obama's] a decent family man, citizen, that I just happen to have disagreements with on fundamental issues." And then followed this stupid remark by saying: "We want to fight, and I will fight," McCain said. "But I will be respectful. I admire Senator Obama and his accomplishments, and I will respect him." At which point he was booed again.
The 2010 elections saw the Democrat's control of the U.S. Senate reduced from 59 to 41 to 53 to 47 with the election of 6 new Republicans. There is actually some good reason the believe that after the 2012 presidential election, which will see another one-third of the U.S. Senate up for election that a few more Republicans will win that will give them control of both houses of Congress. With that change there may be more law makers who will be receptive to new demands by the presently outraged taxpayers and voters. One change that I sincerely hope to see is an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that has been given wide exposure on the Internet. It reads: "
Proposed 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution:
  "Congress shall make no law that applies to the citizens of the United States that does not apply equally to the Senators and Representatives; and, Congress shall make no law that applies to the Senators and Representatives that does not apply equally to the citizens of the United States ".
Slowly but surely politicians are beginning to realize that they are public servants and not the masters. We are a Constitutional Republic and we are Citizens who are endowed by our Creator with certain inalienable rights. We do not have a monarchy in our country and we do not have different classes of citizenship.
