Just when you thought the field of candidates for president in 2012 was full, a national radio talk-show host is now in the race, claiming Barack Obama is not even eligible for office because he has presented a forged birth certificate to the nation.
Laurie Roth from Washington state is running not as a Republican, but as a patriot and conservative on the American Independent Party ticket. She says she’s already on the ballot in California, and will take steps to make sure her name is listed in the other 49 states.
She is a singer/songwriter with five CD albums to her credit, one track which landed her in Billboard’s top 40 ranks and on the cover of Cash Box Magazine. She holds a Ph.D. in counseling and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
On her list of issues, she highlights her contention President Obama is not even eligible office.
“He has presented a verified forgery of his long-form birth certificate on April 27, 2011,” she said.
Among other complaints against Obama, Roth says the president forced an unconstitutional health-care bill, sued and stood against his own governors, threatened and targeted coal plants for closure, breached the War Powers Act of 1973 by putting America into an illegal war in Libya, insulted and turned against Israel, and has failed to secure the nation’s borders.
As far as her goals as president, Roth says, “I will overhaul our entire tax system.”
She’s looking to institute a federal 2 percent point-of-purchase tax she believes will create millions of jobs.
“No group will be exempt,” she says, claiming annual collected revenues would be in the range of $10 to $20 trillion, “while citizens are liberated from massive, controlling tax oppression.”
Another pledge is to become totally energy independent in four years.
“America will be the largest exporter of energy in the world,” says Roth. “Disconnect from OPEC. Employ 20 million people in energy infrastructure jobs [including] natural gas, oil, nuclear, solar and alternative fuels.”
Roth also says she’s looking to restore America’s international relationships and image, Institute fair- trade agreements and stand against Islamic fundamentalism and radicalism.
She’s also unabashedly promoting Judeo-Christian values.
“This includes our nation’s historical strength from God and the Holy Bible – including Christian principles – prayer, freedom, exceptionalism and supporting a movement away from regulation, taxation and litigation. Those who disagree are not assailed.”
Her online biography notes, “She is equally at home on horseback or motorcycle and enjoys scuba diving. She loves to watch NASCAR Nextel Cup Racing and has always liked vintage cars. Her favorite food is … well … just a hamburger, but with the works!”
She’s just published a book titled, “The People’s President,” outlining her stances.
