The Ventura County Tea Party conducted a poll of member views on the “Obama” eligibility issue, in April, 2012. By a vote of the membership and approval by the Steering Committee, we overwhelmingly approved the following resolution.
Whereas, many of our members have pursued or supported the efforts to investigate the eligibility for office of the presumed President of the United States and whereas, the Steering Committee responded to a membership survey expressing their views on the matter authorizing supportive action ……
It is resolved that The Ventura County Tea Party (VCTP) does hereby officially endorse and support the efforts of the Surprise, AZ Tea Party in initiating this Investigation. VCTP also supports Sheriff Joe Arpaio in his organizing, commencing, and supporting this Investigation and the “Cold Case Posse” and its Chief Investigator Mike Zullo
VCTP recognizes and highly commends the efforts expended and the courage shown by those involved who, in doing so have, and continue to incur explicit and implicit threats, scorn, demonization, and ostracism directed at them. No other official investigation has been undertaken- so this is a totally unique accomplishment.
By helping to remove any remaining doubts that eligibility has not been proven by the representatives of the presumed President, challengers are better supported in their allegations that he is ineligible and as such should be disqualified.
VCTP calls upon all American institutions to seriously consider the merits of the Investigation and act responsibly to pursue proper and full reinstatement of the Constitution of the United States in protecting the sanctity of the Office of the President of the United States. Said institutions include all government officials at all levels, Democratic Party, Republican Party, news media, NGO’s, churches and civic organizations, other Tea Parties and liberty organizations. VCTP calls upon all of its supporters to educate, recruit allies and challenge leaders in these institutions to act.
VCTP urges the Cold Case Posse to fully cooperate with legal initiatives; lawsuits, procedural, and prosecutorial efforts to act upon the evidence being presented, as well as judicial organizations which have rendered decisions rife with errors in fact and law needing rectification, as well as those Secretaries of State who have intentionally or unintentionally obfuscated, delayed and redefined the interpretation and enforcement of the Constitution and statutory law.

6. Your additional comments: (some people sent comments)
do for ALL candidates
support others doing heavy lifting
Your call, but purely local efforts may not generate much media 'juice"
no meeting yet
Outrageous that “Obama” was elected and still enabled. He needs to go now and be disqualified and convicted on eligibility grounds to void all his decisions. Letting him off with an election is not good enough.
Encourage other tea parties. Do whatever it takes
(oust him) sooner the better. "Latest votes are now counted in Spain" has me worried.
No support from thse who should be doing it to get him out
All-out effort to oust him now or in election, if that fails.
We encourage other Tea Parties/Liberty organizations to conduct similar polls.
meeting up to you.
We absolutely have to get BHO out of office as soon as possible and immediately undo all of the unconstitutional and illegal harm he has done to America.
VC Sheriff will not investigate
"Our government is not of the political elite, by the political elite and for the political elite. It is of the people, by the people and for the people."
Paradoxical Quote of the Decade - by Ben Stein "Fathom the hypocrisy of a government that requires every citizen to prove they are insured....... but not everyone must prove they are a citizen. Now, let that settle in awhile........
I continue to push the Article II, Section1, Clause 5 ineligibility issue in our group, and in all my social networking. Beyond that it will take a committment of sorts from any or all that are working on this.
I will not support or endorse any future attempts that mix the Constitutional issue with the Criminal issues (i.e. document fraud, LFBC, SSN, Passport, Selective Service AP, et al), because all destroys the credibility of its individual parts, and it is just poor legal strategy. Of course what would escalate and solidify this would be even one state victory at keeping Barry Soetoro off the 2012 ballot.
