MINNEAPOLIS MN — December 9, 2008 — October Surmise: Might our Constitution bar Bar? by Robert S. Carney, Jr. analyzes political and constitutional issues that impact how a president is chosen.
Carney’s book addresses issues raised by Philadelphia attorney Philip Berg, who has appealed to the Supreme Court the dismissal of his lawsuit challenging President-Elect Barack Obama’s eligibility based on citizenship. Berg claims evidence shows Obama was born in Kenya and is constitutionally ineligible to serve as president.
Responding to Berg’s actions and claims, Carney said, «Both the millions of Americans who have doubts about President-Elect Obama’s eligibility, and the 68 million Americans who voted for him, deserve a thorough and complete answer to the questions and challenges raised by Mr. Berg and others. My book provides such an answer.»
October Surmise aims to examine the constitutional consequences if it turns out that some or all of Berg’s allegations are correct. The theme of October Surmise also seeks to reveal broader questions, including removal from office and how people should behave and act within the structure of a republican form of government. Carney claims that because electors vote for the president, it is essential that the merits of any and all claims regarding eligibility be resolved immediately.
October Surmise is available for sale online at Amazon.com, BookSurge.com and through additional wholesale and retail channels worldwide. A free book sampler download is also available to the general public.
