Enumerated concepts

Arizona continues its quest to become the Alabama of the Southwest (and ironically, Alabama is now the Arizona of the South) by passing a bill requiring presidential candidates to prove their natural born citizenship before being placed on the state's ballots.

I see no problem with this. Nothing wrong with a set of legal requirements applied equally to each candidate. You show a birth certificate (as Obama and Hawaii have repeatedly done) and that's the end of the story.
The names of candidates can be kept off the ballot if the secretary of state doesn't believe the candidates met the citizenship requirement.
