repealing the 22nd amendment
I came across this bill proposed to repeal the 22nd amendment. The 22nd amendment is the amendment that limits the term of president to two terms.
here's the link
I have my own little world. But it's OK...they know me here.
I hear the angry screams of people to long wronged the clang of pitch forks and shovels beside me and see the blinding flashes of torches. Soon the warped "rulers" will reap what they have sown.
Great now some commie loving Democratic Representative in NY wants the US to have a commie dictator for life, Obama just like Chavez in Venezuela. Geez how crazy can a Dem Congressman from NY get. Wonders never cease. Thank you, thank you very much

"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them. It is not to inaugurate new programs, but to cancel old ones that do violence to the Constitution."
Don't need congress to pass the bill. Just appoint a term limit tzar to dictate who stays in office and for how long..

From what I read on Wikipedia (take it with a grain of salt):
On January 4, 2013, Rep. José Serrano once again introduced H.J.Res. 15 proposing an Amendment to repeal the 22nd Amendment, as he has done every two years since 1997
I agree, scary if anyone was to succeed in the repeal.
Congressmen/women give themselves raises. Seems to me there should be an extra executive order laying around that El Presidente could exercise to accomplish perpetuity.

These people couldn't SPELL history without help. They want what they want and F the rest of us. When the morons of this country figure that out, IF they ever do, maybe this country can be saved. Maybe.........
