Dem Resolution to Abolish 22nd Amendment Could Give Obama 3rd Term

Americans around the nation were shocked Friday as they heard about H.J.Res. 15. H.J.Res 15 proposes an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President. Rep. José Serrano (D- NY15) introduced the controversial joint resolution on Friday, the second day of the 2013 legislative session.

The last President to serve more than two terms was Franklin D. Roosevelt. Roosevelt served three full terms as President and was elected to a fourth term. Roosevelt died 83 days into his fourth term in office.

Congress passed the Twenty-second Amendment on March 21, 1947. The required number of states ratified it in 1951. There have been numerous attempts to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment, including a previous attempt by Rep. José Serrano. Rep. Serrano attempted to repeal the Twenty-second Amendment with H.J.Res. 5 in 2009.

    The 22nd Amendment must never be repealed! Especially now, not with the Magical Marxist in the White House!

    However, I have seen absolutely no inclination of Obama or the Democrat Party in general to follow the Constitution or the Bill of Rights so I am sure that Obama is already, as far as they are concerned President for Life!

    What country do I live in now? It reminds me more and more the old East Germany every day!

      Socialism and its laws are for the people, and dont apply to the socialist lawmakers.
      They want to disarm us, so they can control us, while forcing us to pay for their armed guards.
      They force us into socialized medicine, while exempting themselves and maintaining their gold-plated healthcare packages.
      They force us into the Ponzi scheme called “social security”, while exempting themselves and maintaining their outrageous taxpayer-funded, luxury retirement packages.
      At every turn, they rob us of our earnings and freedoms and enrich themselves and expand their power over every aspect of our lives.
      That is tyrrany far beyond what prompted the Founders to throw off the bonds of their oppression by the king of England.
      They say “patience is a virtue,” and that may be true to a point, but I say patience, carried to the extreme of sacrificing one’s freedom and well-being is foolish.

      • Jan Dinkins says:

        Patience, in the face of corruption and tyranny, becomes complacency and acquiescence which leads to servitude.

        • mallen11 says:

          You are absolutely right…
          It has been written: Dispensations of Nations
          People go from bondage to spiritual faith
          From Spiritual faith to great courage
          From courage to Liberty
          From liberty to abundance
          From abundance to selfishness
          From selfishness to complacency
          From complacency to apathy (where we are now)
          From apathy to dependence
          From dependence back to bondage

          A nation without absolute truth is a nation without solutions.

        You have just described people who should be stood against the wall and shot for treason against the United States.

        • mallen11 says:

          And yet nothing is being done. Those in power in WDC like their lives too much to try to change anything for those of us who are keeping them there. How ridiculous is that on our part?

        • Remington 870 says:

          Put the Dems & Reps in a giant bag, shake it up, and they will all fall out together. They are birds of a feather who flock together and ‘flock the American Public as well.’

        • mallen11 says:

          I join you in that assessment of our politicians.

        • Wayne_1958 says:

          I agree with you, I have called and sent e-mails to my state senators and congressmen, They either don’t answer me or I get some generic bullshoot letter that dances all around the topic. They are in this together and believe in their minds that we are pond scum and they are some sort of gods to do with us and our property as they wish. They are real close to bringing about a change that they will not like ! I believe we should remove all of them from office and take all of their pensions, medical benefits, and their properties to pay down our so called national debt, And this includes from the retired politicians. As far as the national debt goes, I did not get to vote on any of their spending increases including vacations or their wage increases so how is this BS a national gebt ? I think it is a politicians debt former and present so let them pay it !

        • kris littlefield says:

          I know what you mean. I don’t think they even see our letters. I think they have their office staff print out a cover letter and send it to the respective return addresses on the envelopes. How sad is that. That happened to me with my Congressman. I wouldn’t vote for him now for local dog catcher. I also sent e-mails. They must be on automatic delete.

        • mallen11 says:

          Right, and they are not interested in hearing our complaints about THEIR decisions since we are not smart enough to know better.

        • mallen11 says:

          Of course we are living in a dream world to ever see that happen but we certainly need to clean house and get some people who believe in this country and not themselves to take office. There is no honor in WDC and We the People can’t even vote them out. Our only hope is for God to bring judgment on this land before people will wake up to the fact that they need to think as government “under God” and not under people.

        • El Kabong says:

          Judgment has started on 9/11/01. We were warned, but at the time, George W. Bush and Tom Daschle mentioned coming back bigger and stronger (because we are the United States of America and we can). Also, the American people in general took comfort in that idea and attitude. That is not what God was looking for. We were supposed to repent and humble ourselves, but instead we defied God. The worst is yet to come. The dollar crash (hyperinflation), EMP attack either from solar flare, or enemy attack, a predicted earthquake that could affect everyone from Michigan to Florida, just to name a few.

        • mallen11 says:

          I totally agree. It was all the efforts of man and God was left out and still is.

        • El Kabong says:

          Right, Mrs. Mallen. And something SHOULD be done. Where is the outrage?? Still too many of the ‘Monday Night Football’, ‘American Idol’, ‘Honey Boo Boo’ watching crowd does not pay much attention to politics outside of the few weeks leading up to Election Day. They are unaware of what is happening, and they are unaware that they are unaware.

        • Cbrown says:

          You’ve seen too many movies.

        • Remington 870 says:

          You are correct. In the real world of United States politics, we encounter one legal manuever after another until whatever issue was ‘the issue’, is now forgotten for a new issue. Thanks for the reality check.

        Your post is right on the money, Sir. You have articulated the blatant hypocrisy that has run rampant in the Federal and many State and local governments.

        The only thing between our country and Tyranny, is our Constitiution. This makes me sick, disgusted, and to see how pathetic at least 52% of the people in this country are, to have put Obama in office.

        • mallen11 says:

          Remember the newspaper publisher, Joseph Goebbals under Hitler? This is what he said…
          If I can get control of the press I have control over this country. He helped to maintain that power. No one knew who Hitler was until it was too late. Inflation was very high and it took a wheelbarrow of money to buy bread. He was full of lies and deception. Who does this remind us of?

        • caskinner says:

          True!!! I believe that voter fraud put Obambam in office along with the people that want something for nothing.

        • mallen11 says:

          I agree and something needs to be done about it. They have proven it to be true by the percentage of people who voted over the number registered to vote. Why wasn’t there a review of the votes? What angers me the most is that dishonesty, fraud, cheating is just passed over. They tell us about it but nothing gets done. What can We the People do?
          My conclusion is that nothing will ever be done until a large number of people are willing to turn back to God, learn His ways and apply them to their lives. Then and only then will God help to change this country back to its greatness. God is our only hope. Man has not and is not and cannot do anything on their own to change it.
          Do not lift up your horn on high; do not speak with insolent pride. For not from the east, nor from the west, nor from the desert comes exaltation; But God is the Judge; He puts down one and exalts another. Ps 75:5-7

    • With all the executive orders he has already passed, making him self president and dictator for life is the next executive order he will declair.

    • Shane says:

      This won’t pass. It’s sad that liberals worship their politicians instead of God.

      • dshevlin says:

        20% or better in congress are known communist party members.

        • kris littlefield says:

          Not all of that 20%. I know one of the people on that list and have known her most of my life and she is not a communist or a socialist but I know she is afraid because someone put her on that list. That tells me that these socialists, or whoever it is that is trying to take over this country, are also trying to get rid of our reps who are still true democrats.

      As I said before – the 22nd Amendment does need to be amended. It has to include two-term limits to EVERY elected office.

    • john u says:

      Who the hell is José Serrano? Where has he done, where has he come from and what pray God is his agenda? Just totally unbelievable!!! What in the world is going on with these so-called public servants? Again, totally unbelievable!!

  2. Carl Stevenson says:

    Not just no, but HE’LL NO!

  3. Patty says:

    You goofy old guys a d gals. This has been written here many times. Any congressmen can introduce any goofy piece of legislation. Many do and this is one. No it takes a lot to get or repeals a constitutional admen tent. It is more than silly to write about. Better to work on mpeaching Obama. This guy has about as much hope for success as this and a lot less supporters. Your party appears extremely out of touch emphasizing g something like this. Get over it.

    How about we just enforce the constitution, especially the eligibility section.

  7. caskinner says:

    Leave the Constitution alone. The 22nd amendment is for the protection of the people

    • Lyle Kelley says:

      Any thing about our Constitution that’s for the people is so only when politicians want it to be.

    • DrAnalog says:

      So is the 2nd. Actually, the commies in our country would love to overturn the entire Constitution. If anything, the 2nd amendment shoul apply to ALL elected officials.

      • SNAKEDOCTOR says:

        The day will come when we will have to face a terrible resistance. Will you be ready to defend your Constitution and your 2nd and 1st Amendments? It is coming at us like a .308. I suggest you prepare for a long battle for Freedom again. God Bless America,,,,,,Again like Wild Bill for America allways says.

  9. DrBillLemoine says:

    And once there was Harold Stassen who perpetually ran for president, Jasper Mclevy the last Socialist Mayor in the nation elected 22 years in Bridgeport CT, and Ron Paul who had no chance to be elected president–there are always outliers, people who do or say the unusual in politics. Serrano is another outlier whose suggestion will never get anywhere.

    • SNAKEDOCTOR says:

      Dr. I sure hope so, but you know how these fools think. Remember the biggest Militia is the people of this Country. How many will stand up. Sportsmen and women in America are the largest standing Army in the world here. We just have to stand up and not take any crap from people like Serrano. What an idiot!

  10. The amendment to abolish the 22nd Amendment is just a smoke screen. I believe that Obama intends to find an excuse to declare martial law and become dictator.

  11. Lyle Kelley says:

    The 22nd amendment can be repealed or Ovomit can declare martial law, indefinitely, and he’ll stay in white house.

  12. palmreader says:

    What is going with our country, have we all gone completely insane. We need this so called man ( muslem, communist) out of office now, not have him there any longer. He is crazy and wants to take over the world and will succeed if we don’t step up to the plate and do something about it. I don’t know how but I am sure someone out there knows how. And get rid of his cronies, his followers like Pelosi and Biden to speak of some. May God help us all.
