Dem congressman moves to abolish presidential term limits

Democratic Rep. Jose Serrano of New York reintroduced a bill in Congress Friday to repeal the 22nd Amendment, which would end term limits on the U.S. presidency.

H.J. Res. 15 proposes “an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President,” according to the Daily Caller.

The move prompts a sobering thought: Barack Obama, president for life.

Although, with Hillary Clinton in the bullpen and rumors that Michelle Obama may be considering a run for U.S. Senate in Illinois as a primer for her own White House run, America could realize a continuation of Obama’s far-left “progressive” agenda for some time to come.

To be fair, Serrano has proposed similar resolutions during both President Bill Clinton’s administration and President George W. Bush’s term in office. This is his second proposal since Obama took office.

Franklin D. Roosevelt was the only president to have served more than two terms. The 22nd amendment was passed by Congress in 1947, a few years after his death.

As the Daily Caller noted, President Woodrow Wilson also considered a third run before eventually dropping out.

Wilson is considered the father of the progressive movement, and Roosevelt also embraced the progressive mindset, having proposed a second bill of rights that would have guaranteed Americans employment, housing, medical care and education, among other things.

And Obama is certainly following in the footprints of these pioneers. Perish the thought!

    How about they pay them an average wage and make them pay for medical the same way we have to and when they lose their job they lose their pay ! no indefinite payday .! and when they retire draw SSI like everyone else! they are supposed to be serving the public, not the other way around !

    Before you get too steamed up and start yelling about an Obama-for-life plot, it would be good for you to know that this Congressman has introduced similar legislation eight times already, dating back to 1997. It never goes anywhere and can't go anywhere, so move on to real dangers instead of being drawn by the big shiny thing.

    Think of of a Dictators way he rules his country. Even countries who have Presidential Dictators. The two term limits is referred to as a safety valve. The only time this can be removed is during war inside the USA itself under marshal law. But look at this:

    I heard a couple of terms that sums up why everyone wants to disarm America. And put a Dictator in power.

    Run on Stocks – Years ago some investors made millions in stocks on phony claims that some items would be outlawed and that only those bought by a certain date would not be illegal. Look at stock market and who is profiting from banning gun sales.

    Lambs to Slaughter – I read in a book once that if America was disarmed then no shot would have to fired to take it over. They already own the USA by buying up key investments and people who would do anything for money. Which countries would benefit from walking over a disarmed nation. Historical fact it already happen before.

    Scorch Earth – This is a viable plan actually created by the USA back in the Cold War Days. Our own nukes used against American people who deny national leaders. Presidential key codes exist. Back to the idea of using DRONES to kill Americas by White House members on people marked dangerous. But why just kill one. A drone can not just take out a small target yet. Unless they use Project Dragonfly.

    How many more facts are out there? Overlooked or hidden in plain site. Movies were used to hide events before that occurred in real life.

    I have secret documents that prove this Serrano is an illegal alien.

  5. Carl ring says:

    Yes , I will vote for that !

    1. James H. says:

      Problem is, if our vote counted I would vote also but, they WILL NOT VOTE for anything that is going to cost them. The only VOTE that counts (and I'm not sure about that) is the VOTE for their opponent! In other words, vote them out of office. That won't work, they manage to bring home the bacon to their state and for that the state residents will keep on voting for them, screw the other 49 states. Our election system now sucks!

  6. James H. says:

    ALSO, any executive order issued by the president should be required to be voted on by BOTH houses of Congress with a 2/3 majority. Keep congress in control, the only thing they control now is how many power naps they take.

  7. James H. says:

    AMEN ! ! ! ! ! !

  8. Beth B. says:

    Amen. I don't know which is worse – him in office for the rest of his life or Michelle running. Pretty scary stuff.
