King Obama? Congressman Proposes Eliminating Term Limits for President

Screen shot 2013-01-08 at 11.41.21 AM

How do you transform a Constitutional Republic into a Monarchy? Eliminate term limits for the President.
Americans around the nation were stunned 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

      TERM LIMITS FOR ALL OF THEM! Sorry for shouting…

  • That link, the page has been removed

  • al

    No way, Jose! Pun intended.

  • Razorback1999

    Instead of trying to take away the term limit of the Prisident, How about add one for Congress and Senate!!!

  • I have asked my rep and Senators to introduce an amendment limiting the terms to 2 for any federal elected office. We need a groundswell of activity or this type of manipulation will occuur. Thanks as usual Jan

  • How many people do I have to tell this to??!! Jose Serrano has been doing this every two years since he first became a representative in 1997. That’s twice with Clinton, four times with Bush43, and thrice with Obama. It’s apparently something he just believes in. This is not about Obama. It won’t happen, of course…today’s political climate, coupled with the herculean task it is to amend the Constitution will prevent it from happening.

  • Straight & In The Majority

    30 more years of America’s first Royal Family if we allow this to happen. We just thought $20mill vacations to Hawaii were expensive.

  • ExNoZtoTheY

    and I laughed when Alex Jones reported we’ll see Obama for a 3rd term.

    By then about 80% of the US will be on welfare and loving the entitlements…

  • george

    Jose needs to layoff the glasspipe……

  • Barry

    It will N E V E R H A P P E N… It’ll never make it out of committee.

    • I hope not! The only way to get term limits on Congress is for We the People to VOTE THEM OUT!

      • Yeah, like elections have not been stolen before!

  • … and I’m sure OsamaBama would just love for this to come to being. The last thing we need is for a President to be re-elected for life, especially when his party commits so much vote fraud. He’d win with 110% of the vote.

  • And they pick the most stupid president in the history of the world,Obama

  • Serrano is going to be “O”s court jester,his official clown,off course he will have to vie with Joe Biden for the job,but he stands a good chance…

  • Hadenoughalready……

    You want to stir up a wasps nest….go right ahead you socialist sobs…..

  • charlichad

    The link is broken. I’m contacting my state reps and all that apply too.

    In order for King Obama to run for a 3rd term, he’d have to get the constitution amended. This would be a very all order and even he would find it difficult to accomplish despite his “charisma”, “bribery” and “thuggery” . Here’s what would be required to amend the constitution.

    To get 75% of the state legislatures to go along with his idea would be difficult at best. Particularly in these divided days and times. I don’t think he stands a snow ball’s chance in hell pulling this off. But, we do need to keep our ears to the ground to thwart any effort to this expanding to all the states and getting past the U.S. House of Representatives.

    Article V of the Constitution outlines how to amend (modify) the document. It consists of two steps: proposal and ratification.

    1. Propose An Amendment

    Either Congress or the States can propose an amendment ot the Constitution.

    Both Houses of Congress must propose the amendment with a
    two-thirds vote. This is how all current amendments have been offered.

    Two-thirds of the State legislatures must call on Congress to hold a Constitutional Convention.

    2. Ratify An Admendment

    Regardless of how the amendment is proposed, it must be ratified by the States.

    Three-fourths of the State legislatures must approve of the amendment proposed by Congress, or
    Three-fourths of the states must approve the amendment via
    ratifying conventions. This method has only been used once, to repeal
    Prohibition (21st Amendment).

    Is there a timeline for ratification? The US Supreme Court has held that
    ratification must happen within “some reasonable time after the
    proposal.” Since the 18th Amendment, Congress has set a term of seven
    years for ratification.

    Only 33 amendments have received a two-thirds vote from both Houses of
    Congress. Of those, only 27 have been ratified by the States. Perhaps
    the most visible failure is the Equal Rights Amendment.

    Article V

    The Congress, whenever two thirds of both Houses shall deem
    it necessary, shall propose Amendments to this Constitution,
    or, on the Application of the Legislatures of two thirds of the
    several States, shall call a Convention for proposing
    Amendments, which, in either Case, shall be valid to all
    Intents and Purposes, as Part of this Constitution, when
    ratified by the Legislatures of three fourths of the several
    States, or by Conventions in three fourths thereof, as the one
    or the other Mode of Ratification may be proposed by the
    Congress; Provided that no Amendment which may be made prior to
    the Year One thousand eight hundred and eight shall in any
    Manner affect the first and fourth Clauses in the Ninth Section
    of the first Article; and that no State, without its Consent,
    shall be deprived of its equal Suffrage in the Senate.

    KINDA LIKE VENEZUELA, THEY’RE NOW DISARMED AS WELL!

  • Bad enough we have to endure another 4 yrs of this jerk bastard, and see his smug countenance plastered everywhere, ..but to wade through and fathom the adulation of his admiring throng, is so sickening to most of us! But as long as the love affair by the national media continues, as well as the absolute refusal of Eric Holder to name special prosecutors to investigate and come clean on ‘Fast & Furious’, Benghazi-gate, Solyndra, etc, ..we’ll slip-slide our way down the path to destruction, all to the chorus of worldwide halleluiahs — while we whimper and kick those cans down the road. If we need to go down as a nation to our knees to get our attention, may we go down with a fight! Lord, help us, to be rid of this dictator in the making, and open our eyes to how You want to set us right again, but needing our cooperation. Evil will triumph as long as good men & women do nothing.
