End the 22d Amendment (Barf Alert)
End 22com ^

Posted on 06/01/2009 10:23:16 AM PDT by jazminerose

Join the Grassroots Movement to Make Barack Obama's Third Term Possible!

REPEAL THE 22ND AMENDMENT Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected President of the United States four times. FDR died early in his fourth term after serving three full, successful terms. It was his leadership that brought our great country out of Economic Crisis and War. Congress passed the 22nd Amendment on March 21, 1947 to limit future Presidents to two terms and took the choice out of the hands of the American People, where it belongs.

History has no way of determining what would have happened to the United States if Roosevelt had been limited to two terms and had been unable to lead us out of the Great Depression and through World War II. With our current crisis, the American People need to take back their right to elect the leader of their choice. The task is too large and the risk is too great - we must act now!

FACING CRISIS WITH LEADERSHIP During the last Great Crisis Franklin Delano Roosevelt led America out of the Great Depression and through World War II. Today, Barack Obama leads us through the worst Economic Crisis since the Great Depression and leads the War on Terror. We are wise enough to choose our own leader and to decide how long that leader will serve.

We are still paying the price for FDR's extended stay. The government-dependent mindset he began is destroying this country as we speak.

Call me cynical, but I don’t think the author has another Bush term in mind. Good grief - 0bama hasn’t been in half a year and two terms isn’t enough?

Oh my!

Let's repeal the 22nd Amendment only when a Democrat/Socialist is president and bring it back when Republicans hold office.

That should appease the left.

Term limits—GOOD!
Unlimited power and control—BAD!

Not enough loonatics in America to get this to happen. I predict Obama will be impeached before this term is over if he continues destroying the economy and moral values of America!

I have never referred to the occupant of our White House by any title higher than "former US Senator", but I'll change that if they repeal the 22nd amendment for that thug. At that point, he'll become "Prsident-for-Life obama", and I will give up on the United States of America.

Better worry about his znd term first - eventually onver the next 3 years the American people will see him and his spendaholic cronies for what they are - if not God help us all.

No, it wouldn’t. They won’t quite until the Constitution is gone and elections are Saddam Hussein style, i.e. only one party is allowed on the ballot and anyone who writes in another name will be arrested and imprisoned.

if The One does not self-destruct in a first term I have no doubts there will be a serious push for this.

The MSM aren't going to let the sheeple see the Empty Suit for who and what he is.

As to this, I had a sneaking sad feeling that this sort of thing would get a leg up now that this creature is in office. The DBM (and for a long time, I took DB to mean dimbulb), MSNBC in particular, will play this way up, especially in 2015 after they've aided and abetted him to what is almost the end of his second term.

To be fair, this is coming from the very, very far left. I have to believe that most Democrats don’t want this and it has no chance of ever happening. Still, we must be vigilant.

Before this guy runs for a second term, he should be forced to produce a valid birth certificate. This should be the RNC rally in 2012.

Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected President of the United States four times.

Hitler ruled Germany for 12 years. So what's this assclown's point?

If we repeal the 22nd amendment Obama will have to run against Bill Clinton in 2012.

It would take 2/3rds of the Congress to propose such an Amendment so that is not going to happen. It would also take 2/3rds of the states to vote in favor of it, and that is not going to happen either. This idea is dead on arrival.

From your mouth to God's ear. I mean, you're right about the Constitutional process and what not, but this Empty Suit cares nothing for such things. And I'm sure, if he could twist Detroit's arm this way, what could he do to Congress? (he asked, fearfully)

“And I’m sure, if he could twist Detroit’s arm this way, what could he do to Congress? (he asked, fearfully)”

He could possibly twist every Democratic arm and maybe even a few Republican arms, but never enough Republicans to give him the 2/3rds he needs for passage. Furthermore, since he didn’t win anywhere near 2/3rds of the States in the general election, I don’t see much chance of him getting enough states to give him a 3rd term.

There’s no way they think they’re going the 2/3rds route. They’re going to try to get the 22nd ruled unconstitutional.

They’re laying the groundwork for the day they get their 5th firm vote on SCOTUS. There’s big money behind this. Soros, Fenton, al-Mansour/Saudi money.

would it be a good trade if along with it they repealed the 16th AND the 17th?

“They’re going to try to get the 22nd ruled unconstitutional.”

That is impossible. Scotus can’t find an amendment to the constitution unconstitutional.

If they do, who’s to overrule them? We came damn close to just that in California last week.

But if not this way, some other way. Use your imagination. They have every intention of doing this, and no intention of abiding by the Constitution.

“If they do, who’s to overrule them?”

They’d be impeached in about 5 minutes. You can’t declare something in the constitution invalid unless another amendment is passed which over rules the first one.

They’re going to get around the 22nd Amendment. And they’re not going to get 2/3rds of the states’ approval to do it.

Like I said, use your imagination as to how. They have no intention of going anywhere after eight years. None whatsoever.
