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.

Translated, the dictator for life movement.
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?
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.
Okay but we also get to get rid of the 16th and 17th Amendments
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.
Who’s paying for this? That’s the question should all be asking.
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.
Well, that didn’t take long. I though we would have a year or two before this nonsense started.
if The One does not self-destruct in a first term I have no doubts there will be a serious push for this.
Keep the 22nd. Repeal the 16th.
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.
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.
Heck, I wish we could limit the terms of the SCOTUS. and Congress....
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.
Lets all sign up and Freep that forum.
“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.
In my small circle of friends, we simply call him That Kenyan Goatherder
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?
“Theyre going to try to get the 22nd ruled unconstitutional.”
That is impossible. Scotus can’t find an amendment to the constitution unconstitutional.
Merchandise merchandise merchandise!
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, whos 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.
