H.J.Res.15 - Proposing 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.
I’d be in favor of limiting every President to ONE term.
Sponsor: Rep. Serrano, Jose E. [D-NY-15] (Introduced 01/04/2013)
I would say a 1 six year term..
Hell I don’t want the current congress anywhere near the constitution.
Chances of passing: 0... Unless 2/3 of both houses of Congress and 3/4 passes it. Which is highly unlikely..
30 of 50 (or is it 57) governors are Republican. This must be a constituent service item to file this bill.
A counter-proposal: An Amendment modifying life-time tenure for federal judges to make they stand for a retention vote every 4 years (held in the off-year cycle election). This would mitigate the problem of insulating judges from having to run for office, yet would allow the voters to eject a judge who sufficiently offended them with his/her rulings.
I think Democrats do this every time they get a second-term Democrat in. I know they did it for Clinton also. In this upside down world we live in though...
The GOP holds all 3 branches in 24 states right now so its dead.
Damned communist bastards sure love their dictators.
It won’t even make it pass Congress...
Sponsored by a Dimocrat. That got my attention.
It won’t matter at the rate the Constitution is being trampled on. TOTUS and Autopen are gettting things done. Forward.
6 months terms would be better ~
Boehner is probably scampering over to the White House as we speak for a private discussion on the bill.
I like to see the election of Senators go back to the state legislatures. And add in, term limits for members of Congress.
It looks real. H O W E V E R ...
Article V of the Constitution clearly indicates that, while either the states or Congress can propose amendments to the Constitution, ONLY the states, NOT Congress, have the power to ratify it. And thanks to Obama’s efforts to divide the country, I just don’t see such a proposed amendment to the Constitution getting the necessary 3/4 states support to ratify it, particularly since the ratification process isn’t necessarily based on the popular vote which would make it easier for the Democrats to work voting fraud.
Also, since Article V is arguably the best kept secret of the unconstitutionally big federal government, I’m not so sure that DC lawmakers really want voters to find out about Article V.
