President Obama could get 3 terms if H.J.Res 15 abolishes term limits
Examiner.com ^ | 1-5-2013 | Angel Clark

Posted on 01/05/2013 11:04:39 PM PST by Never A Dull Moment

Americans around the nation were shocked Friday 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.

Idiots can file whatever amendments they want. Doesn’t mean they will pass or be ratified.

I really, really wouldn’t be worried by this. Highly unlikely it will even pass the House. 2/3 and all that, and this one wouldn’t even get a majority.

Two points.

1. Don’t think it would pass, don’t 75% of the States need to support amendments?

2. Isn’t there a law that says currently passed law can only apply to the NEXT administration? Isn’t this why even though Xlinton passed dropping SS protection to 10 years, he still gets if for life?

Why don’t they just pass a resolution to rename the country americazuela, or americuba or just have a monarchy declared!I swear the next thing we need to vote for is the removal of every elected official and start from scratch! Every one of these scum that propose removing or diminishing our constitutional rights needs to canned and not receive any pension or benefits.

A comment at the Examiner link points out that Serrano introduces this every two years since 1997.

How does a resolution override the US Constitution?
To change an amendment is an arduous process that takes years.

And the small matter of ratification by the States.
Serrano is one nasty piece of work btw.

South Bronx.
Big rabble rouser for the “puerto ricans under FBI prosecution” (ie, aka macheteros terrorists among others), and the “persecution” of the former Gov. of Puerto Rico, who was indicted for corruption and not re-elected. As well as the so called independence movement in Puerto Rico. Puerto Ricans who live there do not want it-— they pay no federal income taxes (except for PR serving military)

Anyway, Serrano is an irritant.

A lot of things can happen, if the Dems only need 51 votes to pass any legislation.

I’m sorry if my comment was not comprehensive.

I actually doubt this will even get to a floor vote, where it requires 2/3.

Then it would have to pass the Senate, also by 2/3.

Then 3/4 of states. IOW, 13 of the 99 state legislative bodies voting no would sink it.

Ain’t gonna happen.

I’m OK with it, as long as the third term is life in prison for treason.

That’s not true for putting forth a Constitutional Amendment. It takes 2/3 of Congress (both houses) passing the Amendment, first. Then it takes 3/4 of the states passing it (individually) - and usually that time frame is designated to be seven years - or it fails (the time frame usually put in the Constitutional Amendment proposal).

SO ... with those numbers and that procedure - it has exactly a ZERO-CHANCE of being passed ... :-)

José Serrano introduced the exact same bill in early 2009. It went nowhere.

And this is why I continue to post negative comments, saying we've lost the fight for America, and that there's no hope anymore. If/when this passes, you KNOW Obama won't have just three terms. This is to install him for the rest of his life.

Need to offer a counter resolution reducing it to one term with the possibility of 2 extra years if 75% of the country wants it.

Repeal Ammendment? Why bother?

O will just take opportunity of some crisis and declare himself CIC and martial law, postponing any election until the crisis is over....which will never happen....

Or, declare himself President for Life by Executive Order.....

Laws? This administration doesn’t care about laws....unless they take away the freedoms of conservatives and libertarians. This admin has already established that it is above the law. I.e., lawless.

No, first you eliminate the electoral college and make the Presidency a popular vote. Then you eliminate term limits.

Why worry about some silly constitutional amendment? Obama doesn’t let simple details like constitutions get in his way. It’s a “living document”, anyhow.

It still takes 2/3 of Congress (both houses) to put it forth and to the states. And then it takes 3/4 of the states to approve it. That’s why you don’t see a whole lot of Constitutional Amendments in over the last two hundred years - the founding fathers set a high bar for passage.

“2. Isn’t there a law that says currently passed law can only apply to the NEXT administration?”

If they can get an appeal to the 22nd amendment, then they
can make it retroactive as well. Of course Obama could just
dictate it with an E.O. Who would stop him. He did support
an overturn of presidential term limits in Honduras. I
wouldn’t put anything past Obama. Think Linen, Hitler, Mao,
Stallin, etc. with the same values on human life.

I suspect that the islamofascists have many plans to destroy our country and western civilization. Among them is probably a scenario where they use the “ nuclear option” in the Senate to abolish the filibuster, and then the Treaties Clause to implement their power grabs.
