This bill seeks to lay the groundwork for Obama serving more than 2 terms. A la Hugo Chavez.

THIS IS NOT A JOKE! IT'S A REAL BILL!

The only way the loon will last more than one term is if the his loon-O-ticks get control of the census and also grant our illegals voting status.

Oops, guess we ARE in trouble!

Yep. That’s what they want. He’s already acting like a dictator. I won’t be surprised to see this go forward.

I thought this was nothing new. Besides, IIRC, an amendment would have to be ratified by 2/3rds of the states before it could take effect. I think the last attempt was the Equal Rights Amendment and it didn’t fly too well.

3/4’s of the states, not 2/3’s.

The real reason for the Second Amendment is becoming more and more apparent everyday.

I do not think you can get 2/3rds of the states to agree on anything.

I hope I am right.

Rep. José Serrano is a notorious Castro, Chavez, and other commies supporter.

Serrano is a crooked, thieving, bribe taking Marxist.

This guy does this every session. He started in 1999 and refiles every time Congress enters a new session.

Not that it might not happen, but it’s not like something Obama is doing.

No joke. I am alarmed at the speed at which the left is working to consolodate all poweer and secure all elements of this country. They are moving fast and in multi directions.

The census

Fairness doctrine

Repeal of the 22nd Amendment

Putting the US under the International Court

Wanting to try Don Rumsfeld

There is no way that Zero can get 38 states in just under 8 years, there are still enough solidly red states.

Plus deep down the ‘Rats would be terrified of the prospect of a “young Reagan” (Sarah Palin or Bobby Jindal) getting in one day.

The only reason this doesn’t terrify me is because it will never pass. However, it shows the tyranny we are up against.

He’s already acting like a dictator.

If he acheives that goal I predict he will suffer the same fate as many dictators throughout history.

And that's about as non-violent as I can post here.
