Dem House Proposal Would Allow Obama to Run For More Than 2 Terms
Introduced on the very first day of this 113rd congress by Liberal Democrat House Rep. Jose Serrano:
H.J.Res. 15: Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Introduced: Jan 04, 2013 (113th Congress, 2013–2015)
Sponsor: Rep. José Serrano [D-NY15]
Status: Referred to Committee
Before you take up arms against the government, keep in mind this has been proposed before in 2011 and died in committee. It would have to get two-thirds support in both houses, including our radical right-wing hostage House of Representatives, and after that, three-quarters of the states would have to ratify it, or 38 states, which is nearly impossible.
Still, I’m sure there are many Obama zombie idiots out there who would absolutely love for president mompants to be dictator for life and fulfill his role as the second coming of Franklin Roosevelt who served 4 terms. Indeed, much like FDR, Obama could continue his commie war on private industry and shove us farther into recession until we are embroiled in the final, all-consuming APOCALYPSE of the FOURTH WORLD WAR!!!!*
I don’t know what I’m looking forward to more – the giant robot war between China and Japan or the return of Jesus! Probably the Jesus thing.
Snopes says that Representative Serrano, who is one of the more extremist and leftist of House Reps, has introduced this exact same proposal every two years since 1997 for a total of 7 times. This includes those years that George Bush was in office. Also, a host of other representatives have proposed the same legislation about fourteen different times, during Clinton and Bush’s terms, both Democrat and Republican.
Never have these proposals ever come to a vote.
So stop freaking out, please.
