Did you guys hear that H.J. Res 15 just proposed on Friday a constitutional amendment removing the 2-term term limit from the President?

I saw that one coming. How will we stop it?

Not gonna happen. Things like that must be ratified by 2/3rds (34) of the states. The 22nd amendment is already in the Bill of Rights. Republicans already control 30 of the 50 states.

The good thing is half the states hate the president! LOL! This has absolutely no chance of survival.

It can't be done without a two-thirds affirmative vote in each house, followed by ratification by three-fourths of the states. Still, it could be one of the factors behind the record crowd at our local gun show in Lubbock yesterday!! After all, the Founders' thinking behind the Second Amendment was that the people should be able to protect themselves from an overbearing government (such as the one they had just cast off).

There was a reason that this amendment was added to the U.S. Constitution and that was to prevent just such an attack upon our freedoms. They saw the possibility of a president using that to become
a dictator. They also under stoop that absolute power corrupts absolutely.
Today we see the beginnings of a power grab to destroy our nation by
"Professional Politicians" who have forgot who and why they were elected.

Agreed, James. I believe that reinstating term limits is the greatest change we can make for our country. Now, if anyone can tell me specifically how we do this I'd be interested to hear it.

Not suprised, He is still out fundraising

I had not heard this. I still think it would be a good idea to call the people responsible for this and who has signed on to support it, to let them know that WE know and don't like it one bit. It's true it would probably never fly, but politicians have a way of making these kind of issues sound logical. That's why we have so many stupid progressive laws right now. Remember, socialism sounds great on paper. I will investigate and let you all know who to call/write to.

The idiot who proposed this, actually to repeal the 22cd article of amendment, is Jose Serrano, NY District 15. To track the bill (it just went into committee) go HERE: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/11.... He is one of the most far-left Dems in Congress, also on these committees:

This is a bad idea, but since no one knows what the future holds, no one can know if it would be bad in every situation. It is not, however, a new idea, nor is it exclusive to either party since over the last twenty years short-sighted representatives from both parties have introduced it. It never even got to a vote so fretting about it does seem premature.

One more thing to think about. We have many people in our country who came themselves from other countries or whose parents did. These people do not understand how our Constitution and government work. They are mostly accustomed to either a communist, socialist, or dictatorship-type government, and under those regimes problems are solved quickly. Under our 3-part system, nothing gets done quickly.

And this surprises who? This has been talked about for at least a year. If it doesn't make it he'll just declare martial law and stay till he dies.

Yup, he will be suprised when he gets to Texas, SECEDE

A year? This has been going on for at least twenty years! And it has zero chance of passing. Like accusations that he'll declare martial law, it empty with no basis in reality.
Neither, will Texas secede. There is only one word for secession: it is treason!

I've been watching things happen that I never in a million years thought I would see. I don't put anything past this administration. As far as treason, this president and his cronies have done more to openly sell out this nation than any other that I'm aware of.

The jerk has tried to push this bill through every two years since 1997, no matter who was in office!

2 years 1 month ago

This will not happen...we are sinking lower into the abyss with O and his communist cronies, but this might just stir some lefties to reconsider just how "wonderful" O really is!

Obvious absurdities do not serve the conservative cause.

What do you mean, Kendall?

2 years 1 month ago

I mean calling Obama a communist. You don't have to like him and God knows you don't have to agree with him. But no way is he a communist and calling him one makes us look hysterical and ignorant.

2 years 1 month ago

Would you call him a socialist, Kendall? Just curious.

2 years 1 month ago

I agree that speaking only true things well will give us a better image. :)

The actual definition of socialists is not widely agreed on, so I would avoid that term. I personally believe he is a social democrat. By that I mean roughly the same part of the spectrum as Western European center-left parties. This opens up more discussion than practical in short posting like these.

I can't believe people can't see that he is a Marxist socialist to the core. All one has to do is read his own books, check out his mentors growing up and while in college, and study everything he has done while in office from senator on up to the White House. The American Communist Party threw their full support behind him. Venzuela's Chavez, Russia's Putin, most of the communist/socialist/Marxist leaders of the world support him.
