“HJ 15 IH

113th CONGRESS

1st Session

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.

IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

January 4, 2013

Mr. SERRANO introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary

JOINT RESOLUTION

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.

Resolved by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled (two-thirds of each House concurring therein), That the following article is proposed as an amendment to the Constitution of the United States, which shall be valid to all intents and purposes as part of the Constitution when ratified by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years after the date of its submission for ratification:

‘Article–
‘The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.’.”

This is something we should all pay a great deal of attention to, spread the news, make a fuss.

Here’s a link which tracks the status of the proposition:

The likelihood of this being passed is extremely low, although entirely possible and not all that outlandish considering all of the laws being passed today. If they will pass the National Defense Authorization Act(NDAA), they could pass this.

I’m assuming they would still have to be elected, so the republicans should have our back on this (for now at least)

Disturbing nonetheless

@justinr, Thats assuming the election is legitimate. Which i firmly believe, it is not.

This will probably go largely unnoticed like the NDAA did until it was passed and brought to light. I wonder if this pertains to Obama serving more then two terms…

@iamty, @justinr, Really disturbing. This has been the norm since George Washington. Every president had stepped down after 2 terms because it was simply the right thing to do, and they didn’t want to seem like tyrants. The only reason the amendment even needed to be created was to put the 2 term tradition in writing after FDR went wild.
I don’t think I could handle another term of Obama.

@peyotecult, there are so many minorities (I’m not racist, or discriminative, or anything else people might call me) that are verbally expressing how they believe Obama is their damn savior, who will probably love nothing more than to keep him in his office longer than normal. And that’s what freaking me out, just because he’s the first African American president does not mean his intentions are better than anyone else’s

@justinr I completely agree with you on this. I was in favor of what Ron Paul stood for because of all the candidates he seemed to have the ideas and things that I share ( not all but some ). My family is republican and they felt that when it came down to it, I was supposed to vote for Romney just because he was republican and the fact that Obama wasn’t doing much (which can be argued). I believe that just because he is African American skin tone that he is valued by the minorities who have been put down by the ‘man’ for so long. Obamas done more harm then good with the National Def. Bill, Asking Army generals if they will be willing to kill american citizens, the recent drone talk of killing citizens. My friend truly believes that Obama is the anti-christ and he will bring a lot more harm, I didn’t give it too much thought because of such reasons but with this it makes me wonder what else this puppet democracy has in plan for us.

Honestly I don’t like the idea that a president can only stay for two terms. I mean the fact that Obama knows he can’t get reelected means he doesn’t have to worry about popularity anymore. This would almost be a way of holding him accountable, assuming he would want to be re-elected. And if the people want the same person to stay in office, why shouldn’t they have that choice if the president has proven himself worthy.

In a perfect world I think there should be no constraints as to how long a good president should stay in office as long as we still get to decide every four years. However the way our current system works I understand it would be a bad idea, I mean with a two party system, would that leave any room for a new member of the same party? And if the media/voting system is as corrupt as it seems, there could be some terrible consequences. I’m leaning towards being worried about this, mainly because I don’t see why this is going so quietly behind our backs. Why hasn’t the media mentioned that they are trying to add an amendment, that’s kind of a big deal.

@tlrlittle, I haven’t thought of it like that

Interesting…

This could possibly lead to a BALLER of a president who constantly gets re-elected because of how awesome he runs things. Although I feel what others are worried about is the potential “rigging” of elections by the people in charge of the funds/interest groups etc.

@justinr, that video is pretty much the reason i made this post. Ive never made a post before but after seeing the post about the video, watching the video, and reading a comment that turned me onto the House Resolution i decided this would be a good first post.

But about the video, that shit was fucking outrageous. The part that really shook me was when the CNN feed “cut out” during the interview of the soldier.

@iamty, That scares me legitimately, as even if the election isn’t bogus, people are very capable of voting in complete fucking idiots (Bush). And now they can do it, over and over and over.

Jesus, first NDAA, now CISPA is coming back, now this.

I’m moving to fucking Canada

@iamty, The Paul dynasty…I’m down, it’d probably look something like this:

Ron Paul
Rand Paul
Roger Paul
Rufus Paul
Roland Paul
Rocksteady Paul

=)

@iamty, I’m extremely skeptical of how real the elections are already, I don’t need a documentary to have me question it

I DO NOT trust our government. They lie to us, fact.
