Several threads out there on this running now. It’s nothing new for this Congressman. He has done this every congress going back to the 90s which included all of GWB presidencies. Others have done likewise.

The following link from Snopes gives a good summary of the attempts going back to 1951 when the 22nd was adopted.

Yep, lets fight the real battles instead of worrying about something that doesn't stand a snowballs chance of ever becoming reality. Although I'm sure the “sky is falling” hand-wringers will be here in few minutes to explain the super evil genius Obama has some secret plan to get this through congress and get a bunch of red states to approve it. (the same super evil genius Obama that couldn't get his jobs bill through a Republican congress and barely got a gutted healthcare bill through with supermajorites...)

Like the Kenyan, another Hugo Chavez fan?

Repeal of Presidential Term Limits is another dealbreaker.

Thanks ConservativeMan55.

Stupid house resolutions have always been introduced throughout history, most of them go nowhere, like this one, G-D willing. As far as getting info from Snopes, Barbara Mikkelson, the site admin. is an 0bama fan. Doesn’t necessarily mean everything on that site is BS but you gotta consider the source.

Serrano wrote this bill four years ago. It went nowhere in 2009. He just changed the date and resubmitted it.

The fact there’s lots of dem totalitarian thugs is NOT a comfort. I have a plan to help both sides achieve their goals:

Work with dems - split the country into two countries. A Blue and a Red.

Dems can have:

$100 an hour minimum wage.

“Presidents’ for life. No voter ID - hell, no votes at all - Liberal elites know what’s best for everyone. Just ask ‘em.

Marriage between and groups - no matter how weird.

“Abortion on Demand” up until an hour after birth (kid might be ugly.

Free Birth Control

Endless restrictions on what people are allowed to eat.

Hate crime laws against anyone who disagrees with them - on any thing.

Newspapers subsidized by the State - think: Press Re-write Organizations. Kind of like what they are now but without the perk of state money.

Unlimited immigration from every third world sh*th*le in the world.

Tax the rich - meaning anyone who holds a job....

Unlimited ability to borrow money and raise THEIR debt ceiling.

**********************************************************

In short - Dems can have it all - and us? We can have our own country too.

It’s a win-win for both sides. They hate us and we’re not that fond of them... time to call it quits and move on....

You shouldn't dismiss him.

In Spaniard culture, relentlessness like this is considered evidence of committment and resolve.

The Hispanics want to turn the U.S. into a banana republic with Presidents-for-life because that's consistent with their culture and history.

And they are convinced that between mass immigration, high birthrates, a refusal to assimilate, and U.S. government official favoritism towards them (discrimination against Americans in favor of hispanics, redistricting to guarantee a hispanic win, etc), that they will win.

It's worked here in California. We have a clown in the legislature named Gil Cedillo who was named "one bill Gil" because he relentlessly pursued drivers licenses for illegal aliens.

Over and over it was vetoed, until he got it under Jerry Brown. And more. Now he crows about how he ripped apart the laws of the Evil Anglos.

Don't laugh. This garbage is bent on destroying the United States and turning them into Cuba.

Yup. Never hire Dummycrats and liberals. Make sure they’re either conservatives or GOP...like we do. We screen libs from what they drove (if it’s Prius, we make a fake interview within 2 minutes) to our “psych” test from gun ownership to the simple “what do you think of Obama?”

Trust me, it works every time. I hate liberals more than anyone on FR.

Well that have the governing process 2/3rds towards their goal with both Houses of Congress set up for life. However I’d prefer an amendment limiting the Congress critter’s to some time limit.

However I don’t see this passing anytime soon as it’s been an ongoing proposal since the 22nd Amendment was adopted back in 1951. Many attempts but nothing has so far gotten out of committtee, much less passed in both Houses of Congress with a 2/3rds majority in each and then ratified by 38 of the 50 states.

That’s what the rats just did with the `Budget Control Act of 2011’—re=dated it.

The ought to be some sort of penalty when a congressman introduces a bill that has zero chance of even getting to the floor for a vote...

How about wearing your underwear outside your pants for a day....?

“Not gonna happen. Not gonna happen.”

They will sell it to the public as “You are racist if you want term limits....”
