Tell Congress: Keep Presidential Term Limits, Oppose H.J. Res. 15

New York Representative Supports a Resolution that would Abolish Presidential Term Limits ...

On January 4, New York Representative Jose Serrano introduced H.J. Res. 15 -- a resolution to repeal the 22nd Amendment and thereby abolish presidential term limits.

H.J. Res. 15 is currently in the House Judiciary Committee, and lacks co-sponsors. In order to succeed, it must pass both the House and the Senate, and have support among at least 3/4 of the fifty state governments.

In 1947, the 22nd Amendment passed in Congress and was later ratified in 1951.

The Amendment was created by Congress to prevent three and four term U.S. Presidents, like Franklin Delano Roosevelt.

Term limits are a good thing and must remain.

Tell Your Lawmakers to OPPOSE the Repeal of the 22nd Amendment, H.J. Res. 15. Sign the petition and message lawmakers below.

I believe this could end gridlock and needs to passed. This resolution is not to say there will be a dictator in America. This won't affect the number of years per term as it can only affect the amount of terms. In essence to have a dictator, everyone would need to elect the same guy forever.

Do NOT repeal the 22nd Amendment! I cannot believe this would even be considered a good idea. The presidency MUST remain as is: limited to 2 4-year terms, at most. We are a constitutional republic not a dictatorship, and must remain so. To consider any other perspective is ludicrous! Vote down this ridiculous legislation now!!!
