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.

Our government was designed to be a representative government. Rather than remove the Amendment limiting the president to two terms, we should add a new amendment to impose term limits on the Legislative Branch.

Stand up for the 22nd Amendment, it was put into place for a reason. No one person should have unlimited power or terms. Also, Senators & Representatives should be limited to one or two terms (NO MORE THAN THAT) the longer they stay in their seats the more corrupt they are apt to become. These seats were not meant to be used as their careers.

More than 2 terms will create a potential for a president to become a dictator.

We must keep Term limits to prevent dictator obama from forever distroying our country. Our fore fathers fought and died for our freedom from one ruler and we must continue to honor them by remaining free and not returning to the dark ages like so many want by re-electing a government who's agenda is just that. The govenment works for us and we must continue to make it do just that. KEEP THE TERM LIMITS...KEEP OUR FREEDOM!!!

Two terms is MORE than enough. Too many politicians put themselves above the American people and above the law. Two terms keeps it from going to the president's head.

It will be difficult enough to repair 8 years of Obama damage. It may be impossible to recover from 12 years.
