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.

Not only are term limits necessary for the president, they are necessary for congress as well. Also, executive orders need to be outlawed. We have checks and balances for a reason.

The second ammendment was added to the constitution for one reason only: to enable the people to overthrow tyranical government. Those within government who seek gun control seek it for one reason only: to establish tyranical government. The position each member of congress takes on this issue reveals his stance on freedom or tyranny.

Two terms is enough, and this should apply to members of the House and 1 term for the Senate. All federal workers should be under the same retirement and medical programs that all citizens are required to participate in.

It does not surprise me in the least such a bill would be offered. Obama already thinks he is King and wants to set it in stone. I'd wager he put this stooge concressman up to it!!!
