    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    `The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is hereby repealed.'.

    We do NOT need a lifetime dictator! (Signed)

    =================================

    I think that we can all imagine what would happen if this bill ever made it out-of-committee and comes up for a vote.

    Someone in the WhiteHouse (or the Congress) might think it would be a really good reason to grant amnesty to the millions of illegal aliens (read: "potential future voters") already in the country.

    And I really can't even begin to contemplate a situation where a lifetime Obama Presidency is even a remote possibility - can you? Given his and his entire Cabinets' ANTI-gun/ANTI-2A policies and agenda?

    You need to contact your U.S. Representative about this and make sure that this bill stays buried in Committee.

    ... spy1 ...

    Being able to vote in the 2012 election is one of the most important things that we Americans have to look forward . One term is enough for most POTUS and more than two is a very bad idea for our nation .

    Thanks for the heads up . I am going to google Jose Serrano now . We still have time to act as a UNITED States .

    The 22nd Amendment was necessary after seeing the mess that FDR did to the country.. and he wanted to do more than he did!

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?

    Thisbill will go nowhere without ratificationfrom 3/4 of the 50 states (38). This bill, or some similarity, has been introduced repeatedly for a couple of decades, and hasn't gone anywhere yet.

    This is why it is so damned important to get out the vote for midterm and state/local elections.
