The Move to Repeal the 22nd Amendment

Posted by John Hitchcock on 2009/01/16

Hat tip to Dana Pico on this.

It seems there is an effort afoot to repeal the term-limit amendment from the US Constitution, making it possible for Presidents to serve three terms or more. From what I read, Jose Serrano (D-NY) has authored a resolution in the US House of Representatives to eliminate the only term limit in the constitution. Apparently, he introduced the same resolution in 2003, which would have very much benefited Bill Clinton (D-AR) but no Republican would have benefitted. His current introduction of the bill was too late to have had any chance to benefit GWB. Coincidence? I think not.

This action is an attempt to consolidate Democrat power, pure and simple. But even if it weren’t, I would stand solidly against it. As I wrote in a previous article, the lack of term limits is bad for the country, as can be historically evidenced. I suggest all who desire a strong constitutional republic and have a distaste for out of control governments should call or write their congressmen and senators and make it known that the repeal of the 22nd amendment is unacceptable.
