That flushing sound you heard was our Constitution. We are now governed by the law of the jungle. To make it even better, there’s a move underfoot to make the Maximum Leader a “President for Life”.
As Inauguration Day approaches and Barack Obama prepares to assume his first term as president, some in Congress are hoping to make it possible for the Democrat to not only seek a second term in office, but a third and fourth as well.
The U.S. House Committee on the Judiciary is considering a bill that would repeal the Constitution’s 22nd Amendment prohibiting a president from being elected to more than two terms in office.
Rep. Jose Serrano, D-N.Y., earlier this month introduced the bill, H. J. Res. 5, which, according to the bill’s language, proposes “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.”
To hell with all the rules, right?
Personally, I find the hyper-adulatory coverage of the inauguration of their messiah by the media disgusting.
