No term limit for President Obama?

This is nearly a month old, true, but has been something that has been sitting on the back of my mind for a long time. The other day, with the death of Cory Aquino, one statement about Marcos, and another one that I have made many times to many people, rang loudly!

The last time I said "It only takes ONE TIME of declaring martial law...." was to my youngest brother when he asked me what it was about Obama that worried me.

The statement about Marcos??

Former Philippines President Aquino Dead At 76 : NPR

Marcos, elected president in 1965, declared martial law in 1972 to avoid term limits. He abolished the Congress and jailed Aquino's husband and thousands of opponents, journalists and activists without charges. Aquino became her husband's political stand-in, confidant, message carrier and spokeswoman.

That in mind, perhaps you can understand why this article still sits there waiting for me to put it on my blog... "ONE time... Martial Law... One Time".

God bless!

No term limit for President Obama?

A resolution, H.J. Res. 5, was introduced into committee on January 6, 2009 which seeks to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, thus removing term limits for U.S. presidents.

Yes, you read it right. Democrat Representative Jose Serrano of New York wishes to allow unlimited terms for President Obama.

The presidential term limit was ratified as an amendment to the Constitution in 1951. However, our founding fathers adhered to the principle of a two-term limit on their own accord. The only president that served more than two terms was Democrat President Franklin Roosevelt, who served four non-consecutive terms.

Shall we go the way of the Venezuelan dictatorship?
