Thread: New bill could make Bush president for life

  1. #1

    Default New bill could make Bush president for life



    A House bill has been introduced that would change the 22nd amendment and enable George Bush to remain President for the rest of his political life.

    The bill would repeal limitations on a President holding office for a maximum of two terms.

    An even darker scenario, Arnold Schwarzenegger is elected as President in 2008 and shorty after the 22nd amendment is abolished, making the Hitler admirer our permanent Fuhrer.

    This is the modern day version of the Enabling Act, which allowed Hitler to officially declare himself dictator.

    The bill, which can be found at the Library of Congress website here, reads as follows.

    ----------------------------------

    Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution. (Introduced in House)

    HJ 24 IH
    109th CONGRESS
    1st Session


    H. J. RES. 24
    Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd amendment to the Constitution.


    IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

    February 17, 2005

    Mr. HOYER (for himself, Mr. BERMAN, Mr. SENSENBRENNER, Mr. SABO, and Mr. PALLONE) 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 22nd amendment to the Constitution.

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    `The twenty-second article of amendment to the Constitution of the United States is repealed.'.

    ------------------------------

    The 22nd amendment as reprinted on the Find Law Website reads as follows.

    Section 1. No person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice, and no person who has held the office of President, or acted as President, for more than two years of a term to which some other person was elected President shall be elected to the office of the President more than once. But this Article shall not apply to any person holding the office of President when this Article was proposed by Congress, and shall not prevent any person who may be holding the office of President, or acting as President, during the term within which this Article becomes operative from holding the office of President or acting as President during the remainder of such term.

    Section 2. This Article shall be inoperative unless it shall have been ratified as an amendment to the Constitution by the legislatures of three-fourths of the several States within seven years from the date of its submission to the States by the Congress.

    Limitation of Presidential Terms

    ''By reason of the lack of a positive expression upon the subject of the tenure of the office of President, and by reason of a well-defined custom which has risen in the past that no President should have more than two terms in that office, much discussion has resulted upon this subject. Hence it is the purpose of this . . . [proposal] . . . to submit this question to the people so they, by and through the recognized processes, may express their views upon this question, and if they shall so elect, they may . . . thereby set at rest this problem.'' 1
