bill to repeal the 22nd
He won't be in office for 4 yrs let alone 8 or more if they repeal the 22nd amendment.
Shoot Serrano first, then introduce an amendment to make the president's term 6 years and no renewal. 4 years isn't enough in this day and age, and 8 is too many as just proven.
I agree with a six year one time thing. These a-holes are less likely to take as much special interest money if they can't get re-elected. Hopefully something like this would let them do what is right for the people, not for their campaign. I think this should be done in congress as well. Then these people could not amass as much power. I am from Kansas so I think back to Bob Dole. Our state is nothing politically but, we wielded great power because of Dole.
I know doing something like this would not eliminate the corruption but, maybe it would reduce it.
It is scary to think about the 22nd amendment being changed, these power hungry bastards will stop at nothing to insure we one day have a king again.
The way things are going I want to only go somewhere remote and just get the hell away from everyone, establish a mined perimeter and just be left alone.

Well if we are going to get on the "I think it should be like this" train, I will give it a go.
The "President" should be elected for a two year run, and will then, at the end of his/her term become a citizen again and replaced by 12 random 22 year old college students (only one will remain, soon to be explained) to be chosen by means of a lottery (scratch tickets work best) at $1 per ticket. The winners must be college students, or must designate any college student of his/her own liking, who must also agree to serve as Interim President for 1 year - within 1 week of winning. Exception: If all of the winners have not claimed said ticket(s) within 1 week of lottery close, then all colleges who are participants (Ivy Leagues are BANNED) will submit their enrolled lists with no more than 3 students from each college, and totalling no more than 100 colleges. NOTE: College lists are random and include 100 colleges, cycling 25% each election to renew the lists. This is the best part...The college competitors will have a UFC fight off challenge, winner takes all. Without gloves. And no advertising. Although half naked women are encouraged to hold the "round" sign. This contest should take no longer than 3 months to complete and should be held prior to the exchange of office of the President. The original 12 students would fight each other, last man/chick takes all, just like the alternate college election process. After a 1 year term, the student, who will assume the office of President will relinquish command and the previously elected President will once again assume office for another two years. After this, and prior to the end of his term, a new President will be elected and the process will once again start all over.
Added contingency: Under no circumstances will the Emergency War Powers or any other measure interfere with these proceedings. It will be held like the USPS, "neither rain, nor hail, nor tornado or invasion...." Also, no elected president may serve more than ONE elected term (4 years, served in two, 2 year increments broken by the 1 year interim service of college hero.)
*Final footnote* -We could supplement the college student and universities with Gas Stations and Gas Station Attendants. Or perhaps Wal-Mart and Wal-Mart employees between the ages of 22 and 40, non management only. Remember, they have to fight a UFC match against others in their category. We can have quite a bit of fun with this.
EDIT - I forgot to mention that the lottery ticket money goes to pay for the tickets, and any proceeds go to underprivileged children and overweight adult counseling. Also, all possible candidates must also be NATURAL born citizens and comply with the rest of the constitutional provisions which still apply.
No d**n liberal arts degree candidates!(except for future teachers.)"Art" OR "Philosophy" is a hobby not an occupation..."I think the pool should be limited to 2nd term or career active duty military".
I excel in art and philosophy, as they encompass the cornerstone to creativity. I am sorry, but I must reject your theory and institute my own.
Hey, what if the military becomes obsolete? Under the "rule" of a true monarchy, and within the guidelines of the constitution, we don't really need a permanent standing army, as the individual states of the union reserve the right to maintain and regulate militias of their own.
Sorry,another rude post I let fly and should a' quelched before posting. I just saw "college student" mentioned way too many times (imho)in the o p...Seen way too many "spring breakers"...
The standing military will not become obsolete. Not even president Pelosi, vp Clinton ,or any other peace love dub liberal will be able to convince the powers to turn in their strength.until every human in every country is completely controlled (thx1138).
Hey no prob, hehe. I agree that those who belong to "Monsters, Inc." will not stop, and they will certainly run their course. I try to envision that despite "who or what" they are, all they will ever be is an unfortunate necessity for those who willfully promote change. At the very top, an entirely different perspective is drawn, which very few have the opportunity of understanding.
We may only be seeing things "cloudy" right now, but in time much more will become known, and as the saying goes: "Go as far as you can see...once you get there, you can see farther." The greatest problem with Socialism is not in its design or nature -it lies within the hearts and minds of those who are not ready for this type of philosophy, and it leaves no room for traditions to continue to blossom. This is our way now, we are not ready to adopt principles which threaten our way of life, and our perceptions often times lead us to commit the same mistakes. Change is always going to bring an upset to harmony, as the balance shifts and choices are made along the way, automatically negating the chance to follow previous course, we find ourselves caught in the midst of uncertainty for a period, where more chances and opportunities become available.
I was trying not to be too vague, but sometimes it is best not to spell everything out.
Hm. Studying Taoism, eh? (With a bit of Sun Tzu thrown in.)
Also Dr. Haha Lung, just for fun.
So then a "socialist"Gooobermint is good but needs a "reducated" populace??
Needs a "new socialist man" like the Soviets were trying to make for 70 years. Didn't work. The monsters ended up running the country.
