Amendment to Constitution to repeal 22nd Article: Remove Presidential term limits

I'm not overly concerned about this --- yet --- but it bears watching.

Rep. Jose Serrano (NY-16) has introduced H.J.Res.5 which proposes to amend the Constitution of the United States to repeal the 22nd article of amendment. This would remove the limitation on the number of terms a President may serve.

He introduced it January 6th, 2009.

There are no co-sponsors which leads me to believe this might just be grandstanding, maybe wishful thinking... then again, it may be the beginning of a future movement that could take the country by surprise. I can't see this going anywhere at the moment, if ever. Let's hope it will never gain any momentum.

Git-R-Done brought this to my attention via email ( - Conservative Talk) and I'm certainly glad he's watching! We need people who will be vigilant on issues like this one.

Serrano has one of the smallest districts in the country geographically. Located in the Bronx, it's small, but jam-packed with a mainly Hispanic population according to various sources I checked on the Internet.

Check out Serrano's stances on issues here:
