    Don’t be so sure. I’m sure he has an executive order in the works to make that nightmare 3rd term possible.

    Looking at how the republicans are in a hurry to change laws in regards to voting it seems to be the other way around.

    My Dad once said that the GOP pushed term limits through because of Roosevelt, and then they were hoist on their own petard when Eisenhower could have been re-elected at least once more with no real effort…

    What a weird fantasy world. Kings and third terms. Try concentrating on something positive. Maybe some meditation would help you or volunteering at your church.

    No sarcasm intended here. Curiosity. What laws do you speak of?

    Offhand, I’d guess he’s talking about the recent proposals in several states to let the Congressional maps (which have been ridiculously gerrymandered in favor of Republicans) also determine the allocation of electoral votes.

    Though I can believe the GOP initiated the 22d Amendment it could not have gotten out of Congress without Democratic support. In 1947 the Senate was 53% Republican and the House was 57% Republican. It requires 67% (2/3) yea votes to send an amendment to the states. The splits in the state legislatures at that time would also have required some Democratic support to reach the 75% ratification requirement.

    Recall that in 1947 the South was represented by ‘Southern Democrats’, AKA ‘Dixiecrats’ – Democrats in name, but the political agenda of Republicans.

    That’s O.K. Just calm down.
    The doctor said he would increase your dosage, so you can regain your grasp on reality.
    Just try to hang on until the nice men in the white coats come around to help you back to your rubber room, so you can’t hurt yourself.
    It’s going to be all right.

    Look at what Virginia lawmakers just did regarding electoral votes. Question now is will the Governor sign it or, knowing it is an un American approach to voting, veto the bill.

    Federal elections need federal guidelines too many votes are ignored via the abuses of partisan politics.

    In the latest election Obama won the popular vote in a number of states with a Republican majority in both the State House, State Senate, and a Republican Governor. Most of those states apportion the electoral votes on a ‘Winner Take All’ basis. The current #1 ‘Big Idea’ in the Republican Party is for those states to change state law so electoral votes are apportioned in the same percentage as the popular vote. The theory, of course, is that that MIGHT have given Romney enough electoral votes to win, even though he lost the popular vote.

    As an idea of how desperate the Republicans are, their #2 ‘Big Idea’ is ASKING the rank and file Republicans for advice.

    Of course, nobody believes they will actually USE the suggestions.

    I think that guidelines is all the Federal Government could put out. If memory serves (always dangerous ground), I think it would take a constitutional amendment to make something like that law and I can’t see the states giving up a right like that.

    It has oft been said that the greatest thing George Washington ever did was to step down and allow the next man to peacefully assume power. There were many calling for this accomplished leader to become a virtual king, a president for life, but he set the standard that allowed for 43 other men to peacefully assume power in the name of our Constitution. For the oath of office to be recited 56 more times.
    The first president to make the claim that he, and he alone, despite any election results or acts of congress, has the authority, duty, and/or right to maintain his hold on power will be the president who will force Americans to rise up as one in revolution against the man, not the Presidency. It is my firm belief that our military, who vows to defend the Constitution from all enemies, foreign and domestic, will not allow this to happen.
    Respectfully,

    And that would have been after the Progs had changed it for them?
