Repeal of the 22nd Amendment?

Congress continues to get crazier just when you thought that wasn’t possible. 

Although it hasn’t recieved much media attention, Rep Jose Serrano (D-NY) introduced a House Joint Resolution earlier this year to repeal the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, the clause which limits presidents to two terms of service.

Here is the text of the legislation:

Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.

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

While the bill has no cosponsors at at this time, it wouldn’t surprise me if it suddenly became popular among Democrats if Obama wins reelection.  This could be the start of ever more tyrannical rule, and, if it successfully passes and repeals the 22nd Amendment, would justify the warnings against government we’ve heard for years.
