#1 Another attempt by Obama to stay, no matter who proposes it, you can be sure the goal is to extend Obama in office.

Won't work.

#2 Strange why these Lefties never brought this up when Reagen was in his second term. /sarc off

Note Well - it was a Constitutional amendment which required a super majority to submit and ratify. For a political movement that must employ widespread deception and corruption to just get a mere majority to sustain its existing power, the only means they have to overcome the process is by fiat. At which time, there is no law but power.

#3 Barack Obama should be allowed to stand for re election just as citizens should be allowed to vote for — or against — him. Anything less diminishes our leaders and ourselves.

Not only no but hell no. The current crop of lefties would like nothing better than to elect a basically incompetent who aspires to an executive branch dictatorship. The 22nd Amendment was passed by Congress and by the required number of States. It is a part of the Constitution. Those on the left are not fond of our Constitution but the people of our Republic have spoken.

#6 When is Krystalnacht scheduled? I'm expecting some pretext, domestic or foreign, for this criminal claque to try a "martial law(less" decree.

When that happens the republic will have fallen and the minutemen will have to march again.

#7 File under I pray I'm wrong.
Vast allegations of fraud occur during the next election. Obama declares it a "Constitutional Crisis", A state of Emergency for our democracy and Stops the elections for DOJ to investigate. Both sides go to court. Investigation is partisan and finds fraud only on one side. They go after the right and Tea Party. More legal action. The only viable way is to register voters, ACLU has a stroke and files in every courthouse clogging the system. IRS goes after every republican on the accusation list bankrupting the republican party. Finally three years later the issue is resolved. The president decides to stay in power until the next election cycle, calls it a state of emergency action to restore democracy. The country is just as divided and riots.

#9 Actually, if it weren't for term.limits, Bill Clinton might have gone for extra terms.

Of course, if I could take over for one day, the first thing I would do is institute term limits for Congress. With no grandfather clause.

#10 Just for a gedanker thing, imagine a dropping of term limits and Bill being able to run. Think of the damn Democratic primaries! I would re-engage just for the damn hell of it. Think of Hillary under the largest damn bus you have ever seen in your nightmares....
