    Article Five of the United States Constitution describes the process whereby the Constitution may be altered. Such amendments may be proposed by the United States Congress or by a national convention assembled at the request of the legislatures of at least two-thirds of the states. The method of proposal by national convention has been attempted twice, but never succeeded. The method of proposal by Congress requires a supermajority of two-thirds of both houses; this means two-thirds of those members voting in each house—assuming that a quorum exists when the vote is cast—and not necessarily two-thirds of the entire membership. Amendment proposals generally contain a deadline before which the ratification by states must be completed, but the legal status of such a deadline remains unsettled. To become valid, an amendment must then be ratified by three-fourths of the states—that is, by 38 out of the current 50 US states (by 2013), either by their legislatures or by ratifying conventions. States choosing the convention method usually hold elections specifically for the purpose of choosing delegates to the convention. Once certified by the Archivist of the United States, the amendment takes effect according to its provisions and the other rules of the constitution.

    See, but you actually have to be an American.. Of which he never was.

    Yeah.. I can see his new slogan:

    "Dictatorship, hope, genocide, change, green energy."
    "Everyone wants a piece of the pie they didn't help make."
    And it wont be "yes we can" it'll be "yes we will".

    I"m reminded of plane, trains and automobiles.... "You're going the wrong way!!!"

    Instead of letting the POTUS remain in office indefinitely, how about limiting terms of the Congress?
