    How many times did the last fascist president get elected?

    I don't see the republicans letting this out onto the floor for a general vote so there is 0% chance of this passing. It does show that there are those in government that think the example set forth by George Washington is not valid.

    I have a better idea. We should update that amenement - put term limits restriction on all elected federal officials.

    How about we limit all politicians to just one term and then afterwards ban them from being lobbyists for at least 15 years? Also passing no laws that don't apply equally to themselves. That way we don't get our rights trampled on while protecting themselves. Oh yeah and no pensions for professional politicians, they seem to have no problem making ends meet.

    0% chance of passing. What does however have a strong chance of passing and is not available to read is this: A resolution to modify extended debate in the Senate to improve the legislative process. (S.Res. 6) - GovTrack.us

    Proposed by our own Senator in Oregon. Makes me wonder how he wants to "modify" extended debate. Like, lets not have it so we can ram through legislation without people noticing I would guess. Time will tell.

    Update: Found the text for the bill. I'll admit that the legalese is too thick for me. Can anyone understand this crap?
    Bill Text - 113th Congress (2013-2014) - THOMAS (Library of Congress)

    More research done. So Merkley's bill, in conjunction with this bill: http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/query/z?c113:S.RES.4: would effectively end the ability to filibuster.

    Add in this bill: http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bills/113/sres5 and the Democrats can completely block a fillabuster from even taking place. At that point your senators don't matter if they are in the minority party. Its a good thing these guys are so righteous in representing America. Otherwise they might make laws to change the rules so they can do anything they want to further their own agendas...

    You can term limit any Senator or Congress person at the next election. Or do you want the government to do it for you...?

    I'm not voting for Obama for his third term.. I am sure there will be some here though who don't think he will go after our shotguns and bolt guns, he just needed to keep us safe from guns used in mass shootings, which were those deadly semi auto assault weapons. Yes, I do believe he will find a way to run for a third term and have all the gold-digging, free-loading, backstabbing, liberal, fascist/socialist, one-world government, spread the wealth types will do everything in the power to put Mr. Hussein Obama in power for a third term.
