This is a very dangerous resolution, it could make a president a dictator.

I support Repeal the 22nd amendment, removing Presidential term limits because... Repealing the 22nd Amendment will allow the people the choice of who they want leading the nation for as long as they are fit. It is important to put measures in place to assure that an opportunity for consistency and sustainability exits for the American people. If a president is changing America for the better and the people like the change, then the people should be able to re-elect him or her. If we want to re-elect the same president time and time again, we should be able to do so. This is not about creating a dictatorship because we live in a democracy where the people vote for or against who they want or do not want. It is unfair to block the American people from having the leader they want by artificial restrictions on the number of their terms. So long as the people of our country still have the right to vote every 4 years, then there is no reason that an outstanding person that represents the people of our nation can not reside as such for a longer length of time in office. It will still be the people's choice who our President is and it will allow our government to focus more thoroughly on the issues in our world that must be addressed so that Americans are properly represented.

I support H.J.Res. 15 ("Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article") because the presidency is meant to connect generations together and, if the person continues to be voted in, provide consistency. Elections are natural term limits. A two-term limit is an artificial end.

I support H.J.Res. 15 ("Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article") because...men and women should be protected equally in all matters, not just the right to vote. To do otherwise is discriminatory. I want my daughters to know they are forever protected by the US Constitution, in all manners.

I support H.J.Res. 15 ("Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article") because... ‘Logical Way to Vote’ I’ve voted ‘Democratic’ this year because I want to move America into a modern era by establishing a new (and more cost effective) "four term" electorate for the office of the presidency of the United States of America. A securer electoric government could be maintained by having the highest elective office eligible for a lengthier stay at management. Thus, allowing more time for any creative policies, or ideas to solidify while the weakening or undermining of the political manipulative system’s held in greater check! P.S. As it’s concerning that some are already calling the ratification of the United States twenty-second amendment “Obama’s plan to become King” which’s clearly unrelated to politics or might’ve anything to do with the current administration’s policies at all! Thank you!

I oppose Repeal the 22nd amendment, removing Presidential term limits because it is a terrible idea. We need term limits for all elected offices, not a roll-back of the ones that currently exist. We have allowed a "political class" to come into existence, where career politicians have replaced citizen legislators. The constant focus on electability and the campaign creates a perverse incentive against voting one's conscience and doing the right thing when that thing is unpopular or not part of the party platform. It has to stop.
