HJ Res 15 to Repeal 22nd Amendment and Remove Term Limits for President - 113th Congress and Isaiah 49:25-26






This is nothing new. Similar proposals have been made every two years or so over the past two decades.

Snopes report: http://www.snopes.com/politics/obama/termlimits.asp

What makes this attempt so significant and alarming are the compounded conditions we face at this time, and the indisputable fact that the individual occupying the White House is the single greatest security threat our nation has ever encountered.

Previous attempts to remove presidential term limits have loosened the screw, so to speak, for the final twist. Let us not allow this to become the final twist.

My fellow patriots, take courage in the promise spoken by the ancient prophet, Isaiah, whose words can be liken unto us.

Isaiah 49:25-26

But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children.

And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the Lord am thy Saviour and thy Redeemer, the mighty One of Jacob.
