DO YOU FAVOR TERM LIMITS
My response to that question asked on Facebook I responded:
I support American citizens standing up and defending the Constitution which already contains limits on the length of time a President, Member of the House and Senator can serve. It also affirms that only a man can be President of the United States.
When the Framers did their work, women did nothing outside the home and were, for the most part, content to have it that way. Taking care of their homes was a monster of a job and allowed no time or energy to do other things.
Article I. Section 2. makes it clear that Members of the House shall be chosen every second year. “The House of Representatives shall be composed of Members chosen every second year by the People of the several States, ….” That clearly states that all new Members will be chosen every second year. No provisions for reelection are provided.
Article I. Section 3. “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the People thereof, for six Years, and each Senator shall have one vote. ….”
Article II. Section 1., second provision, both orders that a man shall be President and limits his term, and the term of a Vice President to four years. “He shall hold his Office for the Term of four Years, and with the Vice President, elected for the same Term, be elected as follows: ….”
The Constitution does not provide for reelections on purpose. The framers knew well the weaknesses of men exposed, over time, to unguarded temptations for which there are no penalties for abuse. They knew that they would eventually come to be self-serving and care more about their personal gains from those temptations than for the people and country they represent. Thus, they purposefully set the exact amount of time a person is to serve in each of the three positions. Remember, the Constitution is our founding document upon which our country and our system of laws is based. It is the structure, etched as in stone, that we must follow as its is written and has been ratified by the States who, by so doing, agreed to live by its commands.
The Framers also provided that there is no way to change the Constitution because of it being the basis for our way of life, unless the rules for doing so provided in Article V thereof are followed to the letter in amending it.
The Framers new that politicians would bend every word and provision to suit their agenda of the moment. Thus, the Article V amendment processes are very strict, detailed, demanding and precise to prevent frivolous changes for political reasons. It can take years to have a proposed amendment ratified by three-fourths of the States. Then additional time will have to pass until all the conditions contained in the amendment are satisfied before the amendment can become binding on the People.
SAVE AMERICA BY REELECTING NO-ONE AND BY NOT ELECTING A WOMAN PRESIDENT UNTIL AN ARTICLE V AMENDMENT GIVES WOMEN EQUAL STATUS WITH MEN. Since a woman cannot be President it is fair to understand that they cannot hold any public office. There is no other way that they can win equal status with men. The President cannot make it so, the Congress cannot pass a law and the Supreme Court cannot interpret them equal status by bending the Framer’s words in an interpretation.
We the People must preserve, protect and defend the Constitution or become slaves without it. Your choice!
