Just finished Thomas Jefferson by Meachum. Great read. All the issues that are occuring today were being fought over since the start of the country.
Democracy can sure be messy

I would expect you to be in favor of term limits. You are Republicans. You know that the only way you are going to get Democrats out of office, is to take away the rights of the voters to re-elect them. Just more Republican fascism, taking away people's right, whom you don't agree with. That's been the policy of the Republican Party just about forever.

that a great idea. if you have the IQ of 12.

Obama Claus racked up over $6T in additional debt to get re-elected.
Can you imagine how much he would spend to keep the parasites voting for him ?

Oh, so you're ok with the concept that money can buy election results? I guess you're good with "the corporations" "buying" congresscritters, then, right?

How old are you? I'm guessing you're still in your teens. You can't even manage to put together a cohesive argument, and you have the foresight of a goldfish.

One more thing - you understand that if you DID manage to repeal the 22nd Amendment, it would apply no matter who was in office, right? It's not like it would only apply to a single President. Have you thought that far ahead? No? Didn't think so.

Kids.

No, it's time to limit all politicians to one term so they don't spend their time (and our money) getting reelected.

Doubtful. The republican presidential canadite has won a majority of the popular vote only one time since 1988 (bush 2004). So one time in the last 24 years...you may need some luck just to win one more any time soon.

If we didn't have term limits, Bill Clinton would still be president, we'd have a budget surplus, and everybody would be working and happy. The Bushtard would have never gotten elected and had the chance to F-it all up.
I don't think so. If he were still in office, and with the cocaine habit he had (and may still be using), he'd be dead by now.

(Look it up. Clinton, perforated septum, cocaine use)

Reagan made a few mistakes, a couple of them bigger than we could afford. But, did you also know that there are more mule's backsides than there are mules in this world? Did you know that Obama makes up for one of the extras?

as to the second part of your post, rubbish as it assumes that the policies set in motion would have stayed in motion. we still would have had the 9/11 attacks, and the corresponding recession, and we still would have had the housing market collapse, and again the corresponding recession.
I'm amazed that so many still feel that Reagan was such a good President. The subsidizing of American jobs beyond our boarders started a trend of "OUTSOURCING" that we still have not recovered from. The actual seeds of the most recent recession were planted before Reagan, but he sure did add fertilizer for them to grow and spread. One of the biggest problems we face today is that so many are not able to see that. That "outsourcing" is doing trillions of dollars worth of damage to our own economy each year.
