    There are far too many socialists in Congress. More importantly, there are far too many people willfully blind and ignorant to the presence of openly avowed socialists in Congress.

      Lot’s of people like socialism. I am not kidding. It is a sea change. They like the “fair” part. I can’t say that the voters did not know about Obama in his re-election. I think they knew and like it.

      Rep. Serrano certainly is tenacious.

      And the RIght-o-sphere certainly is forgetful. I remember hyperventilating over this in 2011, 2009, and 2007. And each time later realizing that it’s the same guy with NO co-sponsors, and slapping my forehead and saying “DOH!”

    Another trial balloon. It reveals their intentions and goal. Juxtapost this with suggestions that we should suspend elections competely for just a little while. Remember that in November 2008 the Usurper said he intended to “rule”, not govern, but “rule”. Already he rules by executive order. Remember the Aesop tale of the Frogs who wanted a king.

    I would like an amendment to force prospective voters to pass a cursory logic test before being allowed to vote.

    And instead of ballots with the names of candidates, make it all write-ins. This would prevent the stupid people from voting based on simple name recognition.

    All of you should go and do your research instead of wearing anti-Obama blinders. As far back as Reagan (and probably before) bills were introduced to remove term limits.
