    But what if it did happen and he got three terms

    Would he make things worse than what they already are

    Obama doesn't need to be a good President. He only needs to be better than his competition. I definitely don't see him getting three terms, though.

    12 years? Lol. If it were up to me, every president would get 5 years to try and fix the country. No re-election campaigns or anything like that.

    but he has appointed new men in new positions Pantgon and C.I.A, plus the gitmo scandals

    This means he is on track for a third term

    He is trying everything in his power to make him the man for a third term ... just before 2016 we will know if this comes ture or not

    What about Obama would make him worthy of a 3rd term? I and my family are certainly not drastically better off than 4 years ago and if Obama's 2nd term is more of the same I won't be better off in 4 more years. If fact my mother had to get a part time job in addition to her full time job. I have to help pay off her debt. So it isn't better, money is tighter now.

    2 terms is enough. Congress is already full of incumbents don't add the president to that list of incumbents. I want new.

    Focus. Control. Conviction. Resolve. A true ace lacks none of these attributes. Nothing can deter you from the task at hand except your own fears. This is your sky.

    in politics its often the case that the things aparty/president wants doing dont start to get implemented and reap the rewards until they leave.

    It takes time to do things now

    someone tries this during every 2nd term... its usually just a cry for attention.

    I also support a 1 term-6 year presidency... and term limits on congressmen

    Nope, I can't see this happening.

    Honestly, why would Obama himself want that kind of mess after 2016...?

    Next amendment should be a single 6 year term for president and 12 year cap for congress. So you can be a senator for 6 and a congressman for 6 etc. Just break it down.

    Somebody get me a doctor, I ain't feelin' ill ...But I ain't feelin' this at all...

    So have thousands of gun owners in the US, that are being denied the right to have and gun which could be used for defensive purposes should the situation arise.

    Not nearly enough of them. Those safeguards should be mandatory

    I would not be against a mandatory training course that came with the purchase of an Assault Rifle, if those are what the government wants banned.

    Yeah, I think more thorough background checks/training is a reasonable middle-ground.

    I just don't understand why Assault weapons need to be banned when they only make up a minuscule amount of the gun murders. It's very odd. It doesn't make sense in the grand scheme of things.

    It's not about making the public safer. It's about the pursuit of an unstated agenda.

    Taken from another forum:

    Here is a philosophical tool I'd like more people to use.

    IF an action, initiative, system, or law, consistently fails to achieve it's stated goal, but is consistently continued, THEN it is accomplishing its unstated goal. In other words, its stated goal is not the goal. When government continues to do something, that does not achieve it's stated goal, then it is achieving an unstated goal.

    At that point a rational person must look deeper, to determine the "unstated" goal.

    There is an unstated goal to gun bans. It's not the stated goal to "save the children" or "prevent civilian on civilian violence".








    For example New York is taking bold steps to ban semi-automatic rifles of a particular design. In New York the total number of murders carried out by all rifles (according to FBI crime statist) in 2011 was 5.

    5

    Their stated goal for a ban is to prevent violence and murder, but that's a lie. There is an unstated goal.
