Repeal the Two-Term-Limit for Presidents
This petition had 14 supporters
The American People should be able to again elect a previous President, who now is restricted to run for a third term.
This petition calls on the Congress to put forward to the States the REPEAL OF THE 22nd AMENDMENT, adopted 70 years ago, after The People kept re-electing Franklin Delano Roosevelt. FDR saved our nation from the economic collapse of the Great Depression, and led us to victory in the Second World War.
FDR saved this nation. We should honor the greatest President of the last century by striking away the anti-FDR Amendment.
In 60 elections, every President loved The People of this beautiful nation, and not one would sell this country short just to get rich. Let's give our former Presidents the chance to run again.
