It has long been a Republican's dream to run forever....Not a chance in hell, not legally anyway.
Our forefathers knew that would lead to dictatorships. This is not what America stands for.

My question was not whether or not the Constitution provided provisions for suspending elections.
It was whether the FEMA act provided provisions for suspending elections.

If Bush ran for a 3rd term I'd vote for him again! I hope he does get a 3rd term! He's the best thing that has happened to America in a long time!
Good for you Stand up for what you believe. I dont agree with you, because, well, there are a lot more implications to this than you know. In any case, start a petition that Bush stay!!!!! You should get a few signatures, a few odd looks, a slashed tire or two.....but do it , because that's what you believe!!!

Why on earth are people comparing Bush to a dictator? In a dictatorship you don't have the freedom to talk smack endlessly about our leader! So you liberals should think about that for awhile....I have supported Bush from day 1 and I believe he has done an incredible job as President despite all the leftist criticism.
Seeing that Bush has accomplished so much in just a few years, I would support a 3rd term in his name in order to finalize our efforts in the middle-east and throughout the world.
