Rumor: Obama Seeks Unconstitutional Third Term
Despite securing a second term as President of the United States with convincing fashion, Barack Obama is the subject of yet another conspiracy theory that seeks to undermine his legitimacy.
After President Obama’s first term broke an unofficial record for a presidency inundated with crackpot theories, his second term is already heating up with new rumors. According to the newest one, the big “O” is secretly looking to secure a third term election. Something that is against the U.S. Constitution.
According to investment adviser and conservative (apparently being conservative is a job title now) Porter Stansberry, Obama already has a plan in place to run again in 2016 for re-reelection…
Stansberry says Obama will follow the footsteps of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was the last President to run for a third consecutive term in 1940 (and a fourth and final one, just prior to his death, in 1944). No other President has run for a third term because of the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution, which states that “no person shall be elected to the office of the President more than twice,” after it was instated by Congress following the end of FDR’s final leave from office.
But Stansberry believes that the POTUS will use a coming boom in the U.S shale industry to convince the American people to vote for him a third time… although it’s not clear how Obama would get around having to convince three-fourths of U.S. states to sign off on the move. Considering that a repeal of the Amendment would mean we could practically have a dictatorship in the United States, it seems unlikely so many states (many of which voted for Romney) would support the measure.
Unless, of course, the New World Order is behind this.
