The fact that the GOVERNMENT would even consider removing the natural right to bear arms is the very reason why the 2nd Amendment was written.

That's a joke unless he repeats it under other circumstances later. The liberal press won't take it that way because it's what they wanted with Obama and they don't want it to happen unless one of theirs is in office.

The term limits of the presidency should extend to other 'elected' officials. We have too many Senators and Representatives that have been in elected office way too long. Serving was never meant to be an occupation, because there is way too much damage that can be inflicted on the American people - and that has been proven many times over.

Agreed, but they will never vote for it themselves!

I agree that the “president for life.... maybe we’ll give it a shot one day”... was an attempt at humor.  The press is just looking for anything that they possibly can use to criticize him.  “See! He wants to be a dictator just like Xi Jinping!!!”

I also would like to see term limits in Congress.  Maybe not in the Supreme Court but many lower courts could benefit from term limits as well.

Anything that will replace our present system of Professional Politicians with the our intended system of a Citizen Government would certainly be an improvement.
"We will have a good government as long as those that govern are effected by those laws that they pass. When those that are passing the laws are no longer effected by those laws then they will no longer pass good laws."
