WHEREAS, Beaufort county Republican Party Hilton Head Precinct 6A, holding its Precinct Reorganization Meeting on Monday, February 28, 2011, and
WHEREAS, our Precinct recognizes that it is a primary duty of every Citizen to help the government fight corruption, and
WHEREAS, our Precinct realizes that the Federal government cannot possibly reform itself, and
WHEREAS, a movement has begun amongst the several States to advance the concept of a Constitutional Amendment to limit congressional terms of office, and
WHEREAS, it appears that the time may be right for a grass roots initiative on this matter, therefore
BE IT RESOLVED, that the State Legislature of the State of South Carolina, in conjunction with other like-minded States, should initiate and ratify an Amendment to the Constitution of the United States, and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the proposed Amendment take the form, as follows:
1. No person shall be elected as a member of the U.S. House of
Representatives/Member of Congress more than six times or the U.S.
Senate more than two times for a total of twelve years total for either
2. If an individual is already holding the office of member of the U.S. House
Of Representatives/U.S. Senator when this Amendment takes effect, this
Individual may continue to hold the office for the remainder of its term,
not to exceed six years.
