"How come liberals never admit that they're liberal? They've now come up with a new word called 'progressive,' which I thought was an insurance company but apparently it's a label." —Marco Rubio
Obstinate continuance in a particular course of action despite ongoing and continued opposition encapsulates the very definition of Persistence. Such is the case of Representative Jose Enrique Serrano, a DemocRAT , representing New York's 15th South Bronx District.
As Fox News Reports, Serrano proposes the constitutional amendment ending presidential term limits. The resolution dates back 15 years Serrano bringing it forth with each foray into public life.
I would be remiss if I neglected to mention that Señor Serrano is a member of the Congressional Progressive Caucus. H.J. Res. 17 now goes to the House Judiciary Committee for its, "licks."
It is probably a fair characterization that with the re-election of Barack Obama, the social-progressives (Marxists, Socialists, Liberals, Communit-wits...all feathers on the same bird) now feel emboldened, heartened even, to push through big chunks of their progressive, oppressive agenda.
Remember when people would point and laugh, calling us paranoid when we insisted this country is headed in the direction of being a Marxist Socialist state? Yeah, those were the good old days, now weren't they?
