    I've read the Referendum.  It's got nothing to do with term limits, and the timing would mean he wouldn't even be on the November ballot.

    Zeleya was "trying to extend his term" exactly like Obama has "tried to make this a communist country".

      Referendum on whether to hold a constitutional convention which would eventually potentially lead to him being allowed to run for a new term.  The referendum itself wasn't even really legal, but this is clearly the most he could do at this time.

      Do I think it's ridiculous that it's illegal to even discuss the topic?  Surely.  But if not for term extension, why did he call for the referendum?

      No on Prop 8::Sometimes I get to hitch a ride on the Democratic Bus--they let me stand on the back bumper.
