Some on the Right consider the Constitution a divinely inspired document. If that is the case, why do so many politicians want to amend it in so many different ways. Not only do many on the Right want to further amend the Constitution by adding amendments to it, they advocate the repeal of most, if not all, of the current amendments save for the Second, gun rights and the Tenth, states rights.

If the term limits amendment were repealed, then Ronald Reagan might be nominated to run again. There is nothing in the Constitution to prohibit a deceased candidate from running for office. If he were re-elected, his vice president, whoever he or she might be, would serve out the term.
