Term Limit Reform Now! Already

Getting rid of a corrupt politician is like trying to get rid of an infestation of cock roaches. Read up on impeachment and you will find that achieving that is less possible then landing man on Mars. With the advent of the PC,the internet and computing capabilities that mimic the human brain in which decisions and changes can be made in a heart beat it seems to me that the only way we will be able to reform this dinosaur of American Politics is to speed up the process of regime changes and restore DC back to a center for Public Servants and not career elite taxpayer welfare recipients. I am suggesting new term limits for each level of government including the Judicial. I am also suggesting a limit to how many jobs you may hold. No more than two at the Federal Level. How long the terms? 2 years. This is the time length the average CEO is given to bring a company around. More than enough time. And you can serve no more than two of these two year terms. In this way if someone like our current admin turns out to be a nightmare run amuck we can vote the idiots out in two. I would also put an end to relatives holding the same office. This would end monarchies. No more lifetime jobs. Political science is no longer taught in colleges as a career option. Benefits would only include a salary and deductions for social security and their out of pocket paid healthcare plan. No lifetime salary, no lifetime fully paid healthcare, no paid security upon leaving office. Supreme Court justices will be selected via lottery like public defenders from the pool of high court justices currently serving in their states and not selected by the President. This would insure a variety of people and ideals. Their mandate wound be to uphold the ideals of the Constitution and not to make law. With no opportunity for wealth gain in politics this will insure that true public servants will be applying for the jobs instead of power hungry dictators. Two year terms would force government to operate in a more efficient way. When you vote urge your candidates to sponsor term limit bills. It's time to return government to serving the American people instead of the other way around. Ask not what you can do for your country, ask what your government is doing to you.

  1. Here’s a practical Tea Party type strategy to create a “Citizen Congress”

    A Congress of career politicians will never represent “We the People”, because their highest priority is getting reelected with the help of Big Money.

    But “We the People” have more votes than “Big Money” has, and thus can end Congress as a career for professional politicians by never reelecting incumbents.

    We can impose single terms every two years, by never reelecting Congress.

    Always vote, but only for challengers. Never reelect incumbents.

    Keep this up until Congress is mostly “one-termers”, a citizen Congress.

    Then keep it up every election, to make a citizen Congress a permanent reality.

    Every American’s only intelligent choice is to never reelect anyone in Congress!

    The only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to get a truly new Congress,

    and a cleaned up new politics is
