US Term Limits

I don’t know anything about the organization, the video link was emailed me.

That said, it’s a sound argument that applies here in Canada as well.

    That has been a dream of mine for some time now.

    • Mine as well. We really have to bin the political class, lobbyists and public service unions.

    Good old George Washington had enough sense to get out after 8 years.

      So did everyone else until the leftist hero FDR.
      After his crap, we amended our own constitution to prevent any President from serving more than two terms.
      We need to do the same for Congress.
      Two terms for Senate, Four terms for the House.

    Charlie Rangel could never have been elected in a district that wasn’t predominately black. During all his tenure, his district was gerrymandered to insure a black majority. If district lines had been bisected at some point during each ten-year redistricting, his tenure would have been shortened.

    We have term limits in California, and the critters just hop around to the next office.

    The money is the problem, IMHO. The politicians are rental units, hired to keep the borders open and destroy representative government.

      This is precisely why I keep saying that term limits as discussed in the video clip do not go far enough. Term limits must mean once the term is up, the person must completely exit politics at all levels. Not to deal with this aspect will do nothing to eliminate the professional politicians, and they are the problem.
