Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

A Simple Proposal

I hereby propose the following as the 28th Amendment to the United States Constitution.

1. No citizen of the United States shall be elected to the House of Representatives to more than four (4) consecutive, two (2) year terms to office.

2. No citizen of the United States shall be elected to the United States Senate for more than two (2) consecutive, six (6) year terms of office.

3. No citizen of the United States shall receive any retirement benefits from serving in either the United States House of Representatives or the United States Senate.

4. Congress shall not exempt itself from any laws of the United States of America, in whole or in part.

Comments please...?
