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...

Vote ALL The Bastards Out!!!!

Pass It On For Our Country


And the memory of our Founding Fathers

At least read this. Form your own opinion, even if you disagree with this issue, but at least read it. You and I owe that to our country



Consider the suggestion here.



.

From yet another reader...and I agree with this 100%...
The entire Congress of the United States is corrupt. And I mean both major parties.  I realize that a few Members of each House are trustworthy, but, as a group they are absolutely the most corrupt bunch to ever disgrace our Nation.  In November of 2010 the entire House of Representatives will stand for re-election; all 435 of them. One third of the Senate, a total of 33 of them, will also stand for re-election.

Vote every incumbent out.

And I mean every one of them. No matter their Party affiliation.  Let's start all over in the House of Representatives with 435 people who have absolutely no experience in running that body, with no political favors owed to anyone but their own constituents. Let's make them understand that they work for us. They are answerable to us and they simply have to run that body with some common sense.

Two years later, in 2012, vote the next third of the incumbents in the Senate out.

We can do the same thing in 2014 and, by that time we will have put all new people in that body as well. We, the People, have got to take this Country back and we HAVE to do it peacefully. That's what the Framers of our Constitution envisioned.

I am also suggesting term limits on the NEW BUNCH -- 8 YEARS FOR REPRESENTATIVES [four] terms that’s all.

AND  12 YEARS [2 terms] FOR SENATORS. 
NO EXCEPTIONS. THE LONGER THEY STAY IN OFICE THE MORE POWER THEY GET AND THEY LOVE IT AND WILL DO ANYTHING TO GET RE-ELECTED.   WE HAVE TERM LIMITED THE PRESIDENT – NOW LET'S TERM LIMIT THE LEGISLATORS.
And we do away with their Special Retirement system and their health program (they should have same health programs everyone else in America does). When they are through serving their country they go back to being private citizens. They should view their service as a privilege; after all it was designed to be a part time job to represent the voice of the people, NOT the special interest groups and those who can do favors for them.
If they don’t like this proposal then don’t run for office…This thing can permeate this Country in no time.  Let's make it happen.

VOTE THE POWER ABUSERS OUT........LET'S TAKE AMERICA BACK !!!!!!!!!  IF YOU LIKE THE WAY THINGS ARE GOING IN OUR COUNTRY,  THEN DO NOTHING.........
It's time to get rid of a Congress that's spent our country into the ground.  We can't afford what they're giving us...which is mostly crap any way...

Remember November!

Term limits won't help.

"It's not the abuse of power, it's the power to abuse." (alas, I can't recall who said that).

The problem is that power is accumulating in Washington D.C. Leaving that power there and implementing term limits won't change the problem, it will merely change the names of the people involved more frequently.

Power didn't start accumulating in Washington D.C. until the 17th amendment was ratified (this allows the people to vote for their US Senators).

What we need is for this amendment to be repealed, along with the nullification of all laws and Supreme Court rulings enacted since the 17th amendment was ratified (if we leave the laws and rulings in place, we would effectively freeze the problem in place).

Prior to the 17th amendment, Senators were beholden to their State legislators for their positions. State legislatures don't like having their power grabbed by the federal government, so when a power grab was attempted by the Congress, the Senators would stop it.

The founders very carefully created a government structure that ensured that power would be diffuse, and spread mainly to the people. The 17th amendment broke this careful construct, and is what has brought us to were we are today. Any measure that doesn't restore the mechanism that kept power diffuse won't solve the problem.

I believe you're right. You make some very excellent points. As well that I'm concerned for the movement to repeal th Electoral College...which was put into place to protect the smaller, less populous states from the far fewer, states.

It forces a presidential candidates to build a national coalition, state by state...I'll post more on this in a few days. As well as something on the 17th Amendment...thanks for reminding me.
