Term Limits crosses political parties and affiliations….it is simply this: Limiting the time our elected Congress men and women can serve in office. Basically putting a time limit on how long they are able to spend in Washington. If you had unlimited time to get something done, would you be in a hurry to get it done?
“But our Congressman is doing great, he votes just the way I want him to.” That’s wonderful, BUT there are other “great” men and women that are able to serve and bring fresh ideas and concepts to the table. If we don’t put NEW people in DC, than we will continue to get the same results. Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is insanity! The whole goal becomes voting party line and getting reelected, regardless of what’s right for the country! These guys become owned by big money! “If I just vote the “party line” than my district or state will re-elect me and I get to stay here with all the perks!” This was NEVER meant to be!
Congress currently has a 28% approval rating and yet Incumbents (current congressman/women) have an over 93% chance of being re-elected. Geeeez….if an individual got a 28 out of 100 at a job in the private sector, they would be FIRED! If you take a test and get a 28% that’s a failing grade! If you fail….you don’t get to move on…because….ummm you failed!
“Well…getting someone new in there, with No knowledge of how Congress works, doesn’t seem like a smart move to me.” Really…..really….so you are pleased with the state of our country? How is that 19 Trillion in debt working for you? We are literally re-electing people to fix the problems they created! It is the current incumbent filled Congress that has gotten us to where we are today!
“The best way to ensure we are truly a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, is to replace the career politicians in Washingtonwith citizen legislators who care more about the next generation than their next election. – Senator Coburn
“This nation can no longer afford these entrenched men and women who enjoy lives of luxury wholly insulated from the consequences of their major policy failures.” –Former Senator Jim Demint
Oh forget it…it’s an uphill battle…Congress will never vote themselves out of a job…..you might be right. So what do YOU do?
Find out if YOUR Senator or Congressperson supports Term Limits and will Term Limit themselves!? If so…great….vote for them…if NOT…VOTE THEM OUT! It will start with WE the People!
It may start small….. a simple grassroots movement…but this is how you DRAIN THE SWAMP! For our Country’s future, for your kids future- we need men and women that are in Washington to serve and then go home…not stay….holding office is a JOB, it was never meant to be a CAREER! Get the Job done, then get out!
