Alas, No

I have seen a number of people suggesting that term limits might alleviate some of the problems we are facing in this country. I’m sorry, we did it in Florida and things have gotten worse.

There are no senior politicians to act as moderating influences and laws are written by lobbyists and staff. The actual legislators don’t develop the necessary skills and start campaigning for Federal office as they approach their limits. They aren’t governing, they are in campaign mode. If you contact them with a problem with the state government, they don’t know who to contact to fix it.

Be careful what you wish for – you may get it and it’s hard to correct.

I agree with you.

It’s amazing how many bad ideas never seem to fade away after multiple failures. There are a number of people in government who, in my opinion, are well beyond their “Best by:” date, but I have no right to overrule the decision of the people who voted for them.
