I LIKE THE 6 YEAR DEAL AFTER 6 YEARS YOU STEP DOWN AND WOULD HAVE TO RUN FOR A CONGRESS,SENITR, HOUSE REP ANY THING BUT WHAT YOU JUST SERVED, AND IF YOU SUCK YOU WILL NOT GET VOTED INN, HOWEVER IF YOU DO A GOOD JOB AND SERVE THE PEOPLE YOU SHOULD GET INN. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK OF THAT

TERM LIMITS

I'm for it but I'd want an end to all the benifit's they get for serving one term too. They get paid to serve and when they are done the payday quits. The working word here is SERVE! They are supposed to be serving their country, not raping it.

TERM LIMITS

There are already built in term limits. Every 4-6 years they can be replaced.

That is not the same as a limit. A limit means when the time is up your job is OVER, go home or get a new one.

I understand, but being a Constitutionalist, I can not agree with a Law saying there should be term limits. That is not provided for in the Constitution.
It sounds good and I would almost agree with it but then you would have no argument with other Laws, such as Government HealthCare, being passed even though there is no provision for that in the Constitution.

I KNOW THE REP AND DEMS ARE AT FAULT. ANY ONE THAT READS THIS IM WONDERING WHAT YOUR THOUGHTS ARE ON THIS SUBJECT. FOR THE RECORD I DONT KNOW IF I AM A REPUBLICAN OR A INDPENT IM NOT REAL PROUD OF ETHER SIDE AT THE MOMENT. GOOD LUCK HUNTING THIS YEAR.

Then what would we do with all the unemployed Kennedy's still living? Can a Kennedy even find a real job that doesnt include making moonshine?

TERM LIMITS

I have to agree with Jtapia. Our votes can set term limits. Don't like a politician, vote him/her out. Its that simple. Lots of dems will find out firsthand about term limits with the next elections!

TERM LIMITS

hunter g, I'm guessing it's all the "imports" that voted for Obama, it sure wasn't the old timers. I have new neighbors that moved here from California a couple years ago - guess who they voted for? Our county did NOT go for Obama, but many counties that have new folks from urban areas, obviously did vote for Obama.

We even have a dem for a governor, but I believe he won't make it another term. He's run the state into the ground.
