Budget Farce Suggests Term Limits Needed

1. Term limits does not address how to control the vast bureaucracy that is accountable to no one and is still there, no matter who is in power. 2. The Republican party is not a conservative party, if it ever was. It has betrayed conservative principles to the point of destroying this country along with the democrats. It's time for conservatives to form their own party.

Put simply, the fiscal cliff debate is an illustration of staggering political cowardice. Politicians of both parties are unwilling to ask voters to pay for all of the big government promises that they made on the campaign trail. They would rather risk the country's long term future than risk losing the next election.  As a former elected legislator, I can assure them that their offices are not worth the price they are asking us, the voters, to pay.

Big government is hugely expensive. Beyond the costs in money, the regulations and political intrusions of an all-controlling nanny-state government create economic disincentives....
