Ignoring American History

As a long time friend and fan, Scottie, I love most of what you said here. However, I sadly have to disagree with your last statement: that "if those in office choose to ignore the voice of the American people then, I assure you, the American people will choose to ignore them the next time at the ballot box." If that were true, senators like Lamar Alexander would not continue to be reelected from our great state of Tennessee. How many times must he prove his mettle as a moderate...his pride as a progressive...and his love of the liberals, before we in the GOP finally stand up and say ENOUGH?? But, indeed, those who control our state Party already have begun their work to send him back to the Senate yet again! Why??? I need answers!!

We have to have term limits, there is the answer, citizen legislatures, not professional politicians.

We already have term limits. These dolts do have to run for reelection...Select and vote for opponents to them. If the new ones don't do what we elect them for, vote them out! Occaisionally, a good one comes along, one we might want to keep around, which we counldn't do if we set term limits legally. Vote 'em out! That's all the term limit we need.

In times of trouble, I always look to those wiser and stronger then I for guidance.  I look to those who, when faced with hardship, found a way to overcome.
