Just in Time: Another Liberal Who Knows Everything

Every time I Call, Write, or email My representatives. The 1st thing I tell them is that I want TERM LIMITS for all elected officials. Until the majority of constituents are telling them that. It will fall on deaf ears. Once the majority of people are applying that pressure and keep applying it we will have TERM LIMITS. This country will not survive with CAREER POLITICIANS.. I wonder how many people actually contact their representatives?

Getting congress to vote for term limits is like getting them to take a pay cut. It will never happen, so we need to move on to battles we have SOME chance of winning.

Perhaps we could try for term limits by voting the idiots out? Having to limit terms occurs when the democratic ideals have derailed. Like after FDR. No more four term handouts. But we did that one with a constitutional amendment which is not likely today.

I understand your frustration. I am represented by the oldest member in the whole House of Representatives. I know the man personally, and think very highly of him.....But, this last primary election I actually attempted to "term limit" him the old fashioned way....By voting for his much younger opponent. It did not work....He still won both the Primary and the General in a landslide. :-)

BTW This particular Representative, back before they had email....His staffers knew me by name, because I would be on the phone at 9:00A EST every time an issue I was concerned about was being considered.

Our only hope for this country is to get rid of career politicians. Thanks for your efforts. I will try to keep the truth in front of our countrymen!

Dear Comrade Zealous,

Strike one is that Goozner is from Chicago. Strike two is that Goozner was the Chief Economics Correspondent for the Chicago Tribune.

And there is one thing worse than being an economist, and that’s being a journalist. And to sink...
