can we do about Congress?
wonder when being a representative for the state became a lifelong job.
When this country started, the
representatives all did that as a service to their country and after
one or two terms went back to their farms or business and continued
their lives. They served to help the country, not to become millionaires
and get a big retirement for the rest of their lives. The only way we
will ever get control of the country and legislator is to put into effect
the 2-term limit for both the house and the senate. As long as they
have people there for life and they all have their own agenda's we will
never get anything productive done.
Somehow we have to get control of these things.
I guess we will have to put a petition in to get this done. They will
never police themselves or restrict their terms themselves. We need
also change the way that anyone gets elected. As long as we let people
do fund raising and collect money from companies and special interest
groups, you will never get anyone elected that will put the people and
the country first. We pay a big price for this, so lets just pay the
price to start with. Lets make it possible for any person to get elected.
Any person that can get x number of signatures on a petition to run
for office, would get x number of dollars for their campaign. They would
not be allowed any fund raising. They would only be able to by advertising
to run for office 6 months prior to an election. This would allow any
person regardless of their financial condition to run for an office.
