    Trump is not a career politician.

    He is Barnum Bailey of anger, and when the country becomes a failing circus of elites who no longer have any clue how Americans live, elites who are being eaten alive on the rougher global stage by the Putins and Chinas and murderous Islamic half wits of the world, then yes, Barunum Bailey becomes the vote of no confidence in those who have no competence.

    There's no need for term limits on Congresspeople!

    The answer is the general electorate waking up to the truth that these are the reasons Congress is broken and something can only be done about it by them! The voters.

    If the voters could be trusted to do their job properly then there would be nothing to discuss. No one has ever trusted people entirely, except the mentally ill. The founding fathers created a number of fail-safes for our system. Checks and balances against an irresponsible citizenry.

    Congress isn't supposed to fix itself. We, the people, are supposed to fix it by voting out corrupt representatives. We aren't doing our job. So the question, it seems to me, is how we can get from where we are to where we need to be. Right now the wrong people are attracted to the job, because they know the watchdogs are ineffective and they will be allowed to run amok. If we can, by term limits (and other needed reforms) make Washington less appealing to people who seek office for the wrong reasons, maybe we can improve the choices we're offering to our voters.
