    You're full of shit, no one has proposed term limits that don't apply to everyone. Leftists can't help making up crap as you go, can you?

    When we're talking about the kind of money involved in politics today and what it takes to get elected there is no wonder why corruption has creeped into it. We have people entering the house and senate as middle class folks only to become wealthy in a very short time. The Clinton's are in it knee deep just like many Republicans are as well. I think the only way to stop the corruption is to remove the money. Public financing and three month election seasons will solve the problem until the elected ones find a way to screw it up again...in their favor of course.
