    I disagree. We need professional lawmakers. We need to pay them well and punish those severly who accept bribes. Money must somehow, someway be taken out of politics.

    It would require a Constitutional Amendment and flys in the face of the supposed right of the people to elect whom they want by popular vote.

    How about they just repel the amendment that allows Senators to be elected and return that power to the State Governments where it belongs?

    A much better solution then making Dukes, Earls and Kings out of our lawmakers.

    Yup, why don't we just give up our right to vote? I mean you people are insisting we are just to damn stupid to know who to vote for.

    The way people are elected is the problem, the system is all about money and favors.

    Well, we all know YOU are just based onthe drivel that you post. Let's pass a Constituional Amendment that requires every voter MUCH pass a minimum eqivalency test on the issues at hand prior to being able to vote. That should do it!

    I always find it funny that you can predict who's talking about term limits from year to year.... They're always the party out of power.

    And there you have it, the left attempting to deny the vote to whom ever they can. By the way dumb ass I guess you missed the Supreme Court rulings on Competency tests at the start of the Civil Rights movement? They are anything but. Their purpose is to deny the vote to what ever group or groups are currently out of favor with the Democratic party. And here you are advocating for them.

    Once again for the terminally stupid, Term limits accomplish one thing, denying the people the right to vote for whom they want to represent them, a bed rock of the very Government we have. The House of Representatives are supposed to be the people's voice. Members elected BY the people to Represent them. Term limits are for the lazy and the stupid. You see unlike you, I VOTE for the person I want to represent me, they just so far ( except for a sheriff) have all been Republicans. Ohh and last year I voted for the Democrat that ran for the House Seat in my district. I would have voted for Hillary also but I sure as hell wasn't gonna vote for Obama.
