    Doesn't work, even if you get them, the slimes get into office and change it back.

    NY wanted limits for years, finally got it, then a rich guy wanted a third term and got it changed so he could.

    Congress would be the same.

    There is no reason I had to have Ted Kennedy of Poopcity telling me how to live down in Florida my entire adult life.
    I couldnt vote against him but he got to fuck with me all he wanted.
    It aint right.

    No, they shouldn't receive anything other than standard Social Security and 401Ks, just like the private sector. Let them do defined contribution.

    There will be perks for the ruling elite until they are all dead. They consider themselves above the average citizen...and legislate to make sure they stay there.

    Indeed. It's a rigged game.

    We really do need a Constitutional Convention to get rid of the loopholes which enable the Ruling Class.

    Sounds like you're saying we've an oligarchy and the free republic has passed...

    If that's the case, there are only two options: Throw them all out in the streets and change the constitution


    or


    kill them all in the streets and hang their corpses from the streetlamps


    Since you've pretty much said the first is impossible at this point...
