This may persuade me. Links at site:
As a democracy the term limit is rightly the responsibility of VOTERS. If the majority of voters want to elect someone over and over so be it.
More to the point, how would term limits stop Hillary or another Bush or Clinton from running? Shall we pass a law that says if your related to a President you cant ever run yourself? The Presidency is already term limited as is.
Interesting points but I am not sure we should restrict any person that qualifies (as outlined in the US Constitution) from running for office. However, it is apparent that unless you have a LOT of money, running for office is an exercise in futility. The 'war chests' get bigger and bigger which automatically eliminates otherwise qualified candidates from running. Unfortunately, that also means the candidates that can run have little or no idea how the common man thinks. I suspect that is why politicians are so sensitive to polls.
Good post. I would have said something similar. I think Gunny2 is plagiarizing my thoughts.
That's what happens when you have such an open mind that your thoughts leak out all over the place...anyone can pick them up and use them!
I'm not open minded...it just seems that way because I'm never wrong and everything I say is the truth so everybody agrees with me.
You didn't take your meds this morning did you!
Are you disagreeing with me that everyone agrees with me? UNHEARD OF!!!!
He is agreeing that you think everyone agrees with you. Is that good enough? )
No. Everyone must also think that they agree with me or else it hinders my progress towards world domination.
