    Tea partiers in Colorado have infiltrated all areas, caucase's and delegations. We did it--term limits for our U.S. Senators are Congressmen will be on November's ballot. It is certain to pass.

    I hope that all of your states are doing the same--this is the only way we can get control of this government. No more decades old senators in government that are continually lobbied by special interest groups and corporations. It changes everything--instead of our senators and congressmen putting their personal political careers and ambitions ahead of what's good for this country and our state.

    Well done! Very Well done. That will rid this country of it's bs cronyism. Did you state what the limits would be.. Eight years sounds about right. With 1/4 their pay for retirement. and they have to go on whatever bs hcr they shoved down our throats.. hang tough..

    I love how the Right comes up with these Ideas that will very likely one day turn around and bite them in the butt.

    Uh, getting something on the ballot isn't difficult nor a guarantee it will pass.

    For those "tea partiers" like Oreo who "ra ra ra" about democracy, they seem to want to restrict it.

    I have to love the pure nativity and ignorance though. "If this passes, congressmen will no longer take bribes! Rainbows will be shooting out of asses! Jesus will come!"

    So, In CO, your senators and congress people are NEVER up for re-election? That's odd?

    I only ask because I thought the Tea Baggers were for LESS government and FOR more personal responsibility? In our form of government, the PEOPLE choose who gets to stay in office, rather than have the government provide some sort of stop-gap measure such as term limits. I have never even visited Colorado and had no idea your politicians were voted in for life?

    Unless it's nationwide, all you're doing is assuring that your state representatives won't get seniority and whatever might come with that in Congress.
