    There is only one problem with term limits. It doesn't differentiate between the good and the bad. Term limits affect every member of congress equally. While there are some we would like to see gone there are others who do their job, represent their constituents and should not be subject to term limits.

    The best term limitation is the vote. If you don't like the scoundrel, vote him out of office.

    I disagree.

    I think term limits are a great way to insure that the politicians will "Vote no rod against themselves"

    Which is to say it ensures that they must return to the private sector and live under any laws/regulations they may pass.

    They can run for other Offices. That brings experience and variety into play better.

    Hard revolution kicking every breathing person out of Washington for me. Lobbyist would be deported.

    Start over, from the constitution... except Rep. Joe Wilson. He appears to have found his spine.
