They really must establish term limits for these shyster politicians. 2 terms in the House or Senate. That would be 8 years. That is enough.

It will stop the proliferation of the McCain's and Pelosi types. No lifers. Yeah

Not sure why we are discussing the comments of one of the dumbest SOB's that darkened the Congressional halls. He is one of the reasons we are in the helluva mess we are in.

I am not a libtard and I don't live in those coastal areas occupied by libtards.  This may sound callous but I don't care about those places or the people who inhabit those cities.  They have nothing in common with me or the rest of the country which is in Flyover country.

So take what I just said and multiply it by 150 million.  That would be approximately half the population of the country.  I'm but an example of how half of the population feels about libtard land.

I'll raise you an idgaf...very little outside of friends, family and my immediate concerns for community interest me. For instance,  what does a beet farmer in N Dakota know about the concerns of a shrimp boat captain in Louisiana? Or vice versa?....I do like to hear other opinions once in a while, but I don't see me changing any time soon, lol.
Bottom line is that the federal government is just too damn big and can't possibly do what liberals want it to do...it can't do what so-called conservatives want it to do either
Well stated. And the various regions of the country are so divergent in their life styles and their needs. This is why I think firearms regulations should be left up to the states. States Rights you know. What works in Manhattan does not work in Yankton, SD.

I think it should be 6 years max, 3 year terms for the senate, 4 years max for the house, two two year terms. That would give the President a chance to have fresh meat in both the house and congress. If the President is limited to only two 4 year terms why are these people allowed to hold office until they die?

Career politicians are part of the reason we are in this mess. It needs to end.

That is the principal reason we are in this mess. It has to stop. And they need to take the money out of politics. Its not supposed to be that way...either.

Lobbying by corps like big pharma and the tobacco industry needs to be outlawed. Back room deals and padding the bank accounts of politicians by big corps needs to stop.

If these congress critters were limited to a 6 year term they might decide to be interested in doing their job instead of getting re-elected. I swear, they spend more money and time trying to get re-elected than they do working for us WE THE PEOPLE.

It needs to stop.

Almost everyone I know wants term limits and to shut down K street. Except the politicians and lobbyists. I don't know everyone of course, but I do know my share and my temperament is such that I can even tolerate a conversation or 2 with some liberals on occasion. The main reason I want to abolish the house is that it makes the government a little more controllable. If you believe voting works, you can only vote for one representative. There are 435 of those blood sucking leaches. That's way too many to comfortably watch. Maybe even cut the Senate in half. Government has to be shrunk for multiple reasons, one of them is that we're broke.
I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.
