I've provided professional services for over 30 years and operate a couple small businesses.
I got involved in politics a while back as an independent and enjoyed considerable success as a outspoken critic of my "collegues".......all of them.......which earned me their undying hatred.  Politicians don't like to be privately or publicly described as useless, self-serving, self-interested, self important, unimaginative parasites unqualifed to lead a trip to the john.

 

I've seen politicians "up close and personal" and DO NOT LIKE WHAT I SAW AND EXPERIENCED.  As I am sure many of you agree, the country has become a political culture of retail career politicians many of whom would be imprisoned and bankrupt if their conduct took place in the private sector.  Where is it written that politicians, once elected, have the right to spend our money campaigning on their own behalf during their terms in office. 

 

I hear complaints all the time and have frequently expressed by own dissatisfaction about the behavior of public officials.  But, at the same time, I have always offered a SOLUTION.

 

My question to my fellow patriots within the Tea Party Movement.  Do you propose and SOLUTIONS to the obvious problems associated with our political culture? 

 

I strongly believe that The Tea Party should NEVER be identified with a specific "personality" as its leader.  But I also believe that, if the miracle of the Tea Party is going to make a difference, we need to be identifed by specific ideas and goals.

 

In this regard, from my point of view, the only REAL change is going to take place through Amending the United States Constitution.  There are a number of important issues we can address as amendments to the constition.   I could not possibly agree more with many of you who

propose term limits.  I believe we should impose term limits by Constitutional Amendment.  In this regard, I think some very common sense and popular arguments can be made for LIMITING the term of Congressmen and Senators to ONE TERM.

 

Of the numerous ideas I would like to discuss to address important issues through the process of Amending the Constitutional, possibly we should start with what may be the most important change and a change that may serve as a catalyst for many other important changes.  What then are the arguments for and against limiting the terms of elected officials to ONE TERM.

 

I'm wondering if you are interested in getting involved in this discussion.  My proposal is that we begin a drive to amend the Constitution to limit the terms of elected officians to ONE TERM.  Tell me I'm wrong.

California has instituted term limits, and what they have found is the congressmen do as many favors for special interests as they can during their stay in office so they can get special treatment when their terms are up. I"m afraid our only hope is to elect people with the nation's interest at heart , first and foremost. A very tough job.
Are they limited to ONE term?

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
