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.
