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?

Angry Dem Impeachment ‘Witness’: Pam Karlan Donated Thousands To Hillary And Was On Clinton’s List For Potential SCOTUS Nomination

The House Judiciary Committee, chaired by Rep. Jerrold Nadler, kicked off its first impeachment circus Wednesday morning.

The four ‘witnesses’ testifying have never actually witnessed any of Trump’s dealings with Ukraine firsthand — the four witnesses are law professors offering legal analysis.

One of the witnesses the Dems rolled out is an angry Hillary Clinton donor who was on Crooked’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

No wonder why this unhinged, dowdy woman is so pissed off!

“Professor Pam Karlan donated thousands of dollars to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination. So she certainly has no vendetta against President Trump,” GOP Rep. Mark Walker said.

Congressman Walker also pointed out that Noah Feldman, the Dems first partisan witness in Wednesday’s hearing tweeted about impeaching Trump right after he was sworn in.

Meet Noah Feldman, House Democrats first partisan witness.

Look at the date of this tweet. He has been trying to get @realDonaldTrump impeached since 46 days into his presidency.

His reason? Trump criticized President Obama.

This is a sham impeachment with sham witnesses. https://twitter.com/NoahRFeldman/status/839185127494254592

The next witness, Karlan, has donated thousands to Democrats and was on Hillary Clinton’s list for a potential Supreme Court nomination.

So she certainly has no vendetta against @realDonaldTrump.

These witnesses are as serious as House Democrats impeachment case: not at all.

The entire sham show trial is stacked with partisan hacks who have wanted to impeach Trump from the moment he won in November of 2016.

Norm Eisen, the Democrats’ counsel who is blasting Trump and questioning witnesses in Wednesday’s show trial, tweeted about impeaching Trump before Donald Trump was even sworn into office!
