A Letter To The Editor
Regaining control of Congress....
Enough voters can do what Congress will never do!
Term limits, term limits, term limits...and make them short terms. Fresh blood and new ideas vs. tired blood and failed ideas. Is that really such a hard choice to see clearly and to make?
A great many thinking Americans would like to see term limits passed, but will in many cases vote for "seniority" and "possible committee chairmanships" or for "our guy!" All of those keep from addressing the question of term limits. And the other drawback? Congress would have to pass them.
There is one other solution for a Congress which has only a 10% approval rating: vote out the old and vote in the new. It takes a little courage, not knowing for sure what kind of music the "new orchestra" might make. Perhaps it would be more pleasing than listening to the "public chorus" of complaints over a problem the public can solve on its own!
[Note: Different papers and editors have their own requirements for what constitutes an acceptable "Letter To the Editor." If you see a merit in this one, or want to write one of your own, please send it to your editors. After all, expecting different results in 2013 by electing the same Congress in 2012, would be like expecting to have summer tomorrow because it's almost spring today.]
