I love this survey, it reflects much of my thinking! 60% think congress can always find a way to make things worse. A sizeable number thing random selection from a phone book could do a better job! Lol!
52% believe election rules are rigged toward the incumbents.
Knowing all this why would we be in favor of growing government? Why wouldn't we demand term limits? Only we the people can fix this!
You and your statistics?
50% of likely voters favor Congressional term limits- how nice when only 50% of the population is registered to vote and 50% of those registered voters actually vote.
And, people have the nerve to say that "majority" rules apply.
You get funnier with every post.
term limits are an insult to the educated american voter, and a crutch to the un-educated that vote.
term limits dont work, and this has been proved in state level races where term limits exist,.... there was more change up in the make up of the state senate and house when primary races mattered. now, with term limits in place, those who think about running just sit back and wait for the joe blow to term limit out, when he/she can then run in a wide field for an open seat,... its easier that way,.... but it keeps joe blow in office longer becuse of the next guys cowerdice,... when you knew that schmuck could have that seat for 30 years, you ran and ran hard to un seat him.
we've had term limits for 200+ years,.... its alled getting off your ass and voting,.... and if your guy losees you get over it.
term limits were the snake oil that so called political reformers sold the childlike masses,.... and now, with term limits, they have even more ways to courupt and manipulate the system.
i'll be back on line by 3 pm, i'll respond to the cerebral ass whoopin then,... i know its coming,.... i relish he debate. he he he!
Yet the president has term limits... hmmm
a term limit was imposed on the ofice of president under the guise of protecting us from a suedo monarchy,... when in fact it was the result of angry republicans who couldnt beat rosevelt,..... if the term limt had not retired bill clinton he would probubly still be in office,.... and the world would look vastly different.
i dont think any elected office should have a term imit,... period.
oh, i'm baaaaaack! ;-)
FDR was nearly a dictator! There were those in the press pushing for him to assume dictatorial powers. That's why there are term limits.
You're back? From where?
i'm not bragging meerly explaing that i'm wrangled into a chamber of comerce luncheon every 4th friday of the month, among other things all the time, and thats where i came back from,...... usualy a snoooz fest, this time i wanted to strangle the horibly inapropriate speaker with my dinner napkin.
meanwhile,.... rosevelt,... yes, he seemed like a dictator to some, but as long as the constitution is honored and the public still gets to vote,.... we still have an honest presidency,.... unlike now.

Do you think Trump will push for Term Limits to shake up Congress?There are many members of Congress who have lived most of their adult lives as elected members of Congress - clearly in defiance to what the founders intended a representative government to be. Are you in support of limiting...

It is time to limit Congress and there is a petition under way to do just that without Congress's consent. Washington doesn't want to stop over spending and balance the budget. They want to eliminate the debt ceiling and spending caps for the next two years....

In an effort to start a conversation towards a more productive change in the politics and direction of the country does it not make sense at this time that these three areas are at the crux of the failure of this country? Term limits were induced after FDR's reign as President because the people...

Yearly full IRS audit for all major elected officials.A limit on legal fees for any court case...
