With all of the douchebaggery going on up on the Hill, it’s got me thinking. Presidents have term limits, so why shouldn’t congress?
It seems like MOST difficult (but necessary) decisions/legislation is kicked down the road, compromised on to where it makes no one happy, stuck in a sub committee, filibustered or delayed/derailed by any of a number of ways that would prevent a congressman from “committing political suicide”.
With ONE term, “political suicide” is guaranteed and you take the fear of that off the table… I’ll bet a LOT more shit would get done…
The flip side is that there are some exceptional politicians out there, but we see how well THAT is working. Fuck them. They need to be reminded that they work for US, not special interest groups. For example: MOST of the republican party is sucking Grover Norquist’s cock for crying out loud! He’s a LOBBYIST! We didn’t vote for him, yet he has republicans by the balls cuz they signed his “pledge”. He has effectively taken away the republican party’s ability to compromise, which is what fucking politics is ABOUT.
So fuck 'em. I say we make “political suicide” MANDATORY to take the teeth out of the special interest groups who have congress by the balls.
