We badly need TERM LIMITS!! Also no person currently holding office may run for another office and must finish out his term before doing so.

I completely disagree. Term-limiting is a very poor bandaide for lack of constant citizen oversight on who rises to the ballot. Plus, term-limits knock out the very few good legislators, when we are lucky enough to find and elect them.

The problem is that being a 'watchmen on the wall' takes lots of time and effort AND MONEY - from everyone. Noting that there are monthly meetings of our political parties, in our local districts and counties - yet less than .01 percent of 'conservatives' care enough to ever darken the doors of any of these very important meetings.

The lazy American 'conservative' should be term-limited in my estimation... you lose your right to vote if you don't attend to your duty as a citizen on a continuous basis... and that means caring enough to get in the car, turn the ignition key and drive to these KEY meetings, where you live.

Likely less than .04 percent of FReepers attend any local political party meetings, much less assist in GOTV or contribute a moment of their precious time to assisting conservative candidates in campaign necessities.
