Throw the bums out: 75 percent back Congress term limits

Sure, voters sent a majority of incumbent members of Congress back to Washington in November 2012. But a new Gallup poll finds that 75 percent of Americans support imposing term limits on lawmakers in D.C.

Twenty-one percent would vote against a law limiting the number of terms representatives and senators can serve.

Really?

We have term limits. On election day we can end any congress critters term...but we don't. We re-elect the criminals 90% of the time. We can term limit them anytime we want...we do not need to wait for a law that will never ever see a vote in congress.

need to be changed often and for the same reason

Frequent turnover just means refreshing the filth more often.

Not a solution. There is only one solution. Taking our Israeli media out of the picture. So, any ideas?

Ron Paul set the example.

Vote to uphold and defend the Constitution or it's off to the political graveyard.

We have to take care of these problem, we can't depend on the Supreme Court.

Free includes debt-free!

Not true.

If they believed it 75% would be enough to vote out any bum!

Free includes debt-free!

lol

Paul, if you ask random voters throught the nation "what is wrong with politics?" the majority will say "congress, they are crooks!." Then you ask them, "What do you think of your congressman or senator?" Then the majority will say, "He's a good guy, it's the rest of them that's the problem."

Herein lays the problem. It's not their fault, they elected a good pol, it is everybody else's fault.

Perhaps we are using the wrong measure.

My local Representative has never failed to vote for and unconstitutional bill.

He has failed to uphold and defend the Constitution.

The Supreme Court is a built in Check and balance.

If their were 435 following Ron Paul's example, it wouldn't matter if Republican, Democrat or Libertarian were elected.

Vote for unconstitutional legislation and you're out. No questions asked.

Free includes debt-free!

term limits deny the people's rights...

...to keep a Ron Paul in there as long as he does what they want him to...

This is the LAZY way to get people out of office...no study, no personal involvement, no tussle or struggle against what you disagree with...no guarantee of change either with straight party voters either.

All this does

is mask the problem. Voters who did not do their due-diligence and decided to reelect the same pol who does no good will still elect the same type of pol. It is absurd if you ask me.
