The Citizen Representative

Ohil Orenstein at The American Thinker wrote a GREAT piece that summarizes my feelings in regards to where we go from here. I’ll add this: we need to limit the terms of members of Congress. I think four terms in the House and two in the Senate are MORE than sufficient. I believe this would force congresspeople to behave more rationally and stop the con game of vote buying and return the process of governing to the people and not this oligarchy of egomaniacs we have now. Unfortunately, this would require amending the Constitution. This requires 2/3 of both houses of Congress voting to approve the amendment, followed by 3/4 of the states ratifying it. The odds of this happening in the current Congress are worse than the odds of Tiger Woods winning Husband of the Year, but we need to keep this goal in mind as we go forward.
