What America needs is term limits, single-term Senators and House members. No re-election possible, period. This would be the single best thing we could do in America to save America from her own government.

I used to think the same thing, until I got an semi-insiders view of how government works. Fine, term limit everyone out. Who is left running the place? The government employees: clerks, aides, etc., etc. You think the government is slow and irresponsible now, wait until its run by the people who run the post office.

If we are dumb enough to keep electing the morons, the we deserve the government we get.

However, I do think we need to adopt some reforms that other countries have put into place. Mostly, time and money limits on the campaign season.
