    Should there be term limits on congress?

    I think term limits (in congress) would be the best thing since the Boston Tea party!! Something like 2 term senators and 5 team house! or what do you think it should be? Maybe this would cut down on corruption a little on both sides right and left!! POS on both sides in most cases the fact that they have the American people divided plays right into their greedy hands!!

    Yes, but limit it to 1 term, and you can't run for one office while holding another

    An election is a term limit.

    Yes, the only reason we have it is because FDR won 4 times & was doing shit to help the people.

    The elites can't have that happen again.

    Term limits won't change things. We need to change campaign finance laws. Not allow special interest to fund & buy off the people that get elected.

    Take the money out of politics & you will get a better group of people to be interest in it.

    Money is power & that's who runs our government. You can forget about by & for the people.

    Real progress and change won't come from the top.

    It has to come from the bottom.

    A poor girl wants to marry, a rich girl wants to flirt

    A rich man goes to college, a poor man goes to work
    A drunkard wants another drink of wine, and a politician wants your vote
    I don't want much of nothing at all, but I will take another toke
