I (Gene, that is) am as concerned/disgusted with Washington D.C. as are most of you. I suspect the folks who are not concerned (or even approve of the politicians in the U.S. Capital) certainly are not reading anything I have to say. And, even if they did, they wouldn’t understand.
I don’t believe I’m going out on a limb at all when I say that those of you who would call yourselves conservatives would like to limit the power of the liberals/socialists in Congress. I also am quite confident that those of you who would see yourselves as progressive/liberal would like to limit the power of conservatives in Congress.
We (nearly) all have the same wish – to limit the power of those members in Congress who oppose our way (whichever way that may be) of thinking. How do we limit the power of members of Congress?
If things are to change in the cesspool we call Washington D.C. we have to eliminate the incentive for the most power hungry among us to seek office. Politics no longer attracts civic-minded public servants. Politics attracts people (men and women, Republican and Democrat) who see politics as their path to power and wealth. And the longer they stay the more power and wealth they accumulate. So, let’s limit how long they can stay.
I’ve begun reading Mark Levin’s “The Liberty Amendments.” Levin strikes me as a pretty amazingly smart guy about these kinds of things. I expect I will learn a lot. I expect many of you already know how this can be done without needing the Congress who (shockingly) seem reluctant to voluntary give up their gravy train.
I believe 98% of us want to limit the amount of time, power, and wealth “public servants” can accumulate in Washington. Keep this thought, our efforts, and our country in your prayers. I think that’s a light I see at the end of this tunnel.
Please allow us to serve you and those you love.
P.S. Let me know your thoughts about term limits. Agree or disagree. I respect you.
