Term Limits: Cry for Real Public Service


Call for Term Limits for Politicians Ignored by Career Politicians Posing as Public Servants

by Johnny Punish


Almost everyone hates and distrusts Congress.  We all know they are purchased and thus do not heed to the interests of the people.  They get our votes and then go about working the next 4 to 6 years answering to their money backers.  It’s institutional corruption at its highest forcing career politicians on us when what we really need is true public servants.

Yet we, the people, have to endure this ridiculous open secret in that we know it is inherently corrupt but go about pretending it all works when it does not work at all; unless you’re a corporate high end executive. Instead of true public servants, we get career politicians that aim to get entrenched in jobs for their security and power.  And worse, we applaud when a congressman lasts over 20 years and call him/her an elder statesmen.  In short, we glorify them.

The list is so long that if I tried to list all the career politicians here it might break the internet.

Instead, lets’ out a few just for fun. Hey….

  • Anthony Weiner, are you really trying to get back into the job even after you were disgraced by a smart phone?
  • Former Governor Mark Sanford, are you serious about getting your job back as Governor after you left in disgrace?
  • Senator Mitch McConnell, you’ve been there so long your voice is a decibel below an elephant cough.
  • Please no Jeb Bush vs. Hilliary Clinton in a fake open election in 2016.   No entrenched family dynasties please!

This country can only reach its democratic potential when we limit its representatives and senators to just one term in the public interest.  This will insure that, once in office, they will NOT be beholden to the corporatocrazy and their assigns that have infected the public trust.

Instead, by being a true public servant with only 1 term to serve they can focus on the job at hand and making good decision on behalf of the people.

In short, its’ time for term limits

  • Congressman:  4 years
  • Senators:     6 years
  • Term Limits:  1 term only

That’s it!  No career public servants.  No more Schumers, Cantors, Rangels or McCains.  Go home!

NO Re-election campaigns and no more voting for lobby interests.

No more making these esteemed public service a lifetime career.

  1. “In short, its’ time for term limits
    Congressman: 4 years
    Senators: 6 years
    Term Limits: 1 term only”

    No Lobbyists of Interest Groups
    —-Are allowed to enter the 2 Chambers of the USA Congress.

    Lobbyists of Interest Groups
    —-Could only hire a Senator after 6-years, and a Congressman after 4-years they left USA Congress

    Make it Treasonous for Lobbyists of Interest Groups
    —-To give money, promise favors or make deals with USA Congress, while in office.

    Work Schedule
    —-USA Congress has to work full-time, Mon.–Fri, (40-hours a week), with (2-weeks vacation), with the exception of “Filibuster,” which will make them earn “Comp. Time”

    USA Congress Salary
    —–Comparable to outside salary range

    Deadlines & Priorities
    —–USA Congress has to prioritize it’s work & complete all it’s deadlines not only on schedule, but ahead of schedule.

    Independent Watch Groups to Monitor USA Congress activities, how the spend our money, etc.
    ——-The Group to be funded by tax payers–and inform the Citizens regularly, through the media specifically, dedicated show on C-Span.
    —— The Watch Groups TO CREATE ONE WEB SITE & Phone info line (for non-computer users) — for both houses of USA Congress candidates
    ——-Remind the USA Citizens, their votes not only affect the (50-States), but also the Entire World, as USA is the Supper-Power of the World.

    These and other changes:

    1—If not eliminate, hopefully will minimize the number of corrupt politicians
    2—We will have politicians who spend more time working for USA rather than trying to be re-elected
    3—We will save millions if not billions tax payers’ money that we spend to elect House Members: Every 2 years
    4—We will have more informed & smart voters

  2. get rid of the lobbyists as well, it is a good start along with term limits, I am all for it!!

  3. Johnny, I’m in favor of one term limits but the problem is selfish interest groups make congress critters beholden on them via providing their spouse a position as a board member of a company which includes stock options, finding ways to cover their kids college expenses or the secret promise of a huge salary for a job at a specific company, a lobbyist position or a position in an association after they leave congress if they meet the demands of the selfish interest group while holding a political position.
