Right or Left all agree on the need for term limits.
I’m taking a break from my usual subject to write about change.
So here’s an interesting fact.
According to McLaughlin & Associates who in January 2018, conducted a National Survey regarding term limits in Congress. The result…
The American people overwhelming approve of term limits.
This isn’t news. Most voters have stated in other surveys, again and again, they believe term limits are a good thing. Unfortunately, most of our esteem elected officials disagree. I understand why. Really, who wouldn’t want to stay put in a job that pays well, has a great pension and lifetime healthcare? But, unlike Congress, most people are forced to retire after twenty-five or thirty years on the job.
But voters don’t need a law to enforce term limits. We, the people, can instill our own set of limits. How?
Vote out lifers.
So many of our representatives in Congress have no idea what is happening in the life of everyday people. Many can’t send an email, they’ve got interns for such menial stuff. They don’t even understand how to search the Internet. Or how to discern fake news from real news. When an elected official can’t speak intelligently about current changes in society or relate to their constituents, it’s time they go.
After too many years of an ineffective Congress, it’s time for a change.
It’s time to vote in new blood, and younger representatives. Representatives who understand how, with the click of a button, a person’s life can be turned upside down. That, thanks to the internet, our world is becoming a little smaller every day. Without the knowledge and understanding, Congress cannot protect us from a tsunami of technology surely coming.
Electing the same Senators and Congressmen, year after year and hoping for a better outcome, for an effective government, we are in the words of Albert Einstein, insane.
Let’s get off the government hamster wheel, going nowhere and accomplishing nothing. Send a message to Congress – Vote this November and let your voice count.
Let’s elect new blood into the House and Senate. It’s time to thank the old guard for their service and send them home. Vote this November.

I like this a lot, people should vote and remove the ones who are no longer capable. Way to go Jean. 🙂
