Time For Term Limits?

We should not stop there, we need to set Term Limits for all of Congress and the Senate. I have been back and fourth with this issue. However, I’m at the age now where I’ve seen quite a bit from Washington, and there are these patterns, i.e. politician campaign promises that never manifest….and so much more that is not worth getting into here. Term limits will be as mid term elections are, our weapon of staying free and independent, combined, the American people will have most of the power. Harrison Colorado

Ruth Is Asleep

In a rather interesting Reuters/Ipsos poll, the subject of Term Limits has reared its ugly head once again. Oh, no…it’s not the congress we’re talking about now. In light of the Gay Marriage and obamacare decisions, it’s the Supreme Court. And it begs the question whether or not any position in this country should be a life-time appointment.

Federal judgeships and the United States Supreme Court have always been lifetime appointments. It was felt in the early years that if you had to run for the office or you somehow had to face losing your job ever so often that you could be open to being partial and unfair. The way that was devised to get around that was to give you a lifetime appointment.

About politicalsleightofhand

People who know me would say I'm a political junkie. Some say I should run for office. They would be right about the first part, the later however, well let's just put it this way, I'd rather study them than be studied, lol. When I'm not voicing my opinion, I love computers, web surfing, stamps, coins, gardening, reading, and the english language. My wife has put up with me for more than 23 years, I love sitting on our porch with her, overlooking our paradise on water, during the warmer months. We are both spring babies, our favorite time of year is watching our trees and plants wake up and then go through their cycle. My illustration here of who I am depicts, or at least I hope depicts that I'm not just about politics. My heart belongs to God, my wife and my country. I am a warm blooded male American P8triat, who loves his country, his life, being an American, and all the benifits that America has to offer, especially the first Amendment. MY MISSION STATEMENT! "It is the duty of the patriot 2 protect his country from its government". – Thomas Paine
