TFP Column: Term Limit Reconsideration

It has been difficult in recent days to keep up with posting, as I was experiencing more than simple technical difficulties. In fact I my computer has achieved room temperature literally and figuratively.

Not to fear however, for while I have been deficient in my postings over the last week, I did manage to borrow some hardware long enough to scribble yet another column for the Toledo Free Press. This week's offering is a follow up to the most recent piece that I did for the TFP on a Fox News poll speaking to the popularity of Congress as well as the popularity of limiting their service. 

I hope that this follow up answers some of the questions (and criticisms) that I have been receiving.

As always, there is a lot going on the this weekend's edition of the TFP, and in those desiring to be up on all that's going on in Toledo and NW Ohio will be anxious to spend some time with Toledo's largest circulation Sunday newspaper.

Here’s a practical Tea Party type strategy to create a “Citizen Congress”

A Congress of career politicians will never represent “We the People”, because their highest priority is getting reelected with the help of Big Money.

But “We the People” have more votes than “Big Money” has, and thus can end Congress as a career for professional politicians.

We can impose single terms every two years, by never reelecting Congress.

Always vote, but only for challengers. Never reelect incumbents.

Keep this up until Congress is mostly “one-termers”, a citizen Congress.

Then keep it up every election, to make a citizen Congress a permanent reality.

Every American’s only intelligent choice is to never reelect anyone in Congress!

The only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to get a cleaned up new politics is

I steadfastly maintain that the mechanism for term limits is already in place. It is called the ballot box.
