Common sense Term Limits

capitol

Abraham Lincoln said, “that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth”.  A politician’s job is to serve the people.  When a politician chooses to make a career out of politics, they care more about their career than America.  We need fresh ideas in Washington, and the best way to do it is to create term limits.  Our first president, George Washington, knew that term limits were the right thing for America because he refused calls from the people to run for a third term.

I propose the following maximum term limits:

  • 5 terms in Congress (10 years total)
  • 2 terms for Senate (12 years total)
