With the on going saga of the health care debate, I find it ironic that a senator suffering from brain cancer would be hauled off the operating table to cast his vote to continue debate on overhauling the health care system in this country.
I have already commented on what it takes to fix health care, but now it’s time to address the issue of term limits.
The fact is we already have term limits in this country. It is call re-election. The term limit issue is the symptom and not the problem. The problem is the almost universal apathy of the American electorate. Too many voters don’t seem to care and continue to elect people who still remember when WW II ended. It seems there are still some people in congress who served in that war.
Granted 80 is the old 65, but the fact is voters continue to re-elect senior citizens because they either like what they have or they don’t care.
The fact is Term Limits is a liberal, Trojan Horse position with un-intended consequences if enacted.
The conservative posture of government is: it is not perfect but it works. The liberal position is to completely over hall it changing everything from The Constitution to the Electoral College to form a socialist government.
Liberals love new, young, inexperienced politicians to win elections. Congress is actually not the real ruling body in the country. It’s the career lobbyist.
The most effective way for advancing a liberal agenda is to get laws passed through influencing new elected politicians who don’t yet know where the restroom light is. The older establish congressmen know the ropes and are not as easily influenced.
We must be careful about what we wish for. If we want term limits, then vote out those “old people” who are not supporting your positions. Do not let the “Trojan Horse” of term limits undermine the greatest country in the world.
