It’s been said before, that term limits are needed, and what we are witnessing in today’s political climate shows that it is needed now, along with the abolishment of political action committees.
Our political leaders do what is expedient then what is right. If the politicians lack the political will, then the government (we the people) should force a referendum by online petition.
Our forefathers did not envision a government run by career politicians, but by volunteers for a set period of time. What happened recently regarding the closure of the federal government because of the politicians’ egos is a prime example of the need for these changes. And by the way the blame for the shutdown is on all sides of the aisle.
