Career politicians are indeed a problem. However there is one more problem that is rarely discussed and that is because it is more secretive or not as open to voters and that is "lobbyists." Many politicians get rich from lobbyists by passing bills that will benefit the interests of the lobbyists in exchange for trips, cash or whatever the lobbyists propose. These "favors" are often attached to bills in exchange for promised support when it comes time to vote on the major bill. I realize that there are many benefits of having lobbyists but that's a big reason we have so many ridiculous bills that politicians accept because they know that the time will come when they might want to get a bill passed that will benefit their constituency. Term limits would go a long way toward mitigating some of these problems. How to get it done? That is another major hurdle.

Those are statutory limits in office unless voted back in and they can be voted in any number of times..

I mean something like 6 yr period when achieved no more allowed... President 8 years everyone else 6 and SC Justice 10 years ..

Good day to you..🌲☃️🎅🏻



He knows what term limits are. At least I think he does. Libs will do or say anything that maintains their agenda. I think a good limit on Supreme Court justices would be to terminate them when they start falling asleep during SCOTUS discussions. How about that?

Exactly, Ruth Bader-Ginsburg is a prime example for SCOTUS term limits...

The Dems are really desperate with Ginsberg.
How much longer will they be able to stand her up?

I'm with U Bernie. The young people of today have somehow twisted and warped the meaning of Fascism and clearly can't delineate nor understand the difference between it and Nationalism as President Trump has identified. However using a child's definition or version of the definition of Nationalism: "a feeling that people have of being loyal to and proud of their country often with the belief that it is better and more important than other countries" so it isn't to difficult for Kev to understand. I would like for him to describe to me the problem with being a Nationalist as an American.

We a are greater than most other country's simply stated. Beside the facts bare out that bottom line our country's economy is the basis for the world economy, it's growth and success, it all starts with the US $$$$.😉 Just answer this young Kev, what other country in the world has ever freed as many people as we have? What other country in the world has come to the aide of those in dire need as a result of natural disasters or internal strife as we do? What other country in the world has after defeating a nation that attacked and declared war on us, all but rebuilt that same nation? What other country in the world takes in as many immigrants providing them the possibility and hope of a life better than they could never possibly have in their motherland? What other country in the world has spent more of our treasure and young American lives, men/women to ensure that a person can sit safe and secure in the confines of their home and community and criticize and peacefully, and often violently, protest the very government that provides the freedom for them to to do so without fear of imprisonment or worse, when peaceful, no matter how stupid and ignorant they may sound to intelligent rational thinking people?

As for Fascism, todays young people are totally clueless. Although to be fair even in my youth "E.B. White wrote in The New Yorker in 1946 that the meaning of fascist had degenerated to the point where “a Fascist is a man who votes the other way.” This is obviously where we are still at today. But for young Kev, “it is a political philosophy, movement, or regime (as that of the Fascisti) that exalts nation and often race above the individual and that stands for a centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader, severe economic and social regimentation, and forcible suppression of opposition.” The reality for Kev should be "centralized autocratic government headed by a dictatorial leader", I would remind Kev that although his silly snowflake ass can't get over the fact, President Trump is a legitimate, dully elected President of the American people. He can twist the election all he wants. But DJT was elected in the manner prescribed by the Constitution of the USA, like it or not. And I have yet to see a severing of economic and social regimentation or forcible suppression of opposition. In fact to the contrary it is the DemSocialist Party of Pelosi, Schumer, Waters, Warren, Biden, Clinton and of course Obammy that have been, since Day 1 and his inauguration, that have been attempting to forcibly suppress their opposition with their constant and incessant degrading comments of the POTUS and his family, wasteful witch hunt investigations and constant obstruction of any efforts by President to move the country forward from the malaise, stagnation and corruption of the Obammy years. But I guess when the shoe is on the DemSocialist foot that's not Fascism, that's simply politics.

Yes, I would identify myself as a "Nationalist". I would identify Kev as a "Fascist" simply by his own statement of "Shut down fascism and nationalism." I'm proud to be a Nationalist, can he say the same of being a Fascist as demonstrated by his comments?

"Sure that's what we need, a Congress of Amateurs." - Bad Bob

One of the reasons the The founders designed the Constitution was to stay away from career politicians.
House of Representatives - 2 years (for a reason )
President- 4 years
Senators - 6 years (1/3 every 2 years )
Supreme Court For life (OOPS?)


Do you know the reasoning behind lifers of the Supreme Court??

Believe it or not it was to maintain continuity and consistency amoung the rulings of Constitutionality.. Not every day issues that are truly of the state but until diversity of Constitutional rights are in question...

Now our once truly immune justices are swayed by politics and they have allowed a serious breech..The constitution is vague on any term . ... The constitution says that Justices shall hold their offices during good behavior. It does not say they can not be replaced by a new nomination.....Think about that for a moment and what would bevinvolved in sudden law that said for all newly appointed the term is 10 years max.....

Shut down socialism and communism. Ie; the Democratic Party.

As long as nationalism means America first, I am a nationalist. You are either a nationalist or a globalist. I, personally don’t want this one world government that would be run by a bunch of asses in the U.N.

Kevyn is what is known as a liberal Democrat hater. I don't mean that he hates Democrats, he just hates anyone not a Democrat. Or, more accurately, he hates anyone who likes Trump. So there you have it. Welcome to OPP. Glad to have you, Bcon. Merry Christmas.
