Hi guys and gals, from tenurecorrupts.com
Now that the latest political buzzword is 'CHANGE', I guess I'm gonna have to get on the bandwagon...
I say the CHANGE that is needed in our country is to end the permanent status quo in Congress.
How many of you realize that the average reelection rate in the House of Representatives is over 98% ? And in the Senate it is over 92% ?
Do you really, really think that Congress does such a good job that it deserves to be reelected over and over again, ad infinitum ? Something is wrong !
Doesn't this sound like Congress has a real need for CHANGE ?
Since they are not likely to ever let us term limit them, we have to do it ourselves. And it is easy to do. We simply have to NEVER REELECT THEM !
During this Presidential Election, vote for whoever you want for president. But when it comes to your members of Congress in either House, or either party, vote only for challengers, never for incumbents.
If we succeed in knocking down their reelection rates to the low 70 or 80 percentile rates, they will get the message and let us have a constitutional amendment for term limits for Congress.
Now THAT would be REAL CHANGE !!!
