Asking a member of congress to vote on their own term limit is like asking a ghetto hood rat to put time limits on how long him and his gang can run rough shod over their neighborhood.

Mr Ghetto thug, after 2 years, you have to leave the area and pass the neighborhood onto the next thug.

Career politicians are nothing more than gangs of power hungry criminals.

This is why the people are given the power to bear arms so they can resist such a power grab.

This will not be the first or the last time the population will have to rise up to defend their liberty and the republic.
 Quoting: Dr. Manhattan



I do not disagree with this, but I am more from the school of thought that in asymmetrical wars (the state vs. people) sometimes you have go full asymmetrical. Ghandi said he would have lead an armed revolt against england if his people had not already been disarmed.

But he still got the job done, in a perhaps more lasting way. without even considering the spiritual aspects.

The american revolutionaries did not defeat the British empire in 1776. The British simply did a cost benefit analysis and paused the conflict. This allowed them to let the USA recover somewhat, provide more resources to the crown, up to and including conscripts for their other, more important initiatives. This lead to the war of 1812, where they could have again won decisively. But chose not to.

Smart parasites do not kill the host. But if the host stops providing resources to parasites, they will often move on.

Re: MAXIMUM ONE TERM LIMIT for all elected positions at all levels of government: Local, State, & Federal!!!
One term would merely remove any lever, however weak, voters still have over the crooks. Who is stopping us from throwing the crooks out but us. If New Yorkers are stupid enough to keep picking Bloomberg, then they deserve whatever comes to them from the psycho nanny they picked.

On the other side of the coin, why would you restrict our freedom to keep Ron Paul, or Rand Paul, or any other honest guy we get lucky with, as long as he wants to serve? Imagine if Ron Paul was just a two year congressman back in 1970s and you never heard of him again -- that would have been an improvement? For FED, I suppose.

With one term system, those who buy politicians now, would still buy one termers as before, and once bought and elected, they don't need to worry about backlash from the voter and can screw you as much they want. Why do you imagine voters would become smarter and be able to see through their lies and pick the good guys. Figuring that out with guys who never held office is much harder.

Imagine politician as some kind of parasite (that shouldn't be much of a strain), say mosquito. Would you rather spend a week in a bedroom with the same mosquito throughout that week, or would you rather a new hungry mosquito replace the filled up one every hour of the night?

The less freedom we have in politics the less freedom we will have in all other areas, like bolting one leg of a chair to the floor -- the other three legs will have much less freedom to move as well. Adding more chains on voter choice, such as prohibiting you from voting for Ron Paul again, doesn't make you more free. It makes you less free.

It's as great an idea as making everyone have exactly the same income, unrelated to their contributions (the crooks and the saints get the same reward). Or as great as mandating that all students get C, no matter how they do on tests.

Bad plan. Democracy is set up so that criminals can obtain office, loot as much as possible, and get out before they can be held accountable. Turning up the refresh rate on the amorphous leadership positions will only make things worse. You cannot fix this broken system by thinking within the system. It must be completely different.

A monarchy would be good. National socialism would be best.

Re: MAXIMUM ONE TERM LIMIT for all elected positions at all levels of government: Local, State, & Federal!!!
edit: I mistakenly titled this thread "Abolish all term limits..." which is perhaps incorrectly worded, but certainly misleading as to my intention. I propose that there be a maximum of one term limit for all elected positions. What do you think?


This, I do believe would have manifold benefits at the individual level and at the societal level.

First of all, this is the main tenet behind this proposal:
Elected office, aka "Politician" is not a career and it should not be.

If term limits were abolished, many of the power-hungry, selfish, self-styled "elite" would no longer even run for elected office. Abolishing term limits would also encourage more truly civic-minded individuals to run for office, for the original purpose, "to serve."

The glory and the power, and the temptation to allow corruption would be drastically lessened, which would result in less nepotism, less wasteful spending, less no-bid and backroom dealings using taxpayer monies.

The population at-large would be forced to pay more attention to politics, and fulfill civic obligations, duties, and responsibilities.

Different types of people would run for elected office at all levels: local, state, and federal, and this in turn would perhaps open up new avenues of thinking and re-instill the most traditional of American values: ingenuity.

You might say, but yes, someone who is terribly un-qualified for the role might be elected!
To which my reply is two-fold:
1. Do you not think this has ever happened before?
2. If someone is massively unqualified for an elected position, then as soon as their term is over, they will be replaced, guaranteed, with the abolition of term limits.

You might then also say, but the people who are most qualified would not have a chance to remain in office, thereby doing much good for the nation!
To which I would reply:
There are certainly others just as good, if not better than this "King Arthur" who would suffer from abolition of term limits. Again, politician/elected official should not be a career.



I am interested in what you have to say. What do you think about this proposal?

You have some nice ideas to address an intractable problem. One thing to keep in mind is the dependence of the decisionmakers on other for information: staff, lobbyists, bureaucrats. The less experienced the decisionmaker, the more dependent s/he is on these others and other others.

On the other hand, when Illinois had multimember districts, state legislators outside of Chicago tended to be classic citizen legislators -- they served for a few terms (in general, but there were always individual exceptions) and went back to their lives. In those days, most also identified themselves by their real life professions.

After singlemember districts were mandated, the legislature morphed into a body of folks who increasingly identified themselves as full-time state legislators and who made their careers in government. Leadership controlled the purse strings and maps made primaries rather than elections the real contests. Politics became increasingly professionalized and careerist and intractably partisan.

Just some thoughts for your project.

Good luck and best wishes.

 Quoting: The Sonic Dreamer

Sounds good, here are some more ideas.


1. You can serve a maximum (1) term of (6) years in any given office/position.
2. You can run for another office/position only after you have completely finished the term of your current office/position.
3. You cannot campaign for another office while serving another.
4. Campaigning can only occur within 90 days prior to the election.
5. Your salary/benefits package will be the same as the median wage earner of the area you represent.

Compare and contrast ...

Thread: American graffiti tagger sentenced to 8 years in Prison. Armed Illegal Alien drug dealer grows 2,000 marijuana plants, gets 2 years in JAIL! PIN

... To what happened to john corzine, chris dodd, and any other of the politicians who created the economic collaspe.

Basically, a teen kid gets 8 years in prison. The judge (rightly) scolds him "Why didn't you trash your moms house ?! Why didn't you deface your girlfreinds house? Why didn't you deface you best freinds house?! ..." she goes on, pointing forcefully at every one of his character witnesses. " ... instead you had to destroy the property and peace of mind of every other person in this town ..."

The politicians mentioned caused far more permanent damage, and they were treated like royalty during their "debriefings" on the "matters."

Okay...

So you vote for people to manage you? Or do you vote for people that have your best interest? What does that do for the guy whose best interest didn't win? Isn't that a form of fascism to have to abide to rules you never voted for but because your neighbor did , you now have to accept?

This doesn't seem like freedom to me. I think maybe I'll just ignore the rules I don't like and just avoid voting.

The president should be changed to one five year term. For giving up re-election, I'll give them an extra year. The vice president can't be president he/she serves with the president one time.

The rest of those bastards can stay the same, but no re election.

Also, if your father, sibling, spouse, et al gets elected president then you can't run.

No, instead of a public execution, instead a public shaming will be in order.

Tarred and feathered in public, on the steps of congress, and perhaps two days in the stockade, with an armed security force to prevent any violence to be done to the body of the guilty, but certainly people would be free to express their anger/disgust/displeasure.

Re: MAXIMUM ONE TERM LIMIT for all elected positions at all levels of government: Local, State, & Federal!!!
Go back to the ORIGINAL governing documents, The Delcaration, The Constitution for the united states of America (1789 not 1871) and The Federalist Papers - the only paper we accept as proof upon matters of law in America (unless you count the one I authored and directly entered to SCOTUS as SCOTUS accepted me and my work as an authority):

The numbers are stacked the way they are for reasoning; it's good math and they balance and leverage power but that is dependent upon YOU executing your duty as you're supposed to apply logic, reason and ration to your vote; WHY are you voting for criminals over and over who are claerly legally insane? WHY do you participate in the same insanity by paying tribute to these people and in so doing support them and their fake, phony, shadow government that was officially dissolved in 2008 upon my direct filing? STOP voting for them and STOP paying tribute disguised as just taxation when its anything but just as paper money is as phony as the 1871 incorporation of DC is; it's a fantastical idea that is 'real' in your heads only; it has no actual value but your currency - your vote - does.

You may vote for anybody at all for President and Commander as its then up to that person to preserve, protect and defend YOU in court; if they fail then you recall them by exercising your vote and unseating them via lawsuit. Your vote is your check and balance: YOU have no limits but they do as that's human potential. All authority belongs to The People not to the dead institution as the commission is pre-existing and you are born into it; you do not need anybody's paper permission slip: you are alive and have a mind of your own but the institution does not. All you need to do is act upon your ownership of the knowledge as that then is the proof. YOU & YOUR LIFE ARE THE ABSOLUTE PROOF!

If 60 million people wish to act insanely by installing crooks let 'em and then you can and may stop paying taxes...they the US governemnt does not exist in actuality and is a lie - a fantasy - so they cannot and will not do anything as all they the US and Obama Jr. can do is what they already did: default while simultaneously pleading out.

About 1,000 students are not going to my local school as expected so now they have to shave almost 7 million off of their "budget" and they're screaming that they "can't". Their math is: 1,000 = 7 million. Do you see how much damage to the enemy one taxpayer who objects can and may cause? Recently I kicked it to them by...giving up my 'private' health insurance voluntarily. WHo'S gonna make me pay a penalty for running around uninsured? For lawfully opting out? Who's this big, bad monster who can make you pay tribute??? Who's gonna take you to court if you lawfully opt out of tribute? By exactly worded law you are OBLIGATED to opt out of tribute, duh, as that's how this whole rights of British America argument began, over title and taxes thus your vote.

Changing the numbers re the Offices - any Office - sounds good but its not; it's an easy way out and it does not work and never will. How do you think we ended up with lame duck Presidents? We enacted term limits where there were none. You lamed ducked yoruselves. You glass ceilinged yourselves.

you NEVER play with the original numbers as they are logical and they are good math; once you play with those numbers you corrupt what was designed to be perfect and is as it matches universal law if you know the correct aplication as well as the math. The only time you can play with the numbers and it works to your advantage - to your benefit - is when you protest unjust taxation not when you apply term limits.

Remember: The original version of US Law is good or legally solid not the 1871 version. The 1871 version restates the EP&DP clauses as it (they the US) means and intends to enslave you; it works exactly opposite to what lawyers claim. I kid you not: There's a legal theory known as "selective incorporation" that arose out of the 1871 ruins that demands you act mentally ill and insanely by picking and choosing which TRUTHS to believe or not believe; you have to actually become mentally ill and/or insane to go here as it demands that you deny reality. But judges "selectively believe in" selective incorporation. Their personal beliefs thus their actions are incongruent and inconsistent with US & universal law as they drove thmselves insane. As they're a part of the US not America or so they insist.

I once heard Barney Frank b*tching to Charlie Rose about the original numbers as Frank was crying in his beer and as they're both ignorant. Why, they can't abuse you if they have to re-elect 2/3 of the Senate!!! 'WHY is that?', Rose asked, 'Why those numbers in that order?' TO BALANCE AND LEVERAGE POWER & AUTHORITY THAT'S WHY & KEEP IT IN OUR HANDS but authoritarian ruler Frank screamed, "BLAME JAMES MADISON!" I was rolling and I still invoke this idea only I say, "If you're insane then take Barney Frank's best medical and legal advice and blame James Madison but if you're sane take my advice and credit James Madison."

Wanna wield your vote as a weapon of mass creation? W/o term limits upon who you can and can't vote elect as President and Commander? without limits upon the blessings of liberty that you may secure?

HINT HINT!!! "DC" and "US" and "The United States" are the PAID Officers who are not the government but delusionally claim they are and who draw their salary from tribute collected as "taxes"; "America" and "Americans" are the UNPAID Officers known as Voters who are the government and who are the tax base; The Bill Of Rights merely delineates the powers of the UNPAID Officers versus the powers of the paid Officers as The Constitution delineates the powers of the PAID Officers; there's no giant disconnect bewteen the two as YOU are the Officers as ALL of this arises from The People and ultimately from The exactly named just Creator. You become corrupted or not as its your choice. After the Chief Justice and/or The President and Commander comes YOU. Your legal capacity is your vote! To limit a President and Commander is to limit your own selves, get it? Ideally all of the crooks or potential crooks are 'caught' between you and the person acting as the lawful rightful President and Commander no matter who sits in the physcial chair behind the physical desk. As a nation of People you NEED to be able to elect anybody at all in order to maintain the balance of power and in order to leverage authority against paid Officers. PAID Officers not unpaid Officers should be subject to term limits with the exception of the President & Commander as that's what you pit against the criminal element; you either pit that person against the crooks or you pit yourself against the crooks as your one vote is equivalent to Executive Order. This is WHY the Founders did not set term limits for you or your vote or the President and Commander other than human life expectancy, so that you could rise from the ashes unlike any other formerly great government that came before you.

BIGGEST HINT OF ALL: When you file a SCOTUS Petition? when you file as In Re You or as You Versus the US? The US not SCOTUS responds as the US or the Fed IS the Respondent; if you file as In Re the US not SCOTUS still responds as the US either preserves the right or waives the right...SCOTUS isn't the Respondent and isn't anybody's personal hired guns and SCOTUS cannot act until or uless the US responds as if nothign else how can it act upon what it does not know? SCOTUS works for The People as they are people and they hold original jurisdiction seats but you, A People, must file. IT'S A FIVE PAGE FORM A CHILD COULD FILL OUT. If you file directly then it goes to the Chief Justice directly - no case conference would occur - as that's the process, as we don't take popular votes and as if the US defaults then WHO'S left holding the bag, the Office?
Y-O-U.

So: VOTE FOR YOURSELF!!! An actual American is infinite and immortal in spite of physical death.
