Term Limits: The Only Way It Can Work

Just as used to be said about the weather: "Everybody talks about it but no one does anything about it!"

So it is with Term Limits, the quaint notion that will keep politicians from becoming wealthy, lazy, hypocritical, perpetually elected criminals along with their standard psychopathic issues. "Quaint notion" because in order to become Law, the very ones who will be adversely effected must vote for it.
Any such solution requiring the force of a law is DOA; career suicide is a non-starter in every occupation I can think of.

But how about this: a local ‘citizen’s groups’ comprised of the candidates’ constituents who demand everyone in the race take a Forensic Audit Oath comparing their net worth prior to running and prior to running for re-election? The Candidate will be required to explain the sources of any sudden increases during his term. Along with being absolutely local registered voters, the group would have to be dedicated energetic activists, sufficiently funded, and most of all: media savvy, in order to ensure the Candidate gets all the coverage s/he so richly deserve in the event of failure/refusal to publicly commit to it. A local popular talk show host/station would help; ditto local/regional editorial support. Making sure the “Oath” commitment gets thorough media coverage is the key to its “enforcement” without a Law in place. Robust social media exposure could help similar groups spontaneously combust throughout all areas – no government (or law) required.


This is the essence of Sam Adams' comment: "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men."

Go organize that "irate, tireless minority", set some local brushfires and you will be amazed at what can be accomplished. It all starts with You. Not "Us". You. The Us come later. Except for the "freedom" part, your enemies are doing this every day.

From The Next President

To any aspiring Democratic politician:

If you'd like to be President one day --  Maybe soon --  Put the following in a full page ad in the WaPo, get yourself booked on some talk shows and read this: 


An Open Letter from a Democratic Politician to all Democratic Politicians

My fellow Democrats – Let's face it; we blew it. Lead by Speaker Pelosi, Chairman Schiff and Chairman Nadler, these past 3 years we have conducted ourselves in a way that has severely divided America. Continuing with this impeachment hoax – and it is a hoax and we all know it - will only destroy the Democratic Party and impugn all the great principles we once stood for. Our Leadership – and our so-called 'friends' in the media – have strongly encouraged, even threatened us, if did not 'toe the line'. As a result, regardless of where you're from or how long you've been in office, very few of us will be returning after the coming elections.


We have only one choice to save America and th…

My Vote This Time

Maybe if I post it here, the phone will stop ringing, the mailbox will unclog and everyone who really really wants to know will….know.

Actually, I’m really excited about my guy! Can’t say I’ve ever been this stoked about a candidate! How could anyone not be?
Unlike the Dems, he has definitive, articulate plans for the future;

Unlike Warren, he has no doubts about his lineage;

Unlike Biden, he has never flip-flopped on essential issues, plagurized someone else's work, does push-ups, has had a face life or sports hair plugs;

Unlike Kamala Harris, he became a success the old fashioned way: he earned it. While standing upright.

Unlike Spartacus, while born in New Jersey, he is not delusional, minds his manners and maintains a full head of hair;

Unlike Bernie Sanders, he is unlike Bernie Sanders;

The same can be said for the rest of the Democratic Wanna-Be's.

The person I’m voting for has always been courteous and responsive to my queries and honestly concerned about my concerns for the fu…
