Federal legislators shouldn't be allowed to serve twice in a row
With the current national deficit that the federal government is trying to solve, here's a thought and an issue that should be considered.
Although the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate are elected officials, the voters seem totally blind to the fact that they are steadfastly stuck in their ways, yet they're consistently re-elected.
The House of Representatives and Senate should have a re-election limitation, only being able to serve one term after which they must skip a term before being elected once again.
Doing this would thereby create a rotation throughout the House and Senate, bringing the voters fresh views and new ideas. The new faces may very well have suggestions and perceptions as to how to handle the deficit.
The way things are now, the voters are stuck with the same old
officials. They may be elected, but these same old faces are all
unyielding, uncompromising and unwilling to consider any new alternative
options to solving the national deficit.
The majority of them have served more than one term and they're set
in their ways. This is definitely a case where the metaphor, "You can't
teach an old dog new tricks," can be seen in action!
Problem is once elected politicians are in office, we, the voters, no
longer have any power or control over what they do.
Americans need to be extremely conscientious when voting because once
elected we can't change it. We're stuck!
Pres. should be impeached for deeming DOMA unconstitutional
President Obama has announced that his adminstration will no longer
enforce or defend the Defense of Marriage Act because he has determined
that the act is unconstitutional.
It is the administrative branch of government's job to enforce and
defend any existing law. It is the judicial branch that determines the
constitutionality of a law.
So our president won't do his job, but presumes to take on the
responsibility of the judicial branch.
Impeachment anybody? It is long overdue.
