Lets Dance Crazy

CLICK ON PICTURE FOR THE D.C. DANCE REVIEW!

I know, the house cleaning already started with the last election. But, I’m talking term limits, not just new blood. You get them both going in this country and recruit some kind of Julian Assange type guy (but without the illegal part) to track progress online, daily, of each of our new elected politicians while kicking the rears of the old guys (the permanents) at the same time. Then you have something that makes more sense.

I personally would love to have the job of hollering “don’t let the door hit your you know what” as they are forced out under term limit law we need so desperately. I’m talking a little more rotation here like the way it was when George Washington was still around as our first Pres. Take a couple years off of farming the farm, do your duty, then LEAVE! Sure, we may see more Slurpee’s and a few guys wearing those stocking caps, or even a youngster letting his pants “hang” a little low by bringing the average age down to a 20’s to 60’s range versus the 50’s to 90’s range we have now. Different generations have different cultural backgrounds some will have to adjust to. But, it would be better I am sure of it.

Instead, I’ve watched some come in when I was young, and now that I am middle aged, they are still there! I really don’t want to watch C-Span with all those wheel chairs and breathing devices for the senior political muggy mucks who decided long ago that once elected, they would die in office. Please, resign and check into a nursing home or go back to the farm… or back home if you can still remember where that is, BEFORE it is time to “buy the farm”. Just the savings alone on the free health care our elected officials get would be mind numbing if we could cover them at young or middle age, not as old geezers hanging on by a thread up until their last breath (still in office).

Leave them in there just long enough to sustain “ideas” into “action” and then kick them out. We have plenty of inventive, creative, forward thinking citizens to step in and carry on the torch of any good program started. And, to get rid of programs that are not fair, or were born out of favoritism or bribes to pay back a certain group or person who helped someone get elected. Which brings up the money. Set the same ground rules for the political seasons of pre-election advertising. Let it fit the budget of just about anyone, not just those who already have millions in the bank. That is not fair because only the “rich” get elected. And because they stay in office for decades, they just get richer with special interest group payoffs, endorsements, speaking engagements and so on.

Could term limits cause questionable law, temporary fixes, cancellation of programs that work, or just plain general chaos?

Well, probably not any worse then the “crazy” we NOW HAVE!  And there is one more reason to throw the permanent politicians out of office. They quit listening to us. They ignore the “pulse” of the country. We the people are not being properly heard anymore. Why don’t you send your “old” politician a new set of hearing aid batteries. Maybe they will get the hint if thousands do that.
