There seems to have been considerable toleration of unethical, immoral, and
illegal behavior by members of the Senate and House by other members on both
sides of the political aisle over the years. It makes me wonder if any
normal, moral, hard-working, law-abiding people go into politics or if they
are ALL just a bunch of greedy, me-first, self-serving, egotistical, morally
bankrupt walkin' talkin' rectums.
I know I probably have my rose-colored glasses on but, these people are
supposed to represent US, not themselves. They all seem motivated first by
what's good for them, then by what's good for their particular party, and
finally, if they get around to it, what's good for the American people. And
sadly, a good bit of the blame lies with us, the voting constituency. We
keep voting these jackals back into office.
I think term limits of two terms for both the Senate and House would not be
a bad thing. True, it wound reduce the experience level but it might not be
a bad price to pay since it would also reduce the impact of the greedy,
dishonest, power-hungry, etc, etc. It would also provide an avenue for
getting rid of them, even when we, the voters, don't have the guts or common
sense to vote them out ourselves.
OK, rant mode off.
