    TERM LIMITS.
    WITH:

    NO PENSION.

    No post-office benefits.

    No special permission to lobby Senators and Congressthings.

    Nothing but two weeks paid vacation a year, a 401(k), and a social security tax.

    But their salary should be sufficient for them to maintain a middle-class home in their home district and housing in a median income section of the District of Columbia.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    1 out of 2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2

    = 1/4,194,304
    = "Heads, Always Heads, Heads Every Time"
    = "Rodents Cheating"

    No. The President is term limited. The House and Senate are not.

    Given the corruption of the entrenched mono-party politiburo....er the Rodents and RINOs of the House and Senate, cutting their time short would at least give us DIFFERENT corrupt faces over time.

    Living in California, it's clear that simple term limits don't limit corruption and they don't stop Rodentism.

    Ending gerrymandering is the key to that, along with repeal of the 17th Amendment...which was hilariously foisted on the public in the name of eliminating Senate corruption. hahaha, right?

    And, as one of the framers said, it's the best way possible to ensure that ONLY the wealthy get elected.

    Another kind of decision. Less strict:
    Minimum wage per hour for eight hour day and food stamps.

    No freebies, pension or medical insurance.
    And they have to pay into SS.
    Being elected, they can't have a second job or income from wife.

    I always don't understand how people do earn so much money in politics.
    Politicians shouldn't be politicians for the money, though. They should be politicians, because they want to make their country better. This is something that people forget all too often.
    America didn't accept this wise rule.

    There should be an universal law that allows politicians to only earn as much as the average person in their country, motivating them to raise the income of the masses (poor) rather than the rich.
    how do you like this idea?

    Bad idea. You'd eventually wind up with a government of welfare recipients.

    Moochers (of all descriptions) have way too much say in government already.
