Even if they do, you still have the problem of Congress passing such measures. That's why I have called for evoking the Article V movement to have the states do it for them
After all, how likely is it that Congress will limit their own personal power? They had no ...[text shortened]... iting corruption as the reason it was necessary. No, apparently they have no such issues. LOL.
And, AGAIN, you are shown to be hiding your true motive, this crap Article V thing, behind a somewhat popular idea like "term limits".
The only reason it's popular is because it seems an automatic (i.e. they don't have to pay attention to candidates and decide for themselves if they are good or bad) way to get rid of the ones they don't like. What people don't get is that it also removes those representatives who are doing good work and standing up to the billionaires and their desire to increase the wage gap. Term limits guarantees a "reset" every few years, and those who finance the most candidates (Republican billionaires) get their policies advanced. Most Democrats run a grass roots campaign with far less financial support, simply because they represent real people
, who don't have a lot of disposable cash to donate to political campaigns. "Term limits" is just code for let's get as many Republicans elected as possible
. Just like this horrible tax bill just passed, this is exactly the wrong way to go for this government that is supposed
to be by, for and of "We the People". It's NOT by, for and of "We the Corporations", but it is becoming that way. Term limits only hurries this process along.
