WHO CARES in 2016 – What does it Matter ?!!

TERM LIMITS – NOW!!

votes

Regardless of what happens with our Presidential Election our country will still be a total MESS!! For proof of my statement just look at the last 6.5 years under Obama! Congress is so dysfunctional that even when the whole shebang is under control of ONE party, they get nothing of VALUE accomplished BUT are able to shove legislation down our throats that does HARM to millions upon millions of Americans!

ASK YOUSELVES – Why is our government so dysfunctional?  NOW – look in the mirror – that person you are looking at is LIKELY part of the reason for our problems!

Way to many people are happy just sitting around and accepting what happening around them as long as it doesn’t affect them as individuals! In my opinion, ONE of the major problems we have is the ages of the people that control our government is killing us!  As of August 23, 2015, 5 senators are in their 80s, 18 are in their 70s, 32 are in their 60s!!

Here is some interesting information regarding TERM LIMITS – including the Supreme Court!!

“Reformers during the early 1990s used the initiative and referendum to put congressional term limits on the ballot in 24 states. Voters in eight of these states approved the congressional term limits by an average electoral margin of two to one.[25] It was an open question whether states had the constitutional authority to enact these limits. In May 1995, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5–4 in U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton, 514 U.S. 779 (1995), that states cannot impose term limits upon their federal Representatives or Senators.” More information here:

The average length of service of Members of the House at the beginning of the 113th Congress was 9.1 years (4.6 terms) and for Senators 10.2 years (1.7 terms).18

Below is a link to a page that lists the ages of JUST the Senators and how long they’ve been in office:

We have Congress Persons falling asleep at their desks, reading news papers, playing computer games, barely able to move about because of chronic illness and DYING of old age while in office!

WAKE UP AMERICA!!
