Throw The Bums Out
Despite what you might have read or might believe, the Presidential campaign of 2016 is not over. Far from it. Donald Trump’s supporters are a rabid bunch and will turn out en masse on November 8th to vote. Just because “the Donald” continues to shoot himself in the foot, do not think his support has waned. No one who is voting for Trump is doing so because of his personality or his moral correctness. They are voting for Trump as a protest against the establishment. Even Trump believes that if turnout is low, he could still win the Presidency. He proves it every day trotting out new policy proposals and talking about what he wishes to accomplish during his first hundred days in office.
One of his recent policy proposals is supporting term limits. Whenever politicians don’t like establishment politics and especially during “change elections” the issue of term limits seems to come up. I actually used to be a proponent of term limits but have changed my stance on that old chestnut. I will try and put my thoughts in terms even “the Donald” can understand. If you have an employee that started at your company at the lowest level and over a period of 10 or 12 years worked their way up to a position of power and influence in your company, would you fire them just because they had longevity with your organization? Of course not. Like it or not, politics is a career like any other and people with experience and knowledge should not be cast aside because of something as stupid as term limits. Government is not for amateurs. Besides, we already have term limits in this country, they are called elections. If a politician is not doing their job, they should be voted out.
And speaking of legislators who don’t do their jobs, let’s talk about all of those Republican Senators who have refused to do their jobs of advising and consenting on Supreme Court nominees. Every Senator who has blocked hearings on Obama’s Supreme Court nominee should rightly be defeated in November. The case is pure and simple, they are not doing their jobs and their employers (the American people) should fire them for gross neglect of their duty.
