On Term Limits
Lately, I’ve been seeing a lot of Facebook posts advocating a constitutional amendment that would put term limits on members of congress. This is completely unnecessary. The constitution, as written, already contains term limits. It’s called reelection and it happens every six years for senators and every two years for congressmen. If you think your congressman’s time should be up, vote for another candidate. But, that’s not what the term limit movement is all about is it. No, it’s about people in Mississippi forcing people in the 12th district of California to choose someone other than Nancy Pelosi, or it’s about people in New York forcing Kentuckians to choose someone other than Mitch McConnell. I wonder how many of the people pushing term limits voted for a six term incumbent in the last election.
