Letter to the editor: The Career Politician

Opinion-icon-for-website[1]To the Editor:

Could there ever be a better time to take up the banner of term limits in Washington, D.C.?

Our system of government was designed to correct itself in the event of any type of radicalized house, senate or executive branch. The genius of our constitution is far right or far left ideas are debated in order to bring them into the middle so both ideas blend together for the betterment of all of us.

Our founding fathers could never have envisioned the political cancer called the “Career Politician.” I couldn's imagine Washington or Madison in their wildest dreams envisioning anyone staying in office for decades and allowed to run up a deficit of $17 trillion dollars. Politicians spend so much time trying to keep their jobs they have lost the concept of honor in public service. It has gotten to the point we pay them to campaign and party with lobbyist. Law upon law is passed to make them look like they are doing something.

Every election cycle brings in new blood and new ideas that instantly get tainted by the old blood of the McCain's and Boehner's (just conform), the idiocy of Nancy Pelosi (we need to pass it to understand it), and the arrogance of this president (we won's negotiate). The fact that these types of people still have their jobs is a testimony as to how far down the path of complacency we have traveled.
