For decades, voters have been deceived into thinking that professional politicians are preferable to citizen legislators, in defiance of the system instituted by our forefathers, designed to limit the absolute power that corrupts absolutely.
An NBC/ Wall Street Journal poll released today shows that 56% of registered voters think the entire Congress should be replaced. Perhaps, Americans are beginning to realize the best solution to such things as influence peddling, lobbying, PAC’s, 24/7 campaigning, and ignoring the public, has been available all along.
An obvious reason for elections is to remove people that fall short in performance and integrity, otherwise, politicians would be elected once and hold an office for life. Lifetime officeholders are not what The Framers intended and recent history demonstrates their wisdom in realizing this. ZERO INCUMBENTS!
