Action Americana
The rise of political careerism in modern Washington is a drastic departure from what the founders intended of our federal governing bodies.  To effectively ‘drain the swamp,’ we believe it's past time to enact term limits for Congress." ~ Florida Governor and Former Congressman Ron DeSantis
Consequences Of Lifetime Tenure
Some of us are supportive of politicians with decades-long tenure because they support those issues which are important to us.
Regardless, we must also consider the damage that lifetime-tenure poses.   It allows self-serving politicians to prevent or disrupt any legislation designed to make the lives of most Americans equitable — socially and economically.
If we look closely, lifetime-tenure has not been beneficial to the welfare of the majority of Americans.
It has made it possible for individuals like Mitch McConnell, Chuck Grassley, Ron Johnson, Marco Rubio and others, to derail legislation meant to benefit all Americans — while getting wealthier!
Mitch McConnell's unprecedented refusal to allow Ex-President Obama to appoint his own Supreme Court Justice is ample proof of the need for Term Limits.
Ask yourself the quesion: "How much better would Americans' lives be if the above-mentioned Senators had been "termed" out of office?"
Benefits Of Rational Term Limits
  • Lifetime Tenure: eliminated!
  • House members serve: two consecutive 4-year terms maximum
  • Senators serve: two consecutive 6-year terms maximum
  • President serves: one 6-year term maximum
  • Reelection: all can run again after being out of office for 1 term
  • Fundraising: permited only in last year of term — allows more time to legislate
  • Dark Money: reduces quid-pro-quo fundraising, especially during final term in office
  • Qualified Candidates: more will be able to run for office
  • Public Trust: faith in our political system will increase
