Term Limits for U.S. Congress and Senate

Petition Text

Introduce legislation to limit members of the U.S. Congress and Senate to no more then two consecutive terms.

Why is this important?

Often people elected to the highest offices in the land do so with good intentions.They plan on going to Washington and working hard to represent their constituency back home. Often over time these intentions are subverted. More of their time is spent raising money from the wealthy, the powerful and their lobbyists. Many turn into career politicians with more power and less interest in doing the Peoples' Work. If they were limited in terms of time, maybe they would actually accomplish what they originally set out to do.


Reasons for signing

  • This should keep the checks and balances in place that we in the U.S. cherish. We do not need career dictators in office. If the wrong people are in office for to long, they can cause lasting damage to the U.S. population.
