This is only my observation and opinions, but having followed the follies and
inhabitants of the Swamp we refer to as Washington DC. The main driving force
behind all the backstabbing, battle for power and corruption that has become a
plague is Money. The people we sent to Washington often young and well
meaning soon become a cog in the two party machine that drives the process of
There is a pay to play system that is ruthlessly controlled by the Democrat and
Republican Campaign Committees, special interests and the fossils that have

All new laws, tax codes, and procurement go through a plethora of Committees.
To be appointed membership to a committee, a person has to spend hours on the
phone begging for money, in a cubicle at either the DNCC or the RNCC, since the

I agree 100% on term limits. Can the States legislate term limits or does Congress have to that? We have discussion the other night about that. I thought Congress had to pass that and we all know they won’t. My husband thought that each state could pass term limits on fed positions (US Rep/US Senate).
