I personally believe that term limits is a good thing but cannot solve the entire problem. There also has to be restraints or limitations on lobbying and lobbyist’s ability to buy and divert or legislators focus and loyalty to their constituents. In addition, the Supreme Court in its infinite wisdom has allowed those who would subvert the process of democracy to remain anonymous and allows them to contribute vast amounts of money to reelection campaigns for the purpose of obtaining favorable legislation for their purposes which may or may not be in line with what the majority wants or needs. Yes, our legislators have been bought and paid for. Our Democracy has been sold to the highest bidder and our representatives have prostituted themselves in direct contradiction to their oath of office. The American people have been lied to and deceived by the very people they have put their trust in to legislate on their behalf and best interest. Shame on them for selling out to the highest bidder. Shame on us for allowing it to happen.
