Our Political System
I’m getting so feed up with all our politicians now everything they say turns my stomach. Now there blaming each other for the Sequestration bill and the lack of Airline Employees. I can’t believe our President letting and now saying it because of the 87 billion dollar bill which is like 1 percent of our yearly budget. The FAA could have done the Furloughs in a way that wouldn’t have been a problem for travelers. I believe it came down from the administration to allow it to hurt. I’m really pissed of at an Administration that would allow the pain of people to make a point.
I think we should have 2 term limit for congress and the senate. And after serving a term you can’t serve again for 6 years. A term should be limited to 2 years and no more current terms are too long. Why 2 because that’s not enough time for them to get rich from inside information or make shady long-term deals and relationships. Running for office should be a process of no more than 6 months. All money should be limited to 1000 dollar donations. None this super pack funds and charitable donations Or organizations be allowed to donate that have pending bills or legislation in their favor.
I am glad that they at least got together and passed a bill to put some money back in. It’s funny how when it affects them! they can get something done. But if it doesn’t affect them stuff can wait till the cows come home. You can bet it was all of them sitting in the waiting lines at DC airport that got that bill done. Until we change things or cut there salary’s in half. There never going to change it’s just going to get worse as times goes on. That’s why I think we have to change the terms, limits, serve times. And we should have in high school a government course to teach students history and process of elections. I think there should be a minimum IQ test for those casting a vote. To many people who are (dare I say stupid) voting when they shouldn’t.
Ever see Waters, or O’rielly, Stossel when they send people out to ask simple questions about government or history. That scares me there even College students that don’t know what the hell there voting or talking about. Unfortunately a good portion of the voting public is the Idiots of the Occupy Wall Street group !
