OK, let's take an informal poll. Out of those who think we should throw the bums out, how many vote against the incumbents in every election? I'm talking about candidates for the US House of Representatives and the US Senate, known collectively as Congress.
We don't need statutory term limits -- we have the ballot box. It's pretty much our only power against these rascals, but they nullify it by buying our votes with our money.
I suspect that too many people say, "Yeah, Congress is corrupt, but our guy got us a new manufacturing plant, so I'm going to vote to re-elect him."
Or, "Well, I don't like my party's guy, but the other guy is worse, so I'll vote to keep our guy."
The only way to get their attention is to vote out a large number of these guys, repeatedly. Even if it means putting into office someone you despise. Un-elect our Congress!
