Term limits would help drain the swamp

Term limits would help drain the swamp

Elections do not provide the same solutions that term limits would achieve.

Draining the swamp should start by passing term limits for congressmen and senators.

President Trump’s task to rebuild the country, to instill optimism, to free the people from progressive’s over regulation is going to be monumental.

He is not only going to fight liberals but republicans that may be closet Democrats or even closet progressives.

Entrenched members of Congress are going to defend their turf like a mama gator defending her nest of baby gators. In their many years in Congress, these professional politicians have grown deep roots that attached themselves to all columns of power. They protect each other.

They nurture newcomers that will soon be converted to the good life in D.C. The best solution to stop professional politicians is term limits.

Entrenched politicians say that term limits already exist that it is called elections, but that is untrue.

Just look at the same old tired faces we constantly see in Congress: McConnell, Graham, Ryan, Schumer, Pelosi, Waters. We need change now.

Elections do not provide the same solutions that term limits would achieve.
