Term limits

The news is out: [Sens. Rick Scott (R-Fla.) and Mike Braun (R-Ind.) introduced two sweeping legislative proposals Tuesday to implement a slew of reforms in Washington, including implementing congressional term limits.
The “Make Washington Work” plan intends to reform “the dysfunctional and tired ways of thinking in Washington” with three constitutional amendments and one bill. Among other things, the proposals would institute congressional term limits, an idea that has grown in prominence and support in recent years.
“I’ve been a member of the United States Senate for four months, and it’s as dysfunctional as you think it is – government needs to be completely reinvented. If you were going to create a federal government system today, it sure wouldn’t be what we have now,” Scott said in a statement.
“That career politicians’ gravy train needs to come to an end. It’s clear that now more than ever it will be an uphill climb, but I’m committed to fighting for the people of Florida. I won’t back down.”
“I knew Washington was dysfunctional, gummed up and not moving, but it’s worse than I ever thought. The Make Washington Work plan is a solution that will help unclog the dysfunction in Washington by creating term limits and eliminating automatic pay raises for Members of Congress,” Braun added.]
Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, this is what I have been saying for years. There wouldn’t be a need for such legislation if we had educated voters. This is why I bash stupid voters at every opportunity. The idiots going to the polls are the biggest threat to the security of the US. Evangelicals trying to hijack the government, the NRA conducting business on behalf of Russia, the morons casting their votes in exchange for pork projects are the most dangerous homegrown terrorists.
If you cast your vote because a candidate’s skin color (like Obama, Andrew Gillum, Booker or Kamala) matches yours, you are an idiot. If you vote for Trump because he is a white supremacist and lock children in cages, well you were born an idiot. If you vote the “party line”, you are an idiot. If you vote and have never read the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the Declaration of Independence, you are an idiot. If you vote because your company or a corporation told you so, you are a category 5 idiot. If you cast your vote in order to receive some perceived benefit for yourself, instead of the good of the country, you are an idiot. If you are unemployed because the shithead, you voted for, failed to create jobs, you are an idiot. If you are drinking shitty water from your tap, you are an idiot. If the food you buy is killing you, you are an idiot. If you can’t get the same free healthcare, yet can provide it to your political servants, you are an idiot. If you can’t get laid, well wrong example, blame your ugly ass. If you expect the government to babysit you and dictate what you should do at all hours of the day, well you are a dumbass. If you voted for Lindsey Graham who violated his oath of office, raped the Constitution, obstructed justice and you haven’t initiated a recall of his sorry ass, well, I hope your sister or first cousin denies you sex tonight.
But seriously, folks, the US will never see “term limits” because there are too many imbeciles floating around this country. Remember the quote from George Carlin: “never underestimate the power of stupid people in large numbers”.
