  •  Term limits are NOT the answer (2+ / 0-)

    you are fooling yourself.  

    What happens when legislators are constantly overturned is that there becomes a scaffolding of aides who hold the institutional memory for those organizations.  People do not vote for aides, they vote for candidates - forcing the institutional memory behind the scenes further separates voters from those who craft legislation.

    At least as it is now, you can vote out bastards.  Empower an infrastructure behind the scenes and you can no longer vote it away.
