In response to my blog item asking what it means to be a Republican, I received a response from Nelson Walker, an outspoken advocate of citizen-imposed term limits on all politicians.
Considering that both political parties and their proffered candidates have brought us to the brink of catastrophe, Nelson’s idea for taking back our nation from the corrupt, complacent and chaotic politicians has a great deal of merit.
His plan, while not perfect, sends a very, very clear message that America belongs to Americans and not to the politicians who are operating in and for their own self-interest, the interests of the party and the interests of those special interests who can supply campaign funding and voter support at election time. The American people come dead last – being almost superfluous to the process of governing except at election time.
In his own words …
First, we must stop reelecting Congress!!!
1. Don’t reelect anyone in Congress. Get all your friends to do the same.
2. Always vote, but only for the strongest challengers regardless of party.
3. If your incumbent runs unopposed, vote for his strongest challenger, regardless of party. Especially, never reelect an unopposed incumbent!!
4. If Congress has not passed a term limits bill by 2014, repeat this in ‘16, ‘18.
Our only choice is to NEVER REELECT them. All of them! They will definitely get the message, sooner rather than later.
The only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to get a truly new Congress and a new politics is :
In other words, don't let anyone serve more than one term until Congress passes a term limits bill!
For those of you who think this is a good idea, you may want to visit Nelson Walker’s site www.TenureCorrupts.com. View the numerous videos that point out the dangers of a permanent class of professional politicians who put their own political and professional self-interests above those of the people they “pretend” to serve.
Nelson’s plan has only a single flaw – I would add never elect a lawyer under any circumstances. They are taught to argue both sides of an issue, negotiating rather than taking a firm stance. They complicate even simple issues with linguistic tricks which feature intended loopholes to confer special rights on the special interests who support them. They are all about crazy-0making and chaos – as the prime element in which they survive.
I will leave you with an old saying: “One lawyer in town, they make an ok living; two lawyers in town make a great living and three or more lawyers in town means that the top two lawyers become fabulously wealthy while others handle the real work of daily living.” Can’t say that it is always true – but when you consider the impact of lawyers in our government – stand by for chaos and corruption.
Check out Nelson’s site and consider what he has to say.
