Added to Blogroll!

I don’t know enough about politics in America, so I say very little about it, much preferring to leave it to people who are better informed. As luck would have it, I received an email the other day to say that someone had “Liked” my post “Recall: Put Power In Voters Hands”. Naturally enough, I went to their site to see what they were doing.

I liked what I saw!

These guys are getting organised to campaign against career politicians, by limiting terms in office to 12 years, which equates to two election periods.

This is very much the way I think also, as the UK system is riddled with career politicians, and even worse, many of them had the empathy knocked out of them at boarding school.

This type of person is not a good choice as a representative of the people. The problem is that it is not the people that are doing the choosing, but political parties, who are only interested in staying in power as long as possible.

As far as I am concerned, anything that helps to move us back towards a decent grass-roots Democracy that actually serves the interests of the people must be actively supported.

So here is the link to their site:- Term Limits For Congress

Take a look for yourself, and see if there is anything that you can do!
