Election Day 2010

.

Term limits for politicians begin at the polls. Vote them out.

Sounds like you're asking us to vote against term limits.

Term limits work both ways. I've seen cases in which excellent people have been forced to leave office because of them. This election illustrates that, although incumbents do have an advantage, that advantage isn't enough to get them re-elected if the electorate has a reason to vote for someone else.

Greetings from Texas,
Voted early so no need to go out and stand in line today. Standing by to watch the returns tonight. Wish I thought it was in the bag, but I never assume. Too many dissapointments in the past.

Not at all. Short of term limits, elections are all we have. I think two terms would be enough for any politician.

1) Apathy is real; voter corruption is real. The Illinois Mike Madigan (and now daughter Lisa) dynasty would not exist with term limits.

2) If good people leave because of term limits, I am certain that equally talented people will be available to follow.

3) People are upset with the government pensions; term limits would limit the pensions politicians receiver (short of the lawmakers voting to change their pension tables).

Barney Frank would be a small historical footnote if we had term limits. I don't get to vote for or against Barney Frank; term limits would be a great equalizer.
