Sign of The Times

The one thing both Democrats and Republicans can agree on is " term limits" or to put it more bluntly,  throw the bums out after an agreed upon number of terms of elected office. Elected office should not be a lifetime sinicure.

We have presidential elections every four years, but members of Congress can serve until they drop dead  Some  are still working on Capitol Hill when they should be drooling into their oatmeal in an old folks home. ( Strom Thurmond leaps to mind)    It is definitely time for a change.

Come to think about it, I think they feel the same way about this in the MIddle East and Russia. It sure looks that way from where I sit. Power belongs to the people, not to the politicians.

Maybe, it's time for a world-wide change.
