    Congressional term limits would at least change the guard on occasion. It would be a start. Most of the hyperpartisanship and corruption comes from entrenched politicians. With term limits, Reid, Pelosi, Boehner, and McConnell would be gone.

    This is from the link above:
    Perhaps you should read before you respond. Which part of "As a conservative, I say "Do not impeach Obama". Let him suffer out the remainder of his second term" did you not understand? As much as I think Obama is an ass, I don't think the republicans should be wasting time planning impeachment of Obama. And the truth is that they are not. The democrats are just invoking fears of impeachment proceedings as a desperate ploy to raise money and get their base to comer out and vote in the midterms. It's a little early for making hard predictions in regards to 2016, however at this point, I don't think it looks good for the democrats. They will still have the 1200 lb gorilla (obamacare) on their backs as they do now. And the employer mandate will be very much in the news then.

    But I wonder if impeachment shouldn't be a legal decision rather than by popular majority.
    Impeachment is a political decision to solve a political problem.

    It would be worth a try only because anything is better than what we have now. What is the old saying? Desperate times calls for desperate measures.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    Perhaps you should read before you respond. Just because I added "the votes just aren't there to convict Obama. So, if you want a backlash against Republicans, go ahead and impeach," doesn't mean that I thought that was your view -- although I can see how someone could have that impression. Perhaps I should have used the phrase "if one" instead of "you."

    I live in one of the red states that refused to set up an exchange. Unfortunately for your claims, every state and local politician running against obamacare is winning.

For district court judges, the figures were 98.5 days for Obama, nearly (but not quite) triple the 34.9 days for Bush’s first-term picks.

    It made a difference in regards to the executive office. No more four term presidents

    But Obama is working tirelessly to flip those numbers. I believe he will succeed.

    The nation's restoration to a republican form of government can be found in Article V. We need a convention of states to propose amendments to restore constitutionally limited government. Without it the loss of individual liberty will continue until the free nation dies.
