    Churchill said it best: "It has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried."

    I think that it would be in line with Jefferson's (I think it he) comment that we'd need a revolution every twenty years, to say that ALL incumbents should be swept out, all fresh blood knowing that as soon as they become the stale blood, they'll get what the last bunch got. But what unifying voice would lead the charge against the partisans, on both sides, who exist in overwhelming numbers, that would stand in the way of it?

    I'd agree with sweeping out all the old blood and whole sale replacing it with fresh blood, but term limits have been tried a number of times and haven't succeeded, probably for the same reason that Dittohead not! observed earlier with the infrastructure maintenance budget.

    Disinformation campaign? The Russian collusion meme pushed by the 'news' media, behaving as a political propaganda organ, hell bent to destroy a legitimately elected president to implement his agenda per the votes of the same electorate. Reference The Big Lie Reference Goebbels

    He was a failure as Gov of Massachusetts, probably couldn't run a taco stand in Tijuana, and he wanted to be President
    Oh looky who liked your post. Nuff said.

    Lol, I hear ya. I wasn't really referring to term limits though. I was talking about sweeping out all incumbents during elections, and informing the new blood that as soon as they begin acting like the old bunch, which is the general direction of things, they'll be swept out just as the old bunch was in the next election.
