I’m with you on Palin. Too bad that she’s not the nominee this year. We really need a strong person to clean house and get things in order again.
I agree with Jim that we need to do what we have to this time, try to help every tea party candidate we know get elected, and then we need to continue to let the elites know their days are numbered.
Question: Is there a way that we, the people, can get a referendum on the ballots to have term limits? It is obvious that the Congress will not vote that in themselves. What recourse do we have? We are NOT being served by these ruling class politicians. They believe that they have a right to stay as long as they please. We have to have a voice in this.
I would have loved Palin but the reality is the press would have torn her apart again. At least this go around. Everyone here would have been happy voting for her but she would have lost the general. I have no doubt she would be the nominee but the press would have been merciless. Hopefully she can build up her bona fides over the next 3 years
If Palin does become POTUS in 2016 she will need a strong and capable VP, as she has shown that she cracks under pressure.
“U.S. Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton (1995): a case in which the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that states cannot impose qualifications for prospective members of the U.S. Congress stricter than those specified in the Constitution. The decision invalidated the Congressional term limit provisions of 23 states...”
Also, during the 1994 Republican Revolution, a lot of the Republicans elected to the House had signed a pledge to serve only 3-terms (6-years). When 2000 came, many broke their pledge.
