It appears to me that the many problems we have with our government could be solved with two simple revisions to our Constitution. First, an amendment reading: “A person may not serve more than 12 years in Congress either as a senator or a representative.” And the subsequent amendment should read: “No person shall contribute or loan more than $2,500 to an individual running for Congress or to a group supporting the individual running for Congress. A non-breathing entity shall be prohibited from providing financial or any other form of assistance to a candidate.”
What will these amendments accomplish? First, permit the office-holders to concentrate on their jobs and not on building their re-election war chest. Secondly, stop corporations, businesses, special interest groups from buying our government, thereby restraining their influence in the decision process.
Too bad no politician would have the strength of heart to champion this cause.
