xI have written many times on my distain for politicians but apparently no one listens. So today let’s talk about how long we should let these idiots stay in office. First let’s look at presidents most in the free world are limited to how long they can remain in office. In the US its 8 years max and you can never run again for president. So what happens is the first term they spend laying out what they’re going to do and trying to get senators and others of their party elected. The end of the first term they spend trying to get reelected and the second term no one listens to them so they travel around making speeches. It’s pretty much the same in congress and the senate and other countries as well. The simple solution to this term limits, everybody agrees but doesn’t want to do anything about it. That seems to be to story all around the world the only way they change is by revolution and then democracy goes out the window. I don’t think, especially since both Jeff and I are older, that just because your old that you can’t hold a position of responsibility. But it does seem that the old politicians spend more time on golf courses and traveling on some corporation’s dime. There’s an old expression that power bring corruption and that is very true in the case of politicians. If you’re looking for honest y in politics I doubt you’ll find it people like Jeff who spent some time in politics, but couldn’t deal with the back room back stabbing life, leave politics and never go back. If you wish to make changes you must start at the bottom and work your way up and then avoid the money and power that will be offered you. You see the problem with staying in office or getting to be president is you build up a debt of favors and sooner or later you must pay that debt back. Hey this is Flounder saying CIAO from Medellin Colombia.
