Congressional Term Limits!

Congress was meant to be a citizen legislature. Our representatives were supposed to go to Washington, serve for a short time, then return to live under the laws they made.

This vision has been lost. Congress is now a haven for career politicians who put their own power, perks and privileges ahead of public service. Even worse, they are impossible to unseat thanks to cozy connections with lobbyists and special interests.

This broken system needs repair. United for Missouri and U.S. Term Limits is fighting to call a convention under Article V of the Constitution to propose an amendment for Term Limits on the U.S. House and Senate. If we do not act now, we may never be able to bring back government of, by and for the people.

Congress has a 13 percent approval rating, but a 95% re-election rate! That’s because our elected leaders can abuse their power to keep away electoral challenges, which transfers power away from citizens and into the hands of unaccountable career politicians.Won’t you help us break this cycle, by signing the online petition below?

 

Term Limits NOW petition for U.S Congress:

 

     Whereas, Congress ratings are at a historic low point; and

     Whereas, the American people no longer trust career politicians who run for reelection over and over again; and

     Whereas, members of Congress seem to care more about pandering to campaign contributors and special interest groups than representing their constituents; and

     Whereas, election rules and government power have been perverted so that it has become almost impossible for the people to vote their elected representatives out of office; and

     Whereas, 75% of the American people and 86% of Missourians support term limits; and

     Whereas, Congress will not vote for an amendment to term limit itself; and

     Whereas, Article V of the Constitution allows for states to bypass Congress to propose the amendment through Convention; and

Now Therefore Be It Resolved, that I do hereby support a Term Limits Convention to enact a constitutional amendment for term limits on members of the U.S. Senate and on members of The House of Representatives.
