Voter Imposed Term Limits – opens doors for women this November

Another Reminder By BettyJean Kling

Can you hear me NOW? The revolution has begun- what we ( those of us who rallied for a third party ) said in the early 90’s is coming to fruition- the people are rising- all over this country- finally my plan does not sound so silly anymore does it? We may not get or need a third party but we sure as hell need to clean out the old guard. perhaps if we do that – all the new people we send in might- just might – understand THEY WORK FOR US !

 Now I don’t even want just any patriots – I want LADY patriots -we need to fill  at least 52% of the seast in Congress this November with women so you need to apply right now! We have 10 months till election day!

I’d like to think others have finally figured out what many of us have known for far longer than I have known.

The Patriot Plan: Voter imposed Term Limits
BettyJean Kling 1992

The political idea of representation is based on the idea that some person or institution acts on behalf of the people, by re-presenting their beliefs, attitudes and perspectives. The big advantage of representative government is that it allows the citizens to have some influence on their rulers.

Nowhere does it nor should it imply a representative stay in office long enough to get powerful enough to overpower other politicians who were elected to represent their people. The idea then of seniority defeats the very purpose of a representative government.

To avoid this problem and ensure every elected official fully represents the constituency, we need term limits. They are not going to limit their own terms so we have to do it for them. I urge you to join me and vote against all incumbents, this will ensure these politicians will serve their constituents with equal weight and standing.

The Patriot Plan’s intent is to keep throwing them out till it just doesn’t pay for them to stay in the business of politics. Instead of voting for a candidate who intends to self serve, I am voting against candidates in order to enforce voter imposed term limits. The goal is to get rid of the R’s and the D’s and replace them with non partisan patriots who are not aspiring to choose politics as a lifetime career goal.

Just think what this will do for breaking the duopoly! You think the two parties will fight so hard to keep these seats to themselves once we ensure the career politician with lifetime perks aspect of public service obsolete? Just as two terms prevents dictatorship in a president, term limits prevents corruption on every level.

Arguing Republicans vs. Democrats is fruitless; we should be arguing term limits. Career politicians have opposed term limits on the grounds they need seniority to get their constituents a better deal. Their constituents, like them intend to deprive other citizens of the same level of representation. Sadly, selfishness begets selfishness and the continued corruption based on greed.

Our elected politicians are paid scandalous salaries and perks and still go out of their way to skim, steal and find other ways to feather their nests. How much is enough? In reality these money hungry politicians are protecting a corrupt political system that no longer serves the citizens as a whole and throws crumbs to local constituents.

It will take some time but if we begin to crack down on this gimmick- we can turn this country around. The Patriot Plan is designed to argue for voter imposed term limits to drive the charlatans out and make room for patriots who propose to serve in the true spirit of service.

Any other action results in the status quo, The Patriot Plan is a viable solution and one that every voter can participate in. We must throw the bums out from the lowest office to the highest.

Unfortunately- corruption from the lowest office to the highest has continued unabated and all we do is bleat with the sheep? We belly ache but hold on to our own corrupt officials when there is something in it for us.

They have corrupted your vote with pork and if all else fails with fear and if you continue to fall for that – you not only condone it but are complicit.

Where have all the patriots gone? Many have scoffed at The Patriot Plan claiming it’s idealistic to believe folks will run if there is nothing in it for them. Not so, you only have to turn to our enlisted service people to find hundreds of thousands who serve our country at risk of life and limb for the sake of serving. Our national guard for example currently serves like full time soldiers without full time soldier benefits and they put their lives on the line for us! That is serving our country for the sake of serving selfishly.

The only message politicians understand is money and votes! The only power you have is your vote- Use it for change! Show them you really mean it — in your towns, your districts, your state and your country. Please do not neglect every opportunity to make changes that reach right up to the head of the problem regardless which party is in power. Neither party deserves our vote! Comparing and contrasting them just makes us game pieces for their game of Stratego!

Voter imposed term limits! Vote em out – Vote em all out!

  2. Now is the time to put into play the “Patriot Plan”.

    The good people of Massachusetts signaled the sign of times to come. There will be no more corruption or cronyism on their watch!

    Good people of America, we have the dems on the ropes and now until November, every single dem will be fighting for their political life! The republicans are also on notice. My recommendation to both parties is to never underestimate the power of the people!

    It will be up to the American people to stop the “career politicians” from occupying the “people’s seats”.

    When a politician stays in DC for much to long, they become complacent, lazy, complicit with lobbyist and special interest and “power hungry” at the people’s peril.

    The Majority United RIDs is looking for patriots, take a look at Katherine Jenerette for the United States Congress.

    “Katherine Jenerette is a U.S. Army veteran of the Persian Gulf War Operation Desert Storm and a graduate of the University of South Carolina, Coastal Carolina with a Masters Degree from USC, Columbia. She served as U.S. Congressional Field Representative for the First Congressional District, South Carolina. She is married and the mother of four children and an Officer in the U.S. Army Reserve.”

    She has a very impressive resume. Checkout her
    website: http://www.jenerette.com/2010_bio/index.html

    “Who she is and what she has done: “…an independent-thinking conservative who’s not afraid to buck the status quo, Jenerette sent shockwaves through the Palmetto political landscape.” Katherine Jenerette’s near win of a powerful Senate Seat in 2004 earned her a reputation in many political circles as “the good old boys’ worst enemy.” ~ FITS Political News

  4. Hi Betty Jean, check out my videos at tenurecorrupts.com, such as:

    The only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to get a truly new Congress is :
    NEVER REELECT ANY INCUMBENT! AND DO IT EVERY ELECTION!

    The American voter must IMPOSE term limits by NEVER REELECTING ANYONE IN CONGRESS, AND DO IT EVERY ELECTION! In other words, don’t let anyone serve more than one term. That’s the only way to teach them that the voter is boss! The “one term limit” can be eased AFTER citizens get control of Congress.

    Congress will never allow us to constitutionally term limit them by an amendment. Our only choice is to NEVER REELECT them. All of them!

    The number of ‘good guys’ left in Congress is negligible, so if we threw ALL 535 members out, we wouldn’t do as much damage as the good we would gain by turning Congress into a bunch of honest, innocent freshmen.

    Some of the reasons in favor of this approach:

    • It gives us a one-term-limited Congress without using an amendment
    • It encourages ordinary citizens to run for Congress
    • It is supported by 70% of the country (see Rasmussen and Cato polls)
    • It is completely nonpartisan
    • If repeated, it ends career politicians in Congress
    • It opens the way to a “citizen Congress” of guys like you and me
    * It would open a torrent of fresh ideas to improve our government
    • It ends the seniority system that keeps freshmen powerless
    • It doesn’t cost money. But you MUST vote! Just don’t vote for an incumbent
    • It takes effect immediately on Election Day
    • It is the only infallible, unstoppable, guaranteed way to “Throw the Bums Out”
    • When the ‘pros’ stop running, ordinary citizens will run, and win
    • If it doesn’t work, do it again and again! It will work eventually,without a doubt.

    NEVER REELECT ANYONE IN CONGRESS. AND DO IT EVERY ELECTION!
