The most powerful corporations and special interest groups always hedge their bets by buying BOTH sides of the aisle. That way they always win regardless of which party holds the majority! So many people believe that if "their" party was in control, everything would be better. WRONG!

Group calls for term limits for U.S. Congress
Voters depend on their elected officials to represent the will of the people, but a group of concerned citizens believe legislators should not make politics a life-long career. They want to amend the U.S. Constitution to limit the number of years that elected officials can serve in the U.S. Senate or House to 12 years.
Aja Elyse Schmidt of Lexington is the Davidson County representative for a national group called Term Limits for U.S. Congress that has begun an online petition calling to impose expiration dates for certain elected officials through Article 5 of the United States Constitution.
"People of all generations are tired of Congress not doing anything and not representing the people," Schmidt said. "This is a national movement to allow the states to convene a convention to make a constitutional change. It is supposed to be a government for the people and by the people, and every voice counts."
James Davies, one of two state representatives for the North Carolina division of the national group, said this is an attempt to start a conversation and make citizens aware they have the power to demand change.
