    Contracts don’t have to reflect reality.

    People say that no matter whether a republican or democrat is in the White House. The only difference is who’s saying it. There’s only so much the president can do. In our current, sharply polarized political climate, every president is blocked by the opposite party no matter what they try to put through. But it’s always the president who takes the majority of the blame, while the clowns in congress continue to get themselves re-elected.

    They’ll be the same thing, just working for their own interests. All promises sound good when they’re promises to replace the current order. But when one fox says he should be in the henhouse instead of the fox who’s in there now, who will you believe?

    Term limits is the answer. Only they have to be approved by those who are already in office and what are the chances of that?!

    Remember the stunt Mike Bloomberg pulled. The people voted for term limits; they made they will known. But Richpants decided “Doe$n’t apply to Me!” and didn’t even bother to put it to a new vote. Just used his money and bullying personality to get what he wanted. Never entered his mind that he was setting a bad precedent and fomenting more cynicism. Money talks, but it doesn’t listen very well.

    That is the true problem with our political system. If we could take money out of the equation maybe our government would work for the good of the country and all it’s people. I know I’m a dreamer………but I’m not the only one. :-)

    More than term limits, campaign finance reform is needed. Anyone who makes it to high office is inevitably heavily beholden to the large donations that funded their campaign to get there. Britain, for example, puts strict and low limits on personal and business political contributions, and parties then also get a per-vote stipend out of general revenue. This means that if you want to get more funding, you better find lots of contributors, and get lots of votes.

    This would also reverse what is now a 40 year-old strategy of voter suppression in America – negative campaigning that rarely wins votes, but is in fact aimed at keeping your opponent’s supporters at home. It works, but drives down voter turnout all around. Under the British campaign finance rules, that’s cutting off your own nose to spite your face.

    Strict and low limits on contributions mean the extremely wealthy don’t get disproportionate influence over candidates – and heads off the ridiculous circumstance that now exists in America, that corporations now are “persons”, with rights of citizens. Patently absurd, as a corporation is an organization of individuals, and those individuals already have votes and freedom of expression. America has put its political process on sale to the highest bidder, possibly anonymous, possibly a foreign individual or even foreign government.
