Term limits. There should be no more than 5 two-year terms for congressmen. This equates to 5×2=10 years. The terms for senators should be no more than a 3 year term each time elected to senate. A senator can only be elected to senate 3 times. This equates to 3×3=9, president can only be elected for 2 four year terms. 2×4=8 years 2 term limits.
Term limits: as Congressman; that runs for Senate then president!
If a politician completes all their terms as congressman, then runs for the senate. They can do no more than 2 terms as senator, because they were previously a congressman. If this same person runs for president, they can only do one term as president. When you add up all these terms together, for congress, the senate and the presidency your service in the federal government is finished. This is term limits on how long they can be in Washington. They can do no more than 20 years total, as any type of representative in Washington DC. Congressman 10 years + senator 6 years + President 4 years = 20
Term limits on: Congressman that runs for President:
Congressman that runs for president, after completing five 2 year terms (5 x 2 = 10) can only run for president and be elected for 2 four year terms (2 x 4= 8), once this happens his or her time in Washington is complete He or she has maxed out their time in terms. both term for congress and president will equal 18 (8 + 10 = 18) years. which is ok, no congressman, senator or president, should be allowed to retire on the tax payers, this is an added undue burden on the country and tax payer, a unnecessary expense.
Term limits on: Senator that runs for President:
Senator that runs for president, after completing five 3 year terms (3 x 3 = 9) can only run for president and be elected for 2 four year terms (2 x 4= 8), once this happens his or her time in Washington is complete He or she has maxed out their time in terms. both terms for senate and president will equal 17 (8 + 9 = 17) years. which is ok, no senator, congressman or president, should be allowed to retire on the tax payers, this is an added undue burden on the country and tax payer, a unnecessary expense.
Term limits on: Time Congressman, & Senators stay in Washington.
Also no congressman or senator can stay in Washington year around. They must stay in their state a minimum of 6 months or 1/2 a year. Which gives them 1/2 year or 6 months in Washington or less, and less is better, this type of 1/2 year term will help eliminate a lot of the lobbying of congressman and senators, by special interest and corporations.
This will make criminal backroom deals harder. By not being in Washington all year around. Six months is more than enough time to complete any task. This will make it harder for the criminal elite to operate. The less time they spend in Washington, the better. This will also make it easier for the people, of the state, to keep up with the politician they put in office.
This will work for the states also, with the governor, senators and congressmen.
This is also a good way for states to do, on term limits and to stop monopolizing parties or people from getting control of this country. This is to put the government, local, state and federal Governments back into the hands of WE THE PEOPLE, Where It Belongs.
