I will always support and adore Senator Ted Cruz. He is one of the greatest politicians of our time and in that mode is calling for a constitutional amendment to sets term limits to drain the swamp. Something President Trump has wanted from the very beginning.
This would stop those such as Nancy Pelosi who has spent her entire adult life in Congress. She originally came from Baltimore from a family that bore a striking resemblance to other crime families who have run major cities in the past. This amendment would stop swamp dwellers such as Pelosi cold and it is long, long overdue.

I found it downright laughable that she would call building a wall immoral. Pelosi is the poster-child for immorality and all its attached vices. She must hate that Ted Cruz is putting this forth with Rep. Francis Rooney (R-FL).
From Ted Cruz and the Patriot Journal:
U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Francis Rooney (R-Fla.) today introduced an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to impose term limits on members of Congress.
The amendment would limit U.S. senators to two six-year terms and members of the U.S. House of Representatives to three two-year terms…
“Term limits on members of Congress offer a solution to the brokenness we see in Washington, D.C. It is long past time for Congress to hold itself accountable. I urge my colleagues to submit this constitutional amendment to the states for speedy ratification.”
Our Founding Fathers never meant for politicians to stay in power forever. They wanted that kind of power contained and controlled and this will start doing that. It will limit the power of our leaders as it should. In fact, our founders never meant for politicians to even be paid. It was supposed to be a voluntary thing and very, very short-lived. Over the decades we now see why that was the case.
This is why we imposed term limits on the White House after Democrat progressive FDR held the office for a stunning 4 terms. It’s far too easy to go the dictator route, especially for leftists.
All this fighting over kickbacks, power, etc. would come to an end if you only got two or three terms. There’s even an argument that our politicians no longer necessarily have to be in DC anymore. With technology such as Skype etc. costs, travel, etc. can be cut. Sounds like the way to go to me. Here’s to Cruz and Rooney helping Trump drain the swamp!
