We are hearing these clamors, cries, for a constitutional amendment to place term limits on members of the House and the Senate. In fact, our founders placed limitations on how long a member of the House could serve and how long a member of the Senate could serve. They said the limit for a House member was two years and the limit for a member of the Senate was six years. After those respective times, the individual would have to be approved by the voters again. The voters have the right to end the individual’s tenure at that time. The voters continue to re-elect these members time after time. If that is what the voters want, their rights should not be arbitrarily refuted by some arbitrary number.
Furthermore, and perhaps more importantly, with what would these members be replaced. The voters of California thought the idea of term limits was a great idea and today the California legislature is dominated by Marxist/Progressives who truly have as their goal to make California another Venezuela. Prosperous companies and individuals have clogged the exits leaving this future Venezuela while free loaders have clogged the entrances to this Marxist haven while the term limited legislature proposes more and more ridiculous taxes including taxes on water. Term limits in California have been a total waste.
We had a Marxist/Progressive takeover in the House of Representatives in 2018. Members were elected for the first time. Let us look at some of those new members.
Ilhan Omar from Minnesota and Rashida Tlaib from Michigan are both new members who openly advocate for American support for those who have vowed Death to America and for the destruction of our ally Israel.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez from New York has called for a complete overthrow of our free enterprise system and the implementation of a centrally controlled economic system.
Lauren Underwood of Illinois accused the Trump administration of intentionally killing immigrant children at the border.
All of the above advocate for the murder of unborn children and even murder of the child after birth and all of the above believe the borders of the United States should be open to all including terrorists who wish to destroy the United States. These are first term people.
No, a term limit amendment is not the answer. We must then ask if there is an answer and what the answer might be. The term limit amendment is only a feel-good action that refuses to address the real problem, which is the American voter.
Over the last many decades the movement that elected Omar, Tlaib, AOC, and Underwood has been groomed by the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) to vote for those who despise the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights; for those who in fact believe the Untied States should be a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat – all virtually the same) nation and not an individualist nation as our founders intended.
Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and all the other collectivists including those in the United States, understood that the key to implementing collectivism is through the indoctrination of the youth of a nation. Public education was essential and then the public education system had to become a public indoctrination system. The collectivist movement within the United States has accomplished this goal as did their fellow comrades in different nations.
This indoctrination system must be ended immediately. The immediate steps would be to eliminate the Federal Department of Education immediately, to eliminate any federal control over the public school system or any schools system, to outlaw any and all public sector employee unions, and for all who believe in freedom and independence to become involved in local control of our schools and once again place education under the control of those closest to the school, the local community.
Marx, Lenin, Stalin, Hitler, and all other collectivists also understood that the key to implementing collectivism is through intimidation or what is today referred to as “bullying.” The Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) have implement this intimidation or “bullying” through the method of “political correctness.” If you do not agree with the beliefs of the collectivists, the Marxist/Progressives (Democrats) call you an ism or an ist with the intent of shaming you so you will become submissive to their demands.
The attitude of those who believe in individualism must be emboldened. First, Freedom Lovers must understand what is the collectivist mentality and what are their goals. We must then converse, not argue or debate, with all. Our best method of conversing, if our goal is to persuade, is by asking penetrating questions. This is why you must understand the collectivist mentality and my friends true understanding is not reciting bumper stickers or 30 second sound bites. We must take on the attitude of our founders who were told by the father of the revolution, Sam Adams, "It does not take a majority to prevail... but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”
This my friends is how we will make America once again “the home of the brave and the land of the free,” not by restricting the choices of the voters by placing artificial limits on the number of terms an individual can serve, but by reestablishing in the minds of our fellow citizens why our founders truly understood what they were doing.
