As I understand it, the Founders didn’t envision government being a lifetime career, but a temporary service and back home. A few self limit themselves, but a career move for most. We are responsible for what they do.

Sorry, Roger. The Founding Fathers mention term limits nary once. One might presume that they felt that elections, themselves, solved that issue. That might be true save it be for the modern American voter, alias the blind, deaf, and card—carrying STUPID American voter, who keeps voting for the plate of food shoved in front of them. Enter Pelosi, Waters, Schumer, et al.

He is accomplished in so many ways. He is considered one of the finest revolutionaries in world history. He was also a surveyor and it gave him the opportunity to learn the land and probably the people as well.

SPC Nancy Greene - Ok off the top of my head Washington was instrumental in raising an army and using the militia. Many of them needed to go back to their farms to harvest. He worried about feeding, clothing, supplying, and paying them. He fought battles but also had to think about the strategic perspective of fighting a war. He worked with the French who supplied and fought with Washington's forces to include flexing naval power. He also worked with the Continental Congress. Is this suitable to you Ms Nancy?

I could not but help noticing this article only mentions Democrats. I believe we have a number of Republicans that have been "in power" for a considerable amount of time also.

SFC Patrick M. - I understand how Article 5 works. However, it’s been my experience that many folks who call for a Convention of the States don’t.
That’s why I asked for clarification, which oddly enough, wasn’t provided by the original person when asked.
