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.

In the beginning the discussion very much did come up. I refer you to Article I Section 6 of the Constitution. As well did the topic of limiting congresses ability to give itself a raise, which it never could since it must go through the same process as any spending bill. What was eventually enacted (see the 27th amendment) was the restriction of any congress to vote in a raise for that congress. Essentially, the next congress would be the benefactors. It was proposed in the first congress in 1789 and took over 200 years to make it in the amendments.

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.

There is nothing "easy" about amending the Constitution. Rightfully so.

MSG Stan Hutchison - The answer is easy. The doing takes commitment, you are correct. So we can play word games here all day Top. And you are an analyst, so you can probably pick apart everything I say. But in the end it comes down to either we institute term limits or see the current obstruction for obstructionisms sake scenario play over and over again. And term limits for congress WILL require an amendment to the constitution. Easy answer. But you are correct, rightfully hard to do.

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?
