We are smart, inventive, and have a vision for what we want our country to be in the future. We should expect that the people we send to Washington are the same, and will stay that way.
The spark of vision that first brings our representatives to office can be extinguished easily over time. The longer they remain in office, the more likely they are to conform to the stagnant, uninventive climate of Washington.
Limiting the amount of terms a politician can remain in office will mean a constant influx of new leaders from the civilian world with new and fresh ideas, passions, and philosophies. With term limits, Congress would be made up of leaders who are not burnt out or complacent, but leaders who are eager and passionate.
