A new Idea for the Washington politicians

A new Idea for the Washington politicians

Postby mmckee1952 » Mon, 24 Jul 2017 23:36:44

I'm thinking this is the best original idea I had in a while, knowing I've overlooked an obvious flaw.
.
Instead of term limits, when a senators family's net worth reaches 1.5 million, he gives up his seat, never to have it again. If he's worth more than that now, he can't run. No pension, no perks. State holds another election in 90 days.
.
Representative’s limit is 1 million. Same deal. The district holds another election
.
Don't like the other election let each state house or governor appoint someone of the same party to replace.
.
Let all these smart guys make their millions on the outside.
“Those who surrender freedom for security will not have, nor do they deserve, either one.”
― Benjamin Franklin

I like that.
THE HIGH PRICE OF FREEDOM IS A COST PAID BY A BRAVE FEW. In memory of our fallen heroes.

THOSE WHO SERVE DESERVE HONOR, RESPECT, THANKS.

What makes you think it would be a better system to restrict legislation to people who can't figure out how to make money?

Gun-crazy? Me? I'd say the gun-crazy ones are the ones that don’t HAVE one.

I don't think it's a good idea to put that online. WHO KNOWS who's checking? I love big-caliber and longe-range rifles and 1911 pistols, and I've got a few.

I can always use another 1911.
