    Since House terms are for only two years, and Senate terms much longer, I think the # of terms for House members should be balanced with the length of those terms. 2 for Senate; max 10 years for House.

    If SCOTUS terms were only 10 years, they would vary almost in conjunction with whoever is POTUS. I think 15 might work better ... but "life" is certainly does not seem appropriate. I do wonder that when the Constitution was written that the anticipated lifespan was shorter than today, and it was not anticipated that a SCOTUS would be serving as long as they can today.

    So, the short answer is that i think we need less Government intervention in our lives.
    Thanks for the answer. Reducing the size of gov. agencies and programs is a step in the right direction, as opposed to reducing the GROWTH RATE of agencies and programs. I even go farther. My yardstick is that if an agency has not met it's mission, then eliminate that agency and program. Start over recognizing it's failure and try another tact. The important factor is what works.

    In my opinion, the most destructive event in the history of this country was the implemantation of the income tax. Who in the world can argue that it is not fatallly flawed? 70,000 pages of deductions shold be enough proff that it can never work. Had we not had the income tax, I doubt that many of these failed agencies and programs would have ever existed. Boy, that is change I could live with. Maybe that makes me a radical liberal.

    I go even further than term limits. Make the pay so small that a member of the congress has only a part time job and has to return home and have a real job to live. If they can't get their business done in 90 days then they should quit. Republicans had term limits in their contract with America and failed to honor it. Big mistake and had they done so, I do believe that the American people would have known they were serious instead of pandering. Dennis Hastert et al spent money like drnken sailers and now the democrats make them look like beginners. Republicans were on the same path as the democrats but wanted a slower rate. Hopefully, they have learned their lesson before it is too late. I have no illusions as to the difficulty of weaning us off dependence and control by the gov. but I truly hope it will be done.

    It's such a shame that in the USA, defending Liberty has become such a heroic deed.

    I will repeat that THE biggest issue facing America with this election is the appointing of 2-4 new Supreme Court justices in the next 4-8 years. That is more important than a figure head that is called a Commander-in-Chief that can veto what congress pimps.
    A lot of people are afraid of heights. Not me, I'm afraid of widths.
