in general, which party would do better if:

- there were term limits
- the country had to run under a balanced budget amendment...spend equal to or less than it takes in
- no riders on bills - bills must stand on their own merit



Sounds like the tea party.

I agree...however I am convinced that unless these 3 things happen, our country is on a collision course with failure. The rules of the game are broken, not unlike the banking rules enacted by the feds in the 1990's that caused the near collapse of our financial industry.


So, do you honestly believe Congress would ever vote to amend The Constitution, in order to put themselves out of a job ? And, if they did, do you believe the legislatures of thirty-seven states would vote to accept same ? Term limits probably could be imposed by law, but, I seriously doubt it.    Cool

It's not obvious that the people would win. Term limits gets rid of politicians that continually win elections. This means that to the extent that people are competent at voting, it gets rid of elected officials that serve the interests of the voters. In the last term, politicians don't have any incentives to get re-elected. This means that they don't have strong incentives to do things that voters like. There is also a question of where the power goes when people have a limited time in office. Perhaps it goes to inexperienced politicians or to an unelected political establishment?
