Here are all the Republicans ditching Congress ahead of the 2018 elections
https://www.dailydot.com/layer8/republicans-not-running-reelection-2018/
SENATE:
Sen. Bob Corker (R-Tenn.): Corker said he would not seek a third term in 2018 and has been feuding with Trump on a number of issues. Trump has said Corker “begged” him to endorse the Tennessee lawmaker, and he more recently said the senator couldn’t be elected “dog catcher” in Tennessee, despite him winning an election to actually get into Congress.
Sen. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.): Flake, another frequent target of Trump, made a speech on the Senate floor in late October where he announced he would not be running again in 2018 and lambasted the political climate that Trump has encouraged.

HOUSE:
Rep. Charlie Dent (R-Pa.): Dent said in September that he would not seek an eighth term in Congress. He told Fox News that the decision was for personal reasons and that the “polarization around here is pretty severe.”
Rep. John Duncan (R-Tenn.): Duncan said in July that he will not seek reelection. He is the longest-serving Tennessean in Congress.
Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.): Goodlatte, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, announced his intention not to run just two days after the sweeping wins by Democrats in his home state.
Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-Texas): Harding, the chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, said the “time seems right for my departure” when he announced he would leave Congress in late October.
Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.): Jenkins announced in January that she would not seek a sixth term in office and plans to explore opportunities in the private sector.
Rep. Sam Johnson (R-Texas): Johnson, 86, is the oldest Republican in Congress. He said he would not seek a 14th term in January.
Rep. Frank LoBiondo (R-N.J.): LoBiondo, a 12-term congressman, said the nation was “consumed by increasing political polarization” in his announcement. Some have speculated his seat in New Jersey—which just elected a Democratic governor—could flip to a Democrat in 2018.
Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.): Murphy received backlash after it was revealed he asked his mistress to have an abortion despite his staunch anti-abortion stances. Several days later, he said he would resign from Congress at the end of his term.
Rep. Ted Poe (R-Texas): The Texas congressman announced in November he would not seek reelection. He said he hopes to spend more time with his 12 grandchildren. He served seven terms in Congress.
Rep. Dave Reichert (R-Wash.): The seven-term Republican announced in September he would not seek reelection, adding that it was not an easy decision—but the “right one for my family and me.”
Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.): Lehtinen has represented Miami since 1989. She said she disagreed with Trump on “many, if not most” of his positions, but he was not “part of the calculation of retiring.”
Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas): The chairman of the House Science, Space and Technology Committee said in early November he would not run again for his seat in the 21st district of Texas “for several reasons,” but he did not elaborate.
Rep. Pat Tiberi (R-Ohio): In mid-October, Tiberi said he would not seek reelection and instead will lead the Ohio Business Roundtable, an organization comprised of the state’s CEOs that works on research and policy areas.
Rep. Dave Trott (R-Mish.): Trott’s retirement from Congress could put his district in play for Democrats, according to the Detroit Free Press.

I agree. If I could change one thing about our political system, I would institute term limits.

They can't quit. They'd starve to death in the private sector.

How's my list for diversity? A woman, a white Jew, a Hispanic, a black Muslim, ...a veritable list showing diversity! They could join the afore-mentioned list of republicans leaving, and that would make America even greater again!

My post almost sounds like the start of a classic story...I.e....a priest, a rabbi, and a minister go to a bar...but there is no joke or punchline here. The gang of congressionals I mentioned would do America a great service if they just faded into the sunset.

I wonder how many of them are frustrated with the growing populism in their party. Chances are they will be replaced with people who are worse, and some of these people will get elected.
