The Founding Fathers never intended public service to be a career, they envisioned citizens bringing their skills to public office, do their time, and then go back to their communities. Government is now viewed as "the Swamp" because of the entrenched career politicians that benefit from their office. I wish this organization would work towards a US Constitutional amendment to limit Congress and the Senate. We might actually see good people want to run, and imagine a Congress that didn't have to spend all their time raising money being elected every two years.

This group of slime balls can't even bring into law what the voters have passed into law. Instead they vote themselves a raise. Any current pol should be voted OUT. What do we have to lose?

Warwick Sabin sponsored amendment 94 under the guise of ethics reform. The people of Arkansas voted for the ballot title of reform without knowing it was a Trojan horse and extended term limits. This is why our Attny General is so careful about ballot titles now so Sabin’s type of misleading ballots won’t happen again.

Sabin sponsored that amendment? That amendment was terrible. Hmm...might have to rethink whether he's the best choice for LR mayor.

We the people have the power of term limits in our hands. All we have to do is vote and the candidate’s term will end.
