Congressional Term Limits

Rich will sponsor a Joint Resolution to seek Ratification of a 28th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution when elected to Congress. Section 3 below amended for the 116th Congress in 2019 provides natural persons a Congress that can be replaced frequently so that the interests of the 99.999% of voters can be represented in the U.S. Congress.*  This new term limits Amendment "throws the bums out" after the end of their current terms in Congress, after the date when the Amendment is ratified by 75% of the States. * Lincoln

A Term Limits Amendment was introduced to Congress on January 03, 2017 in the 115th Congress that contained the Section 3 language shown below in red. That language was written by a sitting career incumbent Congressperson. Under that language every Congreserson would be entitled to another 3 terms (6 years) in the House or another 2 terms (12 years) in the Senate on the date when the amendment is ratified, no matter how long they would have already previously served in Congress, be it 10, 20, 30, 40 or even 50 years. Plus the ratification can take up to seven years. So Congresspersons could stay in office for up to 19 years after the Joint Resolution is passed in both houses.

Congress is distrusted by nearly 90% of the American people, who think that special interest money dictates everything done by Congress. We are totally digusted. Congress seems to do nothing to govern to solve our long term problems. We want to "throw out the trash," just what the candidate Donald Trump promised as "cleaning out the swamp" in his so far unfulfilled campaign promises. Share this page if you agree with the language in the proposed amendment. Term Limits Amendent

Proposed: Make room for new people in Congress. Fire career incumbents who have no new ideas to govern effectively. Get rid of the deadwood, people who apparently have no ability to work together to solve our many national problems. We can not move ahead using the same special interest solutions that have not worked in the past. Congress today appears to merely follow the orders of Wall Street and the bilionaire class who buy public policy in order to stay on the same failed paths expecting different results. New directions require new thinking and new people.

The 99.999% can have a strong political voice. Occupy politics.

(Section 3) (Section 3) (Top of Page)

History: Will detail the history of the bill in 2017. Number of sponsors and how far did it get. How many sponsors? Have to research it. will present the 2019 bill to sitting members of Congress who sponsored the 2017 bill in the 115th Congress. Report results here.

Background in Wikipedia Term Limits. Also Term Limits in the United States, which is more pertinent to my interests.

Section 3,

I will introduce a Joint Resolution to seek Ratification of the proposed Congressional Term Limits amendment with the amended Section 3 language below in the new Congress on January 03, 2019:

Elect nonpartisan independent candidates on your ballot. We all win if you apply term limits in the voting booth to all Incumbent public office holders. Career politicians do harm to our dreams of freedom and a democratic republic. As the years pass, incumbent politicians serve only their political party and other special interests that support their personal political ambitions.

Section 3 (Section 3) Pledge

 

 

 

 

* Section 3 is fulfillment of the language of Abraham Lincoln in the Gettysburg Address that finally gives voters a "government of the people, by the people, for the people." That amended Section 3 language in the Term Limits Amendment will most of all finally give 99.999% of our people government "by" and "for" a consensus of our citizens. The 14th Amendment will finally be fulfilled. Equality under the law will finally become the common law practiced under the Constitution of the United States for all citizens. Abe Lincoln can finally rest in peace knowing that his work for the common good is done.

Gettysburg Address Text:

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
Thursday, November 19, 1863.

Note: The above text is the Bliss version, the only surviving version of the speech signed by Abraham Lincoln. This is the official version accepted by most authorities on Lincoln. Lincoln's words demand that we complete his work to establish that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth. Up to you and me. rls
