Samantha LaFollette-McGuire started this petition to Politicians

Congress, politicians and any elected official should have term limits. A Member of Congress who can’t be defeated is not accountable. I feel the longer a person holds a seat the more out of touch with reality they become. If our Congress’ house is not accountable and not in touch with the lives of Americans they represent then how can they represent us? Some of those in elected seats seem to believe they are to powerful and untouchable. Term Limits decrease the influence of lobbyists and special interests who have too much power in our present system. This will also reduce the chance of Foreign countries persuading our government for their own gains.
     Term Limits reduce corruption and open our government to new people with new ideas to solve our country's problems. I also believe anyone who holds these positions should face the same “employment” terms as Americans. Therefore they can not continue to be paid, have their healthcare paid for or any other benefits after they are out of their positions. There is to many of our “elected” officials growing richer by the day while average Americans are being taxed to death with no end in sight. I believe this will pave the way for bringing the power back to the people. No one should become rich holding an elected position.
