WE HAVE NO KINGS OR MONARCHS IN AMERICA WHERE EVERY MAN IS A KING

Congress has an 11% approval rating, but over 95% are re-elected.  Your congressman may be a part of the problem.  Think about it.

Even if you just love Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, since Congress has always been an institution based on seniority, she will be a long time waiting to get the chance to lead.  It's like a science.

Over 80% of Americans support term limits, and over 46% of them strongly support it, but what is the likelihood that big money lobbyists and the legislators they support are going to spoil that sweet arrangement?  Consequently, only 15 states in the nation have adopted term limits for their state legislatures, and there is no movement at all to impose term limits in Virginia, the only state where the governor can only serve for one term. Yet, it is a fact that in every state where term limits have been implemented, voter participation has increased.

If you want to get fresh ideas in congress, if you want to provide opportunities for opportunities for more persons to contribute to the leadership of your state, if you want to clean the swamp and increase voter participation, what are you waiting for? Let's make Virginia the 24th state to ratify term limits and get an amendment to the Constitution.  Term limits, now.  It's about time.  #Honest
