Seamus Hughes started this petition to Congress

I would like to start a petition aiming to create term limits for members of congress. For too long the representatives in the house as well as senators have given up all of their morals and standards to keep themselves in positions of power and it is time to make a change in our political process. 

No longer do congressmen act in the interest of American citizens. Rather they look to appease party officials as well as higher bidding lobbyists who fund politicians insatiable need for war, welfare, and political division, among other problems. 
Since President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the 22nd amendment US presidents have had to operate under a two term electoral system, meaning they can only serve up to 8 years as president. However, congressmen and women have been able to reign largely unchecked for decades, some serving as long as 35-40 years. These men and women incumbent politicians have served long passed their prime many into their lates 70’s and early 80’s such ages that many would not trust a person to have a driver’s license much less play an integral part in our law making system.With this petition I propose that a two term limit be set on congressmen and women so that they have a check on their individual powers as citizens of this nation. 

Please do the right thing and sign this petition. Please realize that these individual congresspeople have grown too large of egos and have gained to much power while in office and let us create the kind of reform that will actually effect Change in our country. This will lead to great things and will act as a watchdog to corrupt politicians nationwide.
