Scenario:
"It is 2014 A.D., the Revolutionary Communists, along with the Anarchists, have suceeded in tearing the United States apart, and destroying almost all of her political institutions. Mobs run free all over the streets, mingling the blood of Innocents with the dirt on the streets.

In the midst of this chaos, a few states have regained order and stability in their jurisdictions, and have determined to unite with one another to stop the tide of Anarchy and Revolution.

They have called for a Constitutional Convention to draw up a plan for a new government that will protect the Citizens of the States from all enemies both foreign and domestic, and establish Liberty to themselves and their Posterity."

To me, that is not a very far-fetched scenario, and I fear that it is what will truly happen in the Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave. People will be craving for Political Leaders, and I wish to prepare myself to be one of those leaders.

I am serious, the American Populace is teetering on the edge of complete Immorality, and if they fall, the rocks of Tyranny are at the bottom of the cliff, just waiting for another victim. Maybe America has fallen already. I do not know. However, we must be prepared to be Shepherds, and not Sheep. We must lead the few that survive the fall to Liberty." - By Christopher from CP Thread

Re: New Constitutional Convention

Samuel O wrote:
“Mr. President,
I would be opposed to three years as I think that would be setting off the balance power for whatever terms we set for the Senate and the executive branch. Mathmatically how would that workout? You can't if we re-use the old system we'd have Senators serve nine years which is to long and keeps them unaccountable and and same with the executive, six years is too long. We could adjust it in other ways I guess but it seems that it wouldn't ever fall to much into alignment mathmatically.

I would also like move that we put term limits of at least 12 years on Representative so as to curb the powers of career congressman.”
Mr. President, term limits were discussed and suggested in the Federal Convention in which our Fathers brought forth the Constitution. It was discarded for so many reasons, and I have but little time to relate them (it is past 10:00 my time).

The first, and most obvious to them, was that term limits prevent perfect representation in Congress. If term limits are in place, then the People will be prevented from electing those whom they most trust and admire, forcing them to vote for someone who is less loved. Thus, it is an infringement upon the power of the People.

Secondly, it is only necessary if we do not trust the People to choose good leaders. If they can choose good leaders, and will not be swayed by demagogues to vote in those politicians time and again, then term limits are not necessary. So, I ask, what does the Honourable Representative from Wisconsin mean by bringing up this proposition? Does he trust the People to choose good representatives for themselves? Does he believe that they are responsible enough? Does he believe that the people can govern themselves, and thus can choose their own representatives without our barging in and preventing them from choosing those the people most trust?

Remember, "But if no one among us is capable of governing himself, then who among us has the capacity to govern someone else? All of us together, in and out of government, must bear the burden."

So, either we trust the People to choose their leaders wisely, or we do not. So, what will we choose? What do we believe?

Mr. President, I am completely against term limits, and would be saddened to see this Convention assault the People's power in such a grievous way.

“Mr. President,

Of course we can't trust the People to choose their leaders wisely(at least most of the time). It is a result of our fallen state to have a mob mentality, and often results that leaders are elected on the basis of popularity and other weak attributes.

In the events of 2014, I would presume no advances in religion or revival has been made. The People of 1776 did have a Great Awakening to help make them wise. Since I see no similar movement of the Spirit of liberty, there needs a bit less freedom for the People today in choosing their leaders. That is why I support the term limits.”

Mr. President, that is the point I have been trying to make, and yet I am continually assaulted because of it. When I say that the People can not be trusted, and therefore we must make a government that does not depend solely upon them, people like Representatives Samuel and Garcia throw out words like "self government", and "the People", and tell me that the government must be accountable to them. However, these same representatives then tell me that the People can not be trusted, and are swayed by demagogues (pork barrel spending, having more money than opposing candidates, etc.), which is something I pointed out. Am I the only one who sees the irony in this?

I agree with Representative Garcia, the People of today can not be trusted to choose good leaders. So, why should we make government more accountable to them?

Samuel O wrote:
“Mr. President,
The people can and should elect the people for whom they choose and some politicians I guess can be truly beloved. But the problem is that many politicians stay in congress so long that they make a career out of it and they don’t serve so long because they are well liked. But instead, because, a lot of times they use pork barrel spending, gerrymandering and just plain having more money than a challenger does due to being an incumbent. Representative incumbents from World War II to 2008 have had a 92% reelection rate. We don’t want to have it where we have people serving just so they can find ways to climb up a political ladder and end up wielding enormous influence. Term limits would also help check lobbyists and would help to reduce corruption making it so people cannot just keep using earmarks.”

Mr. President, is not the irresponsibility of the People, which Representative Samuel speaks of, the very thing I was assaulted by him for speaking about? I call for a government that does not rely upon the People, and checks them through both a Biblical Common Law, and different ruling types (aristocrats and monarchs), and he attacks me for being anti-democratic. Then he calls for term limits because the people cannot choose leaders other than career demagogues.

Allow me to be blunt, if the People cannot be trusted to choose good leaders for themselves, then term limits will not help at all. It is like putting a sponge-bob band-aid on a decapitated trunk and expecting the dead man to come back to life. No, we must bury the dead man Democracy, and replace him with healthy man Mixed Government.

Samuel O wrote:
”Another thing is a poll done in 2011 showed three out of four people think that politicians worry too much about losing their jobs. Congressman a lot of times put their short term gain first for the sake of holding their postition for a longer time instead of putting first what’s best for the country. With term limits they would be limited anyway and wouldn’t be so concerned about themselves as in for their country.”

Of course politicians fear to lose their jobs. Do you blame them? Do you want to keep your job?
Aside from that, what is wrong with a "career politician"? They have too much power? What about a CEO, or a diplomat, or a General? If we limit the terms of the politicians, then let us limit the terms of the generals in the armed forces. Or how about the Director of the CIA, maybe we should limit its terms.

Question, why are we punishing politicians for having experience, and being elected by their kinsmen? That is all that term limits are, and we would never do it outside of government, so why should we bring it in?

Karis Heise wrote:
”Mr. President,
Term limits are an interesting thing. It seems that if you use them, you limit the rightful power of the people, but if you don’t you have a lot of what we see today, where corrupt candidates keep getting reelected either because of their money or because of the sheep-like and corrupt, supportive public.

I have heard, about an idea that might sort of help both problems. Basically, we could have term limits in the sense that we could give a candidate a limit of two terms back to back and then require that they don’t run the third election and sort of take a break until the election comes around again. So it would be: 2 terms, break giving someone new a chance then 2 terms, break etc. Hopefully this would allow the people to experience new leadership and maybe wake them up to their duty each election to research and really care about the candidates that they elect. Also I would like to mention that since we are using the National system this means that the Senators are not directly elected by the people so we do have that as an extra guard against the blindness of the people when they directly vote for House members.”

With limiting terms even like this, we run into imperfect representation, and we also run into another problem. With this kind of term limits, we prevent the country in an emergency from being able to choose its best leaders if those leaders have just run two terms back-to-back. This could be a major problem for this Nation, and I would prefer just scrapping term limits altogether.

Representative Heise has a good point, if we constitute the Senate well, they will be more than enough of a guard against the blindness of the People.
