I wish there was a way to limit the massive perks politicians get, but that is a fantasy that can never be realized. People are running for office for the sole purpose of getting rich, and the power they wield is the ultimate aphrodisiac.

Too bad we can't just start fresh again.

If you study the trajectory of every society since records have been kept, it's not too hard to find where we are on that path. Regarding politicians? Term limits and no further dabbling allowed. Of course, as with anything they get their hands on, there is always a way to manipulate/deceive, so I'm sure it wouldn't be the perfect solution...

Why would they want to cut their own throats? Isn't that what term limits would do? I'm all for term limits. There are so many "professional" politicians there is nothing they can't screw up. But they now hold so much power a common person with common sense and a will to do a job and represent the U.S. with honor and integrity will never be allowed to make it on an election ballot.
