No More Career Politicians!

November 11, 2009

When the Founding Fathers came together to craft the Constitution, they brought with them many ideas in which America would be set apart from other nations. First and foremost, the power would reside in the people and not an all powerful king or all powerful government.

The government was divided into three branches so that power could be shared. In addition, the Founding Fathers believed in the notion of a “citizen legislator.” The idea of a “career politician” was foreign to them. People were lawyers, or craftsmen, or farmers. They did not make a “living” from politics. As we have seen over the years, regardless of what party is in power… power corrupts. It’s time to get rid of the career politician and bring back the citizen legislator. And… there is only one way to do this: a constitutional amendment.

We have seen it time and time again. Someone gets elected with grand plans to help their district, or state, or nation. They go to Washington, DC to do a job, and then they never want to leave. They become part of the system, and the goal then becomes to get reelected for the sake of holding office, not doing the job they were elected to do.
