Send incumbents packing this November

Ultimately, our Founding Fathers decided against term limits and our Constitution was ratified without them.

Those who stood against term limits argued regular elections by the people could be a better check on corruption. Well, Nov. 6 is when we, the people, can impose term limits by NOT voting for any incumbent.

In 2016, 97 percent of House incumbents were reelected, as were 93 percent in the Senate. Yet, according to a Gallup poll the approval rating for Congress in 2016 was 19 percent.

We didn’t approve of the work they were doing, but we reelected them.

Congress’ approval rating as of Aug. 12 was 17 percent. Let’s do a better job this go-round.
