Term Limits

Imposing term limits on legislators would have little effect.  Special Interests would simply recruit more sycophants to run.

Sycophant is defined as a person who acts obsequiously toward someone important in order to gain advantage. Synonyms include: yes-man, toady, lickspittle, flatterer, flunky, lackey, stooge and suck-up.

It would be better to limit campaign finance to just voters and ban special interest from contributing to political campaigns. The “political speech rights” argument against this is bogus. Special interests could exercise their right to “free speech” on their own websites.

Term limits would certainly catch career Democrats and RINOs, but a new bunch of hucksters and flimflammers would quickly replace them.
