Issue of term limits should be on ballot

When the Mueller investigation proves that Russian interference in our 2016 election put Donald Trump in the White House, then what?

If his presidency is deemed to be illegitimate, then what? Is everyone in the White House evicted? If they don’t right the wrong, why bother to investigate?

And an even bigger question is how do they right the wrong? I have a really hard time believing that Trump would gracefully exit the White House. But if his presidency was ill-gotten, how can he possibly remain there?

And more importantly, how do we keep this from happening again?

One Senator suggested that we have back-up paper ballots. It would be terrible to have to go back to the old way of voting, but that may be the safest way. And speaking of ballots, I agree with the recent letter to the editor where a gentleman stated that we should have a serious discussion about term limits.

There has to be a reason why the president is limited to two terms. The question of term limits should be included on the ballot and term limits for Supreme Court Justices should most certainly

be included.

Career politicians are extremely susceptible to graft and corruption. They cave to the pressure of special interests.

Look at Mitch McConnell, Lindsay Graham, Chuck Schumer, Bernie Sanders, Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden, just to name a few. They’ve had their time, let someone else have a shot. They are too old and too set in their ways to be effective leaders.

Running the country is not a job for senior citizens. We need young blood and new ideas.
