Term Limits for U.S. Legislators sign now

We the undersigned believe that our government was created to be "of the people, for the people and by the people". Those elected to the Senate and the House of Representatives were envisioned to be "citizen" legislators. What we have today are political franchises, and a ruling class.

The lack of term limits for elected members of the United States' legislative branch has had a negative effect on the governance of our country. Individuals who are sent to Washington to represent the interests of those that have elected them eventually act in self-preservation. People like Ted Kennedy, Robert Byrd, Strom Thurmond and others should not be able to remain in office for indefinite periods.

It is our belief that our government should be a "citizens" government, and do propose that U.S. senators should be limited to 3 terms, or 18 years of service, while representatives in the House should be limited to 9 terms totaling 18 years, as well.
