I’m so confident we’ll get a BBA I’m working on #2, which in my mind is more important then #1 — term limits.
I found out about a lawyer in Kansas City who’s decided he wants an Article V Amendment Convention to propose a Congressional term limits amendment. His name is Aaron Cook, and he’s got a website, termlimitconvention.org. I gave him ten names in six states to call — people who have passed a BBA Resolution in their legislature, and might be ready for #2.
A BBA should be bipartisan — 65% of Democrats support it. But it hasn’t been, up to now. Democrats are afraid this will hurt them politically, and a lot of leftist Dems want to close the deficit through taxes on the rich. Term limits should be completely bipartisan. Everybody hates Congress and just about everybody in it. Look what just happened to House Majority Leader Eric Cantor. Congress has a 7% approval rating — the 7% of the country that has absolutely no idea of what’s going on. Looking at my crystal ball, I see that 7% dwindling, as Obama and a Republican Congress wage total war for the last two years of his term.
I’ll be staying in touch with Aaron. He’s a political amateur, God love him, but if he’s willing to devote time to this, so am I. We’ll find allies — hopefully a bunch of Democratic ones — who will join the cause.
