Lifetime Tenure and Dark Money
As citizens of a bygone era, the Framers of our nation's Constitution could not possibly have foreseen the lengths to which anti-democratic, foreign and domestic
individuals would go to undermine our elections and our democracy.
Luckily for the Framers, in their time, serving the nation was still considered a privilege, not a conduit to wealth and power
Unfortunately, In our era we have a Republican party leadership which aids and abbets a president who has openly conspired with foreign dictators to
undermine our elections, our constitution and our democracy — and, banana-republic-style, refuses to concede a certified election he has indisputably lost.
As long as self-serving quasi-Americans like these are able to stay in power for decades, protecting the likes of would-be dictators like Donald

, derail the People's Agenda and handicap Democratic
presidents. Remember Merrick Garland?
Opposition to term limits in the face of U.S. Census tampering, gerrymandering and non-stop, systemic voter suppression can only be
described as asking for more of the same!
The following, therefore, are offered as solutions designed to put a damper on the erosion of our electoral system.
To make up for demographic trends which are thinning the ranks of their party, Republicans have been shamelessly and illegally kicking voters off the voting
rolls in order to stay in power.
Ending Government Shutdowns
It is monumentally absurd that a single individual — whether president, senator or whomever — ignoring the consequences for the country,
should have the absolute power to shut down the United States government — just because he can!
In fact, putting an end to this thoughtless, harmful, perennial threat is not difficult at all. In fact, the solution is quite simple:
