Term Limits

Pay every elected official minimum wage.  If you want to serve the nation as an elected official you should not become rich as a result.  Public service is just that, a service you perform for others, not for yourself. 

Millions of Americans volunteer as firemen, police, crossing guards, candy stripers, and for their church and for homeless shelters.  I see no reason to pay elected officials hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.

Elected officials should get two terms per life.  They should be allowed to run for re-election one time.  If they are appointed and serve a partial term, that still counts as one term.  They should not be allowed to run for any other elected office as long as their present term of office has not expired.  No more sitting senators running for president.  No more governors taking time off the job to run for senate.  If you want the job, do it until your term is finished; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
