Its time for U.S. voters to limit terms of justices, Congress

Editor, Ceres Courier,

Samuel Adams, signer of the declaration of independence in 1776 said: "If ever the time should come, when vain and aspiring men shall possess the highest seats in government, our country will stand in need of its experienced patriots to prevent its ruin." Certainly that time is now. The meaning of the word "experienced" as a modifier of "patriots" is uncertain but if your heart pangs for the current state of the USA, I'm certain it includes you.

Patriots, your country needs you now as never before in your lifetime. Please consider two actions: 1). Changing the rules by which our government operates and; 2). replacing your congressmen, especially your representative.

The first action requires amendment(s) to the Constitution including term limits for congressmen and Supreme Court justices. This will require a Convention of States as provided for in article V of the constitution. Please consider joining this effort in your state.

Replacement of your representative in the House of Representatives depends solely on the action of you and your fellow congressional district constituents. This is much easier done in the 2016 primary election than the general election.

A plan to achieve this is presented here:
