How inured to politics we all have become when we can so casually talk about how many tens of millions have been given to the political parties, largely to be used to ensure incumbent Senators and Representatives get themselves reelected until they can die in office.

How about we pass a Constitutional Amendment that:

** Repeals the 17th Amendment and returns the appointment of US Senators to the State Legislatures

** Sets the annual salary of a Senator or Representative at $5000.

** Sets a dollar limit of $10,000 for any political campaign.

** Imposes a two term limit on US Senators to be phased in.

** Imposes a six term limit on US House Representatives, to be phased in.

We hear a lot of lip service about getting the money out of politics, and the above would make for a very good start....

Just remember folks, money alone can't buy you love or happiness, in politics as in everything else.
