Familiarity breeds contempt. The longer they are there, the more contempt is felt by We The People. Term limits ensure a decline in lobbying success. More involvement in government would be possible from others - whether you call them outsiders or newcomers. A bigger effort can also be made thru public participation by the electorate. Make our representatives accountable or they will not be re-elected ...... regardless of the # of terms they are allowed to serve. They already have term limits - it's just not being enforced by public opinion. The results of the most recent election should tell us that we absolutely can NOT lose our voice now.
