I don't think anyone would disagree that politicians need to serve their constituents and the public interests. !maybe they should have to sit out of ALL political offices and get private sector jobs. Or we could just elect them with a lottery like they did in ancient Greece

Or maybe they just run for a different office. The problem is the !musical chairs and career politicians. We don't elect ceos. The Supreme court works fine and that's for life. How much money does it take to by an office? Voters consume politicians like they consume breakfast cereal. It's all marketing

Not many people are cognitevly equipped to deal with the complex it and ambiguity of politics Mr. Underwood. Shorter term limits bring with them more campaining to get re-elected and more possibility of getting bribed and\or big money interests influencing politics. Your best best is to just mock the dopes and make ***** out of them like I do. These vulgar right wingers only understand intolerance and meanness. They are not civil or educated people.

I really don't get the point of the letter. It makes a number of statements, each of which could be a letter in itself. I wish the author had focused on one point and made it clear why he was presenting that point.

Looks like Mr Harris rewrote and resubmitted his own letter from 12/2.
