Border crisis shows need for term limits

One only has to watch what is going on in our government, to agree with me that we need term limits.

When people have worked in government so long that they believe that their personal ideas are better than what is good for the country, it is time that they retire. This is on both sides of the aisle. We are having problems at the border. You may think that it won’t influence you this far away from the border, but it already is. We are paying for everyone coming across the border through our taxes.

Those people are breaking the law, but why not, there has been a lot of that going on in the last two-plus years. Even the 9th Circuit Court thinks they know better than one that is president, this also includes our own state attorney general by blocking everything that would benefit this country.

It is time to stop where this is going to end up. A country without laws, morals, values is chaos. Which hands over to those creating this mess an opportunity to create their own law. Heaven help us.
