The 3% that matters more this fall is the economic growth rate we will see for 2018, 3%+.

Nah, you speak as a goofy ass kid with a internet connection and way too much time on his hands. Get a job, a wife and 3 or 4 kids would be my recommendation. Learn about the REAL world.

Here's the problem: The incumbents are almost always voted IN AGAIN.

We just had that happen in AZ. Debbie Lesko (R) and Dr. Hiral Tiperneni (D).
The GOP poured a truckload of money into Lesko's campaign and of course she WON--AGAIN. She's aiming to be another career politician. Just like McCain and Flake.
She was in the "soup" for campaign finance fraud but WON ANYWAY.
And that's the takeaway...

In the past Lesko could have won 70% of the vote by spending $10,000.
Leaving a GOP with a lot of congressional cash to lavish on candidates in purple districts.
But they had to spend millions to get 2.5% advantage, in a district they owned outright previously.
Put credible Democratic candidates in every district,and the money that the GOP used in the past to take the close races, isn't there.

Energize the youth vote, the hispanic vote, etc. and make the deep red districts competitive,and you have a Democratic Majority.
In Every election since Trump won, Democrats have way overperformed their past efforts in those districts.
Do that in every district and you have Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House.

I will say again, that term limits would be a partial fix to a major problem with our electoral system. Another would be longer terms but that has its own built in problem.

The big problem is that your Congress has only 2 years to convince the populous that they should be re-elected so they fear doing things that would be good in the long term but might hurt in the short term. And when you have candidates who are more than willing to "shade the truth" about what the incumbent has done and emphasis the short term pain but not talk about the long term gain. So they don't do those necessary things in order to get re-elected.

I'm not criticising the FFs. Just like giving the President absolute pardoning power, they assumed only moral gentlemen would seek public office. And they thought someone would sacrifice his farm for a couple of years, do his public duty and then get back to running his farm. The concept of professional politician was unthinkable to them.

Plus to their minds, with the turnover they envisioned, four year terms but a two year cycle would keep some experience in Congress.

It did not work out that way.

Term limits are a better choice but still wouldn't help with the current two year election cycle combined with the power of political parties.

A lamb does not have horns and neither does a domesticated adult sheep. A kid goat does not have horns but an adult goat does. Take my word that a ram will butt you when not looking and knock you to the ground. A ewe will not butt you hard but will give a friendly butt.

LOL, yeah OK. So limiting the amount of time a career politician can hold office is akin to multiple elections? How does that work?
