In response to Dennis Bertrand’s letter Aug. 14: I think the author’s “term limits” solution for all politicians is a bummer. If they face certain dismissal, regardless of their performance, I assure you they’ll more likely butter up to potential “Big Business” employers than to the wants of their constituents.
Also note that if President Franklin D. Roosevelt had been term limited, depriving us of his great leadership, these letters would possibly be in German or Japanese.
I urge more reliance on balanced political information (e.g. MSNBC versus Fox News, or Thom Hartmann versus Rush Limbaugh) rather than faith in term limits.
