Term limits idea

MOULTRIE — Dear editor:

The concept of term limits is imposed by honorable men — truly, “if Mr. Washington leaves the presidency as he has said, then he will have respect worldwide,” (British opinion 1789).

If Mr. Washington could see the problem with a lifetime of public service and Mr. Tom Jefferson had a similar vision of democracy gone awry, then why do we in the 21st Century adopt a do-nothing attitude toward limiting government service?

My pledge: I believe in honorable men. I also believe honorable men have the capacity of becoming dishonorable men. I am resolved this date to commit the balance of my life to affecting term limits.

With additional support from 10 percent of registered voters in a coalition statewide, term limits will result. Take the pledge today. My phone number is 229-891-3303.

Tom Rogers Sr.

Moultrie

Poll

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
