You’re Sued!

“Firing politicians is what democracy’s all about. But politicians don’t like being fired. Even when ‘You’re fired!’ is a signature line. It definitely explains why incumbents tend to oppose term limits. As shown in the long history of term limits in my home state, Arkansas. In 1992, an all-volunteer petition drive placed the initiative on the ballot and a grassroots campaign beat the Good Ole Boy network and their $500,000 in paid media warnings of ‘outsiders.’ The victory sent shockwaves through the Arkansas political establishment; term limits received more YES votes than President-Elect Bill Clinton had garnered in his home state. Arkansas pols have been at war with term limits ever since.” (06/02/21)
