A Second Thought on Congressional Term Limits

In my post Some Suggestions on Improving the Governance of the U.S.A. Part 1: Congress I suggested that Congressional representatives be limited to two terms but have come to realize that a representative’s second term will have to be financed and run while the representative is still serving HIS first term; therefore, not eliminating the possible corruptive influence of lobbyists.  A better solution is to allow a representative unlimited terms but not allow that representative to serve two consecutive terms.  Each State would also need to ban  a candidate from filing to run for office while serving as a representative.  Very important, though, are the rules for emptying a campaigner’s war chest soon after an election and not allow the creation of any war chest until after formally filing as a candidate for the elected position.
