We need to get rid of career politicians. We have to end the lewd relationship between Congress and Wall Street. The only way to do that is to put the same term limits on Congress as the office of the president of the United States. If you're serious about government reform, you won't let this opportunity pass. It takes but a moment to create an account on WhiteHouse.gov and sign. Show your commitment, sign, and share! Thank you.

Voters are easily fooled by smart campaign managers who depend upon name recognition and money to sway those same voters. People won't usually vote someone they don't feel they know. They'll keep casting their ballot for someone who is familiar even if that person isn't the best candidate. Advertising is a huge part of a successfully run campaign, and those who run them depend upon the laziness and even the ignorance of people to be easily manipulated into continuing to vote incumbents into office. As as your comment can easily point out, the system of leaving it up to voters hasn't worked very well. Look where we are today?
