I don't consider anything you said pessimistic, Dun. I consider it truthfully forthright, pal.Without term limits the ship sinks before launching and I don't see the DC professionals term limiting themselves. Term limiting has to start with the ones who had the term limits in their paws all along, the voters, and I also don't see the voters term limiting those who give them their handouts. You know yourself we the people, the working middle class of the country, are outnumbered by the freeloaders, moochers, illegals and ne'er do wells.
Sorry to be so pessimistic in some's view but I see it as being realistic.
