We are told the term limits are at election time. If you are satisfied with what we have now, go for it. If a candidate says he/she will go to Washington to fight and sue President Obama, you are not for me. We have to many “Fighters” in the Senate and Congress already.

We sent a nut that turned out to be an embarrassment to Texas. We already know what the current career politicians can do — shut down the government, vote as their party tells them to vote, etc. It’s time to try some fresh blood. If they do not work out, they will be a one-term politician.

The attorney general is a carbon copy of our current governor (wherever he may be), going around the world setting himself up for a try at the president, at our expense. It’s time to cut our current politicians off and try someone else.
