Time again for term limits

Dear Editor:

I am a resident of Limestone County. I have seen tremendous changes in Alabama politics. I remember when conservatives were all Democrats; now they are all liberals. I remember when Republicans were the liberals, but now a large percent of them are somewhat conservative.

I also remember when we all believed in term limits. It is easy and simple to return to term limits and far better than what we have today. All we have to do is not vote for anyone running for a third term. Let's not blame our congressmen and senators, it's just vote for change.

Change absolutely cannot be as bad as what we get from these power grabbing, glory seeking and money loving men. They are self serving and not willing to do what is best for our county, state and country, only interested in getting re-elected. Only voters can change this. Will you help me accomplish it before it is too late?

Please join me at the polls and see what We the People can accomplish. Do it now.

I would like to see a change where all able body men and women would work for a living. What can I do for my country?

I am an 86 year old who loves his country, and desires to see something better for my children and grandchildren. I am also a veteran who served the country I love and do not want to see it go under.
