    The United Staes Congress

     
    Consider the priorities of a sitting congressman. First and foremost, over and above all other issues, is reelection. To be relelected, blind loyalty to his or her party is required simply for renomination. Then, the "party" assumes many of the same characteristics as a riot, a mindless monster with only one goal, in this case, to destroy the opposition. Principles, patriotism, conscience and honesty become secondary and often ignored.

    Perhaps the solution is a six year term for both houses and a one-term limit. It couldn't be worse than than the present self-serving, nation destroying (consider the vote-buying national debt) reelection oriented terms.
