The concept of term limits is imposed by honorable men — truly, “if Mr. Washington leaves the presidency as he has said, then he will have respect worldwide,” (British opinion 1789).
If Mr. Washington could see the problem with a lifetime of public service and Mr. Tom Jefferson had a similar vision of democracy gone awry, then why do we in the 21st Century adopt a do-nothing attitude toward limiting government service?
My pledge: I believe in honorable men. I also believe honorable men have the capacity of becoming dishonorable men. I am resolved this date to commit the balance of my life to affecting term limits.
With additional support from 10 percent of registered voters in a coalition statewide, term limits will result. Take the pledge today. My phone number is 229-891-3303.

And would you like fries with that?
Most of us have seen the Chick-fil-A signs that urge us to “eat more chicken.” So would you ever expect to see one that says, “eat more crickets?”
