    which might make sense.  Certainly we need to think about some way to allow a president to govern instead of running for re-election all the time.

    I also think Supreme Court Justices need long, but nonetheless finite terms.

    Barack Obama is not a secret socialist class warrior who wants to redistribute wealth in America. But I'll still vote for him, anyway.

      It seems to be a good thing. But, getting the US to change anything like this...oh boy!

      For if there is a sin against life, it consists perhaps not so much in despairing of life as in hoping for another life and in eluding the implacable grandeur of this life. - Albert Camus
