Politics gone awry

What is happening to our country's political system? Campaigns from state to national have been relegated to personal attacks. Democrats and Republicans are guilty -- not all, but many are. I would like to see common sense and common decency prevail.

What is happening to our country's political system?

Campaigns from state to national have been relegated to personal attacks. Democrats and Republicans are guilty - not all, but many are. I would like to see common sense and common decency prevail.

I don't hear or see a lot of discussions, debates and possible solutions relating to issues that affect the American people. I do listen to various news programs, but it has become a chore.

Campaign finance reform, placing limits on the length of campaigns, and term limits could help promote the change that I feel most Americans want. Term limits at all the state and national levels would remove the option for politicians turning their service into a career.
