House adopts resolution calling for convention on congressional term limits

Rep. Chris Todd (R-Jackson) makes the motion to close all House Republican Caucus meetings to the public and the press on Nov. 24, 2020. (Erik Schelzig, Tennessee Journal)

The state House has voted 53-34 to join a call for a national constitutional convention to set term limits for members of Congress. While the margin appears lopsided, the measure sponsored by Rep. Chris Todd (R-Jackson) received only three more votes than the minimum needed to clear the chamber. The resolution now heads for the consideration in the Senate.

Tennessee’s congressional delegation has seen some turnover in recent years. Rep. Scott DesJarlais of Winchester and Chuck Fleischmann pf Chattanooga have the longest tenures among Republicans as they are in their sixth terms. Rep. David Kustoff (R-Memphis) is in this third term, while Reps. Tim Burchett (R-Knoxville), Mark Green (R-Ashland City), and John Rose (R-Cookeville) are in their second. Rep. Diana Harshbarger (R-Kingsport) is a freshman.

Among Democrats, Rep. Jim Cooper of Nashville is in his 10th term and Rep. Steve Cohen of Memphis is in his eighth.

Here’s a release from the group U.S. Term Limits lauding Thursday’s floor vote:

Nashville, TN — Today, the Tennessee House of Representatives passed HJR8, a resolution declaring that the state legislature seeks to join other states in proposing an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to establish term limits on Congress. The bipartisan vote was 53 yeas – 34 nays, overwhelmingly in favor of passage. The effort, sponsored by state Rep. Chris Todd, is being spearheaded by the nonpartisan, grassroots nonprofit, U.S. Term Limits.

Rep. Chris Todd said, “Now, more than ever we see the need for limiting the terms of the U.S. Congress. You would be hard-pressed to adequately defend the loss of new ideas and vision we all observe and the potential corruption that comes with being a career politician in Congress.”

According to a recent RMG Research poll, 78% of likely voters in Tennessee support term limits on Congress, including strong support among Republicans, Democrats, and independents alike.
U.S. Term Limits President Philip Blumel commended the Tennessee House of Representatives saying, “The people of Tennessee are lucky to have public servants who see what is going on in D.C. and are willing to take action to fix it. They know that Congress won’t set term limits on itself. Therefore, it is the obligation of the states to do so.”

Once the senate passes the sister resolution, Tennessee will join other states in the call for a convention for the exclusive purpose of proposing term limits on the U.S. Congress. Thirty-four state legislatures must pass similar resolutions on the topic and approve the term limits amendment before it goes to the states for ratification.

        Well I asked that very question. Here was his answer:
        Because, sir it is obvious to anyone that we already have term limits in Tennessee. Observation of any election shows that incumbents are being replaced regularly. There is a stark difference in the level of election finance between state and federal levels.

      Hey Stu, your conservative high-scoring buddy in Alabama that was running for Senate, John Merrill, spent days raging in denial of the allegations about his affair with another woman than his wife. He denied and denied with great indignance to all who would listen, he denied everything and blamed it all on political opponents…right up until the 17 minute tape was released publicly by his girlfriend. This was very much like the pattern you see in so many cases of wrongdoing by conservatives AND republicans, always deny everything until any real evidence surfaces, then just cut and run! You say that Dems are simply “banging on” about conservative AND republican corruption but you must realize by now that it is happening more and more frequently across the country – and the question with Gaetz’s disgusting level of lawbreaking is/should be troubling to your party. I suppose, to you though it is just one less true conservative to feed with donations since he pulled out of the race.

        GOP hypocrisy is a story as old as time. Remember in 2004 when Bush and the Falwells led a crusade against same-sex civil unions to protect the sanctity of marriage? And then celebrated and revered Rudy Giuliani who divorced his first-cousin to shack up with a gay couple in NY?

        And Stuart, I’m not sex-obsessed. That would be you and the GOP. Democrats don’t have sex scandals because they have a healthy attitude toward sex among consenting adults. Oh, and because they aren’t pedophiles.

    You can Not Limit a Convention it can rewrite the whole constitution. States think they can control the convention or the delegates, but the Constitution only says the states can petition congress to call a convention. That is ALL The STATES can do.
    Yeah, in today’s political climate and shenanigans, it is really not a good time to change the constitution.

    I cannot believe that people are calling for Term Limits for Congress.

    Here are some reasons that this is a bad proposal.

    First off, the Founding Fathers discussed and debated Term Limits when they were drafting the Constitution. Alexander Hamilton wrote in the Federalist, No. 72, “Nothing appears more plausible at first sight, nor more ill-founded upon close inspection.”

    Next, is the issue of a lame-duck congressman, what incentive would they have to follow the Constitution? Would they be easier prey for lobbyists? Do you remember the lame-duck special session of Congress back in 1994, when a lot of congressmen lost their seats, but they came back in November after the election and voted and passed GATT? Most Americans were against this treaty, and the elections had been held already, and the congressmen who were voted out did not have to worry about facing re-election.

    Some say it is too hard to vote out ‘bad’ congressmen. Well remember House Speaker Tom Foley? Yep, voted OUT, beat by a political Novice. House Ways and Means committee chairman, Dan Rostenkowski, voted Out. The voters Term-Limited them!

    Oh and remember the election of 1992, we got 124 NEW freshmen members of Congress… remember the 1994 election, 87 new Representatives and 11 New senators. And the voters did this without term-limits.

    I would even say that term-limits would make some of us lazy. Right now we have a congressman’s voting record to view to see if we want to re-elect them or not. But if there were term-limits, then some might say, well it doesn’t really matter if my congressman is doing bad, he will be term-limited next time anyway. People want a quick fix.

    Another point with term-limits, congressmen will be ‘new’ at the game and will have to rely on their staff more and more. These congressmen’s staff will be in high demand and then staff personel will start to wield their power, because the congressmen will need them to ‘get things done’. And these office staff are not voted into office by the voters, so we will have no voice in this.

    And if you think there will not be career politicians, you might want to think again. After the politicians make their rounds from the house and perhaps the senate, where will they go? They will look to the executive branch, as there are plenty of federal jobs in the various executive departments. So once the congressman is term limited, he may want to help the current president with a bill or two so that the congressman can get that cushy job.

    And speaking of Term-Limits and the President…. How is that working out for you? We have Term-Limits for Presidents, but has that helped us have better Presidents?

    I think the internet will help us become better voters because we will have the advantage of doing our own research, analysis, and comparison. We will have more dialog with our elected officials and with each other. We can have our own virtual town-hall meetings, our own soap-box and we can help each other stay informed on our current congressman and together hold his feet to the fire.

    But in the long run, I don’t think the issue is Term-Limits, it is a Constitutional Convention. Term-Limits is just a sound-byte that the establishment is trying to hook unthinking voters into wanting to change the Constitution. They have been trying for years to force the states to call a Constitutional Convention. Once is was for Equal Rights, then it was for a Balance Budget, next even a Line-Item veto, now, it is the Term-Limit issue. The laymen here in the trenches are unhappy with the government and term-limits seem to be a ‘easy’ way to fix the problem. Make no mistake about it, they want to rewrite our constitution, and make you think we need just a little change here or there. And remember, those that voted for the current elected officials would vote you a new constitution. Will they vote a better one in than the one we have now? I don’t think so. Don’t Do IT!

    If he and those supporting this assault on our constitution had a clue they would know the problem is not term limits but the fact that most politicians are corrupt. So term limits will just circulate more corrupt politcians in an out of office more often. Really how do you idiots think term limits will stop a corrupt person from being corrupt. The real problem is voters are too lazy to research who they vote for and work to get rid of those that do not do their job and stand by their oath. This will only allow voters to be even less engaged and we will just see corrupt people move in and out faster but the corruption will still be there. And this will also leave seats unfilled when a persons term is up and no one steps up to run. I can only keep saying….idiots….idiots….idiots

  • 1. US Term Limits, COS, BBA for USA, and the other organizations pushing for an Article V convention assure State Legislators that THEY will select the Delegates to the Convention and control everything they do.

    But our Constitution doesn’t say that. The convention lobby made it up – and gullible state legislators believe it so much that they REFUSE to look at the FACTS which contradict the falsehoods the convention lobby is telling them.

    Article V, US Constitution, says Congress “calls” the Convention. And Article I, Sec. 8, last clause, US Constitution, shows that Congress has the power to make the laws necessary and proper to carry out its power to “call” the convention. That includes, among other things, the power to determine the number and selection process for Delegates.

    The April 2014 Report of the Congressional Research Service shows that Congress recognizes that it has the power “to determine the number and selection process for delegates”!

    So Congress has, pursuant to Article I, Sec. 8, last clause, the power to determine who the Delegates will be. State Legislators can’t seem to get this thru their heads!

    So if CONGRESS selects themselves as Delegates, select kamala Harris, etc.; how are State Legislatures going to control what they do?

    2. Delegates to an Article V convention (whoever they may be) have the power to impose a new Constitution instead of proposing amendments to our existing Constitution. James Madison was a delegate to the Federal convention of 1787 which was called to propose amendments to our first Constitution, the Articles of Confederation. But instead of proposing amendments, the Delegates wrote a new Constitution. And the new Constitution had its own new – and easier – mode of ratification. In Federalist Paper No. 40 (15th para), Madison invoked that “transcendent and precious right”, set forth in our Declaration of Independence, of a people to throw off one government and set up a new government as justification for what the delegates did.

    If there is a convention today, the delegates have that same right – they can throw off the Constitution we have a propose a new one which has ITS own mode of ratification, such as a national referendum.

    New Constitutions are already proposed or waiting in the wings!

    The proposed Constitution for the NewStates of America is ratified by a referendum called by the President. The States don’t vote on it, they are dissolved and replaced by regional governments answerable to the new national gov’t. We are disarmed by this Constitution. And whoever controls the voting machines will determine the outcome. http://www.sweetliberty.org/issues/concon/newstates.htm

    The globalists want a new Constitution which transforms the United States from a sovereign nation to a member state of the North American Union. https://www.renewamerica.com/columns/huldah/191206

    George Soros wants a Marxist Constitution https://keywiki.org/Constitution_2020

    Or will Congress appoint Delegates who will impose the new Constitution the Chi-coms want for our Country?

    We’ll just have to get a convention before we know what comes out of it.

    Shame on the Tennessee Legislators who refuse to listen to the Warnings.

    Not that Stuart guy says:

    I’d more likely favor term limits for the General Assembly than for Congress. Our legislators at the state level are more out of touch with their constituents than their peers in DC. Not really their fault, the media that people consume do not cover local legislative affairs adequately. So, the people do not know what our locals are up to, so mischief is accomplished.
    In theory, I am opposed to term limits as offensive to the Constitution, but when that document was written, newspapers were actually read. I’m agnostic to the idea now.

    With no term limits re-election is the over riding interest of most political candidates. NOTHING else matters. Perhaps term limits would free them up to serve the country’s interest rather than their own political careers.

    It won’t ever happen since THEY are the ones who have to vote to do this. So, no worries for those who oppose it.

      With term limits the overriding interest of members of the political class is feathering their nest in order to pave the way for their next gig. All the more so insofar as they don’t have to worry about their constituents because they are not standing for re-election, they can concentrate on the needs and the interests of their most important constituency THEMSELVES.

        How do you feather your nest in just 8 years rather than 24? If worrying primarily about their constituents were to be the main focus then we might as well have a DEMOCRACY~ which we purposely do not. Giving your constituents 30 Trillion of money you don’t have to get re-elected is exactly why modern debt (even in robust economic times) is happening. No one seeking re-election tells taxpayers you need to PAY for the things you want.

        The WW2 crowd not only fought and won the war they came home and with relatively high taxes for the “average man and the rich” they paid off the WW2 debt. But back then few politicians made a lifetime of elected office. Now that is the goal for most rather than the situation for few.

    • Congressional Term Limits has a deadly “unintended consequence”: It is actually a transfer of Power FROM The People TO the bureaucrats in the Deep State.

      And then too, there is the “extravagant risk” to our existing Constitution of an Article V convention.

    Term Limits would be a good start but a huge increase in prosecution and enforcement of corruption and wrongdoing along with much stricter enforcement of ethics in politics at all levels of government would be an even better achievement for the country. The current level of corruption and misuse of office by politicians at all levels of government is astounding. We have the basic laws about ethics, we just need to enforce them, for all politicians, in all parties, at all levels. The Emoluments Clause cries-out for reform!

    With the Four Lamars retiring from the U. S. Senate in 2022 I know all my fellow conservatives are watching developments in those four states as we seek to take advantage of the resulting open seats to move the Republican Party rightward. In Ohio, with Rob “Lamar” Portman (Heritage-56%) leaving the Senate there are a number of candidates ready to pile into the Ohio Republican Primary. I called your attention to the candidacy of solid conservative Josh Mandel former Ohio Treasurer before and now I am happy to report that the Senate Conservative Fund has joined the Club For Growth in endorsing Josh. Obviously conservatives are coalescing in their support for Josh which bodes well for us in the primary.

        For those of you who are visiting from another country you must be wondering what the hell Taxpayer is talking about when he mentions a “conservative and republican parties” and what’s this about “. . .a pitiful collapse. . . .” You must forgive Taxpayer, he is well meaning but a bit delusional so allow me to clear up any confusion you may have as follows:

        1. What you were taught in school is correct, in the USA there are two major parties as there are in most English speaking countries. In the US it’s the Republican and the Democratic Parties.

        2. There are a number of daffy predictions you will read on this forum, recently someone even insistently proclaimed some wrestler is going to replace our very rich and reasonably popular sitting Governor. For Taxpayer it’s the coming collapse of the Republican Party. All humans and their institutions eventually come to an end but I will let you judge about how imminent that end is near for the Republican Party by the following statistics:

        (a) There are 27 Republican and 23 Democratic governors leading our states,

        (b) There are 1,089 Republican and 869 Democratic state senators in our state legislatures.

        (c) There are 2,918 Republican and 2,447 Democratic state house members in the state ” .

        (d) There are 211 Republican and 218 Democratic members of the U.S. House.

        (e) The 100 member U. S. Senate is evenly divided between Republicans and Democrats.

        The Republican Presidential Candidate received about 74.2 million votes in last year’s Presidential election the most votes ever received by a Republican presidential candidate.

        I am sorry visitors for any confusion Taxpayer’s delusions may have caused you. We are a country of over 325 million and like I am confident is true of your own country – it takes all kinds.

          But let’s pretend like there is merit to the metric. Trump, a syndicated reality TV personality, received more votes than any other Republican in history. The WWE guy from Knoxville can beat Bill Lee in a Tennessee gubernatorial primary easily.

Microanalysing the precise number of Trump votes, the reason for the number of Trump votes, or whether Trump won or lost misses the point viz. THE REPUBLICAN PARTY SHOWS ABSOLUTELY NO SIGNS OF “COLLAPSE” AND IT’S DELUSIONAL TO SAY THAT IT DOES.

    I just received some fabulous news from the 3 1/2 Lamars Retirement Project. DONALD TRUMP HAS ENDORSED MO BROOKS TO REPLACE RICHARD SHELBY IN THE U. S. SENATE. That my friends should take care of that!

    The reason this is such an important development is that it was feared that arch Trumpidian Lynda Blanchard would run thus forcing Trump to remain neutral and splitting the conservative vote. Now with Trump’s endorsement of the great Mo Brooks that probably won’t happen or if it does it will not make that much difference. The only other potential candidate is Katie Boyd Britt a No Record Candidate who is Shelby’s top aide and will probably have the backing of the centrist/tepid conservative Republican establishment. Tonight a big step was taken in moving one of Alabama’s senate seats about 25% further to the right.

      Well there is a kernel of wisdom in what you say Taxpayer. I sure wish that just as conservatives should NEVER send money to the Republican Party, they should NEVER send money to Trump. I am happy to assure you Taxpayer that I have never for a minute considered doing so. Rather I suggest that Tennessee conservatives save their money during 2021 in a fund that will be devoted to the 2022 election. In 2022 we should fund needy conservative candidates who can win under the following schedule:

      1. Conservative candidates in the August Tennessee Republican primary.

      2. Conservative candidates outside of Tennessee in Republican primaries with special attention to the 3 1/2 Lamars Retirement Project.

      3. Conservative Republican House contests outside of Tennessee. (There is little chance for the Republicans to gain control of the U.S. Senate insofar as they are, I believe, defending 20 seats while the Democrats are only defending 13. Our best chance lies with a takeover of the U.S. House to throttle the remaining two years of the demented Big Guy’s administration.)

      That is how the SIA Evangelical Conservative PCF will be allocating its grants in aid. I will try to remember to keep you all informed.

    I have never claimed that I “KNOW” the facts Stu. I meerly point out the ALLEGATIONS that most of your high scorers seem to accumulate. The truth usually rolls in shortly after all the allegations. This type behavior from Gaetz is all about his “wants,” not “needs,” but we are glad to know now that you highly approve his fiancé. Stu, admit it, you just don’t get it!
