"Politicians should be limited to two terms. One in office, & one in jail."

Fascinating. We entrust our 'politicians' with our well-being...and yet from the get-go assign such cynicism, such dismissiveness. On whom does this reflect most?

(And for the record, though I've been against the idea of 'term limits', I'm beginning to think there should be a limit. Of one term, period. To more ensure people actually spending their time doing their job, 'one and done'.)

The more predictable the results become, the less likely people are to vote, even if they are voting for the probable winner.

Then this pretty much proves the weak element in the formula, yes?

If an employer keeps hiring people who don't work out, who can't get the job done, who not only fail to live up to expectations but maybe even steal...then really; where does the problem lie? With the job applicants? Or with the 'employer', the one who's responsible for getting the right people in the positions on which so much is riding?

If people applied the same amount of inclination, effort and importance in choosing their public servants (and in engaging them post-election and in actually participating in the governance process) to choosing marriage partners, our divorce rate would be closer to 100%.

Seriously; the solution is right there, looking us squarely in the face. (And yes, is the size of an elephant.)
