Longer terms=Fewer Conservatives?

A new Gallup survey indicates what we all know: we don’t think much of Congress. Their approval rating is abysmal: only 26% of Republicans and Democrats approve of the job Congress is doing and even fewer Independents think much of Congress. An interesting observation by American Thinker writer Larry Anderson: the longer a conservative is in Congress the more moderate they become. The longer a moderate is in Congress the more liberal. In Anderson’s words: “Your congressman may have kissed your baby or found your lost social security check, but odds are that if he has been in office for more than a decade…he is no longer a conservative.” Sure makes you wish for another groundswell for term limits.
