A convergence of term limits, redistricting, ideology and inexperience in Congress and state legislatures will result in even more partisan gridlock.

Term limits are built into the constitution, we have the option of not voting for career politicians. Yet, many seem to forget that when they enter the voting both and simply vote party and name recognition. Even those not in Congress are now hired by all TV and radio stations to give their opinions, and these people are overtly and intentionally rude to one another. We can't seem to address any issue to actually benefit the public without becoming excessively partisan. The author is correct that Teabaggers though not having rallies any longer, as they have now become the majority of the republican thinking, are having a deeply decisive impact.

Term limits were proven ineffective by Solon, circa 600 BC. When imposed, Politicians stopped selling out for campaign cash and started selling out for cushy jobs after their terms.

Term limits fosters ignorance in how programs and government works and leads to reams of unworkable and unconstitutional legislation since there no longer are persons in office with sufficient knowledge to mentor others nor consensus standards that legislation should be workable and constitutional. The vacuum then becomes filled by sound bites that play well in the media.
