Term limits :

It would be nice to think that term limits was the magic bullet to cure bad politics, but it's just not true. In order for a politician to be effective, they have to know people -- what they have and what they want. And you just can't reasonably do that in a short period of time. You have to interact with your friends and enemies all the time to find out what you need to know, but also to determine whether or not they can be trusted to come through on something. You don't want to waste your time with liars. But it takes time to be a good politician, and limiting them to short terms will only attract opportunists and quick sell-outs who do not have the best interests of their constituents in mind and can be easily swayed by pushing a briefcase full of money at them.

You want things to get worse? Push for term limits.
