    Some people still believe the Senate is salvageable in 2022. I am not one of those people.
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    He should never have promised to term limit himself.
    Now people have to wonder what other promises he will break.
    He should be running for Governor instead since he made that promise.

    Are you sure he did that, or did he just run on supporting them? If so, that is a promise kept. You would never get term limits implemented if every politician who supported term limits only stayed in for 2 terms. There is no logical reason why a person cannot run on a platform of setting term limits and also run for more than 2 terms, since everybody else still follows the old rules.

    He promised to quit after two terms.
    It was a dumb promise.

    Meh, if I elect a politician, I would prefer one who is willing to change their mind on issues if they get new information or hear a better argument. The only real promise I care about is that they are fighting for us and not just themselves or some elites promising to take care of them.

    I don't think anybody cares. The only people who will attack him on that are Leftists, and their opinions don't matter.

    The federal government itself is fundamentally broken and cannot be revived. The best we can do is slow down it's travels in the wrong direction. That's why having people like Thomas and Rand up there are a good thing. But we also need people like them, and DeSantis, on the state level pushing back against the feds.

    I'm pretty sure he never made that promise and this HuffPo article supports my recollection.

    https://www.huffpost.com/entry/lets-...nt-to_n_781678

    Elsewhere, Senators Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), Mike Lee (R-Utah), and Rand Paul (R-Kent.) "voice their support" for term limits, without making any promise of self-imposed limits.

    He did say publicly that he couldn't see himself serving more than 2 terms. He pretty much said the same thing privately too. But as far as I know he didn't make any hard commitments on the issue.
