Cap Political Terms
A different system is needed.
WHAT: Cap the number of terms that any elected Senator or lower house Member can serve in parliament.
WHY: Career politicians are completely out of touch with the average Aussie. Rarely having to experience the consequences of the policies they support, they end up spending more time trying to stay in power than actually representing their electorates.
Politicians who have never had a real job outside of the party machines and associated entities/supporters, after joining the young Libs or Labor at a young age, work for a politician or the party machine and then eventually get elected and then proceed to cruise along achieving very little over many years.
HOW: I propose if elected we either pass a bill through parliament capping political terms or get the parties and other elected officials to sign to a voluntary system where the candidate will just not recontest after they have reached their limit of terms.
