Mr Luck believes that the abuses of incumbency have be- come so great It is necessary to our form of self-government that terms of service be limited. "Our founding fathers did loot establish this democracy for pro- fessional politicians." stressed Luck. "Unfortunately, most in- cumbents are so entrenched that many interested and quail- fled citizens do not make the ef- fort to run for office." "Fne retention rate for Incum- bents for Congress in 1988 was 99.2%. higher than in ahnost any communist regime." contin- ued Mr Luck. "In fact, it is harder to get elected to the United States Congress than it is to get elected to the Supreme Soviet." "We are faced wlth a 300 bil- lion dollar deficit because of the irresponsibility of tile United States Congress." emphasized Luck. "The Congress has been dominated by a single party for the last 36 years and that is part of the problem." "I have the utmost respect for men and women who dedicate their lives to public service," continued Mr Luck.
