I'm feeling very sad that President Bush is soon going to be serving his last 4 years as President.<br><br>Wouldn't it be great if there were no term limits on the Presidency.<br><br><br><br>[color:blue]All your sock puppets are belong to us</font color=blue>
No, I think it is a good idea. FDR's four terms was the drive behind the limits and in retrospect, it is a good argument that FDR was too sick and should not have ran for a fourth term.<br><br>I do think they should allow a non-native citizen run for president though.<br><br>
I actually think the term limits should be expanded, to include all federal elected offices. <br><br>Two terms is good enough for the presidency, it ought to be the same for the House and the Senate. <br><br><br><br>
More than 8 years of George Bush? Even with the repeal of Roe v Wade I don't think the country could make enough cannon fodder the way he goes through it.<br><br>Now if we were in our 12th going on 16 years of a Clinton economy it might make sense.<br><br><br><br><br><br>
I don't think a President, regardless of party affiliation, would have the life force to survive more than two terms these days. Take a look at how quickly all the presidents age as soon as they take office. Even W looks like he's put on 15 years in the span of four. I'm sure it a nearly 24/7/365 job, and the beating they take from constant partisan closet diving for their skeletons doesn't help much either.<br><br>
They do, but they don't use it. <br><br>I used to be against term limits, but I changed my mind. <br><br>The corrupting nature of endlessly serving in government, along with the overwhelming powers of incumbency too often ensures that people stay in the House and Senate forever.<br><br>So many people vote on name recognition alone....they become lazy and disengaged. Somebody once had the idea that all federal elected officials should serve a single, six-year term, with no reelection. That's an interesting idea to me. <br><br>
actually, i am not opposed to term limits. i think trying to get lawmakers to put a deadline on their length of tenure is asking for the impossible.<br><br><br>--<br>one of the penalties for refusing to participate in politics is that you end up being governed by your inferiors. -Plato
Further proof that most law-makers/politicians don't really know jack a/b teamwork and truly productive and beneficial agendas. It would be refreshing to see these guys for once try to build on each others policies instead of insisting that they have a "better plan" than the last guy. And that's a bi-partisan observation, BTW.<br><br>
