So the people shouldn't be able to be represented by the person they want to represent them?

That's the other side of the story.

By that argument, should the president not be term limited? I'll take the term limits and having to choose a new guy once in a while over the current career politicians getting more and more corrupt with every passing year system we have in place now.

I would accept term limits if the office holder could run again after 1 term out of office.

I hope it's as thick as a landslide.

I don't subscribe to the lefts notion of politicians being these entitled, enlightened individuals above the poor, ignorant masses.

I have yet to find one classy statement post mortum from her removal. Any true public servant would step aside graciously and thank the people for the opportunity to serve and say nothing more. Instead she goes on shows acting like some pouty, indignant teenager Valley Girl smacking her lips and giving us the scrunched up, disbelieved look as we though we are all so retarded and stupid and instead should be kissing her manky feet and worshiping her as our Lord and Queen.

Like the Putin/Medvedev past the football around type of term limits?

We have a sickness in this country and it's professional politicians who are like a fungus that cannot be eradicated. They build up little fiefdoms and horse trade in Congress or state legislatures deals back and forth. The right people get paid in one form or another and work to rig and snuff out any challengers for them in primaries.

The president has the chance at 2 terms and he is still a very powerful man. Hasn't hurt the office of the presidency and keeps personality cults at bay. FDR was a disastrous president who built up a personality cult and made sure his voters got handed out goodies and those big bad productive people got taxed to the death and everyone suffered with the destruction of the US economy and a prolonged depression.

It's time to break up the mafia of these professional hucksters in power for decades at the local to federal level. We have millions of very bright, qualified people in this country who deserve a shot at serving the public.

This should serve as a great learning experience for both Democrats and Republicans. You follow the wishes of your constituents, not your party.

What? I get pulling things out of your rear to attempt to make a point (maybe?, not really), but that's just dumb. No one in their right mind thinks that, on either side, unless you're working for an info-tainment source, or are one of their blind, deaf, and dumb followers.

Buzz. Try again. Pick a larger sample size.

For crying out loud - I forget how small a world view some possess until politics begins being discussed and terms like "tyranny" start getting thrown around loosely, or someone actually argues against term limits, etc . . . . . . .

Based on many of your comments, I've not put much stock into what you have to say anyway. But if you really think this is about magazine limits and background checks, you're simply not intelligent enough to carry on an discussion.

You silver- tongued devil.

x 2. By obvious reasons, term limits, will never become reality (with exceptions; presidential office and sim). If that is the case, voters should approach the voting booths with the idea to Re-elect No One. This age of "Lap Dog" and "Power Hungry" long term public servants needs to stop! They are both an embarrassment and dangerous to the people they, in theory, represent.
