Response to Swede Atlanta (Reply #18)

22. If the FF had wanted term limits, they very easily could have written them in.

Too often, "term limits" are the excuse used by the people who constantly lose since their ideas are out of sync with most of America (see the religious right) as their desperate attempt to shoehorn their person in.

Term limits are legitimate in the case of the POTUS because the chief executive has a tremendous amount of power unique only to that office. It is dangerous to allow anyone to sit in that chair for too long.

But it's a special case. I do not think term limits are appropriate for Congress.
