5. Slight compromise -- 6 years

For most businesses and individuals, you are only required to keep tax records back for 6 or 7 years. So, ten years seems a little excessive.

I would totally support a 6 or 7 year rule and hope that all states, especially early voting states in the primaries/caucuses would adopt it so that it would weed out the candidates earlier. Last time, that would have eliminated Bernie and Trump from Iowa and New Hampshire. Just imagine, if Bernie couldn't have gotten the boost of a "surprising" Iowa result what might have happened... The Russian bots could not have pushed a Bernie or bust agenda or target Bernie voters to stay home, vote for Jill Stein, or throw away their vote in some other way (like 5 people who have told me or close friends that they wrote in Bernie), because everyone of those actions was essentially a vote for Trump.

Who would it eliminate this time?
