    Do you support term limits (Broken poll, don't use)

    Some people seem to like term limits, feeling it keeps people from being "career" politicians, takes away the "incumbant advantage" from stiffling competition, lowers the amount of special interest, makes politicians focus on legislating not running for reelection, etc.

    On the flip side, some seem to dislike them as it limits the peoples choices, doesn't allow people to become well versed in effectively doing the job, amongst other reasons.

    What are your thoughts on term limits on the federal level and why we should / shouldn't have them.

    Re: Do you support term limits

    I support reasonable term limits based on the amount of time necessary to learn the job vs. the amount of time necessary to let power corrupt them.

    Can you switch the poll to check boxes instead of radio buttons?
