The only thing that irks me about instituting term limits is that some people are incumbents for a reason - they do a good job. Sure we'd be throwing out a lot of garbage, but would we be replacing it with garbage, and would we be replacing our valuable seats with garbage as well?
Ted Cruz is the dumbest person alive.
You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

And I'm more concerned with the rulings made by lower court judges than I am the Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States.
Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
give em' all two consecutive terms. then they have to wait another term to run again.
I absolutely support term limits, the American electorate are demonstrated idiots who cannot collectively make informed, rational, intelligent decisions. They vote from the gut, not the facts and decades of poor education has made them sheep, easy to manipulate with sound bites and flashy commercials. So long as that is the case, so long as they will vote for the incumbent just because it's the only name on the ballot they recognize, we need to keep moving these shyster lifetime politicians out of office, at the very least to keep new, uncorrupted blood moving in. Once these guys are in office long enough, they care more about feathering their own nest than serving the public interest they were elected to do.
Throw 'em all out. We can't do any worse than we already are.
Term limits are not a restriction on the power of government. Term limits are a restriction on the power of the people.
