If Progressives were serious about getting big business out of politics this would be a step in the right direction
Plain and simple, we need term limits. As an example, every 2-4 years in Cincinnati, they redraw the district lines based on where republican voters live to ensure the same guy wins. He was an awful congressman and there was no way to get him voted out, since he had more republican voters in the district.
I didn't have an issue with him being a republican, I had an issue with him being a poor congressman. If there were term limits, he would have been out a long time ago and maybe someone better would have taken his place. Or someone worse. At least get the stagnant old farts out of congress and allow the chance for change. Seriously, if you look like you need to wear depends, what business do you have being in congress?

Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
California has term limits for the state legislators. The results have been mixed. The downside is that legislators are termed out when they have the knowledge and seniority to be most effective. The positive side is that individuals can't build up as much of a power-base that gives them a disproportionate amount of power. Another outcome is a game of musical chairs where the politicians move from job to job every eight years.
I would rather see other reforms of congress first before trying term limits, such as eliminating official recognition of the parties, ending seniority, eliminating filibusters, limiting the power of committee chairs to kill legislation and others. If that can't be done, or is found to be ineffective, then a limit of four four-year terms would be worth trying.
Has term limits improved the POTUS?

Our elected officials were not meant to have careers spanning three and four decades. Incumbents have a distinct and unfair advantage in getting re-elected. If you want to get rid of corruption and abuse of power - you should be for term limits on all elected offices. If you want the same old crap that we have now - if you want to keep the status quo and have no issue with the fools we have destroying our country while filling their pockets with cash and exempting themselves from the laws they make, you are against term limits.
