How do you feel about term limits for Senate and Congress?
No. Let them serve as long as both they choose and as long as they can win re-election.
Yes. 1 term limit per office, lifetime. (2 yrs for Congress, 6 yrs for Senate).
Yes. 1 consecutive term limit per office (1 term at a time, even if completing an unexpired term)
Yes. But I believe this is how many terms should be the limit. (Please specify)
Yes, just as they now do, they are called winning re-election.

I voted the 2nd option, but I would also be alright with the 3rd option. Mixed feelings between the two.
I do feel that incumbency does give an unfair advantage to so few, taking away the voice, and opportunity of the many.
not a big fan of the idea.... but I wouldn't fight against it if it happened.
I rather like the idea of being able to choose my representation... i'm not a fan of a statute limiting that choice arbitrarily.
that's the funny thing about term limits... everybody is in favor of them when they don't like the congresscritter... but nobody thinks about a congresscritter you actually like and want to keep around.
if we had congresscritters that were worth a damn, i would oppose term limits more ardently... but we don't, so i don't...every stinking one of them sucks.
I'm torn on this topic. I understand the rationale but I also feel that people should be able to elect who they want.
Before you criticize someone you should walk a mile in their shoes, that way when you do criticize them you'll be a mile away and you'll have their shoes.
OTJ training every two years makes so much sense.
A 3-year term makes more sense--since nothing happens in the first or last year of the 2-year term .
Chemists Have Solutions .
the founders created a system, of only 2 years for each person of the house, want to remove them vote him out!
the senate was a different matter, the senators were picked by the legislature of states, ..it has been ONLY after the 17th amendment you have long term serving senators.
repeal the 17th to put government back in balance
Anti-Democracy advocate, Mixed government is the only good government
THE second point to be examined is, whether the [constitutional ]convention were authorized to frame and propose this mixed Constitution.
