I hope no one agrees will this dumb ass. This is a step that can turn America into becoming a dictatorship.

Seriously though, if there were no term limits Clinton would have been president at least until '04 if not longer (depending on his health mainly). What if, man what if...

The Constitution is not perfect and the Founding Fathers crafted it so that it could be re-interpreted over time and subjected to changes. I mean, the third Amendment is pretty much obsolete. The eighteenth amendment turned out so shitty that the twenty first amendment overturned it. I have no problem with repealing the twenty second amendment. And this isn't the first time such a proposal was brought up. Ever since 1985 when Ronald Reagan was serving his second term, there have been repeated attempts to repeal the twenty second amendment, but every time failed within Congress. But frankly, with this current Congress, any proposal would not go anywhere. And I can't imagine Obama would want to spend an extra four years with the shittiest and most stressful job in the country. So if I were you, I wouldn't worry about the possibility of a lifetime Obama presidency.

Yeah, no way a political leader wants to give up their power.

I think terms limits are a good thing. Someone shouldn't be able to stay in office their entire lives, especially when money rules elections

Do you agree there should be limits for Supreme Court justices?

The worst thing that ever happened to American politics is career politicians. Lobby groups love 'em.

In my opinion, there should be short terms enforced on all members of Congress - 6 years max.

People would be less likely to fuck their constituents if, after a few years, they have to go back and live with 'em in the same communities without the money and gifts they receive from long-term support of lobby groups.

Hmmm. Say Romney was elected and repealed Obamacare. What progress was made?

Not all politicians are comic-book villains, you know.

Well this is silly, go back 4 years.

Hmmm. Say Obama is elected and implements better healthcare. Was progress made?
