I wonder how something like this would change the approach to campaigning...

In a perfect Democracy you'd be right, but our electoral process isn't exactly the best

I agree with this, which one of the two things that bothers me about the idea of the repeal.

what's the other thing?

I feel like presidents spend way too much of their first term campaigning for the second and splitting that attention causes a lot less to get done than what's supposed to. If there were no limit on terms, would it mean they'd be constantly campaigning and possibly playing it safer just for the sake of being re-elected instead of doing what they want/need to do with their job? If that were the case, I wouldn't want it. However, it could also be looked at as "Oh well I can't just campaign forever so I'll just do my best now and not worry about re-election" since there's no limit and they could always come back...I'm not sure. I just don't want so much time to be wasted by the president on campaigning.

My idea for what term limits should be...

1. Presidents are elected to one 6 year term

2. Presidents are NOT eligible for re-election after their first 6 year term.

3. They CAN be re-elected to a second term, just can't be immediately following their first term.


This gives PResidents more time to do what tehy're doing, without having to spend the entire first term worrying about re-election

I think I like this. Haven't had time to think about it more, but what I wanted to do revolved around one 6-year term as well.
