This is a no brainier, public office in this country was never intended to be a career and our first president drove that spirit home by only serving 2 terms when he could have kept the presidency as long as he wanted. Serving in office was once a job of civic duty from which the office holder would leave to return to their original profession. The balance of power in this country has so shifted to the federal government because of power hungry career politicians whose only profession is to master the useless skill of staying in office and getting rich by using outright poll tested lies. They are betraying and insulting their constituents and Americans who still have faith in our system. Not one of these career politicians has lived up to their promises and have so weakened our economy with deficits and weakened our foreign policy with disunity that we now stand at the point where our country may never recover. Term limits would at least ensure that those who run have a real interest in serving the country rather than just destroying our country trying to keep their jobs. The fact is that historically once a world power loses the position of world leader it never regains that stature. And considering that the only world powers seeking to take up that mantle once our career politicians have completed their job of tearing our country down, are authoritarian anti freedom, anti liberty regimes like China and Russia, Iran etc... the notion that future American generations may be forced to learn Chinese and Russian at gunpoint in the new world order our career politicians have allowed to emerge forces me to watch in despair as the country I loved and believed in proves me wrong every day.
