We even had term limits in the local home school group that I belonged to while educating my kids at home ... three years ... so one person would not become entrenched in leadership.
Term limits would have to be across-the-board so to apply to everyone on all sides of the political aisle.
From Americans for Limited Government:
If the year of the “Tea Party” and the summer of the “Town Hall” are to bring lasting change to the American political system, then the elected representatives of both parties need to heed the fundamental message that was sent.Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) has proposed term limits of three terms (6 years) for the U.S. House of Representatives and two terms (12 years) for the U.S. Senate. He is brave to step forward on this issue ... so now the question is, "Who else already in office will step to the plate and stand with him?"
That message? “Enough is enough.”
Fifteen years ago, Republicans were swept into power pledging to bring fundamental change to Washington – including term limits. Of course, along with most of the promises contained in the “Contract with America,” term limits were abandoned very soon after the election.
As often happens to someone working on principle, he may find himself standing alone.
