A term limit is a law that limits the amount of time a political representative may hold an elected office. In the U.S. the office of the President is restricted to two four year terms. There are currently no term limits for Congressional terms but various states and cities have enacted term limits for their elected officials at the local level.
That's a double edged sword, if you make the term too short they'll have to be even more corrupt to scam what ever they can from American tax payers. If you leave them in too long they can take their time screwing everyone. I just think they should be bi-annually audited by independent parties and the auditing company has to change each time. If the books and emails are missing or out of order the Congress member will have to pay for the extra time it takes to find those items. If too much is missing they would have to step down and be held under house arrest until the matter is resolved.
What comes to my mind when seeing this question is this "Is there any role that is benefited by the use of term limits for elected positions" I truly think but am open to discussion that as long as people keep voting someone into a role they should keep that role.
Yes. Given the state of the Supreme Court & decisions like Citizens United, it is doubtful whether elections actually serve as term limits. As a result, I support implementing term limits for members of Congress, at least until Citizens United is repealed.
Some of our politicians have never touched grass, have never experienced life in private business, and some have been away for so long they don't know what's changed.
Maybe the limit is age, maybe on bills passed, etc.
Something needs to change. Because our politicians are becoming celebrities.
