The original purpose was to try to make sure that no one had an iron grip on the office like so many governers and Congressmen have. This would not be the case if they had a limit on consecutive terms because we could see what someone else could do. I believe that we should limit the consecutive terms so that a person who does a good job isn't permanently forced out of their position. This should also include Congressmen and state and local positions.

I'm just asking a question Dave....

I'm also giving credit to the American people, if there is a leader they don't like they won't elect him to a third term. In my lifetime I can only think of 2 presidents who had the remotest chance at a third term....Reagan and Clinton.

I just think that if we have a president who is getting things done, and people like the way he's doing it....then why not let him stay in office? If his opponent for the next term is better(or they think he is) they'll vote for him.

US is not used to have a president for a third term, and I don't think they ever will. Even thou the only two president who could deserve a third would be the late Roland Reagan and former president Bill Clinton america would not get used to the thoughtor idea of having them for a third term. I'm sure the people would feel like they are on a dictatorship if any president is elected for a third term no matter how "loved" that persident was or can be.

Yes. I grow weary of this.

I don't think even Reagan would have been reelected for a third term.....Clinton is a strong possibility, I suppose, but he had many detractors at the end as well.....

I don't think it would be a great idea just because it wouldn't seem like Americans still had the same choice.....I do agree, to an extent, that maybe they should be able to run again at a later date.....I dunno.....this is a good question, but I don't have a definitive answer for it at this point.....

Well allow me to explain that in Louisiana we have a system like that which I mentioned earlier in this thread for our governor position. Only twice (to my knowledge which I'll admit is very limited) has this been attempted and only once (I'm quite sure of this one) has the candidate succeeded in beating the incumbent who replaced them. Just for the record this one is now in a federal prison.

Reagan would have definately won, since he couldn't run again Bush Sr was nominated and elected. America loved Reagan.
Clinton I think could have pulled off 3 terms as well, going into his second term we knew what type of person he was...but we still re-elected him, he was charismatic.

I think allowing more terms would be a good thing....however it should still be limited Perhaps 3-4 terms.

If the majority of the people believe the President is doing a good job, why not give them a chance to continue? By switching administrations...all we do is halt whatever progress they might have been making.

If Chimp gets a first term ( he wasn't elected in 2000 that was handed to him ) he'de probably just declare himself King for Life.

If he wins this time that means they stole it again.

900,000 jobs lost in his 4 years and besides Iran has 300,000 troops we're gonna need a lotta cannon fodder if he keeps it.

Now you have managed to change the subject and I am just as bad for responding, but how do you reach this conclusion?

Does the Supreme Court not have the right to stop a recount if it has gone on for too long?
