Term limits, you say? Smitty contemplates the matter:
There is no way, given a 300 million+ population, that the number fit to hold office is that small. We can’t be that hurting for talent.
The problem here is that people who are fit to hold office won’t even try, because they suspect — correctly, as it turns out — that the fix is in. So we get the same parade of maladroits and malefactors, D’s and R’s, year after even-numbered year.
Perhaps we’ll have to draft candidates.
On the other hand, I have no argument with this:
There is no excuse for our system of government to overgrow itself to the point that it takes a professional cadre with a lifetime of knowing where the bodies are buried in order to operate the thing. No. We keep it simple, and we swap out the people in charge at a reasonable frequency so that the playing field stays level.
Though I suspect there may be a few more, or a lot more, burials before that cadre can be sent packing.
