    Isn't there another country that does this? In South America I think.

    I'm not sure they would be able to muster the votes to amend the constitution to do this.

    As far as the merits of the proposition...at this point I think it might be a good idea. Every President spends the first 4 years in the White House trying to get re-elected to a second term.

    it might be a good idea, like someone else said they spend the first four years trying to get re elected. If they didn't have to worry about it they might get more done.

    Yes Patek, because we all know that your idea was so original. :rolleyes:

    I'm not in favor of Term Limits. I feel that the U.S. deserves whatever they elect. If they're stupid enough to elect a idiot more than twice then that is on them.

    it's amazing that amendment was passed. considering how difficult it is to amend the constitution. was still a democratic congress to boot, I believe.

    I'm not too surprised it passed. Wasn't the first stupid thing Congress passed and certainly won't be the last.
