    So there are a ton of threads that boil down to, how even on 9/11 and with the recent attacks on embassies, the president and mr Romney couldn't take the day off from campaigning. Someone mentioned that the whole campaign season is too long, and I agree, when November comes most Americans are just happy to have it over with. Well another poster responded that having each president serve 1 six year term, instead of 2 four year terms would cut the whole campaign culture down significantly.

    I thought it was interesting. Thoughts?

    Only way it happens is a Constitutional Amendment. You think it is a good idea? Petition your Representative and both your Senators to submit it as proposed Constitutional amendment. Then campaign to get enough members of Congress to agree, then campaign to get 37 States to agree.

    It does not matter one whit what you think or I think or anyone ese thinks unless it is the proper majorities in Both HOUSES of Congress.

    SO get to work.

    So you want to prevent the people from being able to reelect the President... So we will have no way to keep him accountable to the people because he will no longer have to do anything to get our votes.

    Is this really what we want?

    How do you plan on working it out? A Constitutional Amendment or martial law?
