Seems like he proposes it once every two years or so. Want me to keep going?
I suppose you took my remarks as sarcasm rather than genuine curiosity. I asked for people to look this stuff up for me, because I am:
Now, while I am all for term limits, there is an argument to be made to repeal it. If the people like a President, why not allow them to decide to
limit his terms in the ballot box? Wouldn't that be more of a democratic way to determine it? This is was Reagan's argument.
In an ideal world, keeping a president you like around for a bit longer might be a good thing. But when you get people like Bush and his brother, and
all their good buddies raping up the electoral system, to get him elected not just once but twice, the idea becomes pretty scary.
In other words, the American electoral system is outwardly visibly democratic, but I doubt it's truly much different to how things roll over in
Zimbabwe, they're just slightly more subtle about covering up corruption in America. Plus most Americans dont give two hoots about it anyhow, since
the majority are watching the zombiebox.
