Former Microsoft COO Bob Herbold argues politicians should only serve one term.

best line in the vid:
'we need people who are willing to vote their conscious'

what do you think?

crazy man or genius idea?

Absolute Power Corrupts Absolutely...

Yes there should be term limits because time is an evil temptress in the realm of a politician. Time and tenure equal power which brings about those who wish to influence or exercise that power.

Its quite twisted and in my neck of the woods, Cleveland, there is currently a mind altering corruption/federal racketeering trial going on involving County Commissioner and all of those who fell under his spell including our former County Auditor. Its Quite the classic Case and served to shake up our political structure for the good I hope.

In regards to Congress, I've always said two terms and that's it either split or consecutive.

Local politics can get just as bad when you have a mayor who's been sitting on a throne for 20 plus years also.

Two years limit, then they should not be able to be run for anything again, for four years.
After that they could be re-elected for something a second time.
And then there would be no more chances.
