Politicians should serve two terms.
One in office and one in jail.
If they were only allowed one term in office, your recommended second term would probably not be required.
I'm all for term limits. IMHO, the limit should be no more than 12 years. Also if you want to run for a different office than what you have you have to resign your current office.
12 years would be six terms in the House, two terms in the Senate. It would pretty much put an end to Senators running for President.
I'd vote for a maximum of four years in office for any political position.
I've thought of exactly this with exception to senators not running for prez. I'm fine with that. Up to 12 years in Congress and up to 8 years POTUS. I don't think 12 years in house and another 12 years in Senate and 8 years as prez is a good idea.
I mean 12 years TOTAL.
Nope, one term only. That way they would not be beholden to anyone for re-election contributions. Maybe they would actually vote on what they think is right, rather than selling out for re-election funds.
Except for Trump give him a pass for as long as he keeps on doing what he's doing.
I've always thought 10 years would do. So one term as Senator and one as POTUS would be it. Two as Representative and one as Senator. One as Rep and two as POTUS, etc. same goal though, no life long positions. Also could only be a Senator for one term, that may be more important than allowing two POTUS terms personally.
I'm not opposed to those in Congress becoming President, but only with the most strict limits. It would definitely force more "outsiders" into that office and may bring business sense and may also force them to be more in tune with he people.
What about 2nd term POTUS requires X% of the vote or they are eliminated and there is another vote?
It would take a convention of states to do it. Congress would never vote this on themselves.
