Fresh ideas and fresh energy benefits us all
I believe that society benefits from limiting our elected officials' terms. The continuous turnover of representation ensures that the evolving needs of the citizenry are always being met and that failed or stale programs are constantly challenged or reversed, as needed.
The initial intent of our Founding Fathers--as demonstrated through their actions--was for elected officials to serve a set amount of time as part of their civic duty, then return to private life and allow someone else to partake in public service. This idea is not passe. I fully support implementing term limits in Congress, placing a cap of 12 years of service in any one elected office.
