I have always been a proponent of term limits. True, you may end up
with the same type of person particularly due to political party
affiliation, but you may not. Faced with a term limit individuals may
vote their conscience more often as opposed to being handcuffed by
the omnipresent political calculation. It may also bring in individuals
who have fresh ideas and perspectives interacting with those same
new individuals.

I am also in favor of extending the terms of our elected officials as
many are easily re-elected to begin with. It is somewhat unfair to
expect someone in their prime earning years to leave their
employment and run for office only to be subjected to being voted out
of office every two years. In effect you are perpetually running for
office and fundraising when you need to be concentrating on working.

Fewer elections would also mean less cost to the taxpayer for running
elections.
