Term limits got rid of a good many dedicated public servants too. A good example was Quentin Kopp. However much I disagree with his politics, the guy was honest.
I agree with you. I think term limits are a bad idea. The assumption is that no one ever seeks office because he’s a dedicated public servant who wants to make this country a better place. With term limits, if you elect someone who’s in there doing a great job and commanding respect from everyone, he’s forced to quit, for no reason other than to kick out the occasional bad guy. That’s wrong, and it hurts our country.
If the Founding Fathers didn’t want career politicians in office, then term limits would have been part of our Constitution. They’re not.
