    This position is far too idealistic. This stance is only viable in a perfect world, with no corruption or backroom deals.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    The Bill of Rights was designed with a corrupt leader in mind. That's the reason why US Constitution is the longest functioning constitution in the world.
    I come from one of the least corrupt places in the world so I suppose I'm naive in that sense.

    Sounds like the amount of terms is the least of your worries.

    Yes.

    Who is right, is subjective. All ruling entities create chaos and disruption, in some sense. Therefore, each group needs a definitive limit.

    Well, we have limitless Congressmen, too. And as Lateralus said, limitless Supreme Court justices (judges).
    You can't spell "justice" without ISTJ.

    How about they add term limits for Congress instead and fix that broken institution.
