I am opposed to term limits.  They are simply a means for a particular group to drive somebody out of office when they can't get the votes to do it.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

Generally speaking I am, too.  However, I do think that the two-term limit for president is good.

I have no problem with the limits in place now.  In fact, I wouldn't mind one six-year term for a President.

That's an interesting thought.  What about one eight-year term?

Really?  How about term limits for Supreme Court Justices??

Nope.  I'm OK with the current set-up.  I don't want President's to use Supreme Court nominations (and possible candidates) in their campaigns.

Term limits, or a mandatory retirement age?
