So just yesterday I had a thought, and I punched "term limits congressmen" into Google. The first link that came up took me to Wikipedia, where I found out that several states tried to limit their state assembly representatives and congressional representatives to a number of terms. The congressional term limits were struck down by the Supreme Court apparently, on the principle that states don't have the power to overrule the Constitution on this matter. So I thought, why not pass an amendment to do it? Lo and behold, a [link=http://thomas.loc.gov/cgi-bin/bdquery/z?d112:sj11:]bill[/link] was [link=http://www.ustl.org/]introduced[/link] just yesterday to do just that, by Jim DeMint of all people. And apparently the idea is pretty popular, if the poll (by Fox News) on that second link is to be believed. So any thoughts? Are there any downsides to limiting Congressmen to serving a finite number of terms before having to step down?
