Whereas, the lack of term limits for elected public officials encourages them to take actions to retain the position rather than properly represent the citizens who elected them; and

Whereas, term limits would end politics as a career, eliminate today’s electoral bias toward advocates of government intervention, and recreate the long-lost ideal of citizen-legislators;
