I think when the founders drafted the constitution they never thought of term limits and also allowed lifetime appointments for judges because 200+ years ago people did not live that long.


On the other hand Killer they Hoped that the majority of our citizenry would be virtuous. This is the main problem. If the people suck, so do the politicians and vice versa.

" Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people"- John Adams

When asked to what kind of Gov we have?

" A republic if you can keep it?"- Ben Franklin

200 years ago we also didn't have 47 million people on food stamps
Gov has only doubled just since 1990

The marriage between the people of this great country and it's Constitution has simply failed. The grand experiment our Founders created has failed.  I also believe that until the remaining virtuous citizenry left first all realize that and then unite on it, nothing changes until our eventual countries collapse.

Me personally, I don't even think 'term limits' would even make a difference. Too many people have been 'bought off' and re-conditioned'. Embarrassed

I am uncertain as to the worst constitutional amendment.  Well then, maybe the worst is 12th Amendment( the Electoral college).

              I agree the 16th and 17th Amendments are monsters. The 14th Amendment part that can be interpreted that illegals born here are citizens has to be rewritten too. I deplore giving  the Senate 6 year terms. I also would plead with people that 2 people cannot represent a State as they will become corrupted and not serve the people. We need term limits for Congress and  the supreme court. Anti Federalists like James Monroe and Federal Farmer proposed term limits.

The Constitution has always had the Electoral College.  The 12th Amendment just refined it a bit.
