I know there are arguments out there for why it is beneficial for politicians to serve multiple terms. However, allowing politicians to serve multiple terms leads to corruption. By restricting politicians to only one term, we make them focus on doing the right thing while they are in office and not what will make them re-elected once again. It doesn't remove all the influence corporations have on lawmakers in DC, but it does reduce it by a substantial amount.

I am a little leary of replacing the present politicians with "new empty-pockets".

Bullshit, if I could I'd still be voting for ol' Bubba Clinton. As they say, a blowjob is better than no job.

I say not even that. They can do too much damage in even one term. We need to firing them instant on the internet when they fail. Obama should have been fired his first week when he gave trillions to the banks. We need a way to fire them instantly with an Internet vote and we need a back up to take his place instantly when we do. Presidents standing in line for the job. And if we find a good one, damn i,t we keep him in a while. No term limits are really needed either if we can track the guy.
