In the 1940’s, the American people, though they continued to vote for him, expressed concern about a President for life, Roosevelt having been elected four times. Until Roosevelt, Presidents had followed the example of George Washington and served only two terms. This was a fundamental concern of the Founders. They rejected the idea of a King. And so, the nation rallied to pass the 22nd Amendment, limiting the term of President to two elected terms. This was a missed opportunity.
In the year 2010, it is time to complete the process started by the citizens of the 20th century. By term limiting Senators and Representatives to twelve years, we can solve a multitude of problems.
