Term Limits

This is the opinion of an investment counselor who lives in Virginia, just outside of the District of Columbia. I am in favor of strict term limits in America. Two terms in the senate and one term in congress should be sufficient for an individual to serve the country to the best of their ability, and then return to private life as a citizen. Career politicians with life-long agendas and far-reaching power and influence would be a thing of the past; senators and congressmen would not become millionaires at the expense of the taxpayers; they would not become beltway-insiders who are out of touch with the people.
I would like to see a single 6-year term for the presidency. This would give a sufficient term to be effective, while eliminating the time and expense of campaigning while in office.
