Reform Term Limits

No Senator, Representative or President may serve consecutive terms. Tere will be no limit on the number of terms served for any of these offices.

This would ensure that no elected official would be able to use their incumbency to their advantage. Candidates that have already served after at least one term away from office, and would most likely have to go through another primary. Also gives the candidates on "off season" in which to raise funds, so that they spend the entirety of the time they are in office legislating or executing the law.

Agreed; but I already post such an idea. I would give congressmen two consequtive terms only.

I couldn't tell if the idea proposed was exactly the same as mine. The no consecutive terms whatsoever is an important component, sine it will prevent Elected Officials from campaigning while in office.

You are right about congressmen not being able to campaign while in office. Maybe one consecutive terms is a better idea!!!!!!
