Limiting the terms of public servants is a sure way of limiting corruption, which develops over time. If each elected official is made to fear retribution for corruption by termination for ill considered actions, perhaps better government may ensue. At minimum, new thought is ensured.


The sure way to improve administration of government is to limit the terms of officers. Voters may participate in insuring their own prospects by not supporting any official seated for more than two terms, as is currently determined for Presidents of the United States (ruled by the 22nd Amendment to the Constitution). Voters in elections must simply vote for challengers to entrenched incumbents, or vote for no candidate (only other items).

“Experience hath shewn, that even under the best forms of government those entrusted with power have, in time, and by slow operations, perverted it into tyranny.”

[Thom. Jefferson]
