I am trying to figure out if you are really serious here.

Yes elections are one way to limit the time someone spends in office.

Term limits are important. Someone sitting in office for 50 years has been there too long.


Quoting Claire-Huxtable:

Term limits happen at the ballot box.   You have no reason to tell me that my representative has served too long.


Quoting Godgaveme4:

Term limits are important.



Quoting UpSheRises:

I hate term limits.

Thanks but i can decide when i am done having someone represent me. Thats why we have regularly scheduled elections, impeachment and recall procedures.

Maybe to someone who needs a nanny government. I don't. I'm comfortable of making decisions on my own.

I am completely serious.  Someone sitting in office for 50 years is there because the people have voted for that person.

You don't live in my district, so you should have absolutely no say over who I decide to vote for, even if I vote for the same person for 30 years.

Why? If they are doing a good job why can't they continue.

I do not like nanny governments, but I also do not agree with a monarchy form of government. Term limits have their purposes. And no one is telling you what decisions to make. You get to choose and decide who will be representing you in the next term.
