The term limits on presidents is one of the few tools we have to protect us from lifers who envision themselves as kings.  Even after eight years they come to believe they are infallible.  Write to congressman Serrano and tell him to withdraw this bill!

No public official should be allowed to serve more than two terms.  Look what career politicians have brought us.  We should not only maintain the current limits onpresidents, but extend that to congress as a whole and to the Supreme Court.  NO ONE should be given a lifetime appointment to any political office or allowed to transform their office into a lifetime career.
