Serve at the Pleasure of the People :: SINGLE ADEQUATE TERM Limit

We the People, undersigned, do hereby petition you, as our currently elected officials to study and put into action a plan to radically change the landscape of our Democracy by instituting a set of term limits to apply to the offices of the President, the US Congress, and the US Senate, modifying and limiting the terms of those offices as outlined below.


We feel that these changes would have a positive effect upon the management of the People's business, and would diversify and broaden citizen participation in public service.


Because if an elected official has no reelection to worry about, (s)he can spend her whole term fully engaged in the exercise of serving the people, and then move on, either to pursue other elected offices, or to return to private life and pursuits.
