  •  I would like to see a single 8-year term (0+ / 0-)

    for POTUS. It would relieve the President from having to start running for re-election the day after taking office, and it would let him/her take a somewhat longer view of problems without having to wonder how it would affect re-election. He/she could perhaps do a little more "presiding". Not all Presidents win re-election, but most do, and it's often sad how some good Presidents have been tossed out simply because they ran out of time. I am thinking of President Carter here.

    Voting is the means by which the public is distracted from the realities of power and its exercise.
