    I would be willing to go to four terms for Members of the House. Two for all others.

    I would settle for a feeble attempt to at least follow the constitution and amendments we have.

    And just what would happen to the electoral college? It would be as if it did not exist.

    That is the final defense of us here in fly-over country.

    Unless you're willing to give up the Electoral College, this is still a dumb idea. This would essentially give the Democratic candidate near half the votes needed to win the presidency. With NY and Cali alone would put them almost at 300. This would leave the GOP, or any other candidate, needing to win every other state.

    Not fair to congress critters unless you're willing to increase their term to 4 years instead of 2 and lower the senate term to 4. That said, I do agree with term limits.
