If a President does a good job for his first 2 terms why shouldn't he be able to come back for a 3rd term if he is needed?

Although it would seem to make sense that the president would get a third term but the thing is that if we were to give that president a third term then after a while we would have to give them a 4th term because people would think that they would be a good president then and so-on and so-forth, and that is not what a constitutional-republic is its a monarchy which is what we tried to escape from in 1775. No president before FDR has ever ran for more than 2 terms, and even after FDR's death congress made it so that you can only run for 2 terms. It's simply that we don't want the U.S.A. to become a monarchy.
