I believe there should not be term limits for Senators and the U.S. House of Representatives. In my opinion, limiting terms for these specific individuals would hinder the great things that the best senators are able to propose and put into law. The punishment would be, in fact, on these great people if they were forced to leave office regardless of their work, whereas a political field without term limits still has the potential to knock out bad senators, or representatives.

I don't think term limits for senators and the U.S house of representatives
is a good idea, i don't think it really gives other people the chance to be in office. We have term limits on the president of the united states thats a leader so why should we allow other leaders to stay in office as many times as they get elected.

Ok, here's the honest truth. I waited until the last minute to post my arugment for this round of the debate, and I am drunk...I'm not kidding, I just came back from a bar. That being said, I will reaffirm my opening arugment: I believe there should be NO TERM LIMITS for senators and U.S. House Representatives, because of the consequences limits would impose on the actually good elected officials. I do believe that the president should have term limits, as in the constitution, so we shall NOT have a Tyrant. I really can't write anything else right now. I'll write off you Mariah for the next round and we'll go from there.

Oh, by the way, I read a couple other debates you took on recently, and have to say I am thoroughly impressed with your debating skills. Just wait til i'm sober and we shall have it out! :-) Have a nice day.

Okay well i would like to say sorry because i completely messed up
my last argument :|

Okay let me to start over to haha, i believe term limits should be in place because not every senator and U.S. House Representatives is great theres just
a majority of people who are voting for that person, because they have the same views. And that senator might be taking the place once again of a senator who is more deserving.

Kind of and this might be really just a personal opinion but kind
of when Bush ran for his second term...a majority of the united
states voted for him and look where we are but thank god for term
limits he going to be replaced hopefully by someone whose smarter than
a box of rocks and who isn't greedy.

I think term limits are a smart idea because it gives that
person enough time to show what they can do change what they want
to change and then pass it to someone else that wants to do the same things.

Redman is SOO cool. I wish I could get drunk like he is. That is by far the coolest thing I have ever seen. I wish I was him.

By the way, if you really were hammered, who gets drunk and then sits at home on a debate website? To much cool to handle right now.

This debate is silly. Very silly, with little or no factual evidence. Also, does saying that your drunk give you special treatment?

No prob. Luck has nothing to do with it: you have a good way of communicating your thoughts, which most people do not, or never attempt to use. Keep it up, because it can take you far. Believe in what you say, and say what you mean. I will post my argument tomorrow.

Fun is what keeps life tolerable. When your 21, I hope Beer is as good to you as it has been to me :-)
