Take note everyone, Carl and I 100% agree on this statement.The counter-argument to that is that we already "have" term limits by virtue of the ballot box; you don't like the old one, vote 'em out of office.
Let me point out that the Articles of Confederation, that immediately preceded the Constitution, had term limits and the Constitution, in its original form, did not. Not on any office including the Presidency, which they were particularly wary of because they had just fought a very bloody revolution against a monachy. I take that as clear proof the Founding Fathers had found it was a really bad idea.
Think about it, if you had to have brain surgery, who would you prefer doing the operation: A kid still going through med school or an experienced, well-respected brain surgeon? Not much question. All other things being equal, experience counts in any profession.
I challenge you on the former to engage your brain and your eyes and think for yourself rather than parroting party line.
This is an insult that I would normally say is not worthy of a reply. But it is too infamous an accusation to let stand. Anyone who has read my posts has seen plenty of original, creative thinking on my part. Just because I come to different conclusions than you do, doesn't mean I haven't put thought into my positions.
Just who do you think you are to think your conclusions are so unassailable that no intelligent, thoughtful person could come to any other conclusion than you have? I find such arrogance absolutely appalling. It is certainly uncalled for and insufferable. I can't imagine what gave you the notion you have any right or reason to be so utterly dismissive of people who disagree with you.
You're an intelligent person who knows a lot of things, but your reasoning isn't infallible any more than anyone else's is. If you can't respect people who disagree with you, you have no business being the moderator of ANY forum.
You follow enough inferences and we can pin the Kennedy assassination of some Millennial who hadn't even been born in 1963!
I was trying to make the point that conspiracy theorists have shown how little connection to reality it takes to weave a few facts, a little supposition and some inferences into "proof" that, for instance, the Apollo missions were one of the greatest hoaxes on record.
