I favor a complete rewrite where your amendments would become part of the original document. ~Jimmy

On the last one it should say "no more than two terms." If you have the word consecutive in there they could just skip a turn :(

That was intentional Matt, a compromise between just two terms and forever. The deal is they have to go do something else, even if it's some other government slacker job, so they're not the incumbent. Hopefully they go do a real job in their district or State, but the voters get to see it either way.
