The 22nd Amendment was enacted after Franklin Delano Roosevelt was elected as president for a fourth term. This amendment imposes a two-term limit on presidential candidates.

This amendment ensures that the office is held by someone possesses the stamina and is free from any mental deficiencies that tend to come with age. Why do we not extend the same protection to our legislators by limiting senators and representatives to two-term limits?

We have career politicians, not citizen legislators. Our government was created so Americans would have “a government of the people, by the people and for the people.”
