In case you didn't know ... McCain had a career prior to becoming a US Senator. Your so-called 12-year term would be only 6.5 years longer than McCain spent as a POW.
The nation is bigger than any one person.
Mc Caoin has made politics a career after his military service, and while he is a fine man many fine men have become corrupted with Washington and power.
For the good of the whole, we could lose some good public servants; but it is obvious that our system isn't working.
After FDR people came to realize the danger in letting a POTUS serve over 12 years. Now it's becoming obvious that when a man like Reid can stop legislation cold, or a Pelosi or a Boehner can wield enormous power like they do; we need to limit their terms.
We have recently seen 100 year old Senators. Mc Cain is approaching 80 and his best days were stolen from him in service to our nation. I am grateful for his service as well as all the service our veterans have given us, but the people's business is not being done.
Our system is broken.
