International Republican Union Regional Message Board
If people really want another candidate they can just vote for them.
You do have a good point let's scrap the idea. I was just trying to boost the activity in the region. We don't have to go ahead with the idea unless other nations want to.
Both sides have a good point, but I think the unhindered will of the people is our greatest safeguard against fascism. Vigilance against tyranny will do far more to secure freedom than the imagined safety of restrictions ever could.
I agree. We shouldn't restrict anything for the sake of some false security.
I'm not opposed to the idea of a term limit - provided the citizens of this region have the fortitude to enforce it, as with all checks and balances, of course.
If we do establish one - for either President or Senate, just throwing it out there - I think it should be greater than two terms (either that, or reset the limit once the nation who hit it is out of office, permitting them to run again next time). Otherwise, such a limit would run the risk of insulting a voting body that would regularly be denied the authority to vote for the candidates they like.
If we were to set term limits we should only do it for the President.
I'm not telling you to give others a turn mostly because there aren't many who would go for the president's spot and actually be active enough to fill it properly. But I do think that there has to be some limit to a political leader's term. It's not a president if he or she serves for life. That's a king! I'm just saying htere needs to be some sort of cap to a term i don't want to get another president I just think that there should be a limit.
If they're elected perpetually is that really still a king? If the people want a president to stay president why just kick him out for fairness? We don't need all these restrictions just for some phony feeling of safety. If we want a new president than we will elect one, plain and simple.
Wow! You can read minds! I was just about to write something very similar to what you said. But I completely agree!
People have a turn, or at least a chance, every time there's an election. But you've summed up our dilemma - sometimes there aren't enough volunteers. I can't even start Senate elections yet, because no one is running for the first two Seats, or challenging the latter three!
Imposing a limit on the Presidency - especially a two-term or one-term limit - may result in a power vacuum. Needless to say, that vacuum would need to be filled by the one nation here who, thanks to the mechanics of the game, has a lifetime position: me. Trust me, you'd prefer to have the same President over and over rather than having me fill in for him, but hopefully we'll never need to make that choice.
Besides, we do have a balance against continuous leadership: public approval. Among other things, the prosperity of this very region depends on how good a job people think I do as the founder. Elections are determined democratically - someone who is unpopular with the citizen body will likely lose if challenged. Each of you play an instrumental role in preventing corruption and encouraging good leadership just by being here and speaking your minds, and discussions like these are proof that liberty is important to you.
