Representation

From Uniting Amendment
Jump to: navigation, search

In a world where innovation cycles are measured in weeks and technology allows citizens to make their voices heard almost instantly, terms of office that are two, four and six years are out of place. The current draft of the Uniting Amendment sets terms at one year for both Senators and Representatives, and limits a person to serving three terms. The term and limit for President remains unchanged at two terms of four years each, however, the Amendment makes it a little easier to remove a President from office. So the maximum time someone may serve with Congress is six years, or eight as president. There is also a cap on the total number of years that a person may be employed by the government, which includes office-holders. That cap is ten years. (A person may voluntarilly contribute to the government after that, but they can't be employed or hold an official position.)

Shorter terms with term limits help the government to more closely reflect the will of the people.
