I think terms should be longer, in general, but I think no one should be allowed more than one go-round. Keeps the focus on getting as much good accomplished as possible while they're in office and less focus on getting their job re-upped. Elected office shouldn't be a career for anyone, if you ask me (unless you manage to go from one elected office to another, ie mayor to governor, governor to congress/senate, congress/senate to Pres).
"And politically correct is the worst term, not just because it’s dismissive, but because it narrows down the whole social justice spectrum to this idea that it’s about being polite instead of about dismantling the oppressive social structure of power.
Fun Fact: When you actively avoid being “PC,” you’re not being forward-thinking or unique. You’re buying into systems of oppression that have existed since before you were even born, and you’re keeping those systems in place."
