Over at Townhall, a defense of term limits. Read the column (in which I reference a conference I attended yesterday, see image at right), and come back here.

- U.S. Term Limits v. Thornton is the Supreme Court case that badly decided federal limits, and limited the term-limits movement, by denying to the states the power to regulate the terms of their own representatives.
- The ballot initiative is explained, also, at Ballotpedia.
- Term limits remain overwhelmingly popular, as shown by a recent poll of Illinois voters.
