A Real Term Limit

At the time that the Constitution was written, the average life expectancy was much lower than it is today. Because of this people had to mature much quicker than they do today. The writers of the constitution set the minimum age for a United States senator at age 30. They thought that age 30 was a good age for someone to have gained maturity, wisdom and time to build a stable character. Today’s 30 are not as mature as it was back then. Therefore, instead of term limits I propose we raise the minimum age to run for and hold public office. For example we should increase the minimum age for senator from 30 to 50 and for President from 35 to 55.
