The need for term limits is less of an issue if the 17th Amendment is repealed and the states once again have direct representation rather than the corrupt crap we have allowed since Senators became popularly elected. Now, Senators are the subject of national debate rather than the direct representation of each state legislature. It also becomes far too expensive to influence a Senator if his tenure rests on the approval of the elected members of an entire state legislature. Popular election of Senators just made them that much easier to buy. This is just one of the checks and balances our Founders put in place that we have removed in our "infinite wisdom".
