Prior to (a) paying politicians a higher than living wage and (b) air conditioning we didn't need term limits because no one wanted to stay in office all that much. The original design fro Congress was to leave the farm/business for 2 or 3 months, go to a government city built on swamp, pass whatever laws were deemed necessary for the National Interest per the Constitution (paying attention to Amendments 8 & 10) then go home & forget about it until next year. Congress has two year terms so members didn't have to suffer absence from farm/business/family unduly.
