Term limits for the Presidency are very current since they were devised because of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's four terms. Now, a President is only allowed two terms or a maximum of ten years in office. This issue is pretty much solved now but remains as an issue that is still debated even today. Those who support the Twenty-second Amendment say, "What if a bad President is in office and has no competitors in the election? He needs to be gotten rid of." Opponents say, "What if he's a good President? Why should a good man be removed from office if he's doing the country good?"
