I support limiting the US President to one four year term. One and Done.
A President usually accomplishes all he can or wants to do in one term. The second term is just coasting.
The US decided to limit the Presidency to two terms in 1947. No restrictions were placed on the Vice President.
"Passed by Congress in 1947, and ratified by the states on February 27, 1951, the Twenty-Second Amendment limits an elected president to two terms in office, a total of eight years."
One four year term is more than long enough. A one term restriction would stop the debacle that we had on Jan 6, where the losing incumbent fought to maintain power.
By restricting our future Presidents to one term we may dampen the blood sport of the opposition party attacking the President all the time. Since the President can never run again, villifying him won't be so attractive. And perhaps we can return to patriotic Americans supporting our leader duing his four term, while trying to build support for their candidate for the future.
We should also limit the Vice President to one four year term, and restrict him or her from ever running for the VP or President again. This will help all Americans to support the VP without the incessant villification of the person. Since the VP cannot run for President they hopefully won't be a target.
The Vice President would change from being a younger less experienced peson to a more seasoned veteran who can't hope to be elected to the Presidency.
Our country is terribly divided now. We need to take steps to stop the incessant attacks on our President and Vice President. Since they will be done at the end of one four year term, never to run again, we can hope for a little less attack dog bickering.
Abortions have been declining in the US.

The recent Supreme Court decision will result in less abortion. Educated employed women will likely travel to States where abortion is legal. Unemployed poor women will have fewer abortions. More unwanted children will be born into poverty with related social problems.
"The effect of legalized abortion on crime (also the Donohue–Levitt hypothesis) is a controversial hypothesis about the reduction in crime in the decades following the legalization of abortion. Proponents argue that the availability of abortion resulted in fewer births of children at the highest risk of committing crime. The earliest research suggesting such an effect was a 1966 study in Sweden. In 2001, Steven Levitt of the University of Chicago and John Donohue of Yale University argued, citing their research and earlier studies, that children who are unwanted or whose parents cannot support them are likelier to become criminals. This idea was further popularized by its inclusion in the book Freakonomics, which Levitt co-wrote.
Critics have argued that Donohue and Levitt's methodologies are flawed and that no statistically significant relationship between abortion and later crime rates can be proven. Criticisms include the assumption in the Donohue-Levitt study that abortion rates increased substantially since the 1973 Supreme Court case Roe v. Wade; critics use census data to show that the changes in the overall abortion rate could not account for the decrease in crime claimed by the study's methodology (legal abortions had been permitted under limited circumstances in many states prior). Other critics state that the correlations between births and crime found by Donohue–Levitt do not adequately account for confounding factors such as reduced drug use, changes in demographics and population densities, or other contemporary cultural changes."
So we are entering into a long term controlled experiment. Some States will continue to permit abortions while others will eliminate it. If Donahue-Levitt are correct violent crime should increase in the States that eliminate abortion beginning in about 15 years.

We all know numerous people who are convinced that the 2020 election was stolen from President Trump. This is despite all the court cases made by the Trump campaign and others that found no fraud. And despite the Department of Justice investigations that showed minimal fraud.
The link below is from the Conservative Heritage Foundation. They publish all the legal cases about voter fraud. Take a look at their data base. Many of the cases are where local officials tried to increase their vote count to retain their jobs. There was voter fraud committed by both Democrats and Republicans. Voter fraud took place in numerous States, most of them not in the battleground States. And none of them would have gotten anywhere near the number needed to change the Presidential elections.
