You are taking my simple

You are taking my simple analogy too far. The important point is that deliberation on any important matter is best done by people who are specialists in that matter. Clearly you believe that government is something that is not well understood. This is because we have a few generalists considering matters instead of many specialists. I am not saying that specialists will know the answer to everything, just that they must inevitably be better than the generalists.

Limiting people to one term means that more people get the opportunity to influence policy; this conforms better the principal idea in democracy than representative democracy.
