"pointing to the proposed elimination of presidential term limits."

Anyone in the United States who takes up this argument needs to be reminded that 
there were no Presidential term limits in the United States for 175 years, from 
1776 to 1951, when the 22nd Amendment was ratified. France and Italy still have 
no term limits for Presidents, according to 
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_political_term_limits.

On a philosophical rather than historical level, term limits are completely 
undemocratic.
