Having constructed an extremely difficult and arduous task for Representative's, and Presidents, the Founders never envisioned a career politician much less a bi-cameral set of political parties. Sadly, both have been corrosive to the intended function of government. especially on the Federal level.

Men of stature and age would serve their nation wisely in their latter years. That was the assumption. Their lifespan cutting short any empirical aspirations. It is why they set a minimum age for most elected posts. Pay was low. And even short distances were obstacles to managing a cohesive private life. Most had to return to private life quickly or the family and fortunes would suffer.

I would say term limits were least on their minds as a futuristic problem as they constructed a minimal control government.

But a problem it has become. I would suggest amendments to limit terms might pass. But the abolition of the two party system (which has no constitutional foundations whatsoever) is more than unlikely. Even if one of the major parties was to fail and evaporate, a second major affiliation would likely emerge. American voters seem to side with "them" or against "them."
