That is why it would have to be Constitutionally mandated through an amendment that will never happen. Congress critters will tell you there are term limits...they come when enough voters get fed up with them.

Mind you, this is not my POV....this is just the way the current system works and the justifications given for it.
Term limits would also bring about changes to those same archaic systems you brought up but it's a moot point. Even though POTUS campaigned, and others have campaigned on this issue, term limits won't happen because it's the Holy Grail of holding onto power.
