Weren’t presidential term limits first instituted in the USA in 1951? If for about 180 years the USA was able to avoid “long-term Bonapartist/presidentialist rule”, wouldn’t it seem likely that Colombia, Venezuela, and Honduras would be able to do the same? Or is there something in these countries that makes them more likely to fall into a “long-term Bonapartist/presidentialist rule”? Maybe the water?
Obviously I am making a joke, the history of the countries mentioned above and just about every other country in the Americas (USA and Canada excepted), does mean that limits are probably a good idea.
