Check out US Term Limits, Inc. v. Thornton, 514 US 779 (1995). If you want the link to the oral arguments I can provide it.

What do y'all think about Congressional term limits? Should a State be able to impose them, or should Constitutional Amendment be the only way?

How ironic, I'm debating term limits at the Emory tournament, and US Term limits v. Thorton was the first source I consulted.

So we have both studied the same case, but you still didn't say whether you support Congressional term limits if imposed by a State. I am asking for you opinion, not for what the SC has said.

my opinion is the same as the courts, its an unconstitutional act that can only be done via constitutional amendment.

Carefully said, but did you ever think to consider the history of qualification and disqualification laws in the States at the time of Thornton, and, more importantly, at the time of the adoption of the Constitution? I think you will find them rather interesting to say the least.

Do I care? You know me well enough to realize I don't care about original intent.

Besides, the whole qualifications deal was settled in the Powell case.

On matters of constitutional law? yes. (see Marbury v. Madison, Fletcher v. Peck). They are an essential safeguard for minority rights.
