In the UK, for example, the government would dissolve and the prime minister would call for an immediate general election, which would be held within three weeks. Yes, that quickly. With your fixed terms you do not have this benefit. You must limp on to the next overlong election cycle and then waste a whole year of execrable television and billions of dollars on it. This is a very expensive and not very flexible system of democracy that no one else wants to follow.
