Electing the Supreme Court

April 21st, 2008

After the recent Wisconsin Supreme Court election, viagra buy case there has been a lot of talk about switching to appointing Supreme Court Justices in Wisconsin.

I think this is a bad idea.

In fact, cialis buy mind I propose we stop appointing Supreme Court Justices at the national level and start electing justices to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Since the Court seems hellbent on acting like a super legislature, treat they should have to run for office just like every other politician.

And disconnecting Supreme Court Justices from the office of the President would let us start voting for candidates on issues other than who they might appoint to the court (an action that usually has much father reaching and longer lasting consequences than almost anything else a President can do in office).

I say more democracy, not less. Let’s keep electing Wisconsin Supreme Court justices and start electing U.S. ones, too.
