Default About the Supreme Court...

Am I the only one who thinks the way Supreme Court Judges are chosen is lame?..I mean...The president picks them..And as long as they can stand through a Congress hearing without fucking up..They're usually in. These men and women decide the biggest cases in our nation..And I think there should be more to it than just a president picking ones that will carry out their agenda. I propose the people elect the Justices. Justices should have to run like presidents every 4 years. I believe the people have the right to decide what people they want deciding the biggest cases in the country. To have only the president and congress decide is not what I think is proper in a democracy. The president would only be able to nominate and put in another judge in case of a current judge's retirement/death.


Any thoughts on this?

The way the Supreme Court Justices are picked is fine. It's actually one of the few political processes that isn't completely fucked up.

And Senate Confirmation isn't the picnic you seem to think it is.

I mean I don't have any major problems with it..I just would like to see the actual common man have more of a voice with who gets the spots somehow.

Yeah...but you can't really trust the common man...which is why the President is chosen by the Electoral College and not the popular vote...or at least that is supposed to have been the "Founding Fathers'" mindset when they wrote the Constitution.

The thing is that yeah...the President hand picks the nominee and then the Senate confirms him/her...but once that's done, they're there for life. They're subject to noone else's opinion but their own. Some guys may be Liberal or Conservative, but not on every issue.

That somewhat insulates the office from Special Interest, Lobbyists and the brainwashing of the Media. The thing is to find someone who as a Supreme Court Justice, is competent enough to interpret the law and then rule on it as impartially as possible.

In all honesty, I wouldn't trust a position that important to a Popular Vote either. I mean look at New York. The people of this state elected Hillary Clinton Senator...not even Congresswoman or Rep but Senator. Her only "political experience" prior to being elected to the second highest sort of office in America was in being the doormat for all of Bill's whores.

This state has a number of problems that are close to catastrophic...our ridiculously inadequate Public Schools not the least of them...and we elect a Senator who as much as told us that she's using the office for nothing more than a stepping stone to the Presidency.

Like Hillary or not...you can't disagree the level of idiocy that went into this second most bluest state giving that job to her.

Quite honestly I'm ashamed. At the time I was okay with it because Chuck Schumer used to bust his ass for this state...but as of the last three years, the only thing he's busted his ass doing is carrying on with petty partisan bullshit, debating useless information in impotent committees.

The whole system's fucking ridiculous. One of the reasons I didn't go PoliSci as a major in college is because the more and more I studied American Goverment and how it works, the angrier and angrier I got about it.

But I just happen to think that the process for appointing SC Justices is one of the few things that works and works well.

Just my opinion.

Late.

I agree..The American voting system has become a sham. Electronic voting machines are a joke and should be abolished. There should be a paper trail for every fucking vote cast. Period. Way too many fuck up's. I'm voting for the first time this year and I can't trust that my vote is counted correctly and that should NEVER happen in America.
