This complete separation of the judiciary from the enterprise of "representative government" might have some truth in those countries where judges neither make law themselves nor set aside the laws enacted by the legislature. It is not a true picture of the American system. Not only do state-court judges possess the power to "make" common law, but they have the immense power to shape the States' constitutions as well. See, e.g., Baker v. State, 170 Vt. 194, 744 A. 2d 864 (1999). Which is precisely why the election of state judges became popular.

I just posted the same thread WITHOUT the Huff link.

It wasn't moved, it was just deleted.

It was deleted because you guys can't handle the truth.

Thats right, stick your head in the sand while your party dies.

You are a mod. Why did it get moved when the Huff link was gone ?

Because it isn't "political news".

What Scalia said is simply a fact. You will notice he did not endorse the idea.
