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.

    Scalia should step down foir being an activist judge. LOL ... :D

    More hypocrisy.

    What Scalia said is simply a fact. You will notice he did not endorse the idea.
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.
