There’s Nothing Democratic About the Appointment of Supreme Court Justices

One person choosing them and 100 people putting their ‘stamp of approval’ on them does not a democracy make.

Justices should be elected just like other public officials and they should have term limits.  That would be democratic.  The current method is tyranny.

But then again, everything about our system, with its two parties (and no others in practice) and its super wealthy politicians on the national level is purely an oligarchy.

We don’t live in a democracy.  And that needs to change.  Because at present our choices can be boiled down thusly:  would you rather eat a bowl of maggots or a bowl of dog vomit?  Those are your only choices in American politics at present.
