    I agree:

    ""Any organization that wants judges to subscribe to a certain political party or certain value system or certain way of ruling to me threatens the independence of the judiciary," San Diego County's District Attorney Bonnie Dumanis said."

    The problem is, that very many liberal judges tend to make decisions based on their ideology. They'll say they dont, but lots of them do.

    I think they should ALL judge according to the law, and not legislate from the bench. That goes for conservatives as well.

    Wouldn't any judge subscribe to some sort of value system? And don't they already run as members of whichever political party is in favor at the moment?

    In addition, I think it sets a bad precedence to basically have our judges basically be similar to politicians in the aspect of pandering to specific organizations, etc. Nothing good can come up of it.

    Then get the State to change the law allowing Judges to be elected. Or shut the hell up. If these guys win that means the PEOPLE freely elected them as required by that States LAW. You don't like it? Change the law. I am past tired of listening to you leftoids trying to pervert the system when you lose or might lose.

    Nobody here claimed that. However, I think when someone considers themselves something first and a Judge second, it can never end well.
