    Not sure about this. Sounds like one branch telling the other branch what to do. However, let us go in circles. How are these guys/gals elected? Or are they appointed? Hmmmm..... If appointed, then who elects the appointees? If they are appointed, then should we can them or break the circuit up because they make decisions contrary to what "we" think? What if the republicans were a minority? Should we allow the dems (doms) to change the makeup of the federal circuit?

    I posted a topic on this in another thread, however, as can be seen, this is a hot topic subject. It is not easily fixed, nor is it easily held to to the same standard.

    All the Federal courts are regulated by the Legislative branch of the government per Article III of the Constitution. It is Congress that determines if there are federal courts, how many levels, how many justices on each court, how many districts, etc. The only thing Congress doesn't have power of is the power to terminate the existance of the Supreme Court. However, they do have the ability to determine how many justices sit on that court.

    It's about time this nation learned that it is the people that govern and not appointed judges. BTW to answer your appointment question the President of the United States appoints all Federal judges with the Senate advise and consent. Hence, why we have the issue with the illegal fillibuster of judges in the Senate right now. Democrats are trying to prevent the Senate from fulfilling their responsibility to advice and consent to the judges the President appoints.
