We are saddled with a large number of incompetent and corrupt Federal judges who don't enforce the Constitution they way they vowed to do. I want all District Federal Judges to have their appointments and behavior reviewed every 10 years by a Senate Committee and the bad ones removed from the bench.

We can open up the Constitutions for changes.

But only I get to decide on which changes.

The problem with that is the Senate is full of corrupt and incompetent politicians. Fat chance at having a senate committee qualified to do that.

Bah, ha, ha, ha. Haven't you noticed, the judiciary is controlled by partisan favoritism?

You have an abstract idea for an amendment, but you should try writing the actual directive to be considered. Others have suggested term-limits, anyway.

Anyway, none of that is going to correctly adjust the problem you are alluding to. The problem is the inadequacy of the three-part separation. Not enough separation.

That is an AWFUL idea. What if the senate is democrat held? All republican justices would be given a bad report.

I would add that lower court judges that are later overturned by the supreme court 3 times be removed from the bench

The US Congress is utterly corrupt and dysfunctional, so you want them to have even more power?

The issue is that the US federal government has far too much power, more than what was given it by the Constitution. The only way back is for states to rise up and regain their Constitutional powers by amending the Constitution themselves.

It has never been done but the provision was put there in case the US Federal government became too corrupt and powerful.

Weewee on the People

The state legislatures vote on any Amendments; we don't. So quit pretending the Constitution is anything more than a ping-pong table for the political class.

Our Judges are supposed to be nonpartisan
The Judicial Branch is a check n the power of Congress and the Presidency
Our Senate is blatantly partisan, especially when it comes to appointing judges

The American People Are the Court's Punching Bag

What if SCROTUS is one of its Left Punch moods and overturns Conservative lower-courters?

If they are nonpartisan then why do the judges strike down Trump's travel ban as racist when they did not do it to Obama and are not doing it to Trump?

The notion that anyone is not partisan is insane.

The name of the game is win office and then appoint your stooges and the one with the most stooges wins.

But democrats want to change the rules when they don't win office enough to appoint those stooges by packing the courts like FDR had wet dreams about.

That is the laughable and criminal.

The Courts did not strike down Trumps travel ban as racist
Before it went to court, Trump rewrote it to apply to countries not to religions
