Chief bureaucrat of the US Supreme Court John Roberts “pleads for higher judicial salaries.” How can you blame him? Having a permanent job until death with virtually zero chance of ever being impeached is sooo haaard. Why would anyone ever accept such a job?
Of course, judges are just lawyers with robes who most of the time are little more than agents and enforcers of the state. Federal judges enjoy life terms.
Over the years, many American partisans of freedom have known this and have demanded that judges face election. They’ve also pointed out that the idea of an “independent judiciary” is one of the biggest lies ever foisted upon the American public.11:39 pm on December 31, 2008 Email Ryan McMaken
