just as it is with free markets
But tThe problem of a "lottery system" for judge nominations seems one we could deal with better than we currently do

The problem is in the legislative branch.  Everybody wants a shortcut to implementing their agendas, and getting the court to rule that forcing people to do X or forbidding them to do Y is square with constitutional rules that limit their power to do so means that when the shoe is on the other foot forbidding X and forcing Y is cool too. Short-sightedness.

Political parties should have no constitutional role in government. They are private clubs, and granting them any powers over anyone else disenfranchises anyone who isn't in those clubs.

i was referring to changing the current nomination system for supreme court, appeals court, and district judges.

"term limits for judges, and a schedule that allows each president to nominate a judge or two"—yeah, not exactly like a typical political appointee, more like a federal commission, like the FCC. Not seeing what term limits accomplish, other than churning the membership. The original intent was to isolate the court from the political winds, and this lets them blow thru the court regularly.

It's not the worst idea I've heard for reforming the court (adding justices to pack the court is) but I'm not seeing it as much of an improvement.

Read a few of the items below and decide if you want judges to become ordinary political appointees.

From The Hill today, regarding Trump’s performance on ABC town hall in Pennsylvania:

He was also pressured by the ABC anchor on his promise to replace ObamaCare and on his pledge to preserve health insurance for those with preexisting conditions.

Trump has repeatedly promised to unveil a new health care plan — a tweet from The Washington Post noted he has done so 16 times over the past three years — but no such plan has emerged.

Trump told Stephanopoulos “I have it already” but provided no details.


It’s coming, it’s coming! A great plan! You’re going to love it!


This charlatan has been promising the unveiling of his great health care plan since the 2016 campaign. Then, he promised it would be unveiled in the first couple weeks of taking office. Then, he said they were just dotting the eyes and crossing the tees. Now, a few months short of the end of his 4-year term, he is still touting his great plan that is now ready. This is like Lucy holding the football for Charlie Brown to kick and each time pulling it away so he falls on his ass. For those of you playing at home, in this scenario, Trump is Lucy and the public is Charlie Brown.


If he has a great health care plan ready to go, why would he not have implemented it, or at least disclosed it? Rhetorical question.



 

What got me was that Trump was openly lying to people, not only while talking to them but also while he was live on national TV. He wasn’t embarrassed or uncomfortable. He just made up crap on the spot and kept babbling away. 

Tump just talks his own version of reality into existence even if it has nothing to do with facts. And we’re supposed to be OK with his BS even though we’re closing in on 200,000 deaths and dealing with a crashed economy and his unending incompetence.
