That's caused by voting. Voting should handle it. If it doesn't then it's the people's fault.
Another thing is get rid of pensions for them. Including the Presidential branch.
Also the hope is that by doing this you force these politicians live with the laws they enact instead of being immune from them because they spend decades at times in office. Outside of the SCOTUS, I think all politicians should be subject to term limits.
Well, this is a good point. Or they could care less about what they pass, if its something that won't affect them privately, because they won't be running again.
As for the SC, those judges can be impeached and for the same reasons as any other official or "high crimes and misdemeanors" which does not mean crimes and misdemeanors under criminal law alone. How about for trashing the Constitution? How about taking out the Progressives and Roberts for rewriting Obamacare as a tax, when that point was not argued in the court ( except for a last minute toss in by Obama's side). Not being able to argue or defend it as a tax, removed the whole Origination clause from being examined or discussed. This applies for a tax. The bill did not originate in the House but the Senate. It has to originate in the House if it's a tax.
Bill Belichick learned to film signals of opponents from the former Chiefs, and Charger's coach Schottenheimer. Others like Edwards, Johnson and Cowher did too. They learned from the CHEATS and CHEATERS who still couldn't win.
