it is always interesting to hear the 'conservative' talking points when a decision goes against they POV. 'Unaccountable' judges is always a good one trotted out when the Court strikes down all or part of a law as UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Yet that is false, most state judges stand for election, it is the way here in Oklahoma. ALL Judges can be removed from office but it isn't easy. Nor should it be. What is most laughable is the 'conservatives' have had more years to appoint these 'unaccountable' judges than the liberals have. Yet of course any ruling against the right wing agenda gets lambasted as unaccountable judges!
There is a most excellent reason the check of Judicial Review was part of the Constitution. Without a body to decide if a law, new or old, passes constitutional muster mob rule would ruin the Republic.
Example- Desegregating the South. The majority of people in Mississippi or Alabama felt blacks should not be permitted in public buildings where whites lived/worked/learned unless they were there to clean-up. They felt it was perfectly legal to deny blacks a place in white-only restaurants, movie houses, hotels and make voting a much harder process for non-whites.
If left to the states and 'will of the people' who knows if desegregation would ever happen.
Courts struck down many separate but equal laws, 'sundown' laws, and voter tests. The Federal Government passed massive Equal Rights laws that were upheld in the courts and in some cases enforced by Federalized troops.
You can call that tyranny I suppose, but we supposedly have unalienable rights that are for all men, not just ones who like 'innies' and not 'outies'.
