    Activism, and cultural shifts.

    So, fine. But let the activists stay in their own damn states. Alabama wants nothing to do with you, and it will only come back to bite you.

    A change which would require a constitutional amendment. >.<

    Although impeachment already exists with a threshold similar to what you describe.

    Sounds more like right-wing authoritarian to me.

    Sometimes I change my "lean" to the exact opposite, just for fun. It's interesting to see the difference in the responses you get.

    I feel the same about "undisclosed." People sometimes act like they've discovered some major scandal and point out that I'm liberal. Why are you hiding behind undisclosed, deuce?

    I don't know about you, I'm just too lazy to do anything with my profile.....

    re supreme court term limits - one popular proposal is 18 years
    Running the Numbers on Supreme Court Term Limits | Brennan Center for Justice

    The proposals vary, but the best loved seems to be for staggered 18-year terms. At the end of the term, the Justice would take senior status. The nine junior Justices would comprise the “deciding” portion of the Court. Each President would get two appointments every term.

    Which, unlike SCOTUS, was the correct call.

    so lower judges are not elected in the state?

    Ficticious writings? Hmmmm

    Show me where I'm wrong where gay marriage was legal 20 years ago. This country WAS founded on Judeo-Christian values, no doubt about that.
    I can't help if the uber liberal values of this country are morphing our country to something it once wasn't.

    Oh yeah.....I'm not homophobic as liberals like to label those who live believing in the Bible. It's just the belief that a marriage is between a Man and Woman as stated in the Bible.

    But why does that belief have to translate into denying other people the right to marry the person they want? Why is your moral disapproval enough to restrict individual liberty?

    So you think the governor is in charge of the bar association, or federal courts that will give out contempt orders, or lawsuits filed in federal court?

    Actually the governor has no authority whatsoever in this matter, that i can think of, except to stand in front of a probate office like george wallace and wait for national guard to show up
