But doesnt the president picks the judges? Giving him more or less 2/3 of the power.the president is only 1/3 of the democratic system, the house/senate create the bills for him to pass or vito, the judicial branch enforces the laws
Only the Supreme Court ones, and they need to be approved by Congress, I think.
We have that - take my word for it, it doesn't work. It just sucks a lot of dynamism out of the system.They should change it in the US so a president can sit an infinate ammount of terms. That way the presients will have to do everything to keep the peoples support all through thier terms.
But if you consider that many (nearly all) people know almost nothing about many things that are done. I mean do people want to send aid to "poor countryx"? Many might not even know it's needed or whats going on there. So what's he to do? Hold a poll for most issues? Maybe that is an idea, who knows.Sounds more like a dictatorship than a democratie to me (iirc he is elected, not?)
It's not what he thinks, it's what people from all over the country want, right?
Yes, I'm very often grateful for this blessing the judicial branch seems to have.Presidents can pick the judges, but it's often hard to tell how a judge will rule. When you get into the nitty gritty of the law it's surprising how often party lines don't matter.
And a lot of judges seem to have a liberterian streak in them anyway. It's all part of the checks and balances though. President nominates judges, Congress approves.
