I encourage you to read the following article. Like all of our institutions the Supreme Court is defined as operating one way but in reality it operates in a different way. The Supreme Court Appointment
Again, Americans are missing the point. The damage to the country by way of using belligerence to override the formal political process is more harmful than anything one judge sitting on the bench might do. Like all institutions the Supreme Court does not function the way it is popularly believed to operate. Supreme Court justices are politicians just as are the presidents who appoint them.
The institution of self government is failing in the United States. I wrote about this in 2008 after the TARP bill was passed over the loud objections of citizens in every state. Many bills are passed in that fashion. You will notice that when the formal political system generates an answer the elite doesn’t like, thugs are commissioned to impose their will on the public in an alternative way. That is a bigger threat to the country than the appointment of a single judge.
