I agree with Thomas Sowell who writes: "The time is also long overdue to re-examine lifetime appointments of judges, which allows them to act like little tin gods, at the expense of our freedom and the country's elected government."

If we're going to amend the Constitution, lets amend that lifetime appointment to Federal benches. Let's give U S Supreme Court judges five years or so on the bench by appointment by Congress, and then force them all to be elected to continue. The same with other Federal judges in various jurisdictions.

Others might put a limit on service, forcing retirement after so many years. That's not my agenda, but I wouldn't hate it if a majority likes it. In any event, something must be done.
