22. The real issue is life time appointments. It was a major mistake.

The Founding Fathers put fair too much faith that the justices would be honorable men and women. For them honor was a sacred mark of a person. It has been a trust that has been shown to have been misplaced in far too many instances. Each and every decision is being judged not on the objective rule of law, but far too many times in recent times solely on party affiliation. The life time appointment completely insulates them from being held accountable for obviously personal and party affiliations and beliefs that have no Constitutional foundation. It is extremely difficult to remove them by impeachment since that decision can be also be determined by party affiliation.

I would also contend that this presidency and the attempts of the Republicans Party over the last fifty years to transform the presidency into an virtual authoritarian dictatorship has again demonstrated that the office is can be abused by unprincipled people such as exemplified by the present immoral, virtually treasonous first class scoundrel. His tenure has demonstrated that there is a critical need to legislate firm checks to prevent the abuses that have been perpetrated by every Republican president since Nixon. Each Republican administration has been rocked by scandals that have had a devastating affect on government. The citizens elect representatives to conduct the affairs of office for the benefit of the nation not to be compelled to devote their efforts to investigations of criminals parading as patriots while engaged in endless illegal activities. The Republican Party has far more in common with Mafia gangsters than honest upright citizens. The citizens deserve far more than a government is perpetual chaos.
