THIS WILL BE INTERESTING!!
I believe that balancing the Constitutional view and thoughts and practices by
the Congress and Executive Branch is specifically what the Supreme Court is for
...!?ACCORDING TO THE CONSTITUTION?!....What we need to consider in my honest opinion is Amendding the 22nd or 25th Amendment
and the Third Article of the Constitution to:
1. Add term limits of twenty five years for the Supreme Court
with possibly an exception for the Chief Justice
(while we're at it lets slap a 25 year term limit on Congress too.)
2. Rotate the position of Chief Justice for five to ten year terms
based on seniority with a primary deliberation privilege cap at about 70
3. Increase the amount of Justices from 9 to at least 11 if not 15
This will gain a true consensus body of the Common Sense interpretation
mixed with a diversified American experience not just a body of lawyers
trying to preserve their own agenda.
