IS there a sane way of controlling these immoral idiot judicial activists and lawyers?
I would prefer the power of RECALL & IMPEACHMENT over simply adding a new RESTRICTIVE "law" on liberties.
My personal opinion? declare that within 365 days, ALL laws other than the basic Constitution of Arkansas (or better yet, the USA) will be null and void. PERIOD!
That would give the poiticians one year to figure out what really is important and to realize that their very livelihood is at stake!
Yes, the best way would be to throw out the unconstitutional law in Arkansas that says candidates for Judicial positions CANNOT make any statements about where the would stand on any issue or case. We elect our judges, but there is no way that is an informed choice. For example in this last election that elitist twit Collins Kilgore (who wrote the horrendous original Lakeview decision) ran commercials saying he "interprets the law, not makes it". By law, his opponent could not get on the radio and say, "He DOES make up the law, look at his lakeview ruling!".
We should change that law, heat up judicial campaigns, and then let an INFORMED public toss out the elitists.
I advocate adding an additional check-n-balance to the Constitution (and any state Constitution). Create a way for the legislative and executive branches to join together to overrule the judicial branch. It would be something like a vote of both houses (in bicameral states) issued in conjunction with an executive order shall vacate a judicial ruling. Put a statute of limitations on the law so that you can't go back to 1778 and vacate a ruling from then. Make the vote of the legislature a supermajority if necessary and then put it in the Constitution.
