I understand that the California effort was to amend the State constitution, but it seems to be that the precedent has been set that the will of judges supersedes that of the people and there is no way around them. If the court is not bound by a plebiscite, what is to keep them from declaring the result of an impeachment effort unconstitutional? Didn't Judge Kennedy justify a ruling on what he considered to be the ill will of opponents of homosexual marriage? Couldn't he and reflexive leftists on the court do the same thing? Once an elitist court decides it is no longer bound by the expressed will of the people the people have no secure their liberty.

SCOTUS Can. But keep in mind the history. California judges ruled a California defense of marriage act unconstitutional. That’s why California people voted in Prop 8. And once they did that, the California supreme court went along with it.
they couldn’t continue to claim it was unconstitutional when the people had just voted to change the constitution to make it constitutional.
And if you have the votes to change the constitution, you probably have the votes to impeach judges and justices if they get in your way.
