"Judges have a difficult job. They must balance judicial independence with a respect for the primacy of the Legislature and the executive branch as policymakers. They must guard our individual rights, but not at the expense of our collective right to self-government. And perhaps their greatest challenge is to resist the urge to substitute their own values and policy preferences for those embodied in the law."

-- Florida Governor Jeb Bush
