Poor Ted Cruz. The Texas senator and one of a slew of Republican Presidential candidates is apocalyptic at the very thought that the United States Supreme Court voted that marriage between two people of the same sex is legal in all 50 states.
In his overwhelming grief, however, he made a statement that struck home and actually one that I have long advocated.
I could not believe I would ever be able to agree with anything emanating from the mouth of Ted Cruz, but never say never. He suggests that judges should be voted into office, such as the Executive and Legislative branches of our country, and he's right.
Originally, the theory of a lifetime appointment was in order to avoid "retribution" incurred by either of the other two branches, and the sole manner in which a Judge could maintain his seat was to merely exhibit "good behavior." Such nonsense.
I stand with Ted Cruz (embarrassingly) in the idea that our SCOTUS should represent the people of today's country, not old tenants with which the judges were originally appointed.
