They appoint judges here. Everything from traffic court on up. I assure you, it doesn't take special interests out of it. What you get are a bunch of guys that are really good at fund raising for one side or the other becoming judges.

And these jackasses are jackasses for life. Stick to electing judges, at least if the guy is a turd, you have a chance of getting rid of him.

Exactly ... the gov't shouldn't be appointing ANYONE. In MA we see the results of these appointments every day. :sick: Child molesters routinely go free because a judge deems him "a human being, like the rest of us", & the people can't do a damn thing about it. It invites corruption, & one-party politics as an added "bonus". :roll:

You guys DO NOT want to become MA .... trust me on that one! Don't let it happen!!

Rendell reminds me of a shady car sales man. I wouldnt trust him enough to buy a car from him, so i certinally dont trust him enough to buy this idea either.

I love the title of this thread! I've always believed that if your vote mattered, they wouldn't let you cast it.
