How is it the same?
Well, being a Justice on a state supreme court my role isn't that different from an elected official; other than I was appointed by a Republican Governor and not the people.My role is the same because my branch of government has the power to check other branches of elected government
Do you think judges should be elected? Explain why or why not.
I think that judges shouldn't be elected because my power comes from the Constitution and have the people vote for me is hypocritical to how the founding fathers organized the court system.
What is judicial review?
Judicial review is the power of federal courts to review laws of Congress and acts of the executive branch in light of the Constitution, with the possibility that they will rule them unconstitutional.
