Who Needs Judges? Progressives Discover the Virtues of Democracy!

Doug Bandow, The American Spectator

Left-wing activists are most frustrated because the American people continue to resist plans for a socialist, gender-free, PC paradise. Democrats fear that in the future they will be unable to rely on the courts to impose policies resisted by the American people. The only way to depoliticize the courts is to stop demanding that they decide political and partisan rather than legal and constitutional disputes. If the Democratic Party wants to expand state power, it should strive to convince the American people. And if Democrats want to end constitutional restrictions on expansive government, they should amend the Constitution. Not use judges to subvert the legal order.
