If the American people are to decide who becomes the next Supreme Court justice then why don’t the people just vote for judges themselves instead of having the president nominate them? Heck, if we want the American people to decide the outcome of controversial issues then why have the Supreme Court? Maybe people should just vote on the issues on individually. If we truly want the American people to decide who will nominate the next justice then how about we have the American people actually vote for candidates and not just delegates and the electoral college. Or maybe the senate could just do their job instead of playing partisan politics.
