An unelected SCOTUS decides elections.
None of us voted for Supreme Court justices. They’re nominated by the president. But they have influence on presidential elections, too. For example, the court’s ruling on ballot recounts in 2000 allowed George W. Bush to become president, even though the numbers are still inconclusive because studies haven’t been fully conducted.
Justices serve for life.
Not only do we not vote for them, but we’re stuck with Supreme Court justices for the remainder of their lifetimes. This makes the court more likely to be out of touch with the interests of the people.
They have the power to overrule demands.
Even if there’s a popular demand supported by people, the Supreme Court can overrule it if it pleases. This often happens when justices are influenced by opportunities for wealth and political gain.
They, generally, have the last word.
Times, needs, and people are always changing. The Supreme Court cannot competently make decisions that always reflect this. It’s undemocratic.
When “justice” is ruled by politics, not the people, we need to have more of a say in our own lives - and build a future where we can.
