Yeah, they had no idea whatsoever what a "lifetime" appointment would mean.<quoted text>
The Bill of Rights would just about be eliminated then.
The one thing our founders screwed up was lifelong SC nominations. They should be voted on like any other politician and have four year terms. Yeah, it seemed like a good idea at the time. But I think if the founders could look back and see what and how some of these decisions came down, they would go back in time if they could and redo the whole SC thing and make the Constitution less ambiguous. Maybe even color pictures for the libs.
Imagine what kind of country we would be living in today if we all lived by the words of the Constitution and the intent of our founders.
