You absolutely have the freedom to state your opinion. That freedom is given to you thanks to our Constitution.
Dutch Wrote: How can you stop corruption? I told you a million times start by adding lots of amendments to the Constitution to bring it into the 21st century; rewrite on how elections should be run "without" billions of money or "lobbying" (as they do in Europe) as well have only "votes" count.
Article V of our Constitution mandates it can only be changed one of two ways - 2/3 of both houses of Congress pass a resolution and 3/4 of the states ratify it or 2/3 of the participants in a constitutional convention pass a resolution and 3/4 of the states ratify it.
The Supreme Court ruled in Citizens United that corporations are people. The Supreme Court is the final arbiter in our country. The only remedy is to pass a Constitutional Amendment to overrule their decision or elect enough liberal justices to the court who are willing to overrule it.
The former is likelier than the latter because the Supreme Court rarely overturns its own decisions.

Tell that to the Notorious RBG.
I don't necessarily have a problem with term limits on federal judges, but that would also require a Constitutional Amendment. Article III, Section 1 is quite specific. They get to serve as long as they choose. A federal judge can only be removed if 218 Representatives and 67 Senators vote to remove them.
Dutch Wrote: All of this should be part of the Democratic platform; which they refuse to list this, because they love the Super Pac money flowing to them. Thus forget it!
I'd suggest it's not part of the Democratic Party platform because there's still some people in the Democratic Party who aren't snake oil salesmen that promise the world without being honest about how that world can be delivered.
What you're proposing would require multiple amendments to our Constitution, most of which certainly wouldn't pass in our current political environment. Yes, many European countries impose term limits on judges, but we don't live in a European country. We live here and we live with the Constitution we have.
