That's even worse!

You're appointed a judge because of who you know - who you paid.
Fortunately for us, in the USA, we don't have a culture of an elite class who are simply "better" by accident of birth.

Campaign Budget? At least, despite that, we have a choice. It still can go wrong (like Clarence Thomas and others like him on the Supreme Court - but even they had to be approved by more than their best-buddy! The method can fail - but despite is friends, the people got rid of at least this piece of sh*t.

To think an appointment - with no voice of the people involved, even by proxy, is a better way is, let us say, "a dream of the poppy".
