Should the Supreme Court have lifetime appointments?

miller3317
srhelsel609

The Supreme Court Justices, when appointed, are offered a lifetime appointment. This should not be the case. The Constitution does not state "lifetime appointments." but rather cites maintaining "good behaviour". "Good"? I strongly disagree with this. Where's the rationale for this indefiniteness? If the argument is to disassociate politics from the judicial branch, then fine, this can still be done with an appointment of 25 years or even less. Lifetime appointments should be disallowed....

Youth Suffrage? should we lower the voting age.

srhelsel609
ExplosiveDebate

The right to vote is a injustice to just not only me, but to future generations of citizens. We are all citizens, we all live and work here, why as teens are denied the most important civil right to our democracy. Youth Suffrage or lowering the voting age to 16-17 is a issue that is sidelined by the media and the government. But I have a voice, and want to use it. Why in the home of the free, we are still being looked down as dumb uneducated teens? We are more inform than half of voters. We pay...

However, I am arguing that we should not increase the minimum wage any higher then it already is on a federal basis. This comes from the fact that Seattle, NYC, LA, and Chicago have all raised their minimum wages to an exorbitant amount, which will eventually end up in los...
