Dr. Stearns on judge-made law and vetting nominees for Supreme Court honestly

Dr. Stearns has expertly said, that the Supreme Court does make policy, law and are not neutral umpires. However, there is another alternative to vetting nominees. When the justices diagree five to four or six to three, the whole thing is sent to the American people as a plebiscite.

The factor approach provides a useful way in which cases and precedents can be framed.

I do note that Dr. Maxwell Stearns co-authored "Public Choice Concepts and Applications to Law" which I am putting on the queue for a Thoughtful Thursday post.
