Rick Perry Wants to Amend the Constitution for Supreme Court Term Limits

Strict constitutionalists want to change everything about it

Texas’s creationist governor Rick Perry really doesn’t like the US Constitution very much; he has a long list of changes and amendments he wants to make, starting with term limits on Supreme Court justices.

Washington - Rick Perry, like other conservatives, has lots of complaints about the Supreme Court: The justices, he says, have meddled in social policy, stepped on state power and generally run amok.

One solution the governor embraces is to end lifetime tenure — a cornerstone of the Constitution, whose drafters worried far less about activist or senile judges than about meddling tyrants and political pressure.

This is just one more example of extreme right wing cognitive dissonance; they fetishize the Constitution almost as much as the Bible, but want to change its most basic tenets.
