DEAR EDITOR:

Am I missing something about how our judicial system is to work? I thought judges are to preside over trials to ensure that fair and impartial judicial decorum is upheld.

Judges are also to rule on civil cases without a trial based upon the facts submitted to them. I do not understand how a non-elected judge can strike down state and even federal laws or overrule a sitting president’s direct orders.

What is the purpose or good of laws enacted by lawfully elected representatives if some activist judge says they don’t like the law? Do we the people have control over ourselves or do activist judges?

I don’t know what you call it but it sure isn’t democracy.
