Demand term limits for Supreme Court justices

Our Supreme Court is facing a crisis of accountability and legitimacy that threatens the very foundation of our democracy. In recent years, the Court has been plagued by a series of ethics scandals, revealing a system in which justices wield tremendous power for decades with little oversight. It's clear that the current system is broken and no longer serves the best interests of the American people.

It's time to take action and demand term limits for Supreme Court justices. One of the most critical reforms we can enact is to limit the terms of Supreme Court justices. By establishing 18-year terms and regularized appointments, we can ensure that justices do not remain on the bench indefinitely, insulated from public accountability.

Why is this important?

The need for term limits is urgent. Currently, justices serve unusually long terms, with some holding office for as long as 35 years. This unbounded tenure allows a single justice to shape the direction of the law for generations, without regard for the evolving views of the electorate. It's time to put an end to this undemocratic practice and ensure that our highest court remains accountable to the people it serves.

This issue goes beyond accountability—it’s about protecting our fundamental rights and freedoms. With every Supreme Court vacancy, monumental issues hang in the balance, from reproductive rights to voting rights to healthcare access.
