judges have a severe tendency to egomania.
For example, when a ussc judge is asked about “repecting stare decisis” (prior cases); nominees give a meaningless yes. meaningless because the USSC is the one court that can TOTALY IGNORE prior cases.
Judges will make a rogue ruling because the KNOW not everyone can afford the whithering expense of an appeal. Appeals drag on and consume and destroy lives, bankrupt the innocent, and foster slap suits.
