The idea behind the lifelong appointment of Supreme Court Justices was to keep them out of the political fray as much as possible.

Do we then change the Supreme Court system of appointment to a democratic election or continue to leave it in the hands of the president and senate. Either way, if terms are established and term limits imposed, the system of judicial review risks becoming as much a farce as our Legislative and Executive branches are now.
