7. And "sounds good in theory" right back. What makes us think that judges know what's best

 

for the majority. Judges that may well be appointed or elected by the tyrannical minority.

Today tyranny of the majority is a long way off. I agree that too much power to the people might be dangerous, but again, we are a long way from that. Currently the majority have very little power.

Today the majority wants gay rights, more lenient marijuana laws, and money out of politics. But the majority has to rely on the Judicial Branch for these rights.
