    guys, is the question "a political, not a judicial institution" similar to "the power of the supreme court can't be justified in a democracy"?

    For example, could you write about the fact that the judiciary has certain powers which can be seen as undemocratic/too political?

    Below are some Essay plans I've done (still doing the 45 mark plans for unit 3 so not finished the document), not all of them are amazing because some questions are disgusting.

    I also put together a document of examples, it's not all the examples you need to know but a lot of those ones are recent.

    I only have Unit 3 stuff right now, I'm still working on my unit 4 ones, but seeing as unit 3 is sooner I've done a lot more.

    I'll post some unit 4 stuff when I've done a bit more of it
    These were the most helpful resources for unit 3, thank you so much! Do you have any for unit 4?

    - It would be things like how justices are nominated by the President who is obvs a political figure.
    - Appointments go through the senate - political
    - Reflecting the ideology of those who nominated them.
    - Polarisation.
    - Social issues going through SC rather than constitutional ones = political decision.
    - SC legislating = political

    Then you would go on to how it's judicial...

    Was the wording of the party decline question assess the arguments in favour? I thought it was just something like outline and so I only wrote the arguments for party decline.

    Has anyone got any predictions for 4C?

    I'm guessing
    Constitution: federalism
    Congress: either local/ national factors or checks and balances
    Presidency: lame duck

    Assess the arguments of the theory for party decline.

    I think it was this.

    #1) "A political, not a judicial institution"
    => Focus should be on whether the Supreme Court is political or not


    #2) "The power of the Supreme Court can't be justified in a Democracy"
    => Focus should be on whether the Supreme Court are democratic or not

    I just wrote 3 of the arguments that were in the textbook, I said about losing control of nominations, rise in split-ticket and independent voting and the rise of new media which has negated the role that party's played in communicating between voters and members of Congress. Didn't write anything about party renewal because I didn't realise you had to.

    Same for me I'm sure it was the type where you just describe the arguments for one side but I guess maybe it was assess.

    What are some reasons for why the VP is not powerful/has not got an important role?
    Also does anyone have any examples of where members of Congress clearly took into account local issues in their state/congressional district over their political party?
    Thank you x

    Would that be examples of pork-barrel politics?
