    He has obstructed the Administration of Justice by refusing his Assent to Laws for establishing Judiciary Powers.

    He has made Judges dependent on his Will alone for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

    Well, you can obstruct the administration of justice using king george's method, or you can do it by the method used today - just don't allow nominated judges to get a confirmation vote in the senate.

    And where judges are elected, such as at the state level, the amount of campaign elections is a better leash on a candidate than yanking on their paycheck during their time on the bench. After all, they DO want to get re-elected to that bench and they DO want to get support for a campaign for a higher court than where they are. So political dependence is as sure of a corrupter of judges today as king george was back in the day.

    Now get yourself a song to sing, and sing it till you're done.
