Because in the liberal mind, the Constitution is merely a guide; a 'living, breathing document that can be amended as to meaning in today's changing world." Yes, they really think this way.

Because they don't think the evil will turn on them once the evil is finished using them to concentrate power. Ask a liberal what happens once we have socialist healthcare, no private health insurance, they ask the government for care and the government says no. It's simply not a contingency they plan for. Ask them what happens after they get a government that can confiscate people's money, and it turns around and confiscates THEIR money.

The clintons are the perfect example. You get on board with evil, what happens when you're no longer useful? You wake up dead.

Hey, since justices can work from home, how about we just add every tax paying citizen to the court? At least it would return consent of the governed into the equation.

Why only Dems and Reps? Why can't other parties nominate judges?

And they are TEACHING it that way in colleges.

Many lawyers will tell you exactly what you just typed is correct....and they will say it with a straight face.

Scary.

So the design then is for RBG to pick her replacement before passing on. Or after the fact by a a bit of forgery?

It would not shock me in the slightest if the next liberal who inhabits the White House attempts to up the number of justices.

“What if there were five justices selected by Democrats, five justices selected by Republicans, and those ten then picked five more justices independent of those who chose the first ten?” he said.

“I think that’s an idea we should explore.”

You are foolish to believe that this WON’T happen if a Dim is elected!
It is the only way that they can quickly regain control of the SC and it appears to be constitutional.
If they win the Presidency, they are also likely to control both houses.

Constitution created the Supreme Court but no mention of how many judges. It has changed in the past. Last time in 1800's but FDR tried to up the count, but congress would not pass it. It needs to pass congress for it to happen

And if they did up the number of Supremes to 15 only to find that conservatives held an 8 to 7 majority, what then? Up it again to 19 or 21 until the liberals had control. If they don’t like the score, just move the goal posts.

This is the type of person the democrats look up to and believe is worthy to be President.
