Conservatives would want textualists/originalists as all 9.

I'm not saying any conservatives are advocating court packing but I do believe conservatives want more conservative justices on the court...essentially the same thing. The Dems are openly saying they want to stack or add justices to essentially emasculate the conservatives present now on the court.

One's perspective depends on whose ox is being gored...nothing new.
What is stacking? We are talking about "packing" -- increasing the number of justices when a Democrat holds the white house say going from nine to eleven justices, allowing them to alter a court that is five conservatives and four liberals to five conservatives and six liberals

There have been occasions where the GOP has had presidency and both houses and had very liberal SCOTUS and not suggested packing by restructuring the court. The Democrats have tried it before and are threatening to do it again.

Not at all true, and not "essentially" or in any way "the same thing."

The system, the fair playing rules are the President AND the Senate must totally agree, and then a justice is put in to replace one that dies or retires. if they don't compromise and agree the justice is not replaced until they do.

What the Democrats are saying is that if they control congress they are going to ADD Democrats to the court without anyone retiring.

This is not the first time that Democrats wanted to do this. FDR was trying to get laws passed and was constantly blocked by the SCOTUS. He wanted to add justices to get what he wanted.
