A little reminder what’s at stake in 2020

“These leading Democrats also warned that if the justices proceed to issue a pro-Second Amendment ruling, and if Democrats win the White House and the Senate in 2020, then they will fundamentally remake the High Court.

The liberal senators warn that “a growing majority of Americans believes this Court is motivated mainly by politics,” accusing the justices of issuing rulings through “bare partisan majorities.”

The Democrat senators – one of whom is running for president – told the Court to either “heal itself” or be “restructured” if Democrats take power.“

They are not wrong. Almost half of the court is motivated by politics, namely leftist idealism.... of course they want to make it 100%

If they want to get rid of Justices who rule via politics, they should make sure only originalist Justices are appointed. Boom. Solved.

To be fair...wouldn't conservatives want to stack the court with conservative justices? The difference is conservatives want justices who respect the Constitution and work within the law...liberals want to stack the court to change the Constitution to effect changes without going through the proper procedure...the Amendment process.

One's perspective depends on whose ox is being gored...nothing new.

I want Justices who understand, honor, and respect the Constitution... not ones who will favor Democrat policies nor Republican polices.

I’m not aware of any conservatives advocating court packing, but I could be wrong.

Conservatives would want textualists/originalists as all 9.

While not discussed in this particular article, the dems weren’t talking about just “stacking the court”, they were talking about increasing the number of judges on the SCOTUS to dilute the effect of Trump’s nominees. I read two articles on it yesterday. One said that even RBG thought nine was the proper number.

Horrifying, no matter which side suggests it.

Indeed. This is a boundary in my mind, very dangerous ground when we see things like this even being suggested.....desperate attempts to exert uncontested power.

Their ongoing fury at not getting Hillary elected is just pure poison they can't get out of their system. But don't forget that even Hillary - when she was confident she'd be coronated - told a reporter that she knew she'd have trouble getting her agenda through a divided congress, and that she was anxious to seat Supreme Court justices based on life experiences and demographics, hoping to avoid any actual deep judicial background, so she could work on her legislative agenda that way, instead. Meaning: aspiring to treat the SCOTUS like a politicized mini-legislature is not a new thing for the left. The difference is that now they're talking about it out load and actually threatening it, instead of trying to sneak it in.

I'm afraid that we are in a golden age of firearm ownership in this country. IMHO, rights will evaporate to virtually nil over the next 20 to 50 years.
