People that don’t like how things are turning out end up gaming the system in order to get what they want through hateful means.
Look at what is happening with the Supreme Court right now. Democrats are talking right now about packing the court. This means that they want to keep adding seats and adding seats so they get an unfair advantage.
It’s sickening how they are trying to take advantage of this rule
Democrats are furious that President Trump may get a third nominee confirmed to the Supreme Court during his first term as president.
In response to the very real threat that Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s replacement could be a pro-life conservative, many on the left are talking about packing the Supreme Court with additional justices if Joe Biden wins next month’s election.
Not Biden or his running mate Kamala Harris, mind you — both of them have refused to answer whether they support court-packing.
Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, on the other hand, supports a plan that would protect the Supreme Court and freeze the number of justices at nine: a constitutional amendment.
“I think that’s a good idea. The number of justices is not set in the Constitution. It’s set by Congress,” Cruz told the Washington Examiner.
“We’ve had the number nine for 150 years. It is a number that works well, that provides stability and helps insulate the court from being overly politicized.”
Cruz also said he would support a legislative effort to freeze the number of Supreme Court justices.
This isn’t a bad idea. The judiciary is supposed to provide a check on the other two branches. In Federalist Paper No. 78, Alexander Hamilton wrote that the judiciary should be the weakest branch, merely providing judgment and relying on the executive and legislative branches to uphold its judgments.
In recent decades, however, the Supreme Court (as well as lower courts across the country) has become an activist court, where judges often inject their own ideologies to legislate from the bench.
