Commenter “Old Guy” left this on the previous post:
The thing I worry about re: court packing is the GOP squishes. I hope I am wrong but I just see them falling into line and voting to pack the court. Someone said we should add 50 justices, one for every state and who are appointed by the governor of that state. Personally maybe we should treat it like senate seats, two for every state and they run for election on a rotating basis every, say 5 years or so.
NO. DOT. STOP.
Supreme Court Justices should not “run for office.” That ENSURES that they will be swayed by popular opinion. You might as well shred and burn the Constitution right now.
Senator Ben Sasse explained it in detail in his 15 minutes during the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing. It’s worth your time.
