The gloves are off. Is it time to appoint additional SC justices? We're spiraling downward

and damn well better consider getting in the fight. Inch by inch, day by day, the other side makes gains (?) while we watch, and has been doing so for years. Yes, I know, the 1/6 Committee is doing groundbreaking work, and I applaud them, but if TFG gets away with the attempted overthrow of our democracy without consequences for him and his cabal of cronies, itís game over.

Popular opinion is null and void. Itís past the time to get serious.

1. Day late meet buck short.

THAT should've been started on DAY ONE of Biden's admin.

3. The lack of focus on the judiciary branch was a major mistake


Complacency is deadly

2. We also need to impeach those justices who lied during the confirmation hearings.

Yes, I know they will not be expelled; but impeaching them and making them endure a trial that calls into question their judgment and highlights their extremism would be enough to destroy the publicís trust in them and aid the push to expand the court.

6. Its not time to appoint additional Justices, in that President Biden doesn't want to.

And neither do most Democratic Senators.

7. So you prefer to sit back and do nothing while SCOTUS destroys us?

That does not seem like a wise choice.

8. Again, you should take up your concerns with the President and Senate...

Talking about it here won't accomplish anything.

9. Grabbing the water hose

AFTER the house has burned to the ground does nothing. And that is exactly what is happening right now. What was NOT a wise choice was to ignore the importance of the SC for the last FOURTY YEARS!

10. We don't have the votes

The President can't decide to increase the Supreme Court by himself. It has to happen in Congress (correct me if I am wrong here)

We need a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate and a strong majority in the House.

So talk of this has only one purpose: To Get Out the Fucking Vote! Get those Majorities, so that we can actually do something about this.
