With the supreme court taking the new case on state legislature power over

Elections, Democrats have an even higher moral obligation to pass a law to add seats to the supreme court for the sake of our democracy. It will be up to Biden whether he wants to sign it were it to make it to his desk.

3. Agreed. However the chances of gaining seats in the Senate and keeping the house

Are increasingly good. This must be the first task in January if Democrats can manage to get enough seats to do it.

7. Bring a vote on this and others that protect our democracy to the floor of

the House and Senate every week. During the campaigns, use video of the vote to expose the Rs for what they say and do.

12. I'd bring a vote daily.

But, then again, I would never have agreed to bring scotus protection to the floor without SOLIDLY passed voting rights & other issues in the bank. 😏



On edit: not criticizing our Dem leaders. They have reasons, I'm sure, that I'm unaware of.

14. I agree. Providing SCOTUS protection was wrong. You are more optimistic about the

Ds reasoning to agree to this than I am. My opinion is that, despite what they say, they (Ds in Congress) think of the rest of us as "others" and their vote confirmed our two-level society.

You are very kind. As for me, I'll criticize any one and any Party that doesn't protect my rights while expanding and protecting others rights. Maybe it's because of my age but I just don't give a F*** about considering peoples feelings or trying to view the issue from their perspective any more. Some issues are right and some issues are wrong. The slaughtering of children is wrong. The infringement on my Constitutional rights as a woman is wrong. End of discussion.

2. It really feels like the game is over.

They have everything in place. The right checked us (and democracy itself) with the 2000 theft and McConnell checkmated us with the refusal to seat anyone President Obama selected.

They just wanted it more.

6. Polls are looking way better so far.

If it keeps, and we manage to gain seats in the Senate while keeping the house, the possibility is highly likely we can pass a bill. Biden would be completely insane not to sign it. Since Biden is not completely insane, I imagine he would sign it

8. I can't see him expanding the court under any circumstances.

But we can at least get some of the agenda passed if that were to happen.

15. It won't be entirely his choice.

If Congress passes the law, the only choice he has is to veto or sign. That decision will be based on whatever context of whatever events are occurring at the time a law is passed.

4. I'm hoping Uncle Clarence has a nice BIG fatal heart attack.

Maybe some of the J6 stress will do it.



We need another Thurgood Marshall on the court, or another KBJ.

5. This is part of coup 2.0.

The intention is to make the popular vote in each state irrelevant. They intend on heads I win tails you lose ‘elections’.

10. Voting Rights Act in the Senate First

That's the cure . . . because it will over ride their decision.

13. Yes, it's so obvious.

It should be a snap to pass!
