    the founders were correct that political parties and their posturing for power over the people will destroy this country. just watching all of those dems bawl crocodile tears about a supposedly destroyed democracy, especially given that they just won an election, is pathetic and pitiful. packing the court will destroy democracy, not restore it
    In a combat situation it is about 16 times better to do something useful and violent right away than to wait and figure out something even more useful and violent later.

    Then why wasn’t the country’s democracy destroyed all the times the number of Judges was changed in the past? Court has had anywhere from five to ten Justices on the past, changed in nearly all those cases for political purposes, yet, here we are

    baby steps. all baby steps. EACH TIME adding judges to install political viewpoints of one side or the other to dominate was a step to destroying america. In todays political divide, you are definitely looking at another civil war.

    Doubtful, Mitch’s mockery of the whole Court nomination process didn’t produce a Civil War, this is just another continuation of the same

    Got to love it when one as “copy and paste” jumps in with that which has already been discredited, ought to stick with his corny video “rebuttals” than actual exchanging content

    I noticed that certain people want politicians to remain the same, no matter what.

    THAT IS AN ASTUTE OBSERVATION I EXPECT FROM YOU.

    But it didnít happen, came nowhere close to happening, the same would occur now if they did add Justices, lot of angry talk, and thatís about it

    Point you are missing is that Mitch has already made the Court a joke via his political games, what is happening here is just a continuation

    the court was a joke long before mitch. the court has been political since FDR, even before his packing threat. just more continuation towards civil war. It probably won't happen next year, but it's another step. keep angering the people, both of you (democrats and republicans)...........it won't be much longer

    the only real hope in preventing that is the states learning that they can nullify the feds

    Why should they have been o bung holes . o yes you didnt like it. Guess what tough . trump fill the positions now why dont you explain why we need 4 more justices . because your butt hurt is not a reason either
