    Default Will we have any choice but to expand the court once Trump is out?

    I cannot see any other way out of this. Either sit through 20-30 years of a new Lochner court, or pack the supreme court. I was joking before. I am serious now. It is a violation of norms, but so was refusing to consider a nomination for the supreme court until someone of your party was president. Fuck it, the Republicans made their bed, they will lie in it.

    At the very least, two extra judges... one to cancel Gorsuch's vote, and Merrick. Then we can be back to a normal situation, with a relatively balanced court. It's insane to have the possibility of the majority of the supreme court appointed by presidents who didn't win the popular vote - two steps removed from the popular will. And a vast majority of justices appointed by one party, when they do not have a vast majority of the votes, due mostly to luck and trickery. Never before in history will one party control so much with so few Americans agreeing with it. It is a recipe for a civil war, when the people cannot change the government peacefully, other solutions become both necessary and justified.

    Sorry, Woke.
    The Game Plan is to install Christian Sharia Law. They will be appointed for Life. One of the (secret) Main Goals is to change the name to the Christian Republic of America.

    Socialist dictator, Franklin "concentration camp" Roosevelt, tried to increase the court to 15 so he could stack the deck for himself, ... right after he confiscated all the gold from private citizens.

    I'm unaware of "Leftists were screaming bible quotes over family separation", but am aware of how the Christian Right wants to take over America.

    Don't be retarded.

    It was the liberals demanding that we must act like a Christian nation and obey the bible when it comes to the family separation issue and illegal immigration.

    prole. you have been bent over for a decade. perhaps what you perceive as wokest is actually comatose ? maybe I don't know what a "Wokest" is. maybe you meant "Locust". a bug.

    Most judges will interpret the Constitution,as it was written.

    Doesn't really matter at this point. Hope you enjoy living in a hugely socially conservative society. Saudi Arabia at this rate is probably going to pass us as we have a new Lochner era. How long until our women have to wear the veil?

    I say Trump should expand it now and that way we can get away from these 5/4 decisions and looking at it being 11/4.

    I don't give a fuck about how the constitution was written, I want it interpreted as it was when we were at our height as a civilization, not as some arch-conservative imagines society in the 18th century to be.
