Liberals had a 5-4/6-3 majority on the Supreme Court for over 40 years from the late 1950s to the early 2000s. Did Republicans even suggest packing the court or "rotating justices," much less attempt to do so, even when they took control of the Senate in 1982 and again in 1994? No. But liberal Democrats, being a bunch of whining babies who can't stand to lose, now want to pack the court because, heaven forbid, we now have a reliable 5-4 conservative majority for perhaps 10 years, 15-20 years.

And this is what we are dealing with.
The OP is absolutely correct. The true mark of tyrants = "MY WAY OR NO WAY"

Now they threaten retaliation since we finally have a balanced fair CONSTITUTIONAL court.
There is absolutely no way America survives with people like that gaining power.

For example, imagine if half or more of the nation became devoted Communists......(it may have already happened, but they don't even realize it)

After years of judicial activism working to force America to go with an agenda the lefties could never pass through legislation, now they are saying the activism comes from the right. Just like they say the violent riots are all from the right. And how they say the Deep State is working to PROTECT DT. Or voter fraud comes from Repubs. Projection is one of the major defining characteristics of progressivism. That & a dangerous form of delusional psychosis where they feel entitled to violently attack anyone who disagrees with them. A case can easily be made that progressivism is a type of mental illness

I'm afraid many have become devoted communists without even realizing it. The Marxists have always said America will not accept communism or socialism unless they first disguised it as liberalism/progressivism and pre-conditioning the most vulnerable and/or ignorant into believing their lies as truth. We are reaping the crops of what they have been sowing for decades. It is a crop of choking weeds & brambles that has to be eradicated at the roots for the field to ever produce & prosper again

The Court has been decidedly Conservative for 50 years with Republican Presidents filling the most seats

And positive rulings were done by the more liberal American values courts. Sad that injustice has returned to the highest court in the land. Those hurt are always the least powerful. And so it goes....

"Few American institutions have inflicted greater suffering on ordinary people than the Supreme Court of the United States. Since its inception, the justices of the Supreme Court have shaped a nation where children toiled in coal mines, where Americans could be forced into camps because of their race, and where a woman could be sterilized against her will by state law.

LOL! Eee-gads! Decidedly conservative? Who are you? Heard of Roe v. Wade? The Miranda decision? Heard of the Warren Court? Heard of the Burger Court? Heard of all the decisions in the 60s, 70s, and 80s that took prayer out of school, banned the display of the Ten Commandments in school, banned prayer at high school football games, banned Nativity plays in school, etc., etc., etc.? Any of this ringing a bell?

Yes, Republican presidents nominated the majority of justices between 1960 and 2000, but many of the Republican nominees were not conservatives. For example, Ike appointed Earl Warren, and Bush Sr. appointed David Souter. How do you suppose all those liberal decisions occurred in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s?

Good grief. Your reply will go down as one of the most goofiest gaffes ever published on an Internet forum. Where did you learn history?

Liberals are the little faggots you used to play football with in the backyard who took their ball and went home every time they started losing.

Whiny maggots. So unethical.

The dems haven't had a SC majority since 91.

.

Despite holding the WH 16 years to the gop's 12 out of the last 28 years, and that's even counting Souter (an HW appointee) as not a gop

I have been preaching this for at least 20 years.

Commies never went away. They just changed their clothing and started hiding their identity.

The only way to REALLY get rid of them is....

I had to, I just had to. LOL

But seriously. So long as the gop maj upholds STATE supreme court's decisions that interpret STATE laws on counting ballots, I don't see the bitch. But the fed govt has the power to ensure the 14th amend guarantees of equal protection and due process apply to ALL people in federal elections … even when we don't like ALL people for any reason … be they the wrong color or the wrong party.

The Justices nominated and then put onto the court seem to be different then advertised at times. Progs are never like that. The Communist Manifesto and the propaganda from the Pravda media/entertainers fiefdom has done their damage.

because they likely feel they are in a free fall and looking for any victory they can get. human nature but wow are they pushing it to an extreme.

i don't care which side "owns" the supreme court. i care they make decisions off the constitution, not what they wish the constitution to be or to correct it's "failings".

if we need to consider redoing our supreme court great. but it must be done together to create something that works for both sides as evenly as possible. by nature one side will feel "favored" and again - human nature. but we also see judges make decisions that are not necessarily along party lines.

it should never be done cause you lost and demand power back. nothing in our gov should change due to that.

All over 40-50 years ago.

There hasn’t been a predominantly Liberal court since the 1960s
