Whether the Democrats pack the court or not depends on the actions of the court.

We may say that justices are conservative or liberal, but most are more interested in judicial integrity than partisan politics. They usually try to balance the court...which is why Roberts has been voting 'liberal' quite a lot.

If the decisions of the USSC in the next few years are outrageously partisan, then you can count on Democrats packing the court. If decisions are reasonably sound then they won't pack the court.
Democrats don't want reasonably sound decisions. They want a rubber stamp.
You just love your strawmen, don't you!

LOL Judges are supposed to make decisions based on the LAW and the Constitution, not a conservative or liberal point of view. The problem is the liberal members of the Court make decisions based on ideology not on law.

Nonsense. Whenever anybody loses a case they declare that the judges were somehow biased. Nobody ever admits that they were wrong.

The idea of 'Liberal Activist' judges is just a myth.

It's not a strawman. It's reality. Your acknowledgement is neither sought nor required.

Yikes. Right wingers are about to pack the SC with conservative appointees and you're bitching about...what??
Please..make up your mind..and stop quoting alt-right media sources. :)

You scared, bro? :auiqs.jpg:se
Not scared.. Also not confused about the diff between replacing empty seats and "packing more seats" onto the SUpCt like you apparently are...
