As you are reading this, Joe Biden has his little minions trying to figure out a way to justify packing the Supreme Court.
That plan, however, is about to take a hefty kick in the pants.
Supreme Court Justice Breyer, one of the three liberal justices on the court, has come out to openly push back against packing the court.
When Trump was able to appoint three Supreme Court justices in a single term, pure fear ran through the Democrat Party.
Their worries were for naught, as we have all found out over the last few months.
Every justice Trump appointed has crossed the aisle at some point, proving this to be one of the most balanced courts we have seen in our lifetime.
Even so, Democrats do not like the way things are sitting and there is a significant movement within the party to pack the court to give the technical advantage back to the liberals.
Don’t Do It
Prior to passing away, Justice Ginsburg openly stated that she was not in favor of packing the courts.
Now, Justice Stephen Breyer, another liberal, has said the same.
Breyer stated, “Our power, the court’s power, has to depend on the public’s willingness to respect its decision.
“Respect even those decisions they disagree with… even when they think the decision is seriously mistaken.”
“Proposals have been recently made to increase the number of Supreme Court justices. I’m sure that others will discuss related political arguments.
“This lecture reflects my own effort to be certain that those who are going to debate these questions … also consider an important institutional point. Consider it. Namely, how would court-packing reflect and affect the rule of law itself?
“Discussion of institutional change should include discussion of certain background matters such as the trust that the court has gradually built. The long period of time needed to build that trust.”

Needless to say, those on the left that want to pack the court could care less what Breyer says…
Expand the Supreme Court.

We all realize that the party in power at the time of a justice passing away or retiring is sheer chance in terms of who gets to appoint justices to the court.
We have lived by that rule since the court was created and to this point, it has worked.
The balance of power in the court is cyclical in nature and at some point, liberals will once again have the advantage.
I go back to a point I made earlier, however, in that although conservatives hold a 6-3 advantage on the court, it is arguably one of the fairest courts we have had in a long time.
I do not always agree with the decisions, but I believe that when you do not know the outcome of the case before it is heard, that is a good thing.
For far too long in this country, all you needed to do was to see party affiliation of a judge to predict the outcome of the case, and that is simply not the way the justice system was meant to be deployed, including the Supreme Court.
