    We could take it a step further, and have people vote on the court judgements themselves!

    Maybe to make it more efficient, have a group of 12 lucky people that get to vote on each judgement?
    It's all about taking action and not being lazy. So you do the work, whether it's fitness or whatever. It's about getting up, motivating yourself and just doing it.

    We have long had death and taxes as the two standards of inevitability. But there are those who believe that death is the preferable of the two. "At least," as one man said, "there's one advantage about death; it doesn't get worse every time Congress meets."

    His plan to expand SCOTUS to 15 justices was rejected. His ability to stack the court with New Deal sympathizers obviously did not fail. He was the only 4 term President so he was given an extra ability to appoint more justices than any other President would have been able to. He appointed 8 of the 9!

    Talk to people about liberty. You won't find it on websites, you won't find it in politicians.

    I wish somebody had rolled Roosevelt down the stairs.
    In sorrow, we must go, but not in despair. Behold! We are not bound forever to the circles of the world, and beyond them is more than memory. Farewell!

    So what? Taft was only a one-term President, and he appointed 5 justices. The point is that every President tries to appoint people who share his views. But many times it backfires -- Teddy Roosevelt, for example, appointed Oliver Wendell Holmes because he thought he would be a strong supporter of the antitrust laws. It turned out otherwise. Some justices turn out to be more liberal (Eisenhower appointed Earl Warren, Gerald Ford appointed John Paul Stevens, and Bush senior appointed David Souter) while some become more conservative (FDR appointed Felix Frankfurter).

    In a 1984 speech Former Chief Justice William Rehnquist pointed out that while there's nothing wrong with "court-packing", it doesn't always work. See https://www.washingtonpost.com/archi...=.44db60245f5d

    You can say that about any type of job or anyplace where you recruit someone. The difference is that in this case(no pun) the people your hiring can't be fired and while there are a few busts(the Ryan Leafs of Supreme Court picks) most of the time the justices go with the views of the president picking them. If they are going to try to pack the court with socialist we should try to stop them instead of leave it chance that the picks backfire.

    Leaving the interpretation of what the CONstitution meant to nine clowns in gowns was just another asinine aspect of it. Should have stuck with the Articles.
    Theye have refused their Assent to Laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

    Theye have erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

    Theye kept among us, in times of peace, Standing Armies

    Theye have combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our constitution,

    For protecting them, by a mock Trial from punishment for any Murders which they should commit on the Inhabitants of these States:

    For cutting off our Trade with parts of the world:

    For imposing Taxes on us without our Consent:

    For depriving us in many cases, of the benefit of Trial by Jury:

    Theye plundered and destroyed the lives of our people.

    Theye are at this time transporting Armies of Mercenaries to compleat the works of death, desolation, and tyranny, already begun with circumstances of Cruelty & Perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy of a civilized nation.
