Arizona Citizens Supporting Honest Representative Government At All Levels
The United States Supreme Court isn't merely one of America's most important institutions, it is also one of the most important elements of our constitutional system of checks and balances, not to mention the gold standard of judicial independence and integrity on the planet. Despite its judicial and governmental prowess, Democrats—more aptly radical Marxists—have made clear their intention to politicize and co-opt the Supreme Court for their own selfish political gain through a strategy known as "court packing."
Democrats' current attempts to abuse the Court are by no means the first of their kind. In fact, Democrat President Franklin Delano Roosevelt raised the specter of increasing the number of Supreme Court Justices nearly 100 years ago in an attempt to appoint a majority of justices who would approve his unconstitutional New Deal programs. Yet even his own Democratic Party, which controlled both chambers of Congress, rejected the idea. The Senate Judiciary Committee, at the time, called it “a measure which should be so emphatically rejected that its parallel will never again be presented to the free representatives of the free people of America.”
Given the unadulterated insanity of 2020, it should come as no surprise that Democrats once again began advocating for packing the Supreme Court.
During the Democratic Presidential primaries the Washington Post
Kamala Harris as “open to it” on the issue of court packing. Later, during the Vice Presidential debate in October, Harris refused to answer the question. Joe Biden, who's advisers have openly advocated for packing the court, now claims the position that he will appoint a commission to study the idea and other court reforms for 180 days, should he be sworn in as President.
Editor's note: yes, we know this is symbolic. It's designed to put this in front of the nation, even democrats. There are more Rs and Is than Ds who might be interested in putting the pressure on their own batty Congressmen. As we conservatarians say, "Don't just sit there. Do SOMETHING to get things rolling. Even if it's wrong, something will happen.
We need more states to follow suit.
Speaking of Vice-President Harris, there is a courft case regarding whether she is a "natural born citizen" or not--a requirement to be vice-president or president. Stay tuned.
