In recent years, Democrats have not only pivoted from Constitutional doctrines to Marxist ones, but now they are seeking out the utter gutting of our Founding Fathers most precious gift to the American people, and that is the Constitution of the United States of America!
Before 2018, Democrats had made comments, on rare occasions, about their desires to gut-specific areas of the Constitution. However, in the era of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and her Marxist ideological aspirations, the Democrat Party has now openly embraced her Marxist ideology and Constitutional gutting agenda! Even, the 2020 Democrat Presidential contenders and Party leadership have joined in with her call to dramatically increase the size of the Supreme Court, and ‘pack’ it with dozens of left-wing ideologues, who will serve as a rubber stamp for the New Socialist Collective, rather than a check on the power of the other two branches of Government, or the lower courts, as the Constitution had intended! Therefore, now the Democrat Party intends to help Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ fringe fantasy become a reality, as they kick start a left-wing transformation of America!
To no surprise, an openly Communist group called ‘Means of Production is advertising through a strong-arm pressure group known as Pack the Courts. They are now producing a slew of viral online ads for Ocasio-Cortez, in their push to eliminate one of their biggest roadblocks to their Communization of America…THE SUPREME COURT!
In recent days, the Establishment Democrats have pushed back against the Marxist wing of the Party, but as that pressure has become nearly insurmountable, the Old-Time Establishment Wing of the Party has succumbed to their evil charms, as they have joined up with Demand Justice, which is a group run by Brian Fallon, who happens to be the former Hillary Clinton press secretary, and a devout Socialist and Marxist!
The last time a Party tried to pack the courts was in 1937 when Franklin Delanore Roosevelt became frustrated with the Supreme Court, as it blocked many of his Socialist New Deal proposals! Therefore, Roosevelt tried to expand the court in the number of justices, and sought to pack it with those who towed the Progressive line! His proposal included appointing a new justice for every sitting justice over 70 years old. However, it was opposed by both Republicans and Democrats from his own Party, as they deemed it a dangerous and threatening move that would unstabilize the nation, and weaken the Constitution!
Now, 2020 Presidential candidates are all talking about their plans to overhaul the Supreme Court, as some want to add a few Justices, while others are talking about adding ten more! 2020 Candidates like Senator Cory Booker (D-NJ), Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA), Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MASS), Senator Kirsten Gillibrant (D-NY), and others have all indicated their own desire to expand the court, but if they did, it could set up a never-ending precedent!
For example, Ilya Shapiro, who is the Director of Constitutional Studies at CATO Institute said…
“Something this controversial could be bad for Democrats indeed in the 2020 election. Where does it end? If President Kamala Harris adds two justices, then the next Republican president adds two more in a constant cycle, until we end up with 134 people on Supreme Court.”
Regardless, Senator Elizabeth Warren said she didn’t care, as she stated that…
“First they steal a Supreme Court seat, and then they turn around and change the rules on the filibuster on a Supreme Court seat. So when it swings back to us what are we going to do? I think all the options are on the table.”
Cory Booker went even a step further, as he proposed that…
“I would like to start exploring a lot of options. Term limits for Supreme Court justices might be one thing.”
Unfortunately, that would further politicize a branch that is supposed to be non-political! If that was the case, it would further erode the trust and confidence that the American people have in the highest court, and it would no longer base decisions on the Constitution, but instead on political ideology, and Democrats hope that it would be Marxist ideology!
Since 1869, the Constitution has the number of Supreme Court Justices set to nine. However, Democrat Party frustration with the Court refusing to buck the Constitution and rule based on ideology has led them to look for these new and radically unstabilizing ideas!
Meanwhile, the advocacy group called “Pack The Court” has been quietly and quickly raising a half million dollars to push Dems further towards this new court-packing scheme! Also, the pro-Marxist group ‘Demand Justice” is stating that…
“We strongly believe that reforming the court — especially by expanding it — is the cornerstone for re-building American democracy. The Kavanaugh court is a partisan operation, and democracy simply cannot function when stolen courts operate as political shills.”
However, Shapiro profoundly warns of such extreme and unstabilizing efforts, as she says that such talk, from either the right or left, has little practical or societal benefit. She added…
“What’s being proposed is a pure political plan and that’s going to be controversial and polarizing. If you start adding justices for purely partisan motives, that can’t help but divide the country even further.”
In the end, the Democrats will continue to erode the power of the Constitution, and the protections that it grants to ‘We the People’! Eliminating the power of the Supreme Court is yet another method that they are using to destroy the Constitutional freedoms of Americans! Add to that their goal of allowing 16-year-olds to vote, combined with their efforts to eliminate the Electoral College, and they will have effectively destroyed the power of the Constitution, silenced the American voters, and officially ended the Checks on their Elitist Political, Economic, and Social class in America! In a nutshell, it will be them (the haves), and Middle America (the have-nots), as they will have destroyed one of the greatest nations in the history of mankind, the United States of America!
