Oh yes now it’s slipping away. Bc we have judges who are going to follow the law not make it up on the fly. Your line of reasoning is so flawed so pathetic so juvenile. Tell that Roger Stone SCOTUS politicized...DISGUSTING LEGACY OF THE RNC. PATHETIC JforDemocracy Just like Nazi Germany. 47 years of anarchy in the courts are what Trump has shown.

Real talk One of the things helping America along in its slide to the status of a once great nation, the other contributors being the electoral college system of electing the president, gerrymandering and the role of money (think Koch brothers) in determining who should lead the country. The critical thinking lamps are going out all over the nation, we shall not see them lit again in our lifetime.

Slipping away? They've been lost for decades. Our nation is in trouble because the judges are ruling from the bench, not interpreting law. Which is precisely why there ought to be a rebalancing act (at least at SCOTUS level) so that it gets back to being exactly that. Nowhere does it state the (maximum) number of justices that should serve. After 150 years, it’s high time to expand the highest Court in the land!

I’m concerned! We are. We must have a constitutional amendment that requires 2/3 vote in the United States Senate to get onto the federal courts. These are lifetime appointments and these judges need to have to support of the super majority. Agreed LMFAOOOO!!! What’s sad is that the lemmings believe this. By installing constitutionalists and not activists like Hussein the court will now become less political. The left is actively seeking to destroy America. It’s no longer a conspiracy theory.

The Supreme court is still independent. If the unscrupulous democrats win and try to pack the court THEN it will be politicized and weaponozed against Americans NoCourtPacking They’ve been working on this for years. In the rest of the world it's just called 'Banana Republic' politics. Sorry for your country.

That's slipping away right now. McConnell has been working on this for years. They've always known the only way to overcome the voice of the majority was by owning the courts. Guys wake up! discover G news or G TV from hell laptop I do NOT like Trump’s policies or antics! BUT - I have to give him this credit; he surely got people to go out to vote in this 2020 election :-)

Sen cruz says the Democrats want to politicize SCOTUS and other fed courts to fit their agenda. Maybe cruz can explain what it is trump and this republican enablers are doing with the courts - isn’t trump saying he only wants to appoint pro-life judges an agenda? We are very concerned How is it fair that 6 of 9 justices are Catholic?

You still think Republicans care about fairness and ethics? 😂🤦🏼‍♂️ Why is SCOTUS interfering with our elections? Why are we accepting HERD IMMUNITY? Why are we RED and BLUE states? Why is there a corupt family running our WH. Why did the Republican Senate hand over our souls to thrump? Why does the rest of the WORLD pity us? THINK ABOUT IT!

Yep They also can’t be above the law They must base their decisions on the voters not presidents favors people are human even dead think to the SCOTUS peoples vote is what counts you can’t decide just to trough that away on a book shelf it’s in the constitution What's your answer? We are defeated. Moscow Mitch played dirty in the sand box.

Fake Ass News Lol. Its way to left still Vote BIDEN/HARRIS and help U.S. fix it! My biggest fear is the future of my kids and grandchildren if Trump wins re-election. I pray not. This will become a fascist country and every aspect of society will be politicized. Our democracy is slipping away unless we fight to get it back. VOTE

Clearly the case with Brett K. Listen closely folks to what this crook is saying about the election‼️ SMFH Nut jobs She is totally right All Americans should be disturbed by the fact that our elected leaders complain more than actually governing 😏 McConnell's mission was to stack the Judiciary with political hacks. He is the architect of politicizing our Courts. He care nothing about the U.S., only his party. He cares even less about working across the aisle. voteblue

The Supreme court is just as it should be and always has been. So why do you want to stop a person who wants to apply the law as written!!!! BY YOU!! I honestly believe this is a ploy by both the GOP and DNC to expand the courts to stop a 3rd party from ever getting any control. The more GOP and DNC judges, the longer we are stuck with 2 parties running the country.

we are disturbed. our elected officials have betrayed us No, Trump made it political. MAGA family members are currently more focused on Shep Smiths low ratings. That’s what they are posting about. Stop bitching about it. Dems projecting as always. I'm waiting for the hunter pee tape now
