    So long as the judges being appointed are conservative.

    No, period. It's never been considered court packing. Attempting to add Justices to the court beyond the traditional nine, is the definition of "court packing". Were you seriously unaware of this? Wow.

    FDR was the last US president to attempt to pack the SCOTUS. Damn dude, peruse a history book once in a while.

    All justices should be conservative, if you mean, as I do, the justices should conserve the original meaning and intention of the Constitution.

    Anything less is imperfect and tilts toward tyranny.

    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.


    I pledge allegiance to the Constitution as written and understood by this nation's founders, and to the Republic it created, an indivisible union of sovereign States, with liberty and justice for all.

    No one did, it's just another case of the left twisting words and writing new definitions.

    I just heard they won't even hear the case until their next term, in October. So much for swift justice.
