Subj: Re: I say pack the Court until it becomes totally irrelevant as a legislative body... which it shouldn't be to begin with.

Previously I would have been hesitant to that sort of approach but I think this highlights the problems with the current system.

It also is an oddity that presidents that did not even win the popular vote consistently nominated the majority of the Court. So, it is rewarding bad faith actions in the Senate in the first place.

A court is needed, but the courts goal should be to protect the citizens at large under the law. Not to interpret the laws to favor regressive policies or when convenient the very rich to rule as oligarchs while undermining programs that may do some good.

I am honestly not sure what the solution is in the end, just my thoughts on the Amendment process, although court packing is another.
