While the main focal point of late has been gun control, immigration and trade, there’s a new battle brewing. Democrats have not been shy about their desire to change the Supreme Court. On Monday, Senate Democrats gave a warning to the Supreme Court. Due to recent rulings, the Democrats claimed that the court has issues and may need restructuring. In essence, since the court has ruled against something things the Democrats wanted, there must be something wrong with it.
Interestingly, two articles released on a couple sites talking about the Supreme Court and that it’s severely broken and it’s need to stay out of partisan politics. In the first article, the writer said that the Supreme Court must stay above the fray in partisan politics. In the article, the writer suggests that the court should take note of the warnings of court packing by Democrats. It suggests that a significant amount of American’s are not happy with the Conservative majority on the court and the court should tilt its views to match the Democrats.
But is there really a majority of people happy with the Supreme Court? I find this hard to believe, especially given some recent rulings in which these “conservative majority” justices sided with liberal justices. Conservatives were excited with the nomination of 2 justices by President Trump, who have hardly been hardcore conservatives so far. Rather than celebrate the wins they have, Democrats are bent on absolute rule against Conservatives.
The second article seemingly popped up all over my news feed on Thursday. The article at TheBulwark sought to tell why the Supreme Court is broken and how to fix it. Like the first article, this article also states that the Supreme Court is at the center of the problem in the US. The article gives 3 different rulings to support it’s claims. We’ll look at those closer here.
First of all, the article uses the case of Citizens United. In this ruling, the Supreme Court ruled that free speech was being violated by restrictions on businesses and unions in being able to spend money on political purposes. Democrats have long argued that these special interests are bad for elections. Alternatively, Republicans have argued that this right of free speech is protected under the first amendment and should not be restricted.
The second case used is Shelby County. In this case, the writer unloaded the pile of garbage used regarding Republican attempts at minority voter suppression. The case revolved around the requirements of voter ID’s to vote. The article cites there are no instances of voter fraud, yet there are documented cases of just that. You can view information about voter fraud at this link from the Heritage Foundation.
Lastly, the article used the recent Rucho case, which involved gerrymandering in several states. The article states that Republicans have abused this in recent redistricting, even after the author states that both sides have used this to their advantage in the past. In the case, the Supreme Court ruled that they were not going to step in and strike down the recently redrawn districts, which led Democrats to cry foul.
In the end, this is just another case of the Democrats upset that they cannot force their will on everyone. Dealing with Democrats is like dealing with a group of 2 year old children. When a child is unable to have their way, they become upset and try to force their will. A quick scroll through any news site or social media page will lead you to see nothing but upset Democrats acting childish, rather than attempting to have meaningful conversation. When conservatives attempt conversation, you’re called names and demeaned. Democrats are the problem, not the Supreme Court.
