All those years the Supreme Court battered America with one Far Left ruling after another, Democrats couldn’t stop grinning.
But now that the Court has turned toward the right, Dems are screaming bloody murder. Impeach the justices! Pack the court! Assassinate the judges!
The latest ploy is a bill in Congress to impose 18-year term limits on Supreme Court justices, with new ones appointed every two years (https://justthenews.com/government/congress/democrats-introduce-bill-scotus-term-limits). Congress gotta do something to rein in “the radical, unrestrained majority” that has totally lost touch with the Far Left American people, blah-blah… says Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Georgia).
Remember him? In 2010 he was afraid the island of Guam might “tip over and capsize” if we put any more Marines on it. He has been re-elected (supposedly) half a dozen times since then. He’s been in Congress since 2007. No term limits for him! Heck, he’s just getting warmed up.
Please ignore the fact that Article III of the Constitution states that Supreme Court justices serve for life. Dems ignore everything else that’s in there. We don’t need no stinkin’ Constitution.
Don’t you love it? Year after year after year, whenever the Democrat Party wanted something that the people wouldn’t give them–“gay marriage,” for instance; or the abolition of school prayer, which started all the mischief–they just went running to the courts and a friendly left-wing judge would give it to them.
Now the shoe is on the other foot and they can’t bear it. Damn that Supreme Court!
Ooh-ooh, I know, I know! How about term limits just for conservative judges, and no limits at all for the lefties? Keep ’em on the bench even after they die: we do have gifted taxidermists who could do the job.
We really must try to undo the harm that Democrats have done to our country.
