9. We're way past the point of thinking Republican will observe any norms.

Republicans smashed norms to pack the court as it is.
Any fix we put in for the Supreme Court, they will reverse when they get the chance.

All we can do is repair the damage and try to fix the brainwashing that makes them think and act in such a destructive, partisan fashion.

If we put term limits in, they could easily reverse that. Or pack the courts themselves. Or come up with anothe way to rig the system in their favor.

It's what they do, and will continue to do, until they are taught they need to give up that crap.


Bringing the court up to 15 members seems like the simplest and most practical solution.

Yes, if they get control of congress abs the presidency, they can up it to 25, but they wouldn't like that for other reasons, so it seems like the best solution. Not that anything is a good, permanent fix...
