5. We need to "Balance the Courts"...not "stack" them. That term isn't appropriate.

The constitution never said how many justices so the number has fluctuated over the years. There are many options the Dems can and must take if we are to have a democracy. Add more Federal judges, add more justices, write norms down, add states, etc. As James Carville says, "Dems can't be all goody-goody Mr. Nice Guys. That is what got us here. We have to play hard and mean, like the GOP has been. Teddy Roosevelt, FDR and others have in the past and we must get back to that type of thinking and behavior ASAP. No more Kumbaya nonsense!".
