I think it WILL happen for political reasons. What is the downside, politically, for Democrats if they gain power and do it? Again: The demographic trends are in their favor. The groups that might object to them doing it are shrinking in terms of proportions of the population. Their supporters are really pissed off right now by the fact that a minority controls the government. When they gain control it's going to be pitchforks time. Their supporters are going to want blood. Figuratively, of course.
Ivy is right. It won't happen for political reasons. Its not just conks who would be universally against it- most independents would too, and even some donks. They would have to have the POTUS and a super super majority in Congress to do that, because not all donks in Congress would vote for it. And if it ever got to that point, before it did, the donks would have already had the opportunity to nominate & confirm several SCOTUS justices into the 9 member court we have now, thereby negating the need for your court packing dream.
But you go right ahead and keep believing the court packing nonsense if it makes you feel better. Anything to help relieve your TDS is probably good for you.
For a "conservative" he sure does seem to have his panties in a bunch over a couple of pretty vanilla SCOTUS picks, doesn't he?
