    Now Democrats Want To 'Expand The House Of Representatives'

    When all else fails, change the system.

    Leftist luminaries, who weren't able to stop the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, suggested in the aftermath that Americans should consider reforming the Senate. Reminded that expanding the Senate would require a Constitutional Amendment, they've now, apparently, resorted to "reforming" the other half of the bicameral legislature, the House of Representatives.

    NBC News reports that some Democratic activists are suggesting that to even out the "balance of power," the size of the House should grow as much as double its current size.

    "Expanding the House of Representatives would be a vast improvement over the status quo — with the potential to impact all branches of government," activist Steve Vladick opines for NBC's "Think" platform.

    "[C]hanging the size of the House of Representatives — from its current total of 435 seats to 650 seats, or one for every 500,000 constituents — would make that body far more reflective of the country at large; would dramatically affect presidential elections; and, perhaps alone among all of these proposed reforms, would most be in keeping with the wishes of the Constitution’s drafters," he continues.

    I see. They want to submit to "the wishes of the Constitution's drafters" for this. But not to the 2nd Amendment, 10th Amendment, the Senate being a trial court for impeachment when the impeached is a Democrat (the claim made Tom Harkin from Iowa) in spite of that exact language listed for Senate responsibilities, the 1st Amendment, etc. Funny how they know what the framers wanted and either twist it to something else or insist on their exact definition whenever either position suits them. All without ever looking at what the document actually says.

    The same clowns want to expand the Supreme Court to make it easier to stack things in their favor. Like all other things they never put any thought to, that will bite them the very next time they don't have control. 9 judges becomes 21, 21 becomes 35, and before you know it nothing happens at SCOTUS because of having to stop business due to child births, deaths in the family, unexpected family problems, etc as the number of jurists is approaching 500. (Not a bad thing, stopping the court. But certainly the opposite of what the left is after.)

    Owning guns isn't a right. If it was a right it would be in the Constitution.
