Newt's "bright idea."

Newt Gingrich announces his new idea to curb judicial activism.

Gingrich follows FDR with court-packing scheme.

(From the last paragraph of the article)

"To restore the Constitution, you can't subvert the Constitution. An independent judiciary is essential to our constitutional system. The way to confine the courts to their proper role is to appoint the right people--principled constitutionalists -- to the federal bench.

To do that, we need the right president in the White House."

And to achieve THAT little task, we need a morale people, educated in the Constitution and history.
And with all the entitlement- mentality people with their hands out to the Gubbment for their daily subsistence, I don't see that happening anytime soon.

It's actually quite easy to do if you remove the Marxists from the senate and have a president that understands the situation and will act in accordance with the original intent of the founders.

But then you will have to remove half the supreme court and circuit courts because they have packed it with their people.

Did I ever mention a that this was all part of a plan? Still think this is going to be settled peacefully? Maybe it will. They've used your money to train your kids to be good little Marxists, in their public schools.

Done Deliberately.

A writer and thinker whom I greatly admire, Butler Shaffer, recently commented "Newt Gingrich personifies the viciousness of the modern state."

I strongly suspect he used the word "viciousness" in its original meaning, as did Lysander Spooner: embodying vice.

I don't know what this reporter is talking about, the court packing plan worked perfectly. Ol' Sit and Spin threatened the Supreme Court and they sheepishly did as he wanted. They stopped declaring his blatantly unconstitutional plans as blatantly unconstitutional. It lasted so long, witness the period of time from 1937 until 1995 when nothing the feds did was deemed unconstitutional.
