I believe and contend we should expand the U.S. Supreme Court to 35 S.C. Justices. Why?

1) To avoid the “Ginsburg Dilemma”” from ever happening again;
2) To lower the court backlog by utilizing 7 quorums of five-member panels – cases randomly assigned to a quorum of justices.

The Democrat Party should model the U.S. Supreme Court after the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals:

*the 9th Circuit employs 48 justices;

*the 9th Circuit randomly assigns small quorums (or en banc for major cases) to most cases, thereby increasing court caseload;

*if a 9th Circuit judge dies, such death does not derail the continuity of the court and its ability to process their caseload;

This is why I recommend 35 U.S. Supreme Court Justices on the U.S. Supreme Court, operating in seven quorums of five-member panels.

Such an arrangement would greatly reduce the court’s backlogged caseload, yet major cases could be decided en banc.

I think voters and party officials/politicians need to come to grip with the reality the incumbent party can set the makeup of the U.S. Supreme Court. It is perfectly constitutional for our government to expand the number of justices on the U.S. Supreme Court.

A President Joe Biden should shamelessly appoint 26 Democrat U.S. Supreme Court justices to go with the three Democrat justices and the six conservative lifetime-appointees already sitting on the court.

Trump and McConnell will be upset that they didn’t appoint umpteen conservative justices to the Supreme Court before Trump was wheeled out of office…..like McConnell purrs: “Elections have consequences.”

I recommend Democrats reject bi-partisanship between Democrats and Republicans since the solutions to America’s problems are not found in conservative policy but are found in progressive agenda. Republicans certainly have rejected bi-partisanship in favor of their conservative solutions and conservative appointments. I personally abhor conservatism – I consider conservatism a mild form of mental illness in the narcissistic vein of Donald Trump: “I’m doing great and to hell with you, buddy!”

Conservatives believe government is not supposed to be solving life’s major problems for Americans; Trump refused to invoke the Defense Production Act in the production of PPE – why not? Two reasons: one, Trump believes it’s not the job of the federal government to provide states PPE and testing; 2) Trump and Kushner made money hustling PPE on the private market; Kushner was selling masks for $8,9,10 bucks each whereas had Trump invoked the Defense Production Act, mask prices would have fallen to about a dollar or less per mask. Trump specifically stated he believes the private market would solve the problem, while he stuck his head…in the sand.

Progressives Moving the Progressive Agenda Foward

The fact is, Progressives are moving forward advancing the Progressive Agenda. We The Progressives include The Squad and other progressives in the Democrat Party, progressives in the Movement For A People’s Party, and many more progressive groups; i.e., Indivisible, Justice Democrats, Our Revolution,
Progressive Change Campaign Committee – Bold Progressives

Progressive ideals and goals are the future of America because progressivism makes sense for each person living in the U.S. The future of Congress does not include a Republican majority since conservatism nor Trumpism include progressive ideals and goals. I envision a future progressive Congressional coalition between the Democrat Party and a new progressive party to reach supermajority status, enabling such a progressive coalition to undo the judicial sins of Mitch McConnell and Donald Trump.

What is the “Progressive Agenda?”

The common grounds progressive agenda includes:

1) Medicare-For-All;

2) Universal Basic Income-For-All;

3) Fully-funding Federal and State Programs;

4) Green New Deal;

5) National Deadline For the Mass-Production of Gasoline Engines;

6) Education-For-All;

7) Eliminating Student Debt;

8) Ending Voter Suppression;

9) Ending Police Brutality and Murder;

10) Ultimate Tax Reform.

When I say the middle class and poor should support big, strong federal government, I’m referring to our federal government’s right and ability to create currency out of thin air. This unique feature of our government is arguably the most important aspect of our government and should be the most celebrated and cherished feature of our government. Fiat money is legal tender created by our U.S. Congress.

Congress enjoys a U.S. Const. right under the fifth clause of Article I, Section 8 to coin money: The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises, to pay the debts and provide for the common defense and general welfare of the United States; but all duties, imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
To borrow money on the credit of the United States; To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes; To establish a uniform rule of naturalization, and uniform laws on the subject of bankruptcies throughout the United States;

To coin money, regulate the value thereof, and of foreign coin, and fix the standard of weights and measures;

Whenever Congress needs money, Congress simply passes a bill and forwards that bill to the U.S. Treasury Dept. whereupon the Secretary of the Treasury “orders” or “borrows” the amount of money Congress has mandated in the bill from the Federal Reserve. Then the Federal Reserve “creates” the money via desktop computer keyboard keystrokes made by the current Chairman of the Federal Reserve. Then the Fed Chairman deposits said fiat money into a U.S. government bank account at the U.S. Treasury Dept., whereupon said fiat funds are accessible to “approved users.” The amount of money borrowed is known as the Federal Deficit and the amount of interest owed to the Federal Reserve is known as the National Debt.

It is absolutely essential voters understand how our Congress creates money in order to support a solution that does NOT include borrowing money from the Federal Reserve and growing a National Debt owed to the Federal Reserve.

We The People should elect a Congress that will print trillion-dollar platinum coins and deposit that U.S. currency directly into our U.S. government bank account at the U.S. Treasury Dept. BYPASSING THE FEDERAL RESERVE and therefore ELIMINATING ANY MORE NATIONAL DEBT INCREASES. There is no good reason the American people must “borrow money” from eight private banking institutions known as “The Federal Reserve” to fund U.S. government operations. There is no good reason the American people must pay interest on using our own money. The Federal Reserve is not a person and enjoys NO U.S. Constitutional right to charge the American people interest for using our own money.

Your entire life your Congress has been lying to you: Congress, in a most bi-partisan manner, has intentionally misled the American people into believing our government finances operate like a household budget: there is a finite amount of money avaialable and we must impose restrictions and austerity measures which include massive military funding and tax breaks for the rich, while never appropriating enough money for the needs of We The People.

Republican conservatives, Libertarians and moderate Democrats are all guilty of misleading the American voter as to the amount of money available for public solutions.

The very key to understanding and realizing THE SOLUTION to solving America’s problems is found in understanding THERE IS NO DOWNSIDE OF DEPOSITING INTEREST-FREE MONEY INTO U.S. GOV’T ACCOUNTS TO FUND THE NEEDS OF WE THE PEOPLE. We The People can and should use the most utilitarian feature of our government to fully fund the needs of We The People; conservatives vehemently oppose funding The People’s needs opting instead to use America’s great power of wealth to fully-fund trillions for the rich, the corporations and special interests.

Congress Mind Games: What About Inflation?

It is a myth that if we increase the money supply, runaway inflation will destroy our economy. Interesting how each time the GOP awarded themselves trillions no one heard a word about inflation before, during or after trillions left the barn.

Because voters have been mislead by Congress into believing they run our government like a household budget, it’s difficult for many to realize the implications of running our government as the fiat government it is. Voters have been horsewhipped by Congress into believing our grandchildren are going to have to pay for our borrowing sins, and that’s why Congress doesn’t have enough money for what you want. It’s virtually counter-intuitive for the average voter to believe increased federal spending means bad times surely ahead when it comes time to pay the piper.

Interestingly enough, America doesn’t need a “Piper” to pay or borrow money from, much less owe money to. Critics of interest-free federal spending cite inflationary warnings in response to the mention of interest-free federal spending; by definition, inflation occurs when production is insufficient to meet supply demands; fortunately, in the 21st century America doesn’t have that problem. U.S. worker production levels are the highest in the world working longer hours than most societies with fewer benefits and lower life expectations. Not one Congressperson has ever uttered a single word about inflationary concerns whenever they propose and pass trillion dollar tax breaks and defense dept. spending bills.

Never forget approx. 75% of GDP is produced by the American worker spending their dollars into the U.S. economy; never forget the American people not only deserve fiat funds but are the very reason our economy enjoys the highest production output in the world. The American people own our currency production and Congress must reflect that fact very soon, lest they be cast aside.

The Incredible Benefits of Fully-funding States With Federal Dollars

Local programs and local needs are usually underfunded due to the state’s inherent need to balance their budget; we can solve the problem of underfunding by funding these local programs with federal dollars. Fully-funding all 50 states and territories with federal fiat dollars would solve problems heretofore deemed “unsolvable.”

What Would Economic Justice Look Like?

Economic justice is measured by the individual’s access to home ownership, fully-paid healthcare, education and nutrition.

Is economic injustice racist? Yes. Not only is economic injustice racist, it’s also classist. So what do you think economic justice would look like?

On the face of it, economic justice should be a state of financial stability for every American which reflects the net worth of America.

The Great White Establishment gets nervous when people start using the terms “economic justice” and “equality” in the same sentence, since economic justice and equality denote the politics of addition and subtraction.

“How Much Money Does Our Government have?”

Bill Maher asked Bernie Sanders, “How much money does our government have? Are we about to run out of money?” Bernie did not answer Bill’s question and quickly changed the subject. Congressmen and women do not like it whenever anyone asks them, “How much money does our government have? Are we about to run out of money?” Because they know they will provide a bogus explanation or no explanation at all. Why is that? Congress has been lying to the American people for decades telling Americans Congress manages our money like a household budget. Nothing could be further from the truth. The truth is Congress borrows money from the Federal Reserve who creates money OUT OF THIN AIR with a few keystrokes of a Federal Reserve computer. Did you know that? It is absolutely TRUE.

How Do We Pay For What We Want?

Understanding the reality our Congress enjoys a constitutional right to create money out of thin air, the progressive plan is to NOT BORROW MONEY from the Federal Reserve but instead to exercise Congress’ right to create legal tender and deposit said tender DIRECTLY INTO A U.S. GOVERNMENT BANK ACCOUNT AT THE U.S. TREASURY DEPT., INTEREST-FREE.

Then we draw funds from that account to fund our progressive agenda.

Because voters have been lied to by their favorite Congressperson, too many voters incorrectly believe Congress runs our government like a household budget.

What About Inflation?

It is a myth that if we increase the money supply, inflation will destroy our economy. Interesting how each time the GOP awarded themselves trillions no one heard a word about inflation before, during or after trillions left the barn.

What Would Federal Income Tax Justice Look Like?

The sum total of all Federal taxes collected (approx. $600 billion annually) do not come near the amount required to fund government operations. Understanding UTR means understanding how much federal taxes the poor, middle-class and small businesses pay each year. Half of Americans earn only $40,000 a year or less, but pay approx. $266 billion annually in federal taxes. We must remove that federal tax burden from that group of workers. Further, we must raise the top corporate tax rate from 20% up to 55% on all corporations doing business in America with assets over $250 million.
