The Much-less-than-Supreme Court has to be retrofitted. It is unacceptable for a small group of brazenly partisan, pro-corporate selectees to dominate the daily existence of more than 300 million human beings. The Court simply does not represent the people nor our basic needs and interests. It has become a tool for the politically motivated manipulation of the law and hence of our lives.

There ought to be no more life-term appointments: 10-12 years is enough. No reappointments — to any vacant/vacated seat.

The Court's Citizens United decision has become a cancer. It has profoundly corrupted the electoral process. When the results of civic procedures — and the procedures themselves — are offered for auction, there is no democracy.

The Citizens United decision must be overturned/reversed/ deleted and never again re-introduced. It should be given no place in this nation's socio-political fabric. Democracy ought not to be on a perennial auction block.

With justice for all.
