“What we need and what we want is to moralize politics, not to politicize morals.”
Karl R. Popper, The Open Society and Its Enemies
Since 1869 the number of Federal Appelate Districts has grown from 9 to 13.
With staunch opposition from anti-American Congressional representatives, Supreme Court has been made into a farce. Through lies and impeachable offenses such as perjury, The proponents of intolerance have managed cement a durable majority of Justices who scorn precedent and rule of law.
To counter this travesty of justice, SCOTUS13 is a strong proponent of judicial ethics reform and Supreme Court expansion to 13 justices. This will empower the Court to return to a place of propriety and respect in the short term and create a quick process for revoking advise and consent of the Senate for future Supreme Court nominees who choose to lie during their confirmation hearings.

Since then, United States of America has grown by leaps and bounds, and the Judicial system has expanded to 13 Federal Appellate Districts, while the number of Supreme Court Justices has remained constant at 9. The Court must be expanded to 13 justices to account for Judicial growth.
