Ginsburg is one of the court’s most liberal members, but she’s already 85 years old, and court watchers were hoping that she’d vacate her seat before she is forced to resign from the court because of ill health.
Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Sunday said she wants to keep her Supreme Court seat for “at least five more years.”
“I’m now 85,” Ginsburg said Sunday in New York at a production about late Justice Antonin Scalia called “The Originalist,” CNN reported. “My senior colleague, Justice John Paul Stevens, he stepped down when he was 90, so think I have about at least five more years.”
Ginsburg cited “good behavior” and the lack of term limits as reasons why she intends to remain on the bench into the foreseeable future.
“You can’t set term limits, because to do that you’d have to amend the Constitution,” she said. “Article 3 says … we hold our offices during good behavior … And most judges are very well behaved.”
And this has caused a major celebration amongst the liberals in our country and some of them even went a step further to offer their organs so that she can still be alive in five years time!
is there a way to change my organ donor status to “please give Ruth Bader Ginsburg dibs on these?”

Mark Dice reminded them given the fact how Trump is doing his job is more obvious than ever that in 2023 he will run this country!
85-year-old Ruth Bader Ginsburg says she hopes to stay on the Supreme Court for another five years. That means Trump will have to wait until 2023 to nominate her replacement. That’s not that bad, I guess. At least that person will help keep SCOTUS conservative until 2063.

A Justice who openly attacks a political figure shows their bias and as such must step aside…as any decision that they are involved with from then on is now considered poisoned.
But even if she continues in 2023 she will still be replaced by a conservative and the Supreme Court will stay into conservative hands for years to come!
