Democrat Senate candidate Mandel Barnes, who so desperately wants to beat Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI) in the upcoming midterms, revealed quite a bit during a Friday night debate that shows just how radical this guy truly is.
According to Breitbart, Barnes admitted that he believes the U.S. Supreme Court needs to be politicized and have term limits.
Barnes told the moderator in response to a question regarding how he would increase public confidence in the high court: "[I] support term limits for Supreme Court Justices. These should not be lifetime appointments."
The Democratic candidate joins a handful of radical progressives in the Senate who would undoubtedly change the Supreme Court to their liking.

Sen. Johnson, who any honest observer would be forced to admit won the debate with Barnes by a country mile, responded to the same question with a vastly different outlook.
"The reason people are complaining is because they are leftists themselves. There is biased media," Johnson said. "They don't like it when you have a Supreme Court that has conservative justices who actually just apply the law rather than try to alter it."
He added: "So I'm utterly opposed to judicial activists, and that of course … that is what the liberal press likes – an activist court."
Johnson has recently increased his margin of lead against Barnes in the final weeks before the midterms. Notably, Barnes had led Johnson until recently, and he's probably losing now that more people in Wisconsin are realizing just how radically progressive he is.
