is the FILIBUSTER they wield over us.
Apparently none of you know what a filibuster is, because when I mention it, there are never any replies, except nosplit once said it was in the Constitution. It isn't.
We saw it in the Senate just yesterday -- 90% of Americans in every poll want universal gun background checks -- 54% of the Senate voted for it, but it still failed to pass.
How can that be?? The republican FILIBUSTER.
90% of the Dems in the Senate voted for it.
90% of the Repubs in the Senate voted AGAINST it.
Is that democracy? is that the American government you want? Seems more like the Politburo to me.
The FILIBUSTER is NOT in the Constitution.
What future issues will we be unable to trust Congress with?
Why isn't a 90% issue an automatic win for the people?
