The "Filibuster" issue has been enough to make ALL OF US want to puke- no matter which side you come down on.
What happen to the PEOPLE having the power in this country? "Minority rights" has NOTHING to do with MAJORITY RULES in legislation. The LOSERS of elections are just that- the LOSERS! This is why voting and elections are SO important. At this point- it leaves the most dedicated mumbling and asking themselves- WHY BOTHER? Our Constitution has been TRAMPLED by judges for YEARS! NO- DECADES! Now it is being trampled by our ELECTED OFFICIALS. I am SICK of it.
Our judges tell our juries that they MUST find a person guilty if they believe the defendant broke the law, even if they disagree with the law. NOT TRUE! Our judges no longer look to the Constitution to determine findings, but rather look for ANY AVAILABLE MENTAL HOOP to JUSTIFY THEIR OWN AGENDA. NOW- the SENATE has started the same practice. The Constitution and Will of the People have become OBSTACLES in a movement to CHANGE the United States, not preserve it.
I decided to email Senator Frist and urge him to force the team of dwarfs that decided to try and disenfranchise the American Voters to take a stand and vote. Their "deal" does NOT represent the WILL OF THE PEOPLE. It is time to stand up before we lose our voice in Congress.
A related pièce de résistance by Ben Shapiro outlines the winners and losers in this pie-throwing fiasco. A worthwhile editorial, indeed (¶ RWNJ).
