    E says:

    Democrats used the filibuster 328 times from 2019-2020. Was it racist and archaic then?

    E says:

    @tigerslap “Never argue with an idiot. They will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.” – Mark Twain. He made that quote special…just for you.

    tigerslap says:

    @E Correct, he is telling me not to argue with you, an idiot.

    Matthew Walton says:

    Well, given the fact that the Senate is fundamentally undemocratic (it represents states, not people), it really wasn’t any of those things. But look at it this way: If you’re lucky, your preferred party will have the ability to do whatever they want with just a simple majority in a few years. If that means taking us back to the Stone Age, well, I hope it will have been worth it.

    Robert Johnson says:

    Just a little bit of filibuster trivia: The record for the longest individual speech goes to South Carolina’s Strom Thurmond, at that time a Democrat, filibustered for 24 hours and 18 minutes against the Civil Rights Act of 1957. Biden praised segregationist Strom Thurmond as his ‘closest friend’ and Biden worked closely with his buddy to come up with a very racist 1994 crime bill. Biden himself had very segregationist ideas on busing in schools. So to answer your question… no it wasn’t racist then, but it was used by a racist or two.

    Blockchain Music says:

    @Matthew Walton noice, so you agree it should be correct then, that all the racist laws come into place, walls get built and and and, once a bad acting republican gets voted then? And you agree there should be no way the opposition then can fight against the injustice then?

    LET’S GO BRANDON.

    Kyle Jensen says:

    Weird how all the usual hysterical Left Wing automatons aren’t calling this a “danger to democracy” 🤔

    Matthew Walton says:

    Uh no, because a simple majority is still a majority, and hence democratic. The Senate is still fundamentally undemocratic, however, as is the Electoral College, and to some extent the gerrymandered and redistricted House.

    Blockchain Music says:

    @Matthew Walton yea hitler also came to power democratically, what point does that make? Hitler’s 3rd reich was a democracy, is that what you are trying to say?

    K Cook says:

    This is some scary stuff… Democrats have officially jumped off the deep end

    Carlos Lima says:

    For real

    I Am Your Unbiased God says:

    From 2019 to 2020, Democrats used the filibuster 328 times … Now they want to do away with it 🤣 Truly pathetic …

    Matthew Walton says:

    Hey, look at it this way: If you’re lucky, “your” party will be able to pass whatever they want with just a simple majority. Either way, democracy wins.

    Blockchain Music says:

    @Matthew Walton it is the steps of getting rid of democracy using the rules within democracy 🙂

    mark price says:

    Every democrat is on record opposing doing away with the filibuster ( when they were not in majority of course)…. Schumer, Biden, Booker..all of them saying they will fight any attempt to end it and how it will destroy the nation if we do. Just shameless shrills

    I Am Your Unbiased God says:

    @Matthew Walton I have no “party” 🤣 Anyone that globs on to this or that party doesn’t deserve to be called an American, because a real American doesn’t deal in absolutes … I despise Democrats and Republicans equally but for different reasons 🤣 From senator to representative, Trump to Biden, when a so-called leader fails in leadership, wallows in unethical activity or just flat-out breaks the law … a real American should call it out and not cherry-pick his or her outrage ☝ George Washington would know exactly how to handle fake-patriot/populist simpletons like Trump and geriatric/socialist-lite empty vessels like Biden …

    TruckerExile E says:

    Let’s go Brandon! I agree!

    R Groppi says:

    Let’s go Brandon!

    Tortomus says:

    Matthew Walton says:

    He won in 2020. What are you talking about? 🤦‍♂️

    Z says:

    What kinda rules cockblocks the simple majority. It’s a stupid rule where opposition will use it for deadlock

    Tortomus says:

    Just imagine for one second how everyone would react if Trump suggested doing something like this. Strange times eh.

    Tim Daugherty says:

    @Matthew Walton Proof? I knew not.

    Joe Scopelite says:

    He did! If doing away with the filibuster is what you mean..

    Michael Jordan says:

    @Matthew Walton what law is that you have a link let’s go Brandon

    Jp Young says:

    @Joe Scopelite did he sign it like democrat senators did in 2017 then say they are against it because they know their not going to do well in 2022 since dems have white house

    Jp Young says:

    @Joe Scopelite let’s go Brandon Trump 2024

    NPC-Masked-Karen says:

    *”Yes, I agree let’s go Brandon”* -Joe Brandon

    Rick Caldwell says:

    Who is Ray Epps? Why hasn’t he been arrested and charged?

    Matthew Walton says:

    I wish Biden put this much effort into passing Build Back Better BEFORE universal childcare, homecare, paid family/medical leave, Medicare expansion to including vision and dental, tuition-free community college, and lower prescription drug costs (like insulin) were stripped from the bill. 🤦‍♂️

    I’ve been struck by lightning 7 times , Once when I voted for Biden.

    Wayne Baker says:

    Roy Cleveland Sullivan (February 7, 1912 – September 28, 1983) was a United States park ranger in Shenandoah National Park in Virginia. Between 1942 and 1977, Sullivan was hit by lightning on seven occasions and survived all of them.

    kerk captain says:

    This is the first time I’ve seen a political speech where the whole crowd is ‘behind’ you.
