... I can imagine what Republicans might do if/when they win a Senate majority and there's no filibuster. However, if we don't act, if we don't use this Article and/or amend the filibuster to pass the two voting rights acts we'll have *nothing* with which to stop them excluding us from government permanently. We'll have nothing to counteract their voter suppression laws and their ability to have partisans overturn elections.

It seems like increasingly I am more shocked by Democrat complacency than I am with Republican lying and treachery. How naive and gullible do Democrats have to be to miss where this is going? I fear we are only a couple of years away from complete Republican domination of the US government. Elections will either be orchestrated theatre before placing the next Republican in place or they will be eliminated entirely and only Washington Republicans will be allowed to vote for the next Representative or Senator.

But it looks like the majority Democrats are going to twiddle their thumbs and argue amongst themselves rather than save the country or their party.
