    Oh really? And how many candidates who ran in the last election campaigned on the filibuster?
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    the voters LIKED the filibusterers, overwhelmingly, gave em the most house pickups since '38, the most state reps and legs in modern history, 10 gubs, 6 senators...

    Re: Could Senate Dems Nuke the Filibuster?

    republicans ran on OUSTING NANCY PELOSI

    on REPEALING OBAMACARE

    on dealing with SPENDING, DEBT, even TAXES (did you see barack hussein obama ENDORSE the bush tax cuts---LOL!)

    you're actually asking ME what comprised the campaign?

    where were you?

    meanwhile, the voters LIKED the filibusterers, we were RICHLY REWARDED for all the NO's

    maybe you should ASK YOURSELF why

    sorry

Moreover, given that the founding fathers provided for a process to amend the constitution and that process was followed, I submit the result was, in fact, consistent with the founding fathers intentions

    The amendment was by the book, the issue isn't that the Founding Fathers would object to the Amendment, it's that their wisdom in not having said Amendment was correct.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    most state reps and legs in modern history

    10 gubs, 6 senate seats...

    The founding fathers intended for the States to pick the Senators and the Lobbyists to keep their grubby hands off our representatives. Everything since then has been a mockery of democracy and nudging closer to fascism. Until we have representation again I'm for anything that slows down the lobbyists.
