Political: Dont eliminate our filibuster
Republicans are going for the ultimate power grab by trying to silence the voice of Democrats in the United States Senate. They want to change the rules and eliminate the filibuster, which has protected the voice of the minority for more than 200 years.
This abuse of power would eliminate debate and dissent in Congress, giving President Bush a blank check to push the most radical agenda and extreme judges. It would put our most fundamental values at risk by eliminating the checks and balances that keep our democracy strong.
I urge our senators to stand up and protect our democracy by opposing the GOP power grab. This is what I think and we most definitely need it known
