Even though the MSM, the democrats and those against protecting US citizens are claiming that 2 Senators stopped a power grab, it was really 52. Half of the Senate plus Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin saved us by voting not to kill the filibuster.
Harry Reid threw the nuclear switch on voting in Justices. Not long afterwards in 2016, republicans took control of the Senate where they are approved, and the left is still (
bitching) licking it’s wounds that the Supreme Court is (supposedly) 6-3 conservative. Recent verdicts show that Roberts has sided with the liberal judges on important issues like Obamacare by calling it a tax. We still suffer with that albatross. I just went through the process of getting insurance and Healthcare.gov is just another unnecessary layer of red tape that doesn’t really help anyone other than politicians.
Most politicians care most about getting power and staying in power. The two “rebel” democrats risked being outcasts in the next election by doing what was right for the people of the USA. They protected citizens from the government so we don’t have to do it. (see my 2nd amendment post a few down from here)
They should be hailed as hero’s for keeping us a Republic (no Pelosi and Shumer, we didn’t hurt the democracy because we are a Republic) rather than a monarchy.
The House and maybe the senate should flip this November and it also protected the democrats from being run over by a Republican majority, even if it is not 60 members.
Most of all, the ability to stop power grabbing legislature, like the voting act keeps the country protected by those who want to rule us instead of govern us. That was the intent of the current voter protection act, which only protects those in power to keep them there.
So, we escaped that one, but the spawn of Satan who are in charge won’t stop. There will be another power grab soon. I hope that the election cycle, which causes all candidates to lie about being moderate will stop the idiocy. If not, more like Manchin and Sinema will have to grow a spine.
I think that by being true to the people, that Manchin gets re-elected. Sinema faces a state of people less educated on history and what is right vs wrong, but I would vote for her for doing her job.
