Just because the radical Democrats want to get rid of the filibuster because it favors them in the current administration doesn’t mean it’s a good idea. It doesn’t mean that all Democrats will vote for it or support it.
Vice President Kamala Harris is one of the radicals trying to force the Democrat party to align with the Biden Administration’s radical policies and suggestions.
It is all about voting rights. The left believes that because voting is a constitutional right, you can’t make laws requiring voter identification. When voting began, there was no Division of Motor Vehicles or vehicles that would require a driver’s license to operate. It wasn’t exactly an issue at the time. Now, there are 330 million people in the United States that share similar names, and at the same time, gender is going out the window, so excuse us if it could get a little bit difficult to tell if someone is who they say they are.
Voter verification existed long before a driver’s license was even available to print. Only white male landowners could vote when the first votes were cast. There had to be a verification process to prove you owned land, were White, and were a male. While the racist standards aren’t applied anymore, there’s still an expectation to verify someone’s identity.
There’s also a problem with voting by mail or any other way other than in person. It’s funny that the Democrats have no problem when people stand in outrageous lines to get tested for COVID-19 and show their identification. Still, when it comes to voting, everyone must stay away from each other because of science. And the best way to follow science is to mail in a ballot or drop it in a box that’s unguarded until it’s picked up.
There’s no natural way Democrats can hold a majority after the 2022 midterm elections. Republican candidates are much more popular than their Democrat counterparts. The Virginia gubernatorial election was proof of that.
In a speech in Atlanta, Harris said, “We do not know when we will have this opportunity again. Senate Republicans have exploited arcane rules to block these bills.”
No, Harris, it’s the filibuster. When one party gets a majority in the House, Senate, and Presidency, the other party has the right and responsibility to use the filibuster to make sure ridiculous partisan laws aren’t passed.
Harris also said, “And let us be clear: The Constitution of the United States gives the Congress the power to pass legislation. And nowhere does the Constitution give a minority the right to block legislation unilaterally.”
One individual can block legislation regardless of whether they’re in the minority or majority. Everyone votes, and every vote counts. That’s how it works. Harris might need to go back to high school civics class to find out the true meaning of democracy. No wonder she’s one of the least popular vice presidents this country has ever seen.
Manchin isn’t supportive of getting rid of the filibuster. Neither are a lot of Democrats and Republicans. Harris needs to realize that her opinion isn’t the majority.
