    either they decide like adults to go back to a Draconian definition and very limited use of the filibuster or we need to admit the end of democratic rule.

    If the Republicans win, the country is done from a "Democracy" perspective.

    If the opposition party can block everything in the Senate, they don't even need a majority in the House. All those that have the tendancy to criticize the Dems and the Prez, best think twice in 2014.

    We need the majority in the House and 60 Democratic Senators, problem solved. Then we can get back to (start) solving America's problems.

      filibuster rule, we just need to go back to a filibuster being an actual filibuster.  I think requiring a filibuster to actually involve standing there and talking the whole time to be a minimal change and quite reasonable.

      You have watched Faux News, now lose 2d10 SAN.
