  •  the idea that the Republicans (none)
    could get away with the nuke. They can't. It's one among many assumptions being made along this thread to justify what people think. I agree with parts of what you said, but the assumption that the Republicans could get rid of the fillabuster isn't one of the points with which I agree. However, this being said, I think a lot of these things we are reading here are really justification for a strategy and designed to quell certain elements of the party rather than deal in honesty. It's like when people say we can't win this- how would they know- what is the mainstream? but, they think they know that, and work from those assumptions
    •  Well whatever polls say (none)
      The republicans can overcome a fillibuster by going nuclear.  And I believe they can make the Democrats look bad as they do it.  Then there is nothing to stop any other appointment.

      We lost at the ballot box.  It's time to take our mediciine.  I don't like it either.  But maybe a short history of the role of the USSC from 2000-2020 will convince future generations of Americans to actually get out and vote.

      •  I believe that the sky is now red (none)
        that doesn't mean that's proof that the sky is red. You remind me of one of my friends, an indie leaning conservative guy. Nice guy (well except he complains a lot) but he thinks just because he thinks, that means its true too. you haven't backed up your claim of having a special insight into the american people. all you have backed up is how you feel. that's not a very useful source of strategy here because its clear that what you feel  is best on fear, or what someone coinied as the battered liberal syndrome. we will fail, because we try. which of course, guarantees that you will fail.
