National Right to Work lady just called about fillibuster reform.

Wants me to call my Senators and ask them to stop Sen. Harry Reid. I'm for reform but afraid it could one day bite us in the ass.

3. Yeah, 'majority rule' is dangerous ...

... much better to operate under a 'tyranny of the minority'.

Come on.

Democracy isn't about getting only the outcomes you (I mean that collectively) want.

If the Repuglicans win a majority sometime in the far distant future, then, yes, they should be able to pass what they want in the Senate, too.

5. It didn't bite us in the ass for the first 200 years of the Senate.

Why should it start biting now?
