14. If they want to filibuster make them hold the floor

 

if they want to put a hold on something or someone, make them pin their name on it, limit the time of the hold.

It's like life time tenure on the Supreme Court, it works for progress once in a while but it usually is used to destroy change. Civil rights, anti-lynching laws were the subject of filibusters.

Bernie Sanders did it the right way.
