2. Modest reforms are good

The Founding Father vigorously supported limits on the majority
because they knew it would lead to tyranny. So curbing the
minority must be done slowly, incrementally. I do think both
parties will come to regret severe restrictions. Democrats can
slip into the minority, remember?

And curbing filibuster at the beginning of debate is a great idea.
At least debate the issues. Right now we're only having grandstanding
by Mitch McConnell with an occasional barb from Harry Reid.
