7. The filibuster is like a double-edged sword;

with a Democratic president, it can stall progressive agendas. With a Republican president, it can save us from going back to the Gilded Ages. With that said, I still believe we should ditch the filibuster system for good. It is beyond ludicrous that the framers gave the minority votes so much power. It's as if the desires of the minority are prioritized over those of the majority. I thought this was a country where majority rules.
