Its that dire.
The new voter suppression laws in many states (especially those that give power to state legislatures to oversee elections) are the entire ballgame.
The only way to stop those new state laws is with new federal laws that vacate them.
And the only way to get those new federal laws is to end the filibuster.
So, Manchin and Sinema change their positions on the filibuster or its over and democracy will die and a full out autocracy will take over.
Its not enough for those sane Republicans that dont buy into the Stop the Steal nonsense to say they are still Republicans or Independents trying to save or heal the current Republican Party.
We are in crisis mode with The two Macs in charge of the two Congressional bodies Repub caucus. They have bought into stop the steal and voter suppression moves.
Barring a last minute conversion by Manchin and a few other Dem Senators who are against ending the filibuster, the 2022 midterms could become the Shit$how to end all Shit$hows.
Sane Republicans have to vote with us in 2022 for the Dems to hold the House and pad the Senate majority a little for there to be any hopes at saving our democracy.
After that, they can rebuild or remake the GOP to their hearts content.
The current Republicans have shown us.
They do not believe in Democracy.
They can not be negotiated with.
They must be driven out of office.
I used to really enjoy him especially on Nicolle Wallaces show.
I had wondered why he was never on Morning Joe anymore.
Always thought he leaned right but was basically a straight shooter.
I dont think he did.
I do think he has them ready, if needed, for himself and his family members.
