Democrats are just one rule elimination away from totally reshaping the United States.
They have the White House. They have the House. But in the Senate, the filibuster prevents them from ramming every crazy bill through.
(Remember, they want to remake our voting systems, outlaw AR-15s, erase pro-life laws, and jack taxes up to the moon).
Only two Democrats in the Senate refuse to get rid of the filibuster. One of them is Kyrsten Sinema from Arizona.
The left keeps pressuring her to buckle. But she had a strong answer for them.
“So you’re not going to budge on the filibuster?”

Ouch. Here’s her full quote from The Epoch Times:
The filibuster “is a tool that protects the democracy of our nation, rather than allowing our country to ricochet wildly every two to four years back and forth between policies,” Sinema told reporters in Arizona after touring the border with Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas).
Liberal reporters pestered Sen. Sinema over her policy to defend the filibuster. Even the media wants it gone, so their liberal buddies in D.C. can do whatever they want.
But her response was not only accurate and constitutional, but it put Joe Biden, Chuck Schumer, and those leftist reporters to shame.
She explained the filibuster is a tool that protects our democracy. Without it, we’d swing back and forth every few years, when the majority changes hands.
And that’s exactly right. The filibuster gives the minority party a voice in the Senate. It is supposed to force the Senate to actually work on bipartisan legislation.
The kind of legislation that everyone can agree on. Legislation that won’t be eroded or erased in two to four years.
But ever since Obama, it seems, Democrats have given up trying to negotiate or compromise with Republicans.
Even now, Republicans are trying to work with Biden on an infrastructure bill. They want bipartisan solutions.
That was much more than what Pelosi or Schumer ever did for Trump.
Without the filibuster, they’d be no democracy in Congress. Thankfully, at least a few Democrats see that.
Do you stand with Sinema to protect the filibuster?
- Sen. Sinema once again defended her stance on protecting the filibuster.
- She explained it was a tool for protecting our democracy.
- The filibuster is the one rule that prevents Joe Biden from becoming a dictator.
