Today, Harry Reid, Senate Majority Leader for the Imperialistic Democratic Party just destroyed the 225-year-old right of filibuster.
Three Democrats, including liberal Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan, recognized that Reid will rue this day and voted to keep the Senate the Senate. Speaking on the Senate floor, Levin even quoted the late ultra-liberal "Lion of the Senate," Teddy Kennedy: "Neither the Constitution, nor Senate rules, nor Senate precedents, nor American history provide any justification for selectively nullifying the use of the filibuster."
Reid had to resort to chicanery and sleazy tactics to amend Senate rules, violating Standing Rule XXII, which requires a two-thirds majority.
In today’s remarks about the filibuster changes, The World’s Most Dangerous Community Organizer said, “All too often we've seen a single senator or a handful of senators choose to abuse arcane procedural tactics to unilaterally block bipartisan compromises or to prevent well-qualified, patriotic Americans from filling critical positions of public service in our system of government.”
Reid’s love affair with and blind allegiance to TWMDCO clears the way for his radical, progressive and anti-constitution agenda. Once a judge is appointed they are there for life and it will further affirm his socialistic/Marxist agenda to remake the courts.
It also points to the fact that The Imperialistic Democratic Party had to resort to the “nuclear option”, something Reid said he would never do:
“Ultimately, this is about removing the last check in Washington against complete abuse of power, the right to extended debate.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.4238, 4/26/05)
“The world is watching us. We should not be changing the rules by breaking the rules. We should not do that.” (Sen. Reid, Congressional Record, S.4614, 5/9/05)
