    For the past few decades I have only voted for Democrats, but I am not a Democrat.  The Republicans are like dangerous predatory animals.  The Democrats are like soft fluffy puddie cats.  However, if they show a little spine on filibuster reform, I might change my mind.

      Nah they just play this part in the political kabuki show.  In reality both sides get what their owners want and it isn't democratic governance or even checks or balance. The Democrat's are complicit as they constantly take off the table all the remedies provided in our constitution and all the checks that get in the way of their anti-democratic agenda.

      The table is then reset with bogus bargains and compromises that the Dems. have offered up. NDAA, FISA, our 'entitlements' our basic universal laws our inalienable rights, our common good, a decent equitable economy fit to live and work in, you name it they slap it on the table. Then they haggle over the degrees of harm and damage they can implement. All our votes do nowadays is ratify the by-partisan anti-democratic agenda that is behind the smoke and mirrors of this bad kabuki.

      Where's my habeas corpus, Senator Levin?
