    Every single piece of legislation you listed passed the Senate, with plenty of help from Democrats.

    If your argument is that we need to keep the filibuster so that Democrats have protection against a raging conservative majority, you couldn't have picked a worse argument.  You just proved how worthless is a filibuster — when Democrats don't use it, and should.

    Shirley Chisholm was right. Our Republic is in deep trouble.
