    a GOP Senate.

    Don't be.

    If we get a GOP controlled Senate, then we get one because that is what the American People voted for.

    It is no more our place to seek to undermine the Will of the People, than it has been for the Republicans to do just that.

    If you want to make sure that the other side doesn't get to make all the laws, then get some BETTER Democrats elected.

    America gets the government it deserves ... and it's up to us not to use tricks and rules to overturn the majority, but to make sure we are the majority.

    Remember also ... The Senate does not make laws ... it requires both the House AND the President .... and SCOTUS ... to agree.

    We do not forgive our candidates their humanity, therefore we compel them to appear inhuman
