I see a way to stop all of this obstructionism in the house.   I see a way to dish it out and maybe just maybe get that filibuster reform through.  Who has the guts to pull
a Mr. Smith goes to Washington to filibuster the obstructionists of the republican legislators.  Stand for days and days about how America heard nothing about Debts under a Republican congress and president.  Invasion of countries and unfunded mandates and unfunded wars !!!

I would love to see when that legislator can't go on, another one take up the floor and proceed where the last Dem left off and go on for days.  It would make news.  It would raise eyebrows and it would show that the democratic party has pushed for filibuster reform but if they don't want it.. Here it is baby.   Along with some real truth !  Deal with it.  

I wish our side would stand and I mean literally stand for the American people and let the republicans own the destruction they are dishing out to the American people.   Read every name who voted against America.  Tell the truth and tell it without ceasing.
People could see the truth be unveiled before their eyes and Hannity and Rush could not lie about what was happening live on the Legislative Body Floor in real time for every American to see.  Who has the guts?

Then maybe filibuster reform will be discussed and maybe irrational people will get a little more rational.

Bring on a real filibuster.. Mr. Smith style !

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
