You mean "which party will filibuster everything so that nothing gets accomplished?"

I'm guessing it will be either the Republicans or the Democrats.

Well it should be the party who gets the most votes, but I guess we will go with the party that gets the most votes counted for them.

Well, if we're talking the House it's not always the party that gets the most votes. In 2012 Democrats got more votes than Republicans but still ended up with less seats. Thanks, Gerry!

Son, if the Republicans win the majority in the House and Senate, the filibuster is dead.

republicans won't take a majority and democrats cannot be said to control anything.

I was just going to say, "the same old corporations." I do, however, appreciate your attention to detail.

Ned Stark: no one.

republicans won't take a majority and democrats cannot be said to control anything.




All of this silliness aside, I'd like to see a clear and permanent split in the GOP between the evil bastards who the demands of the few billionaires ahead of everyone else, and the crazy fools who think Jesus wants them to punch queers and women wearing pants.

And then, after about 10 years of this, I'd like to see a split in the Democratic Party between the evil bastards who MOSTLY put the needs of a few billionaires ahead of everyone else, and the right thinking progressives who understand history, economics and world events. I'd probably be to the left of all of these parties, but at least the country would have a fighting chance.

At least 90% of them will be reelected year after year after year.

This is called democracy.

Please - you can't "control" congress any more than you can tame the wind! It's a rebel, a loner, a free spirit. A maverick, a strong independent woman, a sovereign citizen.
