Yes, I'm well aware that the media thinks Trump is the threat to democracy.  ::)

If the Democrats listen to this guy, they deserve to lose.

If 60 votes arenít needed for a Supreme Court Justice why should they be needed for other things?

Reid is the guy who started this mess. It should be 60 across the board.

Newt Gingrich is the one who started all the political polarization and undermining democratic norms. He did it in the House. The Senate Republicans followed.

I don't know about that. Politicians have been political the entire time. What rules did Gingrich change to force his agenda? I'm not saying you're wrong but I mean, the country has gone through wars due to politics so I find it hard to believe that Gingrich is the one who "started all the political polarization".

I've said for a long time that 90% should be needed to pass a new law and 10% needed to repeal an existing law.
