Schumer Vows To Destroy Democracy As We Know It

If any Republican even dared to alter Senate rules to pass their legislative agenda the Democrats and their mainstream media operatives would go on a tirade the likes of which no one could ignore.

Fear mongering and hysteria would be an understatement if Republicans gave Democrats the same ultimatum launched by Majority Leader Chuck Schumer.

On Monday, the leading Senate Democrat promised that he will push a vote on changing the Senate rules by January 17, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, if Republicans continue to oppose his party’s voting rights bill.

Schumer also sent a letter on Monday to the members of the Senate Democratic Caucus regarding the issue.

“The fight for the ballot is as old as the Republic. Over the coming weeks, the Senate will once again consider how to perfect this union and confront the historic challenges facing our democracy,” Schumer wrote.

Meanwhile, it’s Chuck Schumer and his Democrats who are seeking the total destruction of U.S. democracy as we know it. They are the party willing to federalize elections, stealing the States’ ability to run and regulate their own voting systems.

In addition, Schumer connected the new vow to the events of January 6, 2021, at the U.S. Capitol Building.

Schumer’s reference to changing the rules includes more than only voting rights legislation. Senate Democrats have increasingly discussed efforts to end the filibuster, a longstanding rule that requires a 60-vote supermajority to pass most legislation among the Senate’s 100 members.

However, making a rules change would require all 50 Democrats siding with the party. In a 50-50 tie vote, the vice president is given the opportunity to vote. So far, both West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema have voiced their opposition to the effort.

The filibuster has held back many of President Joe Biden’s major legislative efforts since he has taken office. Despite controlling the House and 50 members in the Senate, the 60-vote requirement has slowed the Build Back Better bill and other progressive bills passed by Democrats in the House.

We are in a war to keep the fabric of America intact. It’s men like Chuck Schumer who are willing to destroy it, not the Republicans.
