If Democrats reform the Supreme Court, abolish the filibuster, and grant statehood to our disenfranchised populations, then it will open the door to the progressive ideas becoming the law of the land. Once we reform the institutions, we can remind the GOP of the wise words passed along by Leader McConnell: Elections have consequences.
After Amy (blessed be the fruit) got nominated to the highest court of the land, I felt discouraged. However, reading your work is lifting me up. If the Democrats get elected, they must use that power to get things done. So many people are losing hope. We have to abolish the filibuster so we can actually get things done. I also agree that we should grant statehood to DC and Puerto Rico. Do you think the Dems should increase the number of justices or is there a different way I'm not seeing? Thanks so much for sharing your writing.
