Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING can be sorted out if we get two more Senators.

We need 2 more than we currently have. Those two will negate Manchin and Sinema. We also have to keep the house.

Then it should go like this;

1) Do away with the filibuster
2) Immediately pass the various voting rights acts bills. I understand one of them includes provisions to do away with Gerrymandered districts and will instantly make illegal and wipe out all the voting restriction bills so far introduced in the various states. This will make voting MUCH easier. This simple act will mean fewer Republican controlled state houses and Trumpy will have been the last Republican President for 50 years at least.
3) If #2 happens, the Democratic vote swells massively.
4) EXPAND THE SUPREME COURT TO 13 SEATS! The legislation is approved and Joe picks 4 liberal judges who get approved by the majority Senate. Investigate and if appropriate, impeach Thomas, Barret and Kavanaugh, the latter two for lying during their confirmations and the former for having a criminal for a wife and being stuck in the 1800’s.
5) Codify Reproductive Choice. (This is a winning issue)
6) Remove Cannabis from the Federal Schedule I and make it federally legal for recreational usage. (This is also a winning issue)
7) Repeal Citizens United and institute public funding of elections.


I could go on with a wish list (like repeal the Taft-Hartley Act, giving real power back to organized labor) but the first 5 above could happen within weeks after the new Senators are sworn in.

We need at least;
Val Demings of Florida to beat Rubio
John Fetterman of Pennsylvania to beat the New Jersey carpetbagger
And Warnock has to kick that imbecile Walker’s ass all the way back to Texas.

THIS COULD ALL HAPPEN.

It must, for if we lose in November, we have lost more than just an election.

If Republicans take control of the Senate do you think they would still be OK with eliminating the Filibuster?

If the Rs regain the majority in the Senate, the filibuster will again become a sacred thing to Ds, hidden somewhere under the shadow of a penumbra of the Constitution.

Yes, because permanent one-party rule has worked so well everywhere it's been tried.

Strange that!  Even given that it would pass with bipartisan support.  :-)

Got to warn a guy. I just laughed coffee out of my nose. That was gold Jerry, comedy gold.

10. This is THE major reason why DOJ must be extra careful with what they share with the public,

and why the J6 Committee should become more public with their investigation .

The J6 Committee has done an excellent job swaying the voters away from MAGA, and they could probably do more of the same. But DOJ arresting or indicting Trump could galvanize MAGA and create conditions where Democrats would lose both houses. At this point in time, any talk of DOJ arresting or indicting Trump is just plain crazy.

Thanks for admitting it is all political.

"Both houses" Hmm, there are two chambers of congress, but not two houses. I'm convinced these idiots were stand-in's on Idiocracy in the House of Representin'. "Georgia's in Florida, dumbass".

Maybe I'm being all nitpicky.
NAMBLA is a left-wing organization.

There's a reason why patriotism is considered a conservative value. Watch a Tea Party rally and you'll see people proudly raising the American flag and showing pride in U.S. heroes such as Thomas Jefferson. Watch an OWS rally and you'll see people burning the American flag while showing pride in communist heroes such as Che Guevera. --Bob, from some news site

That could lead to things being 'sorted out' alright.

Just not the way they're thinking.

Unfortunately, republicans have a lot more seats to defend. Everything else in that post is wishful thinking, and in some cases, possibly on shaky legal ground.

EDIT: Maybe it's not as bad for republicans as I thought, but democrats gaining seats in the senate is possible.

Maybe from one of Obama's 7 extra states.

It worked out so well when choosing the SCOTUS pick, eh?

I imagine, from the same place their facts originate...
