The Dems have used it.
I want it to be hard for the Government to expand their power.
The fillibuster makes it harder for the government to impose its power on the people.
No matter who is in power.
So elected official = government imposing its power on the people? Who do elected officials represent? (OK, who are they supposed
to represent). So you are saying that you want a Legislative and Executive Branch, elected by the people, to do as little as possible? Is that why people vote for someone...so they won't do anything?
Are you afraid of the concept of majority rule? Or just when it disagrees with your point of view?
