A Dead Filibuster? A Real Democracy? Get Outta Here...

      Im not a lawyer, but if it is legally sound to repeal the filibuster without 67 votes, then it should be done, even if doing so is politically unpopular.  This mind-blowing article in American Prospect suggests precisely this can be done, if the action is taken directly after the new Senate is sworn in.  Consider the impact this would have - we could return to having a democracy which functions on majority rule, and not minority dictate; a democracy like the one so meticulously created by our founders.  That would give me goosebumps.  READ THE ARTICLE.
