End of the American Dream
This is not a normal election, because if Democrats are able to win the White House, the Senate and the House of Representatives in November, they will end the two party system as we know it today. Yes, there will still be two major political parties, but one will essentially be in permanent control. In recent weeks, there has been so much chatter on the left about ending the filibuster in the Senate permanently, about granting statehood to Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico, and about “packing” the Supreme Court. Collectively, these three moves would basically make it exceedingly difficult for Republicans to ever become the majority party again. I know that this is an extreme statement to make, but I think that you will agree with me by the time this article is over.
Let’s talk about the filibuster in the Senate and statehood for D.C. and Puerto Rico first.
