Thr Senate has opposed logic. The Senate has opposed the majority os the people. The Senate represents someone, but not us.
Around 90% of the people support more background checks for gun purchases, but despite this the Senate has decided not to support them. The Senate has represented the lobbyists.
For how long will this charade of democracy be accepted? It's gone on far to long. Are democratic institutions enough? Or should we demand more?
I'm tired of the excuses. Commentators speak about protecting the minority. When it's convenient, some people say that we don't have a democracy, but a representative republic. When it's time to change the filibuster, they don't. Obviously the "representatives" are representing someone.
It's not only the gun control issue. We have a Democrat president offering to cut social security. He has the nerve to ask "Who are we here to represent?"
Mr. President, we know who you are there to represent. Haven't you bargained a tax hike for on many middle class people? Aren't you offering to cut social security? Aren't you proposing a cut to heating oil subsidies for the poorest among us? Have you proposed anything to fix our tax system which allows some of the largest corporations to not pay one cent of taxes? Come on Mr. President, who are you guys there to represent? I think you know the answer to that.
