President Barack Obama (D-Kenya) nominated who he wanted to put
on the USSC. The Republican Senate refused to even allow a hearing
to be held. After the presidential election, when President Donald
Trump (R-Russia) nominated who he wanted to put on the USSC, the
Republican Senate immediately granted a hearing to be held, and
wanted the full Senate to vote on confirmation immediately.
Without a filibuster rule, this country becomes less of a
democratic constitutional republic, and more of an autocracy.
This would not be a good thing. For anybody.
And yet, that is exactly what is happening today.
A one-party state. Republican president nominates, a compliant
Republican Senate gives its rubber stamp approval, and we are no
better than the old USSR.
