Senate Republicans Save Democracy From America’s Marxist Democrat Enemies — For Now

On Wednesday night, Senate Republicans blocked two Democrat measures intended to destroy American democracy for good, while ensuring Democrat electoral victory for the foreseeable future.  In short, Republicans have saved American democracy from Marxist Democrats, at least for the time being.

According to Breitbart:

The Senate voted 49-51 not to invoke cloture on the motion to concur in the House amendment to the Senate amendment to H.R. 5746. H.R. 5746, an unrelated NASA bill and the legislative vehicle for two voting rights bills, the Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act.

Democrats overwhelmingly voted for cloture, while Republicans voted in lockstep against the motion. Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) voted against the motion so that he could bring it up again.

Now that Republicans blocked the bill, Schumer could likely try to remove the legislative filibuster and replace it with a “talking filibuster.” The Senate requires 60 votes to invoke cloture and end debate on legislation, but the talking filibuster would require senators to continuously speak on the Senate floor to prevent a vote on the floor. If senators stop speaking, the Senate would only require 51 votes to pass legislation.

That’s right — Marxist Democrats tried to sneak their effort to steal elections in a completely unrelated measure.  But the attempt failed.

“Today, Chuck Schumer and Joe Biden led the left in an attempt to blow up the Senate rules to federalize elections. Washington Democrats want to silence Americans, ban voter ID, and take away Tennessee’s ability to draw our own congressional districts. States like Tennessee – not radicals in Washington — must remain in control of our elections,” Sen. Marsha Blackburn, R-Tenn., said after the vote.

“Senate Democrats are under no illusion that we face an uphill fight, especially when virtually every Republican has remained staunchly against every attempt to pass voting rights legislation. Win, lose or draw, we are going to vote,” Sen. Chuck “U.” Schumer, D-NY., said.

“For the last year, my Democratic colleagues have taken to the Senate floor … to argue that repealing the filibuster is restoring the vision the Founding Fathers intended for this deliberative body. My friends, that is simply not true,” Sen. Joe Manchin, D-WV, said.

“The United States Senate has never in 233 years been able to end debate on legislation with a simple majority vote,” he added.

For some time now, Marxist Democrats and their lying propagandists in the lying liberal media have tried to make us believe that Republicans are actually trying to keep people from voting.  Of course, that is a bald-faced lie, and they darn well know it.  What Republicans have been working to do, however, is ensure that only legal votes are cast and that elections are fair and honest, something Democrats seem to oppose.
