The Nuclear Option: Misplaced Conservative Outrage
By Lester Jackson, Ph.D.
The filibuster has not prevented tyranny. Few understand this better than crime victims, who know that the filibuster never stopped the appointment of judicial tyrants whose notion of “justice” is to torture victims for the benefit of violent criminals. The war against victims is but one example of pervasive tyranny. Others include quotas, and the assault s on religion, property and health care. Republicans have failed tragically to meaningfully oppose tyranny, and often have enabled it. If RINOs are not replaced by a genuine opposition party, nothing can save the Constitution – or the representative democracy and freedoms that are the heritage of this country.
