A former Democrat Senator of Alabama, Doug Jones, wants there to be a unified approach to voting reform.
That means making elections easier for Democrats to win, while getting a bunch of RINOs to lend them Senate votes.
None of this comes as a surprise.
What does, though, is this.
What this shows us is there could be 10 RINOs in the Senate if Jones is right.
That’s enough to hit the magic number of 60 votes, which would overcome the filibuster rules that effectively make the Senate majority 60 rather than 50.
If there are indeed 10 RINOs, Democrats have a 60-vote supermajority in the Senate.
We’d better hope Jones is exaggerating.
If not, we’ll all need to take a crash course in how to spot true America First candidates versus Establishment pawns.
Jones also made some other revealing comments.
We need to have a uniform set of standards on early voting, mail-in voting, all of those, absentee voting, all of those things where people think that is fraught with peril. Let’s get some uniform standards instead of this hodgepodge from around the country. If folks focus on that, I do think there is an opportunity to get ten votes. I don’t believe that what we are hearing from all these things going around the country is representative of the entire 90% of the folks in the Senate. I think that there may be opportunities there. I really do believe that.”Breitbart News
You already know that what he means is standards to benefit Democrats.
But notice how he claims that what’s happening in the country isn’t representative of people in the Senate…
Shouldn’t it be the other way around?
Shouldn’t the Senate represent the country, rather than staking out its own positions contrary to the will of the people?
If you think the Senate should represent the country, then you’ve got common sense.
Unlike most politicians!
