The coming dictatorship.

If Biden wins, if the senate is won by the Democrats, if the house remains in Democrat control.

Here's what we will have:

The future under one party rule"That means doing away with the Senate filibuster so the GOP can’t obstruct the Democratic agenda. It means passing legislation that has already made it through the Democratic-controlled House to expand voting rights. It means making the District of Columbia and possibly Puerto Rico states — and increasing the Democratic advantage in the Senate by as many as four seats. And it means expanding district and circuit courts and adding at least four new seats to the Supreme Court so Democrats can create a liberal majority.
These are hardball moves. They represent a break with notions of bipartisanship that some congressional Democrats still cling to, despite all that’s happened in recent years. But hoping that Republicans will suddenly return to a more traditional, measured politics is a fool’s errand — which is why Democrats should push through all these changes on day one, creating an immediate and fundamental change in the way the American government operates.":
 
This from the Boston Globe.
 
It means a dictatorship is in the works.  No law will passed by this leftist/communist anti-American group would ever be found to be unconstitutional.  We ALL are doomed it this takes place.

Re: The coming dictatorship.

Bits and pieces of some of that might happen. Most would unquestionably be proposed.

The barrier to most of it is that a considerable % of Democrats in Congress are rather moderate/conservative from States and Districts that would immediately punish them in their next campaign. And, therefore, would be very unlikely to back much of it.

Re: The coming dictatorship.

Lol.

The Constitution did not cut off expanding statehood at 50.

The Constitution does not set the number of Justices on SCOTUS and it has varied over time.

The GQP did not hesitate to confirm hundreds of judges with less than the filibuster supermajority, and Harry Reid got rid of it for confirmations when Mitch dug his troops in to stop all Obama appointments.

The filibuster is not a constitutional matter- it is a Senate rule that has been around since 1917. It is a "norm" lol.

If you mean that corporations and the wealthy will become somewhat more limited in the capacity to rile a minority of The Folk in order to either rule or obstruct, yes, that is a dictatorship.

Re: The coming dictatorship.

None of what you wrote is relevant.  What I wrote is the blueprint that the Democrats will follow if elected to complete the dictatorship.  The house can pass a law, the senate will agree and Harris, er Biden will rubber stamp it.  The stacked supreme court will say it's fine and we the people will have no recourse.

Remember RBG felt that the 2nd Amendment was out dated and she felt  that we should follow the laws of Europe. 

The first thing that Bill Clinton did when he took office was to shut down any investigations of him and Hillary by firing all the US attorneys.  President Trump was foolish to keep any Democrat appointee's.  Harris will no doubt with AOC create laws allowing them to fire judges confirmed by President Trump. 

I believe now that you on the left aren't the Democrats of old, I believe that you are the communists that fled the USSR.  You infect Green Peace, Friends of the Earth, PETA, ALF,EDF and others of the same ilk.

Re: The coming dictatorship.

Go ahead and have yourself a little war Millie.  How many do you think, are going to follow you into battle?  And where you going to start?   Are you going to have the US military behind you, or are you going to be more like Afghanistan fighters in the back of pickup trucks.   You’re a fool.   Elections have consequences.   More than a quarter of a million Americans dead by Election Day, it just proves how important it is to have someone competent as a president.  Trump was incompetent in the position you cult members gave him before he even took office. Trump’s failings, are the failings of those that voted for him to not be able to see the incompetence, that more of America saw, than didn’t....

Republicans can’t win an election, without lying or fear mongering.... or voter suppression.

The rule for this one?  Apply the Republican rule.  Flip what is said by a Republican by 180 degrees, and you’ll be getting pretty close to reality.

Hitler thought the military was with him. Are you so sure they would support you when it comes down to the protection of this country?
