The filibuster, also known as Senate Rule 22, allows a minority group of Senators to keep any bill or appointment from ever coming to a vote. In the past, a Senator would take the floor and just talk about any topic and keep legislation tied up. Today, you don't even have to talk a bill to death, you just have to indicate you're willing to filibuster. Southern Senators used this technique very effectively to block civil rights and anti-lynching laws.
The problem is, unlike the House of Representatives, the Senate has unlimited debate. The House did away with it's filibuster technique in 1842. It's time for the Senate to follow suit. When I am King, every bill reported out of committee will be voted on after allowing 10 hours of debate. This will cause a novel event to occur -- majority rule. If you don't like the decisions of the majority, you'll be able to vote them all out of office every four years (see Fix #1). Let's give Democracy a chance.
