The United States Constitution forever!

The filibuster isn't a part of the Constitution. The founding fathers intended a simple majority to decide the outcome of most Senate votes and the filibuster ruins how our democracy was meant to work.

It is not part of the US Constitution, becoming theoretically possible with a change of Senate rules only in 1806 and not used until 1837. Rarely used for much of the Senate's first two centuries, it was strengthened in the 1970s and in recent years, the majority has preferred to avoid filibusters by moving to other business when a filibuster is threatened and attempts to achieve cloture have failed. As a result, in recent decades this has come to mean that all major legislation (apart from budgets) now requires a 60% majority to pass.

It was strengthened in the 70s, which lines up nicely with when the political divide began to widen and this country started to go downhill. The founding fathers were smart to not include the filibuster in the Constitution. We should end it's usage or at least limit it to its pre-1970s power.

Is not like we have a choice in the matter.
