REPOSTING ANOTHER ONE OF MY OLDER ARTICLES (2018).
Folks, as a great self-made layman uneducated neurotic writer, let me give my analysis on why this entire senate gridlock shutdown is happening.
To get at why the U.S. senate is having all of these gridlock shutdowns we need to understand how the founding fathers set up congress.
Whereas, the U.S. senate’s role has changed almost 180 degrees from what the founded fathers set it up to be.
Each state governor was to appoint two senators to be approved by the state legislature for a term of six years.
It was designed to provide enough time for cooled heads to prevail. However, there was a lot of frustration and bitterness buildup between state governors and state legislatures on who got to be appointed.
Now, lets fast forward to the year of our Lord 2018: Today the U.S. senate is still bogged down with a lot of old arcane rules.
But, the reason the majority will almost never change a filibuster rule is because even though they may be in the majority at the present, after the next election the other side may have the majority.
