|If your Senator (s) did not vote in accordance with 91% of Americans|
who favored stricter background checks on purchasing guns
do not, I repeat do not re-elect them, they represent the NRA and the almighty dollar and not the people.
Filibuster, Smilibuster,Democracy Is A Nebulous Creature
Democracy is a nebulous creature. The recent gun reform legislation favoring stricter background checks was defeated in the senate even though it won a majority of 56 yeas to 46 no's.
Ninety one percent of Americans favor stricter background checks yet the bill was defeated even in the aftermath of the Sandyhook massacre where 20 children and six adults were slaughtered with an assault rifle.
We are the only Democratic nation that requires 60 % of the vote verses 51% when a bill is filibustered. This is a political tactic challenging a bill with long tireless debates that go on for hours, 60% of votes are then required.
Since president Obama became president nearly every bill is filibustered, a scheme by Republicans to try and make President Obama fail verses what's best for our great nation.
To any Republicans and 4 Democrats who voted against stricter background checks, imagine if one of the children gunned down at Sandyhook elementary school was yours ?
If your Senators did not vote in accordance with the 91% in favor of stricter background checks, by all means do not re-elect them. I am proud to say both my Hawai'i Senators, Brian Schatz and Mazie Hirono voted with the president on this crucial matter.
May God Bless America, we surely need it.
