It’s not alarmist to state that the future of our country could be defined by the two Georgia Senate races. We are in an existential moment, and it sure feels like we are floating through it in a daze, without the sense of urgency you would expect if the entire future of your country were on the line. We just had a tough election, but for those who care about our future, it’s past time to wake up from the daze.
Democrats are livid about the Trump era. They feel wronged by President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court picks — even though the process that led to them was started by their own former leader Harry Reid. They feel wronged by Trump’s muscular use of executive authority — even though the president’s actions followed a trend that has been growing for a few successive presidential administrations on a bipartisan basis.
Regardless of the merits leading to this perceived case of injustice, it’s a fact that many Democrats are out for revenge. If they have the White House, the House and the Senate, the pressure on President-elect Joe Biden to enact a pretty extreme agenda is going to be immense. Will Biden have the strength to push back against this? Will he even want to push back? The games he played during the campaign on the question of packing the Supreme Court and the fact that his own vice president is all for a more radical agenda do not bode well for those hoping Biden will stand in the way of the radical elements who have all the energy in his party today.
A Democratic Senate looking to change America would start by killing the Senate filibuster so they no longer need 60 votes to pass a bill. They don’t need any Republican votes to do that, and once it’s done, the Republicans won’t be able to stop anything. First up for grabs would be expanding the Supreme Court to the point that a solid majority of liberal justices are in place to rubber-stamp a newly activist agenda.
