"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children's children what it was once like in the United States where men were free....... ~Ronald Reagan~

Senator Byrd and the "Nuclear Option"

Senator Byrd (D-WVA) and former KKK member has suggested the use of the "Nuclear Option" to end filibusters in the Senate is comparable to the Nazis and Hitler. The "nuclear option" is the scary-sounding name for a simple Senate rule change to stop the filibuster of appeals-court nominees. So now for a little known fact about Mr. Byrd: Mr. Byrd used the tactic to change Senate precedents on filibusters and other delaying tactics when he was Majority Leader in 1977, 1979, 1980 and 1987. I suppose what's good for the goose is good for the the gander, er..ah...Byrd! Source: Harvard Journal of Law & Public Policy
