"The Republicrat Democrats who voted for cloture were extremely sneaky, thinking they could have it both ways: Saying they had voted against Alito, while they surely voted to confirm him by stopping the filibuster.
A Filibuster works like this: If at least 41 senators strongly oppose a bill or nominee, they can vote to continue debate and block a final vote on the issue. A final vote can only be taken if and when the majority wins 60 senators' votes.
In the context of a Supreme Court battle, the filibuster means that 60 Senate votes may be needed to confirm out of the mainstream judicial nominees rather than a simple majority of 51.
Therefore, if ALL Democrats had voted against cloture, the Republicans would not have gotten the 60 votes necessary to vote on Alito, and he would have been kept off the Supreme Court.
Therefore, we MUST HOLD ANY DEMOCRAT WHO VOTED FOR CLOTURE RESPONSIBLE, even if they later voted against Aliito’s confirmation.
We must work to get these folks out of office asap just like we must get as many Republicans out as we possibly can in elections this fall. Of course there are the problems with our elections being rigged, but I am personally considering this autumn's elections the last chance for Democracy. If this year's elections are once again rigged then we all may have to consider changing tactics.
Anyway, here is the list of traitors.
DEMOCRATS WHO VOTED TO BUST THE FILIBUSTER
DEMOCRATIC TURNCOATS VOTED TO CONFIRM ALITO
More on this subject in the future, no doubt.
