If the polls are right and biden wins big plus the dems take the senate is that a mandate?

is it a rejection of the GOP and so called conservatism? a rejection of trumpsim?
a mandate for major change .universal health care with either a public option or medicare for all, an end to oil gas subsidies, abortion rights codified into federal law,raising the minimum wage and more???

I say it is. and i hope the dems to all that and more. it will be a complete rejection of everything trump has done.

I don’t reject conservatism, but I reject Trumpism and all the BS associated with it. Trumpism does not equal conservatism.

Yeah…its pretty damn close.

If it is a mandate and the GOP blocks all legislation, does the mandate include elimination of the filibuster? Or a return to the old filibuster?

It’s a mandate for civility that’s all. I remember when Obama won the first time and he had the house and 60 senators, James Carvelle said the Republicans would be out of power for 40 years. How did that work out? If the left tries to use this scenario as a mandate for leftist policies they will lose in a landslide in 2 years just like Obama did.

im pretty sure that if the dems win the fillibuster is dead no matter what

it possible but in the first 2 years i think they will pass the majority of what they want and just ignore any GOP objections

It’s pretty much a given that this won’t happen. Moonshine’s scenario is more plausible.

I am always civil, but I remember the horrors the GOP enacted afterwards personally in my own state. Should I should be civil with barbarians? (that’s meant to be tongue in cheek, don’t take it personally)

I don’t doubt that. But the Democrats will quickly lose power again just like 2010. Biden will be dealing with a Republican congress in 2022 if Moonshine’s scenario happens.

Then they should work as quickly as possible to make sure they pass as much as they can.

Or they could actually turn the temperature down, act civil and stay in power.

It won’t matter if it’s a mandate or not, they will put the country on the fast track to removing our Constitutional rights & create a socialist state right after they install President Kamala.

One can only hope

There are people to listen to, and many conservatives are worth the time it takes to listen to them speak. Those are the ones that should have input.

But most of them are not in Washington.

I’m just going to start threads after threads attacking everything you libs do.

The CEC has made civility impossible. Any Republican that works with Democrats are immediately labeled a Rino and primaried.

That’s funny after watching how you libs behaved over the last 3 and 3/4 years.

Not sure about that either. I think they’ll spend two years doing everything they possibly can legislatively to ensure long-term electoral dominance, and the press isn’t likely to cover any Democratic policy failures anyway.
