In Pat Buchanan's latest article, he states the obvious once Democrats effectively end the filibuster:
After abolishing the filibuster, says Obama, Democrats should ram through statehood for Puerto Rico and D.C., thereby expanding the Senate to 104 members, and adding four new Democratic senators. That new Senate, says Obama, should enact every law possible to enlarge and expand the electorate, including extending the ballot to ex-convicts.
The filibuster is a relic of racism, so we know Republicans will eventually cave in to prove that they aren't the REAL racists.
Once Puerto Rico gains statehood, the low tax incentives known as Act 60/22/20 will no longer apply as Puerto Rico will be subject to Federal Income taxes.
Purely conjecture, after the Democratic President gets reelected after Trump, they can use their newfound "mandate" to push their agenda 8 to 12 years from now after whatever residual courage demonstrated by Trump completely evaporates and the Cuckservatives continue their cuck ways.
This all happens to fall into the 2033 timing of Vox Day of the disintegration of the United States.
I hope to be long gone and better strategically situated long before then.
If you want to see an obvious "milestone" of the end of the US Empire, the filibuster will be one of them. But I see the end of the filibuster as only being a symptom of the greater demographic vulnerabilities. The end of the filibuster will only speed up an already declining, and conquered empire.
