Dylan Herald started this petition to U.S. Senate and

It is important that legislation in our country is able to be made law. Democracy cannot work if our Legislators won’t let it. We have to take a stand and tell them that we are ready for change, and that we will not continue compromising. The Filibuster has got to go. 

But what is the Filibuster anyway? The Filibuster has a long history in American politics, in our House of Representatives and the Senate. Although the Filibuster ended in the House, it continues to go on in the Senate. The Filibuster is a way of prolonging debate and discussion time that requires 60 votes to end. This means that if a party were to do that to a bill they didn’t like, then it would be difficult to get 60 votes, especially now with the 50/50 Senate. This is terrible for our democracy and society because it blocks important legislation from ever getting a chance of passing. Now if the Filibuster were to be eliminated, this would allow for important and popular change to take place and have a fair shot at making our country a better place. So should we continue to allow the people to serve us to go behind our backs? Sign this petition to end the Filibuster.
