The reasons for blocking the debate on the Warner-Levin resolution were that two other Republican backed measures would not be heard. Why not? Because the Democrats thought that one of the other measures would pass and they weren't as strongly worded as the Warner-Levin bill. These bills are just words. They do nothing, accomplish nothing, and compel nobody to do anything. Instead of letting these useless bags of hot air be debated, the Democrats point fingers at Republicans and vice-versa. This is a fun game for Senators, as it doesn't require one to actually do anything. "It's not their fault," they'll say, "those nasty _________ wouldn't be reasonable and let the issue be debated, so there is really nothing I can do. Talk to my colleague." Meanwhile, more people die, and more rights are taken, and more Americans grow complacent with their worthless representation in government.
If the Senate can't even debate an issue that has no real power, what are they there for. Why do we pay them. The Democratic Party said during the last election that they had huge plans that would put the President in his place and end the war. They give us a non-binding resolution that says that the American people are very cross with the President and would like him to stop the war. Then they can't even get it to the floor because they act like spoiled children with a basketball.
In my short time on this planet, I have learned that words don't accomplish much. The actions behind these words are the only thing that matters. Feeling good about your time in the Senate is meaningless. They need to do what they said they were going to do, or get out of the way so someone with a little guts can.
