An Open Letter

To: Pres. Biden

From: A verified voter in Pebble Beach, CA

July 4

Republicans ignore or change rules, ignore or break norms and often get away with it because they expect Democrats to abide by rules and norms. With democracy at stake, maybe it’s time to start playing politics their way for once to level the playing field, and then get back to normal. Consider: 1) Do away with the filibuster in the Senate, appoint 4 new Supreme Court Justices to balance the Supreme Court. 2) As an official act, declare Trump a clear and present danger to democracy ( there is plenty of evidence), declare him ineligible to run for president, and exile him. (Maybe St. Helena, without access to the internet etc. or outside communication. It worked for Napoleon, it might work for a would-be emperor.) Take temporary advantage of the powers granted by the Supreme Court to show people how it could have been under an autocrat, and let a balanced Supreme Court start to undo the harm that the current corrupt court has done. We have to start with SCOTUS, because any lawsuit rightfully adjudicated by a lower court could be undone by the current composition of the court. We need to take bold, decisive action to save our democracy.
