How about forcing those using the filibuster to remain standing and talking, no bathroom breaks or nap breaks or food breaks. They want to filibuster? They need to be dedicated to the effort. Additionally, though, require them to stick to the topic and present ACTUAL arguments. No showboating. No tangents. You discuss why you oppose or support the thing you are filibustering over, or you sit the hell down and shut up, and the Filibuster can be ended? The moment they start reading Dr. Seuss, for example...filibuster over.

Maybe next week explain why a district in North Carolina held a secret vote without Democrats in the room to vote and passed a law like that. Why is this possible and how can we fix it

John Oliver’s voice & accent and the way he narrates the plot is just the perfect combination for a successful late night show .. every video is more attention-grabbing and exciting and his messages reach much of his audience

Hey John, maybe think about doing a segment on Earmarks.
Because they were gotten rid of during the Obama years, most consequential political decisions are left up to individual departments, which are controlled by the Executive branch.
Yes, Congress still has to approve spending on programs, but if a President's party is in control of congress, they'll always agree with them.
Basically, the government was designed to give the power of legislating to Congress, and they're LITERALLY not allowed to do that anymore.

Oliver forgets Democrats won 60 seats in 2008. However, thanks to procedural obstruction, they were never allowed to seat 60 senators before Ted Kennedy died.

Oliver made damn sure not to mention what Rand Paul was actually protesting. He wanted to bring attention to Obama drone striking US citizens(execution without trial)

Funny that he didn't say Thurmond was a democrat. Always quick to point out a republican with a bad idea, but not mention the D next to a bad actor.

The USA is fucked. Goodbye "world power". You lack behind health,
education and intellect. Decades of 'hustling' made you corrupt beyond
help. So, you basically got what you deserved, you got the president you
desevered. And you won't learn from your mistakes, you won't deal with
the consequences... you will try to elect Biden and try to go back to
10 years ago, acting like nothing happaned. Acting like there's not a
sizeable portion of your population that gleefully agrees to have kids
killed at the border, that gleefully engages in racism and nationalism
(ie. "nazi stuff", for you uneducated retards)
The US as a "world power" is done for.

What do you mean you didn't know there were Dutch pirates? The Netherlands were a major colonial power in the 17th century. Of course there were Dutch pirates!

So the only Democrat you are willing to bash is... Strom Thurmond, who became a Republican later... Dems are never obstructionist, huh? Both parties are worthless.

Good. An ineffective government is a good government. Nothing causes more harm than a bad government policy and the more policies they pass the more likely one will be bad. Keep your shitty European opinions to yourself. The UK is a mess, we don't need your style of doing things here.

there is a certain sense of joy to see a (D) talk about how they would suspend legislation that would stop poll taxes on blacks . Then jump to present day and that has been replaced with (R) and realize that same legislation effectively destroyed their party. While southern racism hasnt died(im from Tx and its def a thing) at least its dulled drastically. I hope in my lifetime we can have another huge shift cause to be honest Republican future on the current status quo aint great. blaming brown folk for everything when the country is turning browner and old racist white folk will be dying off probably aint the great strategy, If conservatism goes to actually being about small government and fiscal responsibility instead of something Jesus said (dad is evangelical on Jesus chose Trump) I think it would be better for all of us.

Just because Trump agrees with me on something doesn't mean I should stop agreeing with that overall good thing. This is so childish and using that as an argument against abolishing the filibuster is everything wrong with politics. Genuinely disappointed you even brought that up at all.
