I really think that filibusters helps the government is thinking in to a subject with alot of vigor. normally a filibuster is followed by the solution to the problem. every filibuster starts with a large problem, but in the history of filibusters they have never not been successful, and they are known as an extreme measure. whats not so wonderful about filibusters, is that the government shuts down when a filibuster takes place, and we are left with not very reliable means of production or enforcement. filibusters also take any where from 3 to 5 weeks, and the solution is not always everybodies favourite choice, but it tends to get the job done.

In the United States filibusters protect the voice of the minority. Yes the right is abused from time to time, but to limit filibusters goes against the very grain of what is the foundation of perfecting legislation.
