9. Filibuster is a flawed remnant of Jim Crow. It needs to go.

Or at least it needs major reform. It should be a 'weapon' of last resort to protect the right of the minority to have their voices heard, not a way to obstruct most legislation.

Not sure how this could be done exactly, but I'm sure the rules guru's can come up with something.
