Rules of a Filibuster Call lots of friends for more voices, can’t go to the restroom, can’t sit down, can’t leave to eat. Quorum A minimum number of members of a deliberative assembly necessary to conduct the business of that group. Different Ways to Vote in Congress (pg. 186) (3) Voice vote- call out “aye” or “no” together Standing vote- in favor of the vote, they stand Roll-call vote- when your name is called yell out “aye” or “no” Longest Filibuster in Senate History - Explain who was giving the filibuster, what the filibuster was against and some interesting facts about the filibuster. Also did the filibuster succeed? 1. J. Strom Thurmond was giving the filibuster 2. Against the Civil Rights in 1957 3. It lasted 24 hours and 18 minutes 4. He switched parties to support Barry Goldwater 5. The filibuster was unsuccessful 1. Do you think filibusters are effective or impractical? If they are absolutely needed then they are effective. The only time they are needed is when someone is super desperate. So if someone is a filibuster then they have to be ready to save someone's butt. 2. Do you think Congress should pass laws to prohibit filibusters or are they a necessary part of the process? Why or Why not? (This is basically an extension of the first question) I think it could be a necessary part, only because they help stall when a bad law is trying to get passed. It also could be a waste of time because if the law wants to be passed, it will be passed.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
