The natural pasttime of the Republican Party. Often done in response to their political opponents' attempts to fix America. No matter how important the issue at hand is, it's simply easier for them to ignore the issue and refuse to go to the table.
Democrat: In light of all the recent events, I think we should consider the public's demands of enforcing more gun-control laws--
Republican: Aww, that's cute. Tell you what, I'm going to ignore everything you just said because I'd rather discuss this anti-abortion law.
Democrat: Filibuster this, bitch. *Vetoes the Republican's existence*
