The failure of our government may be traced back to the 17th Amendment; the States lost their Senators. Those Senators became party-rats instead of Statesmen. The decay took time to spread its roots and then attacked our government with socialist laws and incredible debt.

There is more to this; I'll have it in September.

I'm with you on that one. There was a post a few days ago discussing exactly this.

I disagree with your point about the 17th. The ‘states’ didnt lose their Senators, the state party beauracracy lost their power over the Senators. The people of the states gained more control over their Senators.
