West Virginia’s legislature passed the legislation, the people of West Virginia might want to take it up with them.
I personally think that it was a mistake to enact the 17th Amendment establishing direct election of Senators. I think that the Republic would be better served if Senators represented and were selected by sovereign states, not individual voters. The House of Representatives is the place for representatives of the people.
If only West Virginia lawlessness were West Virginia's problem alone. Unfortunately, it isn't.
The Demothug who will soon be unlawfully appointed to complete "Sheets" Byrd's term will be voting on national legislation that will affect ALL of us. Critical pieces of the Obamassiah's wretched Marxist agenda will be voted on before November. The Democrats need that 60th vote.
Now, they have it.
