And just how are y'all going to get all this repealin' done?
Amendment repeal has to be done by ANOTHER AMENDMENT. (See: Prohibition.) An Amendment begins with a joint resolution of Congress. So that means the Senate has to be in liberty-friendly hands. It ain't.
And if a lot of you stay home rather than vote for Romney, the Senate is going to STAY in statist hands, and no repeal will be possible.
Despise not the day of small things.
Before Obama, I had slim hope that the 17th could be repealed. But now in this environment, I believe it is doable especially electing the conservative candidates. Takes two thirds of both houses of Congress and then 3/4 of the states.
Obama by his lawlessness in office has done more to bring to light the need for the 17th to be repealed.
The 16th might be taller order. But if we don’t push for it, debate it, demand it and vote for people who will do it, no it would not happen.
