As much as I would like to see it happen, we can’t trust our current congress with the constitution.
Personally something I would like to see instead of an out right repeal would be to stop electing senators by popular vote. (Give them a certain number of votes per district)
Seems kind of funny that we can change how we vote for president within the states but we’re stuck with the current situation when it comes to senators.
There is a lot of support for going proportional in presidential races in Michigan.
This is a double-edged sword. Not sure about this one.
I would HATE to have the New Jersey Legislature choose our Senators.
On the other hand, considering the blathering idiots (Corzine, Menendez, Lautenberg, “Dollar Bill” Bradley) the majority of New Jersey voters have sent to the Senate, maybe it would make no difference here but might improve the picture in sane places like Georgia.
I would donate my last dollar to this cause, if I thought it stood a snowball’s chance in hell of passing.
Does anyone with a brain think those 100 bastards in the Senate would allow it? Even 60 of them? 20? 10? 5? Maybe two.
The Seventeenth is a disaster for Original Intent. It emasculates the states legislatures and needs to go. Unfortunately it is probably with us forever.
The 17th was singularly the most damaging hit to the Constitution.
Progressives NEEDED to yank control away from the states. The Senate was established to put the brakes on the “rabble” in the house, where “mob rule” was known to prevail.
Repeal of the 17th should be the highest priority of all state legislatures.
Think this isn’t an important issue? The RATZ and other illegals and criminals will scream and holler and fight like demons with a lightning bolt up their butts. You think voter ID fight is big, wait till you see this one.
While were in there fixing up the USC can we get rid of the 16th amendment also?
I'm as serious as a heart attack,folks.If Quebec can do it (they came close a few years back) and if Scotland can do it (they have a referendum coming up) we can do it.
Bad, bad, bad.
Both elected by the people does not.
‘Cause we know that the legislators of our states won’t suck more pork from Uncle Samantha than the rest of us would (bad as the rest of us are). [Little irony and sarcasm there.]
If the 17th were repealed, we would be taxed more than we earned and shot for trying to do so much as building a storage shed. We would be even more subject to the tyranny of a few favored constituents controlling politicians from the shadows.
More clearly, it’s a desire to give local/state politicians even more control over the flow of federal pork to further “empower” themselves to watch, control and rob us. Most such folks in our country lean extremely to the left on getting federal money to their accounts and preventing others from having traditional families (federally funded social programs) and producing truly useful items in small shops (federally instigated and funded local regulations demanding fees/bribes, government-linked NGOs, government-dependent services, etc.).
Only the repeal of the 19th can save America, and that won’t happen.
Very interesting, just not sure what I think about this.
