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.

The Senate is supposed to represent the states, so I would like to see this pass.

That's a great idea.

As for repealing the 17th Amendment, I would only agree with trying it, if the 19th Amendment were successfully abolished first. ...if the anti-17th folks are really serious about cutting government spending. ;-)
