Elected Senators...the worst idea that the Founders never had.
This totally worthless part of government should be brought back to its original mandate or it should be abolished.
>>Elected Senators...the worst idea that the Founders never had.<<
It used to be (in Congress):
Executive - Presidency
House - People
Senate - States
A balance as the Founders wanted. When the accursed 17th Amendment was passed (the worst ever) we lost a large part of our freedom and the meaning of the “republic!”
Both bodies should have been combined into an advisory board that met separately from the People's House in the capital.
The Executive should have been chosen directly by the House on an annual basis.
Personally I would prefer electing them but eliminating the statewide popular vote crap. Elect them with an electoral type of system where they get a certain number of votes per district.
