Delegates to the Confederation Congress had three years on/three years off term limits. That the Framers rejected term limits was unfortunate.

The quality of State legislators would increase if they were responsible for the Senators they appointed. That's what the Lincoln/Douglas debates were about. State legislators had to be up and knowledgeable of national affairs. A dolt for State Assembly who could not intelligently discuss slavery, imposts as well as State issues didn't have a chance.

As for repeal, I'd appreciate your feedback to:

Repeal the 17th Amendment to Restore the 10th.

About your About page: I’m re-studying the third item from the top to see if I agree. The third item from the bottom, we agree if you change the comma to a period and strike the rest of the sentence. Every other point seems spot on.
