...And, those idiots, that wrote up the 17th did it in such a rush and without the influence of the law of unintended consequences, failed to note that Representatives had a two year term of office, NOT SIX, and on those grounds alone, the seventeenth should have failed ratification and we wouldn’t be faced with near impossible task of attempting to protect ourselves from a runaway federal government by and through state governments who are subject to lawsuit by the Government they gave the power to govern in the first place, and may I add:

The federal government does not have the power vested to sue those from whom it has received license. Eric Holder and the Justice Dept, and the President of the United States are engaging in Treason on even the contemplation of such action, and the States are in breach of their duty to “the People” in not withdrawing all power previously given to the federal government until such time as it restores the Republic as outlined in the founding documents to the limited and defined powers the Federal Government is entitled to.

The 17th ammendment was that Socialist Bastard Wilson’s plan to gut the Republic and turn the USA into a “democracy” on the way to full socialism.

Yep, the only reason Reps do not have one year terms is the difficulty of 18th Century travel.

SIX YEAR TERMS?!!! . . . not a chance.

I would appreciate your comments on this earlier FR post:

The 17th Amendment, State Laws and the Independent Judiciary
