We have an abusive extra branch of government, the Administrative State, because Congress not only allows it, Congress loves it. Unnamed bureaucrats push around churches, oil companies, insurance companies, THE STATES, . . . and our Congress-clowns just shrug their shoulders and take credit for occasionally helping out the proletariat.

The 17th Amendment made it all possible. No serious reform, no return to Constitutionalism is possible before the horrible 17th is repealed.
