Wrap-up of the 17th Amendment on the Web, 28 December 2007

Since the last wrap-up the number of hits on the internet has fallen. Notable are the first four. The first Compromise and utopianism highlights the march for “more” democracy; the second Congress should nix the Electoral College, is a call for further dismantling of our founders efforts; the third Senate Passes $555-Billion Spending Bill, is from me, highlighting the $555 billion Omnibus spending bill, which should be cause for alarm for all Americans. The fourth, Contingent Freedom, provides a historical examination of the 16th and 17th Amendment, and the Federal Reserve Act, and how these measures affect our freedom.

Best regards,

Brian D.:
I thought I would reciprocate the visit you provided at LPJ ...
It seems we have pretty much the same tastes in music and films.
I would stress repealing the 16th Amendment as you much as the 17th.
Otherwise - rock on, fellow Patriot!
I have included your link at my site.
