Judge Napolitano: The Role of States

Part 5 of "The Constitution and Freedom":

As Judge Napolitano notes, the senate as originally designed was the structural protection of the Tenth Amendment and the safeguard of federalism. When the Senate's role was altered by the 17th Amendment, it stopped protecting people from the destructive and corruptive centralization of power that has created the federal leviathan that threatens us today.
