Sen. Val Stevens is pushing legislation this session that would amend the Constitution of the United States, doing away with the 17th Amendment, which guarantees the election of our U.S. senators by a vote of the people.
Comment: Great news and if there are any supporters from the State of Washington please get word to Sen. Stevens of your support and get behind his effort.
On another note, if you happen to go to the link that had the original posting (top line), you'll note the party affiliation of the writer, wink wink, nod nod. If anyone out there has any ideas first, how to get across to the "democrats" that the 17th was not enacted to give the people a voice and to break up the "good old boys club," and second, how to get them behind this movement, I would greatly appreciate your advice. I personally think it's beyond reason, but enough people tell me the repeal movement has to be "non-partisan, so I'd like to hear what you have to say on this subject.
