DOJ Promotes Voter Fraud

A whistleblower at the Department of Justice claims that the government is keeping ineligible voters on the voter registry:

Repealing the 17th Amendment would reduce the power of voter fraud because Senators would be incentivized to limit the power of the federal government in favor of the states. Thus, states would be incentivized to have policies that people actually want to live under, rather than jamming the policies that the elite want us to have down our throats.

Those who claim that the 17th Amendment made America more democratic are using a bad definition of "democracy". In that great book The Party System, Hilaire Belloc and Cecil Chesterton point out that "Votes and elections and representative assemblies are not democracy; they are at best machinery for carrying out democracy."

Federalism works better than elections to protect and promote individual freedom. The only way to restore federalism is to repeal the 17th Amendment.
