The artwork I decided to use for the 17th amendment represents the opposite of what the 17th amendment stands for, the image reads "Repeal the 17th Amendment Restore States' Rights." Many people rather have the States' as a whole hold the right to appoint Senators instead of the Federal Government. The 17th amendment took away the powers that were given to the states and gave them to the federal government. This took away the buffer between the people and the federal government. The image is from zazzle.com a website that makes custom shirts, mugs, hats, etc.
