We need to repeal the 17th Amendment (direct election of US Senators)
Back in 1910, it seemed like a "democrati
c" idea but the Senators are "owned" by the lobbyists who fund their campaigns. "The people" have little or no power over them.
Also, the 17th Amendment upset the balance of power between the people, the states and the executive. Too much power is flowing to the executive at the expense of the people and the states.”
Comment: I see more comments on the Huffington Post calling for the repeal of the 17th than any other online publication. While I know that many of these folks might be (small L) libertarians that are commenting, I am beginning to believe word is spreading to the left. Let's keep on keepin' on folks and get the word out there. Repealing the 17th is a win for every American.
Opportunities multiply as they are seized.
