Any opinions on the balance of power in Congress?
The 17th Amendment was a New Deal amendment and is not what the founders intended.
Here's a nice podcast on repealing the 17th Amendment (link to Volokh.com): http://volokh.com/2010/07/15/repeal-the ... o-podcast/
If we hold a Constitutional Convention we are !
The state legislatures should be the ones to appoint Senators and they would be held personally responsible by the elected officials back in their home states...
I have thought very seriously about that. I don't know how you can limit it to only one amendment if you start. If you open the box you might not could stop it. Scary ain't it.
But it still requires 3/5ths of the states to ratify. And it's not an 'all or none' deal. Each Amendment must be ratified separately.
We'll have to ratify it to find out what is in it.
Term limits on senators would go a lot further toward improving Congress than modifying their electoral process.
Now where have I heard that one before ??? Oh yeah, I remember now...
