Tag: 17th Amendment
By JGillman, Section News
The Mi4CS US Senate debate on the 14th was a good presentation of Michigan's US Senate candidates on a variety of issues. Though not all the candidates were able to make it, the representation was sufficient to see some contrast in how we might find a better conservative candidate to face off in the US Senate race for Michigan in 2012.
Several questions were asked, but one that stood out as an interesting contrast point, was the question on the 17th amendment. Most readers understand the 17th amendment was the point which state's rights were severely hobbled. I have supported the repeal of the 17th amendment since learning the reasons for which the founders had purposefully avoided it. Of course I was never exposed to such radical ideas in public school, so it was full blown adulthood, and fighting off the years of indoctrination which provided a sense of truth how this country was meant to be.
"Do you believe the Framers were in error in providing for the election of Senators by the State Legislatures and if so do you believe the 17th Amendment, (ratified during the Wilson administration), is the proper solution. Would you introduce/support a repeal of the 17th Amendment?"
The 5 participating candidates had an interesting array of answers. While I would vote for ANY of these distinguished gentlemen over the meat puppet Debbie Stabenow, I was not enthusiastic about a couple of views. I WAS intrigued by the thought process which went into each however. Well done.

The United States Constitution has endured for over 200 years despite the meddling of scheming politicians, at both the state and federal level, and the apathy of a less than vigilant body politic.
