Ignoring American History

I'm afraid the tipping point has been surpassed, and there is no longer a will to correct it. I'm watching for one sign to tell me I'm wrong. If the 17th Amendment is repealed, then I will believe there is a possibility that America is not on the expressway to serfdom. Without that, nothing else is going to work.

Idahoser, I have been preaching this for years. The 17th amendment and progressive taxation was the beginning of the down grade of the USA. 95% of the people I mention the 17th amendment to have no idea of what I'm referring to. You here people talk about term limits, Where in fact the founding father knew and put in a natural term limit for the Senate. Originally Senators were appointed to the Senate by their State legislator's. This kept corruption more local and close to the public where the people could make changes quickly. The founding Fathers were very enlightened, They knew that the states would be represented by the Senator Appointed and That Senator was responsible to the State on a daily basis,

The founding Fathers I believe divinely guided to put together a more perfect union. Where everyone was represented. The States by their appointed Senator, The people by their elected Congressmen every two years, And the WHOLE country by the President with limited powers. Since the 17th amendment Government has grown for self interest. REPEAL THE 17TH AMENDMENT, YES,YES,YES!!!!!!! GOD BLESS US ALL, AS WE THE PEOPLE KNOW NOT WHAT'S GOOD FOR US!!!!!!!!

In times of trouble, I always look to those wiser and stronger then I for guidance.  I look to those who, when faced with hardship, found a way to overcome.
