So you don't like federalism either? So how exactly do you simply pretend that the 10th amendment is not the supreme law of the land? Was it repealed without my hearing about it?
Re-read my comment more carefully. I never suggested the 17th amendment would be repealed as my comment clearly points out that it was passed by congress and ratified by 3/4 of the states. I simply stated MY personal opinion that it runs contrary to the concept of federalism. But I advocate states re-asserting their rightful claim to sovereignty, and powers not explicitly granted to the federal government as the 10th amendment reinforces ... as several states have recently expressed.
