Were American Senators intended to be Statesmen, or mere professional politicians? And, a more important question:
What are we? The USA is a Constitutional Republic. At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, when a woman asked Benjamin Franklin what sort of nation this new Constitution had brought into being, he replied “A Republic, if you can keep it.” What, exactly, does that mean? What’s the difference between a Republic and a Democracy? Why is the simple answer to that question not right on the tip of the tongue of every American citizen? Why does every American school child not immediately know the answer to that simple question, as they all once did?
Marxist dominated public education has done its work, directed as it is by a government that is dominated by Marxist thought. Beginning over a hundred years ago, our government was first infiltrated, then predominated, and finally dominated by convinced Marxists who oppose the American Republic and the American Constitution, as being imperfect, and therefore “unfair.” Having abandoned their religion, they no longer know that perfection is not of this world, but the next. They seek to impose Marxist perfection on the world in order to change it and make it “perfect.” And they intend to do this to the world whether the world likes it or not.
The Founding Fathers knew full well that a literal Democracy could not work. Pure Democracy can only work with very small groups of people, as might fit around one conference table; whole populations cannot vote on every issue and make every decision for a whole society; it just doesn’t work. Even around a conference table, some sort of rule-of-law is needed, recognized by all participants, or the whole thing ends in utter chaos. That’s why everybody has recognized “Robert’s Rules of Order” for so many decades. Somebody has to hold the gavel and people need to take turns in an orderly manner. So even in the smallest gatherings the importance of rule of law soon supersedes mere rule of men. There is no nation on earth that I am aware of that is a pure Democracy.
The term Democracy in common usage today does not mean pure Democracy, or unlimited Democracy, or literal Democracy. When we refer to a nation as a Democracy what we really mean is to differentiate it from a dictatorship or an un-free land. In common parlance Democracy has come to mean a free-world country. That’s what Reagan meant when he said that (paraphrasing here) “Democracies don’t go to war with each other.” He meant, by Democracy, free lands where the citizens enjoy liberty and open opportunity, and representative government.
Most free lands today are some form of Parliamentary Democracy. England has evolved into a rare combination of Parliamentary Democracy and Constitutional Monarchy, in which the power of royalty is greatly tempered, but still in existence. Most of Europe has been sliding into Social Democracies, or what Lenin called “Democratic Republics.” He saw the Democratic Republic as a stepping stone to Communist takeover. The systematic failures that movement toward and into pure Democracy would sooner or later culminate in the ultimate national crisis to be capitalized on by a ruthless Party, and the nation would go anarchist first, then Communist.
America is really, really unique. First, there’s the 50 sovereign states, each with its own Constitution, Governor, Vice Governor, House of Representatives, Senate and Supreme Court. All of these unique and wildly differing states are just as strongly represented at the federal level as are it’s citizens. That is a key point. In the original design, the states each appoint two senators to represent the state in the United States Senate. They are not politicians; they are US Senators. This is the difference between a Republic and a Democracy. The individual states also, by their own rules, elect “electors” who actually elect the national President. This was designed to insulate the process from pure majoritarianism, which is to say, pure Democracy, or lynch-mob mentality. States with small populations still have two Senators, the same as everybody else, and the electoral college levels the field even more between states. State governments have just as much to say as do state populations.
We must repeal Amendment XVII. The 17th Amendment changed the selection of Senators to be by popular vote as with the House of Representatives. It has proved a political failure, in that the Senate has been reduced to a mere copy of the House, with periodic political contests and Senators and Candidates campaigning among the voting public for the opportunity to represent the voters rather than the State. The 17th Amendment moved us away from being a Republic and toward becoming a pure Democracy, which as we have seen carries with it the danger of moving toward pure majoritarianism, or mob rule.
Pure Democracy is the path to crisis, systematic failure, anarchy and chaos. Lenin knew it before any of us were born, and he hoped to capitalize on it.
One House is supposed to be representative, meaning political, and the other is supposed to be above politics. Since adoption of Amendment XVII, Senators have become politicians no different than Representatives. Indeed, they often work together on scandalous pork-barrel projects for local area needs that have no legitimate business whatsoever even being considered at the national government level. Sticking a line item into a defense bill to fix a pothole in front of the Podunk-Junction post office should be immediately recognized as unconstitutional, but it isn’t. It has become the norm, in both houses.
Repeal of this Amendment would revert back to Article I Section 3 as written by the Founders, in which we see that Senators are chosen by State Legislatures, and serve at the pleasure of the State, not at the pleasure of the citizens. U.S. Senators would therefore be above the political fray and would represent the interests of the sitting State Government, much as any Ambassador or Diplomat would represent the United States to a foreign government. The whole idea of an Upper House was to have Senators representing the interest of their States, and not the state’s population, on an equal footing with the House of Representatives, who’s members each represent the interests of the voters in their respective state districts.
The idea is that a very populace state could not necessarily carry more political clout than a lesser populated state, for the rule of the Senate is equal to the rule of the House, and acts as a counter-balance to pure majority vote. If both houses of Congress are elected by popular vote, that defeats the original intention of the Founding Fathers, which was to prevent that very thing.
Since adoption of the 17th Amendment, our Senate has degenerated into a body similar to the House, with both Houses guilty of participating in a virtual political feeding frenzy over illegitimate Earmarks for constituents and immoral if not illegal Pork, and disgusting Pork Barrel Politics. We have got to bring this to an end if possible; a good start is to immediately remove one House of Congress from the realm of popular and populist politics.
Once the 17th Amendment is repealed, as each sitting Senator's term expires, he would be replaced by his State's method of selecting Senators to the Federal Government. In most if not all cases, this would involve nomination by Governors and/or State Representatives and/or State Senators, with advice and consent of the State Senate. Senators might be "recalled" in the same manner.
Another good idea might be to impose term limits on the House; but that’s another subject for another day. Here, I state the case for repeal of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution.
That’s my opinion; what’s yours?
Some further food for thought:
“ … the first step in the revolution by the working class is to raise the proletariat to the position of ruling class to win the battle of democracy.” –Communist Manifesto.
The political form of a society wherein the proletariat is victorious in overthrowing the bourgeoisie will be a democratic republic. --Vladimir Lenin.
Communism is for us not a state of affairs which is to be established, an ideal to which reality [will] have to adjust itself. We call communism the real movement which abolishes the present state of things. The conditions of this movement result from the premises now in existence. --Karl Marx.
"We are a very different country than we were 200 years ago. I believe strongly that in a democracy, we should respect the will of the people and to me, that means it's time to do away with the Electoral College and move to the popular election of our president.” –Hilary Clinton.
It is enough that the people know there was an election. The people who cast the votes decide nothing. The people who count the votes decide everything. --Joseph Stalin.
If the personal freedoms guaranteed by the Constitution inhibit the government's ability to govern the people, we should look to limit those guarantees. --Bill Clinton.
Democracy is the road to socialism. --Karl Marx.

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and
broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in
thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life:
and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in
the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Jesus Christ; Matt 7:13-15
Returning America to the revolutionary High Ideals of the Founding Fathers, and to the formalized Ideology of Liberty that the Framers set down in the Constitution as the Supreme Law of the Land.
The Fixing America Pages
Almost all the rest of this site talks about our problems; these pages talk about how to fix them. Marxist anti-Americanism has advanced so far in even our politics and our own government that we now have to consider super-radical changes just to save the Constitution itself.
The Required Radical American Re-Revolution. Or, Re-Constitution. It took 100+ years to radicalize Constitutional America. It will take a radical re-revolution to bring it back to sanity.
Fixing it all, or, losing it all: the only options left for America. Fixing it all is our only option. If we don't fix it all, we will surely lose it all.
Going whole-Hog on American Constitutional Restoration. It's all or nothing, now. If we don't go whole-hog on Constitutional Restoration, the USA is history.
Constitutional America requires American re evangelization. We cannot revive Constitutionalism without an American re evangelization.
Deep Reconciliation means repentance, confession, absolution and conversion. A Serious, Deep Reconciliation is required of this whole nation, one man at a time.
At this moment in time, most Constitutionalists would love to kill the IRS. How do you Kill the IRS? Fast-track and pass the Fair Tax. Very simple; nothing to it.
Our argument supporting the Fair Tax as a sensible and practical Tax Revolution. Fair Tax presents the possibility of a real, popular, voter-supported, tax payer supported, grass-roots supported Revolution in America, and a radical change for the better.
Fasttrack Fairtax: Stop income tax until repeal of Amendment XVI. Fasttrack Fairtax: Legislate to not collect income tax and pass FairTax.
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVI, the Income Tax Amendment. Repeal Amendment XVI and the very idea of progressively taxing income.
Argument for Repeal of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. The Federal Reserve Act did not prevent the Great Depression, so why does The FED still exist?
Argument to Repeal Amendment XVII and the Politicizing of the Senate. We need to repeal Amendment XVII and restore our Senate to its original status.
It isn't just Obamacare; we need to kill controlled Health Care. Kill Controlled Health Care to get government and insurance out of the medical transaction.
We need to shut down the dept of education. Shut down the dept of education and cut $77B from the budget.
Argument against Public Education, which is, in fact, Government Indoctrination. Public Education equals State Indoctrination, pure and simple. Education is beyond the scope of government and not what our government is constituted to do.
Are our federal bureaucracies all malignant outgrowths of Marxism? Any extra-Constitutional government agency is likely to be a malignant outgrowth of Marxism.
My Proposed Constitutional Amendment to neutralize the enemy within. A proposed Constitutional Amendment to get anti-Constitutionalists out of power and authority.
The process of becoming a Godless Nation is the sure path to National Insanity. The Godless Nation: Can a totally secularized people even know right from wrong?
Regarding The President We Need, The President We Deserve, and God's Judgment. I can describe the President we need; what we have now is the President we deserve.
Compromise with Evil begins the ultimate death spiral. Compromise on any Vital Principle leads to death, for individual souls and for cultures.
Tolerating intolerance of America is what Americans are being trained to do. In tolerating intolerance of themselves some Americans think they are proving something or other.
Why is this American Christian nation not called a Christian nation? This American Christian nation is oddly referred to as something other than a Christian nation. Why?
Chastity Vs. The Modern World: Signs of a Culture in Decline. Looking more closely at what is REALLY at the heart of American political debate today.
The Chastity Vs Sophistication division: Wisdom Vs Elitist Celebritwittery. 'Naïve' Chastity Vs Sophistication of the Elite. Lechery, promiscuity, perversion are Sophisticated; chastity equates to naiveté. See?
Of Lies and Liars: All the devil's lies, and all the devil's liars cannot make a new truth. He can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but he can't fool all of the people all of the time.
Constitutionalism: Sovereign Citizenship and Limited Representative Government. The philosophy that government derives authority from citizens and is permanently limited is called Constitutionalism.
A minority tail furiously wags a majority dog unto death. In bending over backwards to mollify and molly-codle minorities, the majority forgets it is the majority.
The Christ-centered life, the godless life, and the inevitable ungodly life. When any Godly nation moves into godlessness, the inevitable end is an ungodly nation.
American survival requires bold, take it to the enemy leadership. What we need is radical, revolutionary take it to the enemy leadership just for national survival itself.
Undoing the damage and righting the wrongs, wherever possible. Undoing the damage must follow national survival (assuming national survival.)
American Foreign Policy: what it was, what it is, what it should be. Obamunists and Marxocrats turned American foreign policy into an absolute travesty.
Fix the VA by switching all Government Coverage to VA Coverage. Restricting Congress, the Presidency and the Court to Existing Military Coverage should fix the VA pretty quick.
Fix Military Pay by tieing it to Congressional Pay and Raises. Tying Presidential, Congressional, Judicial and Military to One Pay Scale should Fix Military Pay.
Regarding off-duty military concealed-carry of firearms. With Moslem potential Jihadists in our own military ranks, all American military should be armed at all times.
Sheriffs and Veterans and Citizens; Oh My! County Sheriffs and Veterans should together form volunteer Minute-Man like County Militia units of the free citizenry.
Patience. Be not afraid. A Glorious Sunrise is coming. The Son rose on a Sunday, following a Friday Crucifixion. Our Sunrise will come after much suffering; it will come with our reawakening to Truth.
