We encourage the repeal of the 17th Amendment.

In order to protect the sovereignty of the states, the framers of the federal Constitution established a Senate thus giving the states direct representation through congress.  This was meant to provide a means for each state to protect and defend its own authority.  A senate would represent the voice of each and every state and be selected by each state’s legislature. This process, constituted by our founding fathers, and originally intended, was necessary to protect the independent status of each state of the Union.

The 17th Amendment to the federal Constitution, by providing for the popular vote of U.S Senators effectively superseded the original Constitutional authority of the state legislatures and has helped silenced the voice of the states.

Repealing the 17th Amendment will reestablish the voice of the states in congress and restore the balance of authority as the founders intended.
