    Sorry, but the Tea Partiers really are crazy. They want to take away our right to vote for our Senators!

    Why Repeal 17th Amendment?

    They want our Senators to be appointed. Back room deals. Corruption. Great idea.

    So several Republican candidates who are trying to get the Tea Party vote had had to walk back from supporting this stupid idea.

    Here's a little history about how the 17th amendment came about.

    And Mark Twain's words pertain to the Tea Party Republican candidates of today, in my opinion.

    i love the little scoff.... typical.

    hint: if it were what the tea nutters want, neither paul nor sestak would have the slightest chance at a senate seat.

    you do understand that, right?

    Yeah. What sane person, who understands checks and balances, doesn't want to return Senate control back to the States and restore their power over the Federal Government?

    The tea baggers are probably some of the most idiotic people on earth.

    Wanna know why they want to repeal this amendment? They listen to Glen Beck. He don't know shit about the Constitution either.

    what constitutes the 'state'? the people of a state? or the state legislature?

    you people really are out of control.

    No, it's not like that now. We vote for our Senators now.

    They aren't appointed. They campaign and run for office and we go to the polls and vote for them.
