Here is a link to an article I wrote on the 17th amendment. Been looking into this for 20 or so years. I posted it on the daily paul here a couple of times I think. Happy reading!!
The article not only describes the problems with it, it also gives a fool-proof way of getting rid of it. The amendment is not valid due to the following clause in article 5 of the Constitution:
"... and that NO State, without its consent, shall be deprived of its
equal Suffrage in the Senate."
At least 10 states never consented.
Paul C. Hanson
