The 17th amendment was specifically designed to put decisions into the hands of ignorant people.

This is not to degrade people, ignorance ins't stupidity. Most people are involved in their own lives, as they should be. With the MSM able to sway and even project the public opinion they want, the 17th amendment was perfect to gain control of the country. As evidence of that, I submit current events. ;)

But, if the 16th and 17th amendments were passed without ratification (as seems to be the case), how can that be defeated? "The People" have had no real power for a long time now.

The government has officially thrown off the cloak of "we the people".
They kept "we" and turned "the people" into subversives and terrorists because "the people" don't support what "we" do.

Just open the box and see
