I cannot muster the energy to tackle trying to bring about a constitutional convention in the hopes that the rational minds now running the state legislatures would repeal the 17th amendment and not create any other mischief.
What I could do and have energy for, however is to lay the groundwork for a campaign to have a proxy vote signed by every inclined individual in my particular state to have each of our votes for a state senator operated on by my state legislature, in hopes that there would be sufficient impetus to have enough of my fellow state citizens join me and override the party apparatus that designates the apparent heir.
And if enough other states had the same activity and copied me….. Viola! A defacto repeal and overthrow of the 17th amendment by the state citizens and without the need for a con-con or for the never-to-occur activity of the Senate to actually curtail their own usurped power.
And then the Senators would once again have to worry about pleasing the states and fear for their jobs if they didn’t. And monstrosities like Obamacare could not again be foisted on us as a free people.
I LIKE it.
