Fun Fact: The 17th Amendment

Fun facts about the United States senate

Before the 17th amendment, the State House would elect our Federal Senators. There’s actually a huge group of moronic conservatives who believe the 17th amendment should be repealed. Their reasoning? A whole bunch of crap about state’s rights. Taking democracy away from the people? Sounds dumb no matter which way you look at it.
