Senatorial Elections And State Rights
Alan Keyes is apparently in favor of repealing the 17th Amendment and reverting to the schema used until 1913 when Senators where not directly elected by the populace but rather appointed by state legislatures. In these times of the non-stop attempts by the federal government to centralize its power and decrease the rights and powers of the states concern about states' rights is fully justified. And while I don't have an opinion one way or the other about the senatorial elections, the fact that a figure of the stature of Alan Keyes is concerned about the matter is certainly welcome news.
