For the first time in many years according to a new Pew Poll.
Gee ya think that the current riots and negative depiction of the police have anything to do with this sudden return of common sense to Americans,

Harry Reid is about to get a rabid anti-gunner made surgeon general while no one is looking during the holidays, and before the senate changes hands.

bearcat6,

This sort of thing is WHY defeated congress-critters should LEAVE the halls of the Capitol as soon as they're defeated. = That way they couldn't MESS THINGS UP WORSE as a "lame duck".

And WHY "direct election of Senators" was/IS a REALLY BAD idea.= The 17th Amendment should be REPEALED.

just my OPINION, sw

SW, I whole heartedly absolutly AGREE! "Direct election" of the senators was a HORRIBLE IDEA!
"The people" already had representation -- in the House of Representatives, which is WHY it was NAMED that!
All the 17th amendment did was eliminate the political representation of the states.
I am glad that we have some people who aren't so overwhelmed by the supposed "beauty" of "democracy" that they forget our Founders did not intend us to BE a Democracy, but a Republic. With a Constitution as its legal backbone.

Eloquently put! I agree 100%. I know that I didn't realize that Senators were appointed by the States until I had my first college Poly Sci class.

And I THOUGHT I had a pretty good primary and secondary education. America was referred to as a Democracy all throughout my school days until then. That's when I learned about a Constitutional Republic, and Franklin's reported answer to a woman who asked what kind of Government we had.

"A republic if you can keep it."
