Petition

Whereas, United States Senators have shown that they no longer owe their allegiance to the people of their respective states, and

Whereas, the United States Senate has allowed itself to be corrupted by lobbyists and special interest groups, and

Whereas, United States Senators have proven, by voting against the interests of their constituents, their disdain for the American people, and

Whereas, the authors of the Constitution of the United States of America, being far more intelligent than any successive generation, therefore

WE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES, in order to form a more perfect Union, demand the repeal of Amendment XVII to the Constitution of the United States and replacing it with an amendment which re-states the original intent of Article 1, Section 3 of the Constitution of the United States as follows:  “The Senate of United States shall be composed of two Senators from each State, chosen by the Legislature therof for six years; and each Senator shall have one vote.  When vacancies happen in the representation of any State in the Senate, the executive authority of such State shall issue writs of election to fill such vacancies:  Provided, That the legislature of any State may empower the executive thereof to make temporary appointments until the people fill the vacancies by election as the legislature of said State may direct.  This amendment shall not be so construed as to affect the election or term of any Senator chosen before it becomes valid as part of the Constitution.”

If you agree with this, make a copy, put your name to it, and send it to your state and federal legislators.  If not, don’t complain when you get the government you deserve.
