And America is excited by this news! One of our board members, our very own Utah State Senator Alvin Jackson, and has made the single most powerful move to restore the US Constitution by calling for the repeal of the 17th Amendment. Watch to learn why this is the first, most crucial step in restoring the Constitution and the balance of State and Federal Powers.
The Senate Needs their Claws
Our Founding Fathers knew that the natural course of human government is towards kingship. To battle that natural pull, they issued power to the U.S. Senate to represent the States. The people still vote their own representatives with the House of Representatives, but the Senate was meant to be something different. Repealing the 17th Amendment will take the power the Federal Government has been using to “buy” votes for Senators in the form of Federal bureaus and agencies.
The States are meant to protect us, as state citizens. Their wellbeing has been aligned with ours, but they have not been able to protect it. The reckless federal spending, the overpowered bureaus, and the laws passed against the will of the people, these and many other issues will be able to be solved once the States are able to give the Senate back their representation and protection.
