Still the worst amendment we ever passed(Posted by darkhorse on 12/7/12 at 5:13 pm)
It's still the 1 amendment we passed that put the power in the hands of the federal government moreso than the states.
There is a disconnect from the state to the national level in government. It use to be that the state government elected the US senators. It meant that the US senators were held accountable to the STATE government. now, to themselves moreso than anything.
The House was meant to represent the people.
The Sen was meant to represent the State government at the federal level.
HUGE shift in how this country has moved to the left.
