Huckabee: Have Senators elected by state legislatures

Sorry, there is no going back

  • Mike Huckabee makes good points that Senators no longer represent the states.  Senators are simply the bought and paid for tools of warring Wall Street factions of billionaire cartels.
  • Unfortunately there is no going back.  The Sheeple, I mean people, think they elect Senators. The reality is they only are allowed to choose which open borders Wall Street faction will rule over them.

(CNS News)  -  It’s “[t]ime to repeal 17th Amendment,” former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee said in a tweet following the GOP’s failure to repeal Obamacare on Friday.
“Time to repeal 17th Amendment,” said former Governor Mike Huckabee in a tweet. “Founders had it right-Senators chosen by state legislatures. Will work for their states and respect 10th amid [sic].”
The 10th Amendment – part of the Bill of Rights – states that “The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.”
Stating that there is an “ignorance” regarding the history of the 17th Amendment, the former governor of Arkansas did not stop there, however.
“Ignorance of history of 17th Amendment is revealed by response to my earlier Tweet,” tweeted former Gov. Huckabee. “Direct election of Senate is major cause of #swamp.”

"The real owners are the big wealthy business interests that control things and make all the important decisions. Forget the politicians, they're an irrelevancy. The politicians are put there to give you the idea that you have freedom of choice. You don't. You have no choice. You have owners. They own you. They own everything. They own all the important land. They own and control the corporations.
They've long since bought and paid for the Senate, the Congress, the statehouses, the city halls. They've got the judges in their back pockets. And they own all the big media companies, so that they control just about all of the news and information you hear. They've got you by the balls. They spend billions of dollars every year lobbying ­ lobbying to get what they want. Well, we know what they want; they want more for themselves and less for everybody else."
