What's wrong with Senate politics...

>> Wednesday, September 14, 2011

This:




Did you hear it? No? Check out her website. What does it say at the top in big bold letters?

Elizabeth Warren... for Massachusetts
 
That's right: FOR Massachusetts. Not America.

Is she's asking AMERICANS to support her bid to, ostensibly, represent the interests of Massachusetts? No! Hell, no! Does she wants to represent the interests of ALL Americans? No!

If she wants to represent the people of Massachusetts she should be running for a house district seat, this way she could represent the people of her district. But she's running for the senate, where, according to her own words, she'll represent the interests of her ideological constituency over those of her state. She wants your support, your money, whether you live in Massachusetts or not. And that is what's wrong with Senate politics. That's what's wrong with the 17th Amendment.

I have no doubt she means well, in her own democratically twisted way, but the senate has been corrupted by the 17th amendment, which should be repealed. Let senators return to the days when they were appointed by their state governors and represented the interests of their state... not the entire nation, and only one faction of the electorate at that.

Ridiculous post, EL. Of course the Senator of the state works for the interest of the people of their state. Otherwise Senators should be elected two from each state but by the entire voting populace of the country.

Ridiculous. Why don't you find something about her policies to complain about beside the banner on her website for crying out loud. Sheesh.

Jim is kind of right, in my opinion. A Senator is supposed to represent the State's interest in the Federal Government from what I understand.

I'm sure we can find plenty in her policies that are objectionable to right thinking Americans.

Hey Mark! We're both insane! Who knew?

Well, maybe I am, but that's how I understand the role of the Senate.

We can be insane and still right. Guess ELA flunked civics.

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
