Mr. Wells - I am not too sure how the 17th Amendment, which gives the PEOPLE the right to elect their Senators in a Government of the PEOPLE, by the PEOPLE and for the PEOPLE, moved toward “a dictatorial central government that has taken control over this nation”. We are seeing just how the state governments in many states today are protecting the rights of the PEOPLE by supressing the votes. I do, however agree, that many Senators do not pay attention to the "wants and desires" of their constituents.

It is called Gerrymandering Jane. Take a look at some of the Congressional districts. Legislatures don't have to worry about representing the people because they know they will be reelected. Both sides do it and it should be illegal.

Yes janesjoy, voter suppression through voter id. How dare anyone question the illegal immigrants you bus in to vote. How dare anyone ask that you simply verify that you are who you say you are. Obviously the point is to prevent blacks and hispanics from voting for the party of the handout. What other reason could there be? Im sure if the Republicans had the dead people you have voting Democrat voting for them you'ld be demanding life certificates. Democrats cant win a clean election and you sure as hell arent about to advocate for one.
