Top Post: Repeal 17th Amendment

Top commented story today:

JTyler (RE: Fulcher OK with 17th Amendment repeal): Ok, I am not afraid. The term "Statesmen" was derived from the original Senators appointed by state legislators. That process set by the founding fathers worked well for over one hundred and a quarter years UNTIL under Woodrow Wilson and his progressive ideology he was able in 1913 to get an Amendment for; Income Tax, a Federal Reserve and changing of the checks and balances provided by State selection of Senators (17th Amendment) passed with the help of a liberal news media ( William Randolph Hearst). Sound familiar? Personally I will always side with our brilliant Founders before Woodrow Wilson. Now which side are you on?

DFO: I can think of several items that the founders had wrong -- allowing slavery, denying women the right to vote, etc.

Question: I stand by my premise that the USA would never allow the repeal of the 17th Amendment. So why do some individuals get worked up that it has a snowball's chance of being repealed someday?
