Are you saying that the lobbying of senators and the election of same is a fraud or a waste of time? If I have read correctly, you are saying that governors should elect both of my state's two senators. Why would I trust Ahnold to do that? His first major act as governor was to accelerate the killing of stray animals. Fortunately someone explained to him that the extra week allows some of them to find homes. I don't want this guy picking my senator if he doesn't understand the value of giving abused animals a chance to find loving homes. Where's his mind?
Can you clarify your point for us?
Until the late 1914 all US senators were basically appointed by the various state govenors. Perhaps it is time to return these want-to-be-kings to the direct control of the common people as first envisioned under the consitution.
