Re: [tips_and_tricks] Constitution & possible remedy!
The union Constitution is a direct document
between the People of the union and the
public servants of the union who secure their
rights in all constitutional manners.
The union Constitution does not even see the states.
States have no rights so it does not affect them.

In my opinion, when the 17th Amendment was declared as being ratified, the union of states was dissolved. The Constitution of 1787 was between the states and federal government (three branches). When the states gave up their right to vote in the Congress (Senate) for all practical purposes (my opinion) the Constitution 1787 was dissolved. The states that did not vote for the 17th Amendment, however, gave up their right to vote in the Congress by consent. Dumb answer???

I have some dumb questions... and since there are no dumb questions,
only dumb mistakes made by NOT asking those questions... here goes:
1. Is it not a "compelling state interest" to obey the original Constitution
as was in full force and effect when that "State" was admitted into the "union"?
[This was agreed to by said State as part & parcel of the "admittance".]
