How else to explain the Georgia House GOP talking up a measure asking Congress to repeal the 17th Amendment, which made senators elected by the people instead of appointed by legislatures. In Georgia, with Republicans holding a supermajority in the General Assembly, there would be no question how such a shift would turn out.
This, of course, has the proverbial snowball’s chance in a blast furnace of getting anywhere. It takes two-thirds of all 50 states voting to do this, not just Georgia.
Now then, given the low regard with which the two major political parties are now held, a new amendment banning both Democrats and Republicans might have a chance ... were it not that it would take elected Democrats and Republicans to agree.
