Repeal the 17th amendment

Let's pause for a moment and ponder the original genius of the United States Constitution, and the provision of having United States Senators selected by the various State Senates. Madison's vision increases the credibility and competence of the state legislatures, and also effectively blocks high net worth individuals from purchasing their seats as an attractive trinket. It also selects individuals with deep political skills rather than public relations skills, which are far more useful in the Senate.
