    When the country become less conservatives and more states are run by democratic bodies.  if this reform is made, it will be a melancholy day for American life. I am sure the conservatives will complain that it diminishes minority rights, which are always at threat in a democracy, where majorities rule.  If such a proposal is effected in the way that senators are chused, it will be a sad day for what used to be a great deliberative body.*

    *If it is good enough for Rand Paul, it should be good enough for anyone.
