Podcast Episode 175: Would Repealing the 17th Amendment Save Federalism?

I have argued that repealing the 17th Amendment would be a step in the right direction for restoring federalism in America, but would it be sufficient? Some “conservatives” stop there, thinking that once the 17th is gone, the States would wrest control of the government from the bureaucrats and bring some sanity to Washington. There may be some truth to this, but more would need to be done, including having an American polity that “thinks locally and acts locally.” I discuss all of this in Episode 175 of The Brion McClanahan Show.
