Flake flak over election of Senators is unwarranted

August 16, 2012

Congressman Jeff Flake has recently been taking flak over a comment he made at a political event. Flake confessed that he thought the drafters of the constitution might have been right to provide for selection of US Senators by the individual state legislatures rather than by popular elections. He is, of course, absolutely correct. Our founding founders knew this was one key way of maintaining our federal system and respecting the power of the states. However, in our politically correct world of today, where populism rules, any action that appears to take away someone’s vote is to be scorned and ridiculed. Pundits should take a course in the constitution and rethink this criticism. Flake deserves no flak over this.
